Apple Mac Pro Extreme not happening! Surprising reason behind this

Apple Mac Pro Extreme edition is not happening anytime soon. Here is all you need to know.

The Apple Mac Pro is currently the most powerful computer Apple makes, and its last update with the M1 Ultra chip boosted its performance to a different level. However, Apple introduced the M2 chip with the MacBook Air 2022 earlier in 2022 and Mac fans have been wanting an upgrade on these more powerful computers and there is news. Initially, there was news of Apple doing a Mac Pro with an M2 Extreme chipset, offering it as a highly powerful computer. Sadly, that doesn’t seem to be happening.

Based on fresh news from Bloomberg, it is said that Apple has ditched plans for a new highly powerful Mac Pro flaunting a M2 Extreme model. There has been a delay in launching a new Mac Pro and this explains why. Apple wanted to do the Mac Pro with the M2 Ultra and M2 Extreme chip. The report also mentions several reasons why Apple is ditching the Extreme version of the Mac Pro.

One of the main reasons behind ditching the M2 Extreme chip was the complexities of making the chip and its production. On top of that, Apple has been wondering whether consumers would be ready to shell that amount of money for its Mac Pro model. In today’s world, the Mac Pro would cost somewhere around $10000, which is a lot of money for a computer.

Nonetheless, Apple is now expected to announce new variants of the MacBook Pro models based on the M2 chip. In early 2023, Apple could announce the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. A new Mac Mini is also expected to break cover, and could rely on the M2 chip.

At the moment, the M2 chip is powering the 13.6-inch MacBook Air 2022 and the 13-inch MacBook Pro. From the iPad side, the M2 chip is powering the 11-inch iPad Pro and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Apple also continues to sell the M1 powered MacBook Air as the entry level model for its Mac lineup.
