According to the known Bloomberg journalist, Mark Gurman, the upcoming iMac might feature a more powerful M2X chip.
He says that the chip will replace the current generation of 27-inch iMac powered by Intel processors. The journalist wrote in his Power On newsletter that Apple has decided to increase the size of the compact version of iMac from 21.5 inches to a whopping 24 inches, which also leads to him speculating that the same thing will happen with the 27-inch iMac.
I absolutely still believe that a larger, redesigned iMac to replace the Intel 27-inch models is en route. Apple increasing the screen size of the smaller model from 21.5 inches to 24 inches seems to indicate that the 27-inch model could see a size increase as well. I don’t think, however, that Apple will launch the larger model with the same M1 chip that’s in the smaller model. It likely will be an M1X, the beefier version of the current M1, or an M2X.
We all know that Apple has been working with in-house processors for quite a few years, including experimenting with a bigger iMac. However, according to reports, the development for that version was paused so Apple could redirect resources to the newly redesigned 24-inch model.
Only time can tell if Gurman’s predictions come true or not.
