Apple presents its M2 chip: what you need to know

Apple M2 2022

Apple took advantage of the keynote of this WWDC 2022 to present its new M2 chip which will notably equip its brand new MacBook Air. The least we can say is that it displays very impressive performances.

Remarkable power for the M2 chip

Boosted by the Arm architecture of the apple brand, the latter contains a processor integrating 20 billion transistors. Taken in isolation, this information does not tell us much, but know that it is 25% more than on the M1.

This allows Apple to offer 24 GB of unified RAM, and 50% more bandwidth compared to its predecessor. In detail, the Tech giant therefore promises us 18% higher performance, while the M2 should be 1.9 times faster.

The Apple brand also reports that its M2 chip has a next-generation neural engine and that its multimedia engine can support 8K videos. According The Vergeso it will be able to stream multiple 4K and 8K video streams simultaneously.

As always in such cases, we are currently forced to take the Cupertino company at its word. But the tests and the first benchmarks will make it possible to judge these assertions on the spot.

This conference also allowed Apple to unveil new features on its operating systems, but also a brand new deferred payment service that should greatly appeal to its customers: Apple Pay Later.
