“Apple is close to finally updating the Mac Pro,” Steve Lo reports for M.I.C. Gadget.
“Intel will be moving to its Ivy Bridge platform in April, and this will solve heating issues. How does it do that? Well, with its 22nm (extremely efficient) manufacturing process, it is very efficient in operation in comparison to the previous Sandy Bridge,” Lo reports. “More importantly, the old transistor types are gone, and replaced by ‘tri-gate’ transistors. According to our sources, those transistors are 30%+ more efficient with heat dissipation.”
Lo reports, “Basically, we are going from two high performing 6 cores, to two even higher performing 8 cores. The updated chipset will also help the performance greatly over the previous generation.”
