The Geekbench 5 test agrees with Apple’s claims that the M2 chip is up to 18% faster than the M1.
The Metal benchmark showed the M2 chip scoring 20627, which is a nice leap over the M1’s 21001 score. The M2 chip offers up to a 10-core GPU, compared to the 8-core maximum of the M1.
The M2 chip is used in the upcoming new 2022 MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro.
