Apple’s new M2 Pro and M2 Max chips: More power and graphics for the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro

Apple processors are one of the crown jewels for the tech giant: It has more and more powerful chip models, and they populate both its iPhone and now its desktop and laptop computers as it managed to break away from Intel and its Core.

Now, Apple has completed with the release of its second generation of computer processors 2 new models: M2 Pro and M2 MaxAs announced by the company in a statement.

2 new chips power updated versions of Apple’s professional notebooks: 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook ProThose who take advantage of its power and graphics for heavy tasks and with a heavy graphic load.

The chips complete the second generation, in which since the middle of last year m 2Which already populates a number of models like the iPad Pro and MacBook Air.

Both models share some features, such as the use of a 16-core neural engine capable of performing 15.8 trillion operations per second, a 40% increase over the previous generation, which improves performance for artificial intelligence tasks. It also helps in reducing noise.

2 chips are designed for professional users, especially those in the creative field, as they allow for the reproduction of a variety of 4K and 8K ProRes video sequences.

M2 Pro Specifications

Apple’s M2 Pro is made with 5 nanometer architecture The second generation and has 40,000 million transistors, which is 20% more than the M1 Pro and twice as many as the standard M2.

Apple has also improved its chip Integrated bandwidth, with up to 200 GB per second That’s also twice the size of the base M2, with 32GB of low-latency unified memory.

‘This is not a year for technology companies’, unless you are Apple: Will 2023 be as good as last year or are dark clouds coming?

Processor CPU has 10 or 12 coresOf which up to 8 are high-performance and the other 4 are efficiency-oriented, with up to 20% improvement in multithreaded tasks compared to the previous professional model.

At the graphics level, its configuration can reach up to 19 cores.3 over the M1 Pro, with the team’s graphics being up to 30% faster.

M2 Max Features

The M2 Max is the highest performing model of the 2 offered by Apple.

passed 67 billion transistors (10 billion more than the M1 Max and nearly three times that of the M2), as well as 400GB per second of integrated memory bandwidth, with 96MB of high-speed integrated memory.

It has the same 12-core CPU as the M2 Pro, but its GPU increases significantly in power: it reaches 38 cores, with which its graphics speed is increased by 30% compared to the M1 Max.
