The M2 Ultra is based on two M2 Max chips paired with an UltraFusion connection and can be paired with up to 192 GB of memory.
Apple released the new Mac Pro and Mac Studio computers in connection with the WWDC event. With the new releases, the company’s entire offering now relies on self-designed Arm processors. According to Apple, the M2 Ultra, which is built from as many as 134 billion transistors, is the world’s most powerful processor designed for a PC to date.
The new Mac Pro and the more powerful version of Mac Studio rely on the new M2 Ultra processor. Like the M1 Ultra, the processor using the UltraFusion connection architecture combines two M2 Max chips and up to 192 GB of memory in one package, with the same 800 GB/s memory bandwidth as in the last generation.
The M2 Ultra contains a total of 24 processor cores, which are divided into 16 powerful Avalanche cores and 8 energy-efficient Blizzard cores. Compared to the M1 Ultra, there is a total difference of four energy-efficient cores. On the GPU side, up to 76 cores are now used, which is 12 more than in the M1 Ultra. According to Apple’s numbers, the M2 Ultra increases processor power by 20% and GPU power by 30% at best compared to its predecessor, but in individual tests the differences are many times greater.
The processor’s Neural Engine artificial intelligence accelerator has 32 cores like the M1 Ultra, but offers up to 40% more computing power, according to the company. Unfortunately, it has not been told where the increase in computing power has come from. On the media side, Apple praises that the M2 Ultra has even doubled the ProRes performance, and display support has been increased to up to six Pro Display XDR displays at a time.
