Apple Levels Up Processing Power by Introducing the M2 Pro and M2 Max

One of the biggest changes that Apple made in the past few years was to start manufacturing its processing chips inhouse, with the M1 chip being the first iteration of their new line. This chip was first introduced in the 2021 version of the MacBook Pro, and Apple just announced the next version of this system on a chip to take their processing power to the next level.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that the two new chips that have been introduced are called the M2 Pro as well as the M2 Max. Starting with the M2 Pro, this chip has an incredible bandwidth of around 200 gigabytes, along with approximately 32 gigabytes of RAM on offer.


The M2 Pro is going to have at least 10 cores, with some reports suggesting that this might go all the way up to 12 with all things having been considered and taken into account. This means that it will be 20% faster than its predecessor, thereby making Macs better suited to gaming than might have been the case otherwise.


This chip goes even further into the realm of maximum processing power by offering up to 19 cores, the M2 Pro is even better for gamers because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up offering 30% better graphics.

As for the M2 Max, it offers a ridiculous 400 gigabytes of memory bandwidth, along with 96 gigabytes of unified memory! It also has the capacity for up to 39 separate cores, and it’s hard to imagine processing power getting any better than that.

It will be interesting to see how these chips function in real world settings. Chances are that they will make Apple’s next MacBook a revolutionary device, especially when you factor in its value for gamers, coders as well as anyone else that requires exceptional processing power. Efficiency is the name of the game, and Apple is really winning on that front which is truly impressive.
