Apple Laptop with New Processor M2
Apple has introduced two new MacBooks, along with a new processor M2. All devices powered by Apple’s M1 chip have received rave reviews. Apple has introduced the next generation computer chipset M2 to enhance the success of the M1. With the announcement of the new M2, Apple has launched the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro powered by this chip. Let’s learn more about the new laptop MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and M2 processor.
Not only the chipset, but also the design of the MacBook Air has changed radically. For the first time since 2016, the best-selling laptop model has got a touch of a new design. The MacBook Air has the same design as the iMac and MacBook Pro models.
Compared to previous models, the new MacBook Air has a smoother bezel around the display. Weighing in at just 1.225kg, the new MacBook has a 13-inch notched display that supports 1 billion colors. The MacBook Air is only 11.3 meters or 0.5 inches thick which is quite important as a laptop.
MagSafe has been added to the new MacBook Air for easy charging. The front of the MacBook Air has a 1080p resolution selfie camera, which can be used for anything from video calls to facecam. The new MacBook Air model adds spatial audio features to the speaker system.
According to Apple, M2 works 20% faster in image editing than M1. The biggest difference in performance between M1 and M2 is video editing. Video editing performance on M2 is 40% higher than on M1. Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average MacBook Air battery. Dual-port USB-C charger arrives. The MacBook Air has fast charging that can charge up to 50% in 30 minutes.
Apple has launched the new premium-branded MacBook Pro along with the MacBook Air 7 The new M2 chip has also been used in MacBook Pro models. The battery of this new laptop can play 20 hours of continuous video. The new Apple MacBook Pro model will have 8-core CPU, 10-core GPU, up to 24 GB of memory and up to 2 terabytes of SSD storage.
Apple laptops are going to be a great performance laptop for MacBook Pro’s M2 chip. According to Apple, the Apple MacBook Pro is capable of delivering almost three times more performance than other non-Apple-Silicon laptops of the same price. Also, Pro Race video on the new MacBook Air can run almost three times as smoothly, mainly due to the M2 chipset.
Apple’s M2 chipset, based on second-generation 5 nanometer technology, supports up to 24 GB of LPDDR5 memory. Its new GPU is 35% faster than the M1. In terms of CPU performance, the M2 processor will be 16% faster than the M1. For the convenience of M2, it is possible to work with multiple 4K video levels at the same time for video editing.
The processor’s architecture has improved, resulting in a significant increase in its performance. The M2 processor has an 18-core neural engine that is 40% faster than the M1 and can perform 15.6 trillion operations per second. The M2 chip is slightly larger in size than the M1. However, the chip’s CPU core number and configuration remain the same.
Like the M1, the M2 processor has four high-performance cores and four power-efficient cores. Where the M1 was limited to an 8-core GPU, the M2 will have a 10-core GPU, which has significantly improved graphics-related app usage. Apple also said that the M2 chip supports 100 GB of memory bandwidth per second. Apple M2 has the advantage of using 6K external display.
