Apple promises better performance thanks to the M2 chip

The new MacBook Pro is available with up to 24 gigabytes of RAM, offers ProRes acceleration and, according to Apple, has a battery life of up to 20 hours on one charge. According to official information, it is slightly inferior to the larger 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models in terms of performance. The two devices already available use Apple’s M1 Pro and M1 Max chips. The CPU of the M2 is equipped with eight cores, the graphics unit now even uses ten cores. For processing RAW files in image editing programs, Apple promises around 40 percent more work speed than with the M1.
Thanks to support for Apple’s ProRes video format, the editing of video material in particular should be particularly quick. According to Apple, the MacBook Pro with the M2 chip can play up to eleven 4K streams and up to two streams in 8K resolution in parallel without faltering. Conversion to ProRes format should also be three times faster than before. With the release of the new macOS 13 Ventura in autumn 2022, Apple promises further optimizations that are specially tailored to the M2 chip.
