A new report spotted by Patently Apple suggest that Apple may begin to focus more on esports, or the gaming market with a gaming centered Mac next year. The rumor out of Taiwan says:

Apple is planning to launch an e-sports-centric PC next year with a unit price of up to $ 5,000 (about NT $ 152,100), which will be the first time that Apple has entered the e-sports PC field.

The specs of the rumored device are limited, however, the report notes that it could be all in one Mac, meaning the display and actual computer are in one piece of hardware, or a large screen laptop, similar to Razar and others.

The rumor suggests that Apple could use this opportunity to rework its Mac lineup and enter a new industry that it had not previously been apart of. The report says, via Patently Apple that “The industry expects that the gross profit margin of Apple’s supply chain manufacturers will be positive. (The global e-sports market is expected to leap by $ 1 billion )”

Production-wise, Apple’s assembly plants which are “Quanta, major chip suppliers, TSMC, enclosure manufacturer Hongzhun and Kecheng, power supply manufacturer Delta and Lite-On, fan construction standards, wire factory Liangwei, etc., are expected to benefit from The new growth force of Apple gaming PC.”
