The new Apple M1 Ultra SoC literally has two M1 Max SoCs combined together with Apple's newly-announced UltraFusion -- UltraFusion is an innovative packaging architecture that interconnects the die of each M1 Max chip to create a single, monster Apple M1 Ultra SoC -- impressive to see.

Inside, the M1 Ultra packs a huge 114 billion transistors (that's 114,000,000,000) which is the most ever in a personal chip. Apple has up to 128GB of high-bandwidth, low-latency unified memory that sits next to a 20-core CPU, 64-core GPU, and 32-core Neural Engine.
