- The 13-inch MacBook Pro with M2 scores about 20 percent higher than the previous model in latest benchmarks.
- Apple unveiled the M2 chip as the successor to the M1, with support for up to 24GB of RAM and more bandwidth.
The new M2 chip is up to 20 percent faster than Apple’s M1 in multi-core performance. The figure was revealed in leaked benchmarks of the new 13-inch MacBook Pro, which is available to pre-order on Friday.
The M2 has a single-core score of 1,919 and a multi-core score of 8,928, compared to the 1,707 and 7,419 scores of the M1 13-inch model. The M2 also has a higher clock speed, at 3.49GHz, up from 3.2GHz.
While the performance gains of the M2 chip aren’t ground-breaking, it’s important to note that Apple is expected to move to a 3-nanometer process with the M2 Pro or M3 chips. This should bring significant performance increases.
