Next-Generation MacBook Pros Rumored to Feature ‘Very High-Bandwidth’ RAM

Apple’s next-generation 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips will feature “very high-bandwidth, high-speed RAM,” according to reports.

The current 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models feature Samsung’s LPDDR5 RAM, with the M1 Pro chip offering up to 200 GB/s of memory bandwidth and the M1 Max chip reaching 400 GB/s. It is speculated that the next MacBook Pro models may feature Samsung’s latest LPDDR5X RAM, which increases memory bandwidth by up to 33% and reduces power consumption by up to 20%. This will result in a memory bandwidth of up to 300 GB/s for the M2 Pro and up to 600 GB/s for the M2 Max.

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman expects the next-gen MacBook Pro to have few changes aside from the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. At this point, the laptop could be released as early as November, with a press release on the Apple Newsroom website. Apple has introduced new Macs in November several times in recent years, including the original 16-inch MacBook Pro in 2019 and the first three Macs with the M1 chip in 2020.

The current 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips were released in October 2021 with a complete redesign, a notch in the display, and the addition of HDMI, MagSafe, and SD card reading Cards and other ports.
