At WWDC22 some time ago, Apple took out the next-generation M2 chip, claiming that the CPU performance has increased by 18%, the GPU performance has increased by 35%, and the AI computing performance has increased by 40%. Apple will soon sell the new MacBook Pro with an upgraded M2 chip, there are already benchmark results for the new chip on the Internet.
It may be that some media who got the prototype for evaluation in advance accidentally uploaded the running score online. So on the popular Geekbench 5 website, there is a Mac14,7 equipped with an M2 chip, which should be the new 13-inch MacBook Pro. Its single-threaded total score of 1919, and its multi-threaded total score of 8928. It can be seen that the single-threaded performance of Apple’s generation of chips has indeed improved a lot, which is 10% faster than M1.
However, the overall score of Geekbench 5 is known to be inaccurate. Therefore, looking at the scores of integer and floating-point operations will better reflect the performance of the CPU, and in these two sub-scores, the single-threaded integer score of the M2 is 1759 and the floating-point score is 2083. The multi-threaded integer score is 8196 and the floating-point operation score is 9840. Compared with the M1, it is indeed a significant improvement as Apple’s promotion.
In addition, in terms of GPU, the M2 chip upgraded to 10 cores has a running score of 30627, which is a 67% improvement compared to the M1. As for AI computing and video processing capabilities, as well as the results of more benchmarking software, you should pay attention to the media evaluation next week to see how much progress will be made.
