Apple has recently released its M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, which have been benchmarked on the popular software, Geekbench. The results show significant improvements in GPU performance when compared to the previous M1 chips. According to the Metal scores of the M2 Pro and M2 Max, the new MacBook Pros offer a nearly 30% increase in graphics performance.
However, it is worth noting that the high-end M1 Ultra chip, which was released for the Mac Studio last year, still outpaces the M2 Max by about 9%.
M1 Ultra: 94,583
M2 Max: 86,805
M1 Max: 64,708
M2 Pro: 52,691
M1 Pro: 39,758
Interestingly, the OpenCL scores for the M2 Max and M1 Ultra are quite similar. This suggests that while the M2 Max may have a slight edge in graphics performance, it is not a significant departure from the M1 Ultra.
In addition to the GPU improvements, the Geekbench results also revealed that the M2 Pro and M2 Max in the new MacBook Pros have single-core and multi-core scores of around 1,900 and 15,000, respectively. This means that the new chips offer up to 20% faster CPU performance compared to the M1 Pro and M1 Max, which is in line with Apple's advertised claims.
The new 14-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 Pro chip is now available for preorder, with deliveries beginning on January 24th, 2023.
