The first benchmark results for Apple’s M2 chip have surfaced online, comparing its multi-core performance on a 13-inch MacBook Pro to that of the M1 processor.
While Apple claims that the M2 chip is faster, the first benchmark results provide a more accurate picture of how it operates in practice. Thankfully, test results for the new MacBook Pro, which features the next-generation M2 chip, are already available, even ahead of the device’s June 17th release date.
According to CNBC, the 13-inch MacBook Pro will be the first gadget to have the new M2 processor, which will be available for pre-order on Friday.
The new CPU will also power the next-generation MacBook Air, which is expected to be announced soon, according to the news agency.
It’s worth mentioning that the new M2 CPU appears to be an improvement over the predecessor of the M1. The new Apple CPU has a clock speed of up to 3.49GHz. As a result, several analysts believe it will perform better than its predecessor.
According to a Mac Rumors report, Geekbench provided the first benchmark results for the all-new M2 chip
During the Geekbench 5 test, the new M2 chip, which runs at 3.49GHz, achieved an astounding single-core result of 1919. Its multi-core score, on the other hand, was slightly higher, at an astonishing 8928.
Meanwhile, on a single-core test, the earlier Apple M1, which runs at 3.2GHz, got only 1707. According to the benchmark leak, the new M2 improves performance by 11.56 percent.
The previous multi-score score for the M1 chip was 7419, which is over 20% lower than Apple’s most recent offering
To be more specific, the new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air’s processor beats its predecessor by roughly 19.45 percent. According to the first benchmark findings, the successor to the M1 microprocessor appears to give a significant performance boost.
The multi-core discoveries alone resulted in a 20% increase in overall performance. As a result, the performance of the all-new MacBook Pro and the 2022 MacBook Air has been greatly enhanced.
Aside from these accomplishments, the M2 chip also outperformed its predecessor in the Metal benchmark. The new processor scored a score of 30627, whereas the M1 only received a score of 21001, according to MacRumors.
