Apple’s M2 processor will power the new 13-inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. It appears in many Geekbench 5 CPU & GPU tests. This M2 achieves a maximum score of 1910 in single-core tests and 8928 points in multi-core tests. These results reveal nice increases in performance against its elder (+11% and +18%).

However, the most significant progress is in the GPU part with a score under the Metal exercise of Geekbench 5 of 30,627 points, an impressive +42% against the M1. This is partly explained by a better equipped GPU (10 cores against 8 cores). These first results are adapted to Apple’s announcements promising a gain of 18% on the CPU side and +35% on the GPU side.
