The laptop with M2 Pro has a 10-core or 12-core CPU which ensures performance up to 20% higher compared to the M1 Pro chip. The latest generation GPU, i.e. the graphics unit, with up to 19 cores offers up to 30% higher graphics performance, while the Neural Engine (i.e. the microprocessor that takes care of sewing the phone’s functions around to the needs of those who use it, learning from their habits) is 40% faster in activities such as video analysis and image processing. Video encodings are also faster. To understand each other, using Adobe Photoshop is up to 80% faster compared to the highest performing MacBook Pro model with Intel processor and up to 40% faster than the previous generation.

MacBook Pro with M2 Max – like the other equipped with Liquid Retina XDR mini-LED panel – push workflows to the limit with a monster graphics unit up to 38-cores significantly larger in size and up to 30% better graphics performance than the M1 Max chip.
