The iMac Pro, along with being Apple’s most powerful Mac computer, might also be the company’s first to feature an A-series processor.

Over the weekend, several developers — including Johnathan Levin, Steve Troughton-Smith and Guilherme Rambo — began to dig into the BridgeOS 2.0 software package released by Apple. And, according to their findings, it’s looking like the iMac Pro will feature an ARM-based A10 Fusion coprocessor.

Yes, that’s the same SoC used in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. And it would mark the first time that Apple has used a proprietary A-series chipset in its Mac machines.

Previously, Apple shipped a custom-designed ARM chip called the T1 to power the Touch Bar in its MacBook Pro. But this is a step further than that.
