The Apple Silicon M2 Pro and M2 Max processors are aptly named. Made to specifications meet the needs of users who want to get the most out of their computers..
The M2 Pro chip is simply not found on the new 14″ and 16″ MacBook Pro, also on the new Mac Mini. The M2 Max version is only available on MacBook Pros. That’s why the MacBook Air, released in 2020, is the last laptop in the Apple catalog with the M1 processor. The transition to “all M2” is almost complete.
M2 Pro and M2 Max chips replace all M1 chips except MacBook Air M1
Frankly, the M2 Pro chip is more powerful than the “simple” M2. In numbers, this gives 40 billion transistors (20% more than the M1 Pro chip and twice the M2 chip), 16 Neural Engines, 12 CPU cores and 19 GPU cores. Its combined RAM can reach 32GB. The M2 Max chip offers a GPU with up to 38 cores and triples the amount of RAM. he can reach 96GB is an option that costs €1380.
The M2 Pro and M2 Max chips are designed specifically for graphic designers and other editors. Her performance 40% better than M1 Pro, even 80% on an Intel i9 processor in Photoshop. The 16-inch MacBook Pro M2 Max is 30% faster in graphics processing than the M1 Max version.
Apple, of course, emphasizes energy efficiency as well as performance. In the Cupertino company’s own words, “market-leading performance per watt makes it the world’s most The most powerful and energy efficient chip ever found in a laptop professional”. This is to be verified, of course, but the company claims its computers can keep them out of the way until 10 o’clock.
