Apple’s next-gen M2 by the numbers: A worthy encore to the M1

Apple’s next-gen M2 by the numbers: A worthy encore to the M1

We don't need to wait for benchmarks to get a good picture of how Apple's next Mac processor will perform.

When the first M1-based Macs were released in the fall of 2020, it's no exaggeration to say they shook up the entire computer market. Apple took the basic architecture of the A14 (found in the iPhone 12), scaled it up to ultraportable laptop levels, and blew away the competition. It was fast, very fast, and provided shockingly good battery life. With the M1 Pro and M1 Max in 2021, Apple scaled the architecture up further to performance laptops (and presumably upcoming desktops), and again became the processor against which all others were compared.
