The company is said to have spoken to Apple insiders and is close to completing production of the M4 computer chip, according to Bloomberg. The chips will have artificial intelligence capabilities, and Apple reportedly plans to put them into every new Mac model.

The Bloomberg report also claims that the iMac, low-end 14-inch MacBook Pro, high-end 14-inch MacBook Pro, 16-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac mini will be the first computers equipped with the updated M4 chip. According to reports, Apple plans to launch 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air in spring 2025, followed by Mac Studio and Mac Pro later this year.

Mac M4 chips will come in three different levels: Donan, Brava and Hidra

Bloomberg reports that the M4 Mac chips will be divided into three different levels, codenamed Donan, Brava and Hidra. The Donan chip is an entry-level chip that will be added to entry-level machines such as Macbook Airs, Mac Minis, and entry-level Macbook Pros.

The Brava chip is a step up from that, and will be reserved for higher-spec machines like the Mac Studio, MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini. In the meantime, the Hidra chip will become the leader and be reserved for the high-end Mac Pro.

According to MacRumours, desktop Mac computers equipped with the M4 chip can support up to 512GB of unified memory. By comparison, desktop Macs currently have a memory limit of 192GB.

Last year’s artificial intelligence revolution led many competitors, including Intel and Qualcomm, to develop their own AI chips. Reuters previously reported that the PC industry hopes to spark a computer renaissance by developing artificial intelligence chips that can perform tasks such as summarizing documents without sending any additional data to the cloud.
