In early June this year, Apple released a new generation of M2 processors, which are used in the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 13 notebooks. According to rumors, Apple has also prepared M2 Pro, M2 Max, and even M2 Ultra, which are expected to be upgraded to 4nm or even 3nm process, thus completing a comprehensive iteration of the M1 family.
For the first time, the M2 Max appeared in the GeekBench 5 database, and 12 cores were detected. Compared with the M1 Max, there are two more, but it is not known whether the extra cores are large cores or small cores.
The core base frequency is 3.54GHz, and the maximum acceleration can reach 3.7GHz. The matching unified memory capacity is 96GB LPDDR5, which has increased by half compared to M1 Max 64GB.
The running points are 1889 for single core and 14586 for multi-core, which are about 10% and 20% higher than M1 Max respectively, and both have reached the level of the 12th generation Core i7-12700K.
It is reported that Apple is expected to upgrade the MacBook Pro 14/16, Mac mini, and Mac Pro in the first quarter of next year, equipped with M2 Pro and M2 Max.
There are rumors that Apple is still preparing a more top-level M2 Ultra for the Mac Pro, equipped with 24 CPU cores, 76 GPU cores, or even 48 CPU cores, 152 GPU cores, and integrated 256GB of memory at the same time, which is really scary.
