Apple unveils World's Most Powerful CPUs

Jan 18

The M2 Pro adds a 12-core CPU, 19-core GPU, and 32GB of high-speed unified memory to the M2. M2 Max adds 38-core GPUs, double the unified memory bandwidth, and 96GB of unified memory to M2 Pro.

The M2 Pro has 40 billion transistors, 20% more than the M1 Pro and twice as many as the M2. The processor has up to 32GB of low-latency unified memory and 200GB/s unified memory bandwidth, double the M2. The new 10- or 12-core CPUs have eight high-performance cores and four efficiency cores, making them 20% quicker than the M1 Pro's 10-core CPU. Xcode compiles 2.5 times faster than the fastest Intel MacBook Pro models and Adobe Photoshop works at record speeds.

The M2 Pro's GPU has three extra cores and a bigger L2 cache. Graphics processing speed is 30% quicker than the M1 Pro CPU, enabling console-quality gaming.

The M2 Max has 67 billion transistors, 10 billion more than the M1 Max and three times the M2 chip. It supports up to 96GB of high-speed unified memory and opens huge files instantly and smoothly across numerous professional-grade apps with a unified memory bandwidth of 400GB/s, twice that of the M2 Pro chip and four times that of the M2 chip.

The M2 Max has the same next-generation 12-core CPU as the M2 Pro. With 38 cores and a bigger L2 cache, the GPU is more powerful. Graphics processing is 30% faster. The new MacBook Pro with M2 Max can perform graphics-intensive projects other systems can't with 96GB of memory. The MacBook Pro with the M2 Max chip runs visual effects, trains machine learning models, and stitches billion-pixel images faster whether plugged in or battery-powered.

Apple's next-generation 16-core neural network processor provides 15.8 megabits per second, 40% quicker than its predecessor, in M2 Pro and M2 Max.
A robust and efficient media engine with hardware-accelerated H.264, HEVC, and ProRes video encoding and decoding allows multi-channel 4K and 8K ProRes video playback with low power consumption on the M2 Pro. M2 Max encodes video twice as fast as M2 Pro with two video and two ProRes engines.
With computational film technology and the Neural Network Engine, Apple's latest image processor (ISP) reduces noise and improves camera image quality.
Apple's top-notch security relies on new "security zones."

Apple's Malaysian website now sells the new MacBook Pro and Mac mini for RM8,799 and RM2,499, respectively! If you want to know when they will be available in Malaysia, follow Zing Gadget!
