The newly announced Geekbench benchmark results for the new Mac mini M2 and M2 Pro revealed a significant increase in performance compared to the previous generation Mac mini and devices powered by the M1 Pro and M1 Max processor, and here are the results.
The results reveal that the Mac mini with M2 Pro processor achieved a score of 1952 for single-core processing, and achieved a score of 15013 for multi-core processing with 16GB of unified memory.
For comparison, the previous Mac mini with the M1 processor achieved a score of 1715 for single-core processing, which is 237 less than the score for the new Mac mini, and achieved a score of 7442 for multi-core processing, which is 7571 less than the new Mac mini.
Thus, the results of Geekbench are the first to be released in relation to measuring the performance of the new M2 Pro processor in the Mac mini devices, and this processor is the same in the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro devices, so it is likely that the performance will be similar in these devices, and it may not differ. The performance of the processor is very high.
The M1 Pro processor in the previous generation of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro achieved a single-core score of 1734, and a multi-core score of 10076, compared to the M2 Pro processor, which achieved a single-core score of 1952, an increase of 218 degrees, and achieved a multi-core score of 15013, an increase of 4997 degrees. XNUMX degrees.
The M2 Pro processor also outperforms the M1 Max, which achieves a single-core score of 1727 and a multi-core score of 12643.
Thus, Geekbench results indicate similar performance for Mac mini devices with an M2 processor and MacBook Air devices with an M2 processor, which was announced in June 2022.
Users can configure their Mac mini with an M2 processor and up to 24GB of unified memory, compared to 16GB for previous M1 models. The Mac mini can be configured with the M2 Pro processor, with 32GB of unified memory.
The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros equipped with the M2 Max processor can have up to 96GB of RAM.
The updated Mac mini and 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro are available for pre-order on Apple's website and will begin available to customers on Tuesday, January 24.
