MacBook Air M2: Here are the First Benchmarks of the Apple device

- Advertisement -

An early benchmark result for the new MacBook Air has appeared, giving users a closer look at how well the notebook’s M2 chip performs. The MacBook Air with the M2 chip and 16GB of unified memory received a single-core score of 1,899 and a multi-core score of 8,965 in a Geekbench 5 result that “Mr. Macintosh” discovered on Twitter.

These results are nearly equal to those obtained by the 13-inch MacBook Pro equipped with the M2 chip, proving that the notebooks perform almost identically in simulated testing, as was the case with the M1 versions.

Although the M2 chip in the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro performs similarly in Geekbench testing, the MacBook Pro might still perform better in actual use under prolonged, taxing workloads since, in contrast to the MacBook Air, it lacks a fan.

The outcome also shows that, despite being roughly $5,000 less expensive, the M2 MacBook Air performs better than the entry-level Mac Pro tower with an 8-core Intel Xeon W processor. Although not an exact comparison, it nonetheless shows the outstanding performance of Apple silicon CPUs in less expensive Macs.

The presence of a single NAND storage chip in the base M2 MacBook Air model with a 256GB SSD is yet unknown. Due to having a single 256GB storage chip rather than two 128GB chips, the base model M2 MacBook Pro has much slower SSD speeds than the similar M1 model, which was discovered last month. Slower SSD speeds occasionally have an influence on system performance because of virtual memory swapping.
