During its recent WWDC developer conference, Apple mentioned that the next-gen Apple M2 processor’s CPU cluster would be “18%” faster than the current M1. numbers found in the Geekbench database are the first 3approx Party data points confirming Apple’s claim.
This is not surprising since chip manufacturers usually provide reliable and accurate performance estimates for their upcoming chips. But for prudent prospective buyers, it’s always a relief to see multiple confirmations that their next piece of hardware would perform as expected. Aside from the CPU, Apple also says the M2 GPU gets a 35% boost.
CPU benchmarks for Apple’s M2 chip have been leaked!
3.49 GHz CPU clock vs. 3.2 GHz of the M1
Single core performance increase over M1: 11.56%
Multi-core performance increase over M1: 19.45%

The industry was pleasantly surprised by the launch of the M1 platform, which proved to be impressive in absolute performance and power efficiency. It looks like Apple’s architecture is scalable and has more legs for the foreseeable future.
The M2 chip is at the heart of the newly announced M2 MacBook Pro and M2 MacBook Air. The latter has a fanless design, which is a testament to the low heat output of Apple’s processor. However, the MacBook Pro has a fan and can better maintain the high performance.
