Days after Apple announced its new Macs, the first benchmark showing the performance of the new chips was unveiled. Apparently, the M2 Pro is a processor that delivers more CPU performance than the M1 Max.

  • Apple launches second-generation HomePod with powerful sound and lower price

As found in the database of Geekbench, one of the main benchmark platforms, the ability of the Mac Mini in its variant with the M2 Pro processor shows a significant increase in performance when compared to other processors, such as the M1 of the previous Mac Mini, surpassing even the M1 Pro and M1 Max seen in the 2021 MacBook Pro.

The M2 Pro present in the new Mac Mini managed to register 1,952 points in the test with only one core and 15,013 points when the platform’s full capacity was required, combined with 16 GB of RAM. Also found on the new MacBook Pro, it is unlikely that the results obtained on notebooks will be very different.

Just by way of comparison, the Mac Mini with M1 scored 1,715 points in single-core and 7,442 points in multi-core, while the MacBook Pro with M1 Pro, its predecessor, scored 1,734 points with just one core and 10,076 points with multiple cores. cores. What really impresses is when we look at the numbers of the M1 Max, with its 1,727 points in single-core and 12,643 points in multi-core.

Of course, it is important to remember that the true highlight of the M1 Max is the GPU, which was not tested in this case, but at least in terms of the CPU, it is clear that the new generation brings an interesting upgrade.

The updated Mac Mini and MacBook Pro are currently up for pre-order in the United States, with deliveries expected to take place on January 24th. Both are already listed on Apple’s website for Brazil, with the Mac Mini starting at R$7,499 and the MacBook being listed from R$23,999, but there is still no exact date for the start of sales here.
