Apple is slated to launch new Macs early next year. Just like every other Apple product, the upcoming Macs too have received a fair share of rumors and constant headlines on popular news portals. Today, there’s another instance where reports have mushroomed teasing two unreleased Mac models that were spotted on Steam’s database indicating memory, model, and CPU type among other information.

2 Unreleased Macs Spotted on Steam

According to Steam’s November 2022 survey that lists out hardware and software where Steam was used, two unreleased Macs carrying identifiers “Mac14,6” and “Mac15.4” were spotted among others. Steam gives a percentage corresponding to each of the devices used that gives a context on how many types of devices used Steam and in what proportion.

Interestingly, mentions of both Mac14,6 and Mac15,4 says 0.00% as change which means the very slightest of users tested Steam on these devices. It is possible that Apple has been testing out these two Macs on Steam powered by the upcoming Apple M2 Mac silicon.

Note that the Mac14,6 has been discovered earlier at two separate GeekBench instances. For the unversed, the unreleased chip scored 2027 and 14888 in one Geekbench test while the other was at 1853 and 13855 points on single-core and multi-core tests respectively. It is believed to be the upcoming 14” and 16” MacBook Pros powered by an M2 Max chip.

The mention of Mac15,4 is somewhere new as we have little to no information about it. No doubt it is an unreleased Mac, it could be a Mac Studio or MacBook although that remains to be seen.

Apple is gearing up for its next big launch earlier next year. There’s a Mac mini reportedly in the works too. The tech juggernaut is likely to launch a 14” and 16” MacBook Pro, Mac Pro (powered by Apple Silicon), and Mac Studio among others. The M2 compared to the M1 chip was 11% faster in terms of performance. Although M2 Pro and M2 Max chipsets are still at large, their performances might be in the same progression compared to their predecessors.
