As the first company with the most advanced technology on the market every year, the strength of Apple's CPU R & D can be said to hang the entire mobile phone industry. This year's A14 has not run with the 5nm technology. According to the latest news, Apple has developed a CPU roadmap for the next five years, and will launch a 2nm A18 processor as soon as 2024. Meanwhile, the performance of IPC will increase by 15-30% every year.
Starting from the generation of A14 processor in 2020, Apple's CPU in the future will not only be used in mobile phones, tablets, smart watches and other products, but also develop routes for MAC computers, which is also an important change. Let's see the prediction of topology Research Institute.
The first is the CPU in 2020. The A14 processor used in the iPhone 12 series of mobile phones is no longer in suspense. TSMC's 5nm process, the new iPad / iPad Pro may use the a14x processor (it may not be officially launched until 2021), and the apple watch is the new S6 processor.
It's not sure whether the desktop CPU of Mac will be launched in 2020. The previous news said that Apple will only announce the news this year, and the new arm desktop processor will be officially launched in 2021. However, it's possible to use a14x to revise this year.
In 2021,Apple will have a 5nm A15 for iPhone S7, applicable to Apple Watch are most likely to apply to iPad and almost certainly to commercial versions of Mac laptops (e.g.
In 2022,Apple will launch 3nm a16 for iPhone S8, suitable for Apple Watch may be suitable for iPad second-generation Mac laptop and desktop chips, as well as 5 or 3 smart glasses chips that may be suitable for Apple development.
The year 2023 is three nm A17 for iPhone., S9 for Apple watch, a17x for iPad, 3rd generation MAC laptop and desktop chips, and 5 or 3nm Apple smart glasses chips.
In 2024 / 2025, Apple will launch 2nm A18 for iPhone, S10 for Apple watch, a17x / a18x for iPad, 4th generation MAC laptop and desktop chips, and 2nd generation 3nm Apple smart glasses chips.
It is worth noting that, in addition to the new technology to enhance the life, PingThe processor will also focus on improving performance. The performance of IPC will increase by 15% to 30% every year, and that of multi-core will increase by 40% to 200%, depending on the overall priority of apple every year.
