LPDDR5X not supported

Yesterday, Apple introduced the new MacBook Pro and the new Mac mini based on the M2 Pro SoC. This platform has become more productive than its predecessor, and now we have a more detailed look at this SoC.

Let’s start with the fact that, contrary to rumors, the new platform does not support LPDDR5X, limiting itself to supporting LPDDR5, like M2. You can also see that, despite the unusual odd number of GPU cores, there are just so many on the chip, that is, the M2 Pro does not have any locked cores. 

It can be seen that the GPU occupies an impressive share of the single-chip system, and two CPU clusters with large and small cores are also clearly visible. A 16-core NPU can’t be called small either – it’s about the same size as a small processor cluster.  

Recall that Apple compares its new platforms on the site with a four-year-old Intel CPU . In addition, today we learned that the new MacBook Pro is equipped with an HDMI 2.1 interface .
