Apple’s M2 chip up to 20% faster than M1

Apple recently unveiled its latest entry in its MacBook lineup of notebooks, which were powered by its new M2 chipset. Now, a leaked benchmark has revealed the performance bump offered by its M2 chip over the previous generation’s M1 chip.

The news arrives from a leaked benchmark on GeekBench. This benchmark was of the newly announced 13 inch MacBook Pro that was running on the M2. The chip had a clock speed of around 3.49GHz, which is higher than the 3.2GHz of the last gen M1 chipset. The M2 managed to get a score of 1919 points in single core tests and 8928 points in the multi score tests.

In other words, the M2 was 12 percent faster than the M1 in single core, since it achieved just 1707 points, and up to 20 percent faster in multi core tests, with the M1 getting just 7419 points. This basically hints at the M2 being around 18 percent faster than the M1 overall, when considering the GeekBench 5 listing. However, that is not all, as the M2 chip scored 30,627 points in the Metal benchmark, which is quite a bit higher than the M1’s 21,001 score.

This is likely possible thanks to the 10 core GPU on the M2, over the M1’s 8 core GPU. As of right now, the latest generation of proprietary Apple chip is only available on the new 2022 MacBook Air and the 13 inch MacBook Pro model. Although, the Cupertino based giant is expected to announced new models that will feature the M2 soon. So stick around for more updates. Gizmochina
