San Francisco: The new M2 chipset, which was developed by the tech giant Apple and is used in the most recent iteration of the MacBook product line, is up to 20 percent quicker than the older M1 chipset.
GizmoChina claims that the info was obtained through a benchmark that was inappropriately shared on GeekBench. This benchmark was performed on the recently released 13-inch MacBook Pro that was powered by the M2.
There was a 3.49 GHz clock speed, which is more than twice as fast as that of the previous generation M1 chipset. On single-core tests, the M2 scored 1,919 points, and on multi-core tests, it scored 8,928 points.
In other words, the M2 was 12 percent faster than the M1 in single-core tests, as it obtained just 1707 points, and up to 20 percent faster in multi-core tests, as the M1 got just 7,419 points.
