Apple’s self-research GPU will launch its code-ed Lifuka in the second half of next year.

Apple, which unveiled its own Mac CPU plan in June, will also launch its own GPU, aftermedia reported that Apple’s self-developed Mac processor uses Apple’s GPU and does not support third-party GPUs. In its latest report,media said Apple’s self-research GPU, code- called “Lifuka”, is progressing well and will be launched in the second half of next year.

Although no more details have been released,media reported that Apple’s self-research GPU than other manufacturers of GPUs, will have higher computing power, but also have higher energy efficiency.

Self-study CPUs and GPUs help Apple build a more ecosystem and improve product performance, and in Apple’s hardware products, the iPhone, iPad and AppleWatch have self-developed processors, leaving the Mac product line.

And as Apple unveils its ARM-based self-research Mac processor program at the World Developers Conference (WWDC), which opens on June 22, Mac processors will also be on the path to self-research, with the first self-developed Mac scheduled to ship by the end of the year, and the Mac product line gradually shifting to self-research processors, with Intel processors gradually fading out of Apple’s Mac product line in two years.

In addition to self-research Mac processors replacing Intel CPUs, Apple’s self-research GPU will replace AMD products, in terms of GPUs, Apple has previously relied more on AMD, next year after the launch of self-research GPU, AMD will eventually lose Apple’s GPU orders.
