Leaked benchmarks confirm that the M2 chip is 20% faster than the M1
Apple’s new M2 chip is 20 percent faster than the M1 chip in terms of multi-core performance, according to M2 benchmarks leaked from the upcoming 13-inch MacBook Pro found on Geekbench today.
Running at 3.49GHz compared to 3.2GHz for the M1, the 2M2 achieved a single-core score of 1919, approximately 12% faster than the 7M1 13-inch MacBook Pro’s 1707 single-core score. The 2M2 achieved a multi-core score of 8928, which is about 20 percent higher than the 7419 score of the 1M1 model.
Apple claims that the M2 chip is up to 18 percent faster than the M1, so the Geekbench 5 test is in line with Apple’s claims.
For the metal benchmark, the ‘M2’ chip scored 30627 points, a significant improvement over the 21001 points scored by M1. The M2 chip offers up to a 10-core GPU compared to the 8-core Max M1.
The M2 chip is available in the new 2022 MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro. Apple has not announced when the MacBook Air will launch, but the new MacBook Pro will be available for pre-order from Friday, June 17.
