There were many rumors that once Apple will provide the Mac computer on the basis of the ARM processor. It did not happen yet though in MacBook Pro the specialized single-crystal T1 Apple systems on the basis of architecture of ARM are used (is responsible generally for operation of the touchpad Touch Bar). iMac Pro will give more, than you think!
It seems that this approach will be continued also in future desktop computers of the kupertinsky company, and this time it is already about transfer of the full-fledged chip of a series A from mobile devices.
According to data of developers Steve Troughton-Smith and Johnathan Levin who analyzed a code in the BridgeOS 2.0 Apple tools, monoblocks of iMac Pro can quite receive as the coprocessor the single-crystal A10 Fusion system from 512 MB of the selected random access memory (the same chipset that is applied in iPhones 7 and 7 Plus).
For what such system will be used — it is difficult to tell. It is only possible to assume that it will allow Apple to transfer without excess difficulties opportunities necessary for it from the mobile iOS platform to table macOS and also to use proprietary hardware advantages of the chips.
In particular, he, apparently, will be responsible for loading process and safety features like Pay Apple. Judging by the additional analysis of a code the developer Guilherme Rambo, in iMac Pro function of voice activation Siri will appear — perhaps better its operation requires A10 Fusion too. Initially Apple announced iMac Pro during WWDC this year, but at that time she told nothing about appearance in computers of A10 Fusion chips.
According to waitings, new monoblocks will support powerful Intel processors of Xeon up to 18-core monsters. Anyway, but already soon everything will be explained — full start of iMac Pro is expected until the end of the year — quite recently the new monoblock was shown “alive”.
