The road to 10nm Intel Cannon Lake has been very bumpy indeed but now we are getting word of the next Apple MacBook Pro laptops that could feature Intel Cannon Lake CPUs. Another interesting thing to note here is that these chips will allow the upcoming MacBook Pro laptops to come with up to 32 GB of RAM. Intel 10 nm process has been delayed time and time again which makes me doubt that this upcoming MacBook Pro will feature Intel Cannon Lake.
Intel did say that they will be sampling a limited number of these chips and that mass production will start in 2019. Having that said it is possible that Apple is getting first dibs on the Intel Cannon Lake chips. The upcoming Apple MacBook Pro is supposed to be powered by the Core i3-8121U processor which is a dual-core chip with 4 threads.
The Core i3-8121U processor has a base clock of 2.2 GHz and can boost to 3.2 GHz. Seeing how this is a core i3 it is possible that not only will this be available in the entry-level MacBook Pro variants but in the MacBook as well. This is something that we will have to wait and see. You can check out the leaked specs of the Core i3-8121U processor below.
The interesting thing is that the upcoming MacBook will feature up to 32 GB of DDR4 2400 MHz RAM or LPDDR4 which is something to look forward to. We will keep you up to date regarding the matter.
The chip is stated to be coming out in the second quarter of 2018 so we need not wait too long. Let us know what you think about an upcoming Apple MacBook Pro that comes with Intel Cannon Lake chip and can support up to 32 GB of RAM. Would that be something that you would be interested in getting for yourself in the future?
