Apple Releases M2 Pro and M2 Max: 20 Percent Faster, Up to 19 GPU Cores

Despite reports of M2 Pro and M2 Max based products being delayed again, Apple today announced the launch of new MacBook Pros and Mac Minis with new SoCs. The M2 Pro and M2 Max are more powerful versions of the M2 that launched on the MacBook Air last year.

As Apple describes it, the M2 Pro “scales up” the M2, offering customers 10 or 12 CPU cores and up to 19 GPU cores. The 12-core configuration has 8 high-performance cores and 4 efficiency cores. For comparison, the MacBook Air M2 has an 8-core CPU and either an 8-core or 10-core GPU. The M2 Pro can also be paired with up to 32GB of unified memory.
