Two days ago, Apple quietly announced the new MacBook 14/16, mainly by upgrading the M2 Pro and M2 Max processors. Yesterday, the MacBook processor running on the M2 Pro was revealed for the first time. Apple said that the CPU performance of the M2 Pro is up to 20% faster than that of the M1 Pro. GPU performance is improved by up to 30%.
Now Apple M2 Pro, M2 Max GPU achievements also appear in GeekBench running library.
The M2 Max, which has 38 GPU cores, scored 86,805 points, 34.1% higher than the previous M2 Pro's 64,708 points.
The score is close to the 94,583 scored by Apple's high-end M1 Ultra chip last year, a difference of just 9 percent, which is in line with Apple's claim.
Even the 19-core M2 Pro scored 64,708 points, which is a 32.5% GPU performance improvement compared to 39,758 points of the previous generation M1 Pro.
According to the data, Apple M2 Pro based on the second generation of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing 5nm process, the number of transistors reached 40 billion, compared to the previous generation of M1 Pro 33.7 billion transistors more than 20%.
The more powerful M2 Max, also based on TSMC's second-generation 5nm process, has 67 billion transistors, 10 billion more than the previous M1 Max, a 17.5% increase and more than three times the M2.
It also includes a video encoding/decoding engine and a ProRes engine, which provide a premium to optimized software and support a wide range of mainstream video codecs, significantly increasing the speed of professional video workflows while consuming less power.
