The new MacBook Pro with M2 Pro and M2 Max may arrive in the fall of 2022, according to a reliable Apple analyst. But is that true?
MacBook Pro 2021Last year Apple introduced the MacBook Pro 2021. This model has been completely renewed, with a slightly thicker design to better cool the laptop, more connections such as MagSafe and HDMI, and for the first time a high-contrast mini LED screen.
Inside, you’ll find the M1 Pro and M1 Max , two Apple-designed processors that are much faster than the previous Intel chips. The M1 Pro chip is even 44% faster than the M2, which you will find in the ‘new’ 13-inch MacBook Pro, among other things.
MacBook Pro with M2 Pro and M2 Max
With the arrival of the normal M2, the faster M2 Pro and M2 Max also seem to be on the way. According to reliable Apple analyst Mark Gurman, we may see those new chips in a new MacBook Pro as early as the fall of this year.
We are somewhat skeptical about this. The MacBook Pro 2021 has only been available since October last year, and stock is still so limited that with many configurations you have to wait until August before you have them at home. We therefore assume a release in 2023.
M2 Pro and M2 Max
The M2 Pro and M2 Max get the same improvements as the regular M2 chip , but with more cores and faster memory. That means that the cpu becomes about 18% faster, and the gpu 35% faster. You will therefore especially notice the extra performance in video editing, 3D programs and games.
There is also a good chance that there will be more GPU cores – so more computing cores in the video chip. There are now 16 on the M1 Pro and 32 on the M1 Max, and will likely be 20 on the M2 Pro and 40 on the M2 Max.
