Apple: New monitors with their own chips in the works, including Pro Display XDR update

from Oliver Jaeger
As Bloomberg author and Apple expert Mark Gurman reported, Apple is probably working on new external monitors. Among other things, this should also include an update of the Pro Display XDR, which was released with the Mac Pro 2019. The new monitors should be based on Apple chips, like the Studio Display on the A13 Bionic.

While Apple would like to become independent of Intel chips and move final assembly from Texas to Asia, it is said to have other hardware in the works. This is about external monitors, as Bloomberg author and industry expert Mark Gurman writes in a detailed article. Among the new monitors is said to be an upgraded version of the Pro Display XDR, which was launched in 2019 together with the Mac Pro, the latter of which was still powered by an Intel chip at the time.

The new monitors should then do without Intel’s CPU support and be enriched with their own chips. This is to help the monitor rely less on the resources of the connected computer. This was already the case with the Studio Display that appeared at the beginning of March this year. This has an A13 Bionic chip under the hood and was introduced together with the Mac Studio. Mark Gurman has not said anything about the window in which the monitors could appear, but the next high-end display is expected to ship after the Mac Pro with the Apple chip, as this is further in the development phase.

It remains to be seen whether a new studio display could also be slumbering under the said external monitors. In October, display industry consultant Ross Young pointed out that Apple plans to release a 27-inch mini-LED display in the first quarter of 2023. With this data one could assume that this is a new studio display with ProMotion.
