Benchmarks for Apple’s unannounced but almost certainly real M2 Max have appeared in Geekbench results(opens in new tab), which shows a 12-core processor running at 3.54GHz and backed by 96GB of RAM. The rumored chip, which would be used in forthcoming MacBook Pro and Mac Studio models, offers a slight increase in performance over the existing M1 Max if the Geekbench run is accurate.
The Geekbench 5 results are for a ‘Mac14,6’ computer running on unreleased macOS 13.2 software. It manages a single-core score of 1,853 and a multi-core score of 13,855. If accurate, this is a little disappointing, as an eight-core M2 MacBook Pro hits(opens in new tab) 1,899 in the same single-core benchmark.
