At WWDC 2020, Apple said it would take two years to migrate its Mac product line to Apple Silicon. But in fact, the actual progress is not so fast, at least the Mac Pro does not use the M Series chip.
While the M-Series processor is exceptionally good, it's not perfect for top-of-the-line desktops like the Mac Pro.
A few days ago, some netizens turned out a ten years. The trash can. , the classic old Mac Pro, with a DIY processor upgrade to the 12-core Intel Xeon E5-2679 v2.
Running on macOS Monterey, GeekBench 5 runs showed thatWhile the single core is only 797 points, the multi-core is a whopping 7,792 points, which means the multi-core is better than the M1 MacBook Pro's 7390 points and 1,000 points worse than the M2.
Given that the product was made 10 years ago, the real gap seems unexpected.
Maybe it's for Apple not to worry about the extreme performance required for a battery life desktop, they're still polishing on the M2 Pro/Max/Ultra, or even waiting for the M3.
