Apple’s Newest SoC Expands on the Authentic
Apple has introduced their M2 chip at WWDC 22, and this time it’s a brand new design – not a fusion of two current chip designs as we noticed with the M1 Extremely again in March, Apple’s fusion of two M1 Max SoCs. One factor that hasn’t modified is the expertise node: M2 stays a 5nm product, although Apple is fast to level out that it makes use of “second-generation” 5nm tech.
“Constructed utilizing second-generation 5-nanometer expertise, M2 takes the industry-leading efficiency per watt of M1 even additional with an 18 p.c quicker CPU, a 35 p.c extra highly effective GPU, and a 40 p.c quicker Neural Engine.1 It additionally delivers 50 p.c extra reminiscence bandwidth in comparison with M1, and as much as 24GB of quick unified reminiscence. M2 brings all of this — plus new customized applied sciences and better effectivity — to the fully redesigned MacBook Air and up to date 13-inch MacBook Professional.”
The M2 SoC might not be manufactured with a smaller course of node, however it boasts 25% extra transistors than the unique M1, now as much as 20 billion, and provides extra (and quicker) reminiscence – now as much as 24 GB unified reminiscence with as much as 100 GB/s of bandwidth.
