The new M2 chip is built on a second-generation 5nm process with 20 billion transistors, 25% more than the M1. This improves features on the new chipset including 100GB/s of unified memory bandwidth and up to 24GB of RAM.
It is said to offer 18% faster CPU performance than the M1. This is thanks to four faster performance cores with a larger cache and four enhanced efficiency cores.
The next-generation GPU can go up to 10 cores, two more than the M1. The 10-core GPU delivers up to 25% better performance than the M1 and up to 35% better performance at max power.
Meanwhile, the Neural Engine is capable of processing up to 15.8 trillion operations per second. This is 40% more than its predecessor.
