The new Apple M2 chip offers more performance
At the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2022, Apple introduced the second generation of its chips "Apple Silicon".
Compared to the predecessor, the
M2-Chip offers four billion additional transistors that claim a slightly larger area.
If the technology fan only had the choice between 8 and 16 GB on the M1, 24 GB is added to the M2. There is not only more memory, the data transfer rate has also increased by 50%, namely to 100 GB/s, the interface is 128 bits.
In principle, nothing has changed in the 8-kernel arm CPU, but Apple has significantly revised the four high performance and the four high-efficiency nuclei. So far it is known that the four high-performance cores have 16 MB power. The Efficiency nuclei should bring more power, but how much is not yet known.
The M2 cores are supposed to use Apple A15 Bionic, but this has not yet been confirmed.
Overall, the new chip is said to be 18 percent faster.
