From what I've read the smaller model will be Apple Silicon only. This makes sense because the Apple SoC uses a lot less power and runs much cooler than any Intel Xeon. The small chassis couldn't hold a big enough PSU or enough fans for cooling the Intel CPU/Chipset.
Yes read that as well thats the 1/2 size will use Apple SoC - but I'm selfishly hoping that they offer intel as well - like how they offer intel for the higher level Mac Book Pros in addition to the M1.
