Thought Apple's M1 chip was fast? Meet the M1X

According to a reliable source, Apple is about to take things up a gear. Since arm-ing (sorry) its most recent MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Mini with the new technology (which was developed to replace the industry-standard Intel chips), Apple has reportedly been working on a next-level version – the M1X. Don't get too attached to the name, though, as it isn't yet confirmed. 

Although the new MacBooks already boast vastly-improved and impressive battery life, according to this leak, things are about to get even better, with a source quoted as stating "if you think M1 is fast, you haven’t seen M1X". We bet the new chip will mean the new MacBooks will head straight to the top of our most powerful laptops guide.
