Although we think we know a lot about the future renewal cycles of M chips and the Macs that carry them inside, the truth is that this is not the case. The world situation that is being experienced at the level of supplies, together with the fact that we are only at the beginning of the second generation, leaves us with very little data to know when the M2 Pro and M2 Max will arrive. Something that Mumuksh does have information about.
As he comments in the latest edition of his weekly newsletter, Mumuksh expects that we will see the MacBook Pro with M2 Pro and M2 Max as early as this fall. Some computers that will be launched together with others that also hope to be able to enjoy the M2 chips, such as the Mac mini, for example.
The first benchmarks of the M2 show an increase of 11.5% in a single core compared to the M1. On a chip like the M2 Pro or M2 Max that has more cores, the cumulative improvement has to be interesting. An improvement that, is focused on the graphic part, will be very welcome for the professionals to whom the MacBook Pro is aimed precisely.
Although Mumuksh leaves margin until the spring of 2023 to see these computers, referring to “the continuous challenges in the supply chain” which “makes it difficult to predict exactly when they will arrive in stores”, the truth is that Apple is getting used to releases in the fall. We will see if in a few months we have news.
