Apple has just announced its M2 Pro and M2 Max processors, offering up to 38 GPU cores and 96GB of memory in two brand new devices, the M2 Mac mini, and the M2 MacBook Pro 14 and 16-inch.
"Apple today announced M2 Pro and M2 Max, two next-generation SoCs (systems on a chip) that take the breakthrough power-efficient performance of Apple silicon to new heights. M2 Pro scales up the architecture of M2 to deliver an up to 12-core CPU and up to 19-core GPU, together with up to 32GB of fast unified memory," the company stated.
Apple says M2 Pro is 40% faster than the M1 Pro running Adobe Photoshop, and 80% faster than the i9 16-inch MacBook Pro.
