Apple is preparing to introduce the next generation A18 and M4 chips, significantly enhancing the artificial intelligence capabilities of its future devices. Recent reports indicate that in addition to enhancing the AI computing capabilities of the M3 and A17 processors, the upcoming A18 and M4 chips will significantly upgrade the Neural Engine, marking a substantial leap in AI processing capability compared to current models. The A18 chip, designed for the iPhone 16 Pro to be released this autumn, as well as the M4 chip for future or end-of-year iMac and MacBook Pro products, are expected to feature a neural engine with more cores than the current A and M series processors, exceeding a configuration of 16 cores.

Apple and Nvidia are pushing the boundaries of chip technology, with each company bringing its innovative advancements. The configurations of Apple's A18 and M4 chips are set to revolutionize its product line with enhanced AI capabilities. They are expected to bring significant improvements in single-core performance and have the potential to surpass Nvidia's products in specific benchmark tests. Designed with generative AI as a focal point, this signifies Apple's commitment to integrating AI more deeply into its devices.

Nvidia's H100 GPU, codenamed Hopper, represents a significant leap in AI and high-performance computing (HPC). Compared to the previous generation, it achieves up to 4 times faster AI training for the largest models and up to 30 times faster AI inference. This chip serves as a powerful driving force for AI research and development, showcasing Nvidia's leadership in the AI and HPC domains.

While Apple's chips are tailored for consumer electronics, enhancing the performance and AI capabilities of iPhones and Macs, Nvidia's H100 targets the data center and AI research markets, emphasizing speed and efficiency in AI model training and inference. Both companies are advancing chip technology, but with different focuses: Apple concentrates on consumer devices, while Nvidia focuses on AI and HPC infrastructure.
