        I can personally confirm that they are running on the main AP cores.

        It’s however possible that Xcode public tools won’t have support for it, and apps would only use it through Accelerate.framework in that case. (support for AMX in Accelerate.framework is already done since a long time)

            Apple don’t sell CPUs, they sell devices. So who GaF if they have proprietary ISA extensions? It’s not like we need binary portability between your phone and your desktop.
