Geekbench scores allegedly for the upcoming “M2 Max” chip have leaked online, providing a possible look at the kind of performance we can expect from the upcoming Apple silicon processor.
The Geekbench results, first spotted on Twitter, are for a Mac configuration with the M2 Max chip, a 12-core CPU, and 96GB of memory. The Mac listed has an identifier “Mac14,6,” which could identify an upcoming MacBook Pro model or the next-generation Mac Studio.

The test results of the M2 Max chip scored 1,853 in single-core and 13,855 in multi-core, showing a relatively minor bump in performance over the M1 Max chip in the Mac Studio, which scored 1,755 in single-core and 12,333 in multi-core.
The M2 chip, announced in June 2022, is based on an enhanced version of TSMC’s 5nm process. What fabrication process the upcoming M2 Pro and M2 Max chips will have is not entirely clear.
The results show that the chip was tested on a Mac running macOS Ventura 13.2, which has yet to enter developer or public beta testing but is being worked on internally at Apple.
