Sales of MacBook Pro with M2 processor started in Russia. How is it different from M1

Parallel import of Apple technology continues. For example, recently in Russia new MacBook Pro with M2 processor.

This is an evolutionary continuation of a powerful computer in the line of Apple’s own ARM processors. He can do more than Air and is not as expensive as 14- and 16-inch Pro on M1 Pro and M1 Max chips.

Now let’s look at all the differences between Pro on M2 and the model with M1, as well as other lines of Apple laptops.

Performance, or the main reason why the Pro M2 is better than the Pro M1

AT new MacBook Pro 2022 install the latest 8 core processor Apple M2. It has a 10-core GPU, there is support up to 24 GB random access memory. The base version is installed 8 GB without the possibility of a further upgrade, you can choose the appropriate amount of memory when ordering a custom model.

Improved 16-core system Neural Enginewhich received the memory bandwidth 100 GB/s. The chip supports more than just hardware acceleration H.264, HEVCbut also ProRes, ProRes RAW.

In the old MacBook Pro 2020 installed 8-core chip Apple M1 with 8 GPU cores. Processor supported up to 16 GB combined memory, and in the database is installed 8 GB.

System Neural Engine although it has 16 dedicated cores, it did not receive high memory bandwidth. The processor supports hardware acceleration only for H.264 and HEVC.

Who has the best stuffing? Of course, the novelty wins. The advantage is achieved not only due to a more powerful processor Apple M2, but also due to other features of the model. This is an improved system. Neural Engineand hardware support ProRes, ProRes RAWand the ability to install up to 24 GB random access memory.

The developers claim that the performance of new items increased by 39%.

The new MacBook Pro with M2 has three times better sound

New MacBook Pro 2022 received three notable innovations at once to improve the reproduced sound.

Firstlythere is support for spatial audio when playing music or video from Dolby Atmos on the built-in speakers.

Secondlysupported spatial audio with head tracking when using compatible AirPods.

ThirdlyThe computer’s 3.5mm jack supports high-impedance headphones.

Old MacBook Pro 2020 with M1 also outputs great sound, but without the support of the above features. There are stereo speakers with a wide dynamic range. It also has playback support. Dolby Atmos – but without spatial audio.

Other differences between speakers, microphones, and audio capabilities of models No.

Who has the best sound? the novelty wins in terms of the quality of the reproduced sound through external speakers. This will be noticeable in songs with Dolby Atmos support from Apple Music, as well as when watching movies with Dolby Atmos (for example, from the Apple TV + service).

And support for high-impedance headphones will allow you to connect professional “monitors” for audio mastering or simply use advanced “audiophile” headphones at full capacity.

How else is the MacBook Pro with M2 different from other models

The new laptop comes with a slightly more powerful power adapter. This is a block with one 67W USB-C port. The 2020 model was equipped with a similar adapter USB-C 61W.

There are no other differences in dimensions, matrix quality or other parameters between laptops. The main reason for the release of the update is the transition to more powerful second-generation processors. The M2 chip guarantees several more years of productive work without the need to upgrade the laptop.

Second generation 5nm processor Apple M2 It has 20 billion transistorsWhat’s on 25% morethan in the M1 chip. Combined memory speed reaches 100 Gbpswhich is double that of the previous generation.

Due to these differences in multi-core mode, the chip Apple M2 turns out to be 18% more productive. The graph shows the increase in 25% with comparable power consumption and additional 35% with more energy consumption. The neural engine has become 40% more powerful.

It is worth remembering that the base model now uses one memory module per 256 GB instead of two 128 GB. This slightly reduced the data transfer rate. Most people will be able to notice the difference only when copying a huge number of files, or according to the results of various “benchmarks” of the built-in drive. Otherwise, the new MacBook Pro on the M2, even with a single module, will perform tasks faster than the Pro on the M1 chip and with two.

Compared to the more expensive line of 14-inch MacBook Pros, the trinity has a couple of tricks up its sleeve. Cupertino continue to maintain the design familiar to many in recent years. Its main difference is the absence of a protrusion for the camera on the upper end of the display.

It is this element that scares many users in the new 14- and 16-inch models, but here this solution is not applied. You don’t have to mask the “bangs” in macOS or use a dark theme all the time.

Another nice bonus is the Touch Bar. This element greatly diversifies the interaction with the system and allows you to perform some actions faster. Using advanced settings or additional software, you can customize the panel for frequently used actions.

If we compare the MacBook Pro with the latest update of the MacBook Air, we should note the clear advantage of the professional line in the presence of active cooling.

This allows you to count on the performance of any heavy tasks.

As a result, the 2022 MacBook Pro 13″ is the most balanced model among all current Apple laptops. There are practically no compromises in the device. If in more affordable devices the absence of a cooler can be embarrassing, and in a more expensive one – a strange appearance with a “bangs”, then in the classic “firmware” everything is familiar.

Now you can buy a MacBook in Russia, as well as other Apple devices and accessories, at re:Store. Installment and trade in available.
