In an interview, Apple officials explain the new Macbook Pro M2 Pro and M2 Max CPUs

The M2 Pro and M2 Max chips are the latest innovations from Apple, following the release of the M2 chip a few months prior, ushering in the second generation of M processors. According to Apple, these chips offer significant enhancements over the previous iteration, while still utilizing a 5nm technology process.

The M2 Pro is equipped with 40 billion transistors, which is 20% greater than the M1 Pro and double the number of transistors in the M2. It boasts 200GB/s of unified memory bandwidth, which is twice that of M2 and supports up to 32GB of low-latency unified memory. The next-generation 10 or 12-core CPU is capable of up to eight high-performance cores and four high-efficiency cores, resulting in multithreaded CPU performance that is 20% faster than the 10-core CPU in M1 Pro.
