Apple's M2 (powerful) processor: Features

Apple introduces new MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS Ventura and watchOS 9 etc. from WWDC2022. One of the highlight from the event is all about the M2 processor compare to up to date faster one M1 chipset. M2 Supercharged.

The M2 chip starts the next generation of Apple silicon, with even more of the speed and power efficiency of M1. So you can get more done faster with a more powerful 8-core CPU. Create captivating images and animations with up to a 10-core GPU.

Work with more streams of 4K and 8K ProRes video with the high-performance media engine. And keep working — or playing — all day and into the night with up to 18 hours of battery life.

Special about Apple's M2 processor.

Other than the above specialty, the chipset comes with
1.4xfaster than M1 model
Up to15xfaster than Intel-based model
Up to18 hours battery life.

The M2 chip can really zip.

Apple says as below;

New chip. Next chapter.

M2 begins the next chapter for Apple silicon, which has transformed the Mac line-up with its blazing performance and power efficiency. The breakthrough system on a chip (SoC) architecture combines the CPU, GPU, memory and more on a single chip so everything runs much faster — while requiring much less power.

M2 is built using an enhanced second-generation 5-nanometer technology. It features over 20 billion transistors — 25% more than M1. And its 16-core Neural Engine is capable of executing up to 15.8 trillion operations per second to accelerate machine learning tasks. 

Up to 24GB of high-performance unified memory gives the CPU and GPU shared access to a larger memory pool. And the 100GB/s memory bandwidth — 50% more than M1 — makes multitasking and running multiple apps super-fluid.
