Leaked benchmarks confirm that the M2 chip is up to 20% faster than the M1

According to leaked M2 benchmarks of the upcoming 13-inch MacBook Pro spotted on Geekbench today, Apple’s new M2 chip is up to 20 percent faster than the M1 chip when it comes to multi-core performance.

The “M2,” which runs at 3.49GHz, compared to 3.2GHz on the “M1,” achieved a single-core score of 1919, which is about 12 percent faster than the 1707 single-core score 13-inch MacBook Pro “M1”. The “M2” achieved a multi-core score of 8928, about 20 percent higher than the 7419 score of the “M1” model.

Apple has said the “M2” chip is up to 18 percent faster than the “M1,” so the Geekbench 5 test matches Apple’s claims exactly.

On the Metal benchmark, the “M2” chip scored 30627 points, a notable improvement over the 21001 points of the “M1”. The “M2” chip offers a GPU with up to 10 cores, compared to the 8-core maximum of the “M1”.

The “M2” chip is available in the new MacBook Air 2022 and the 13-inch MacBook Pro. Apple hasn’t provided any information on when the MacBook Air will launch, but the new MacBook Pro will be available for pre-order starting Friday, June 17.
