It is reported that the M2 processor, codenamed Staten, is based on the A15 Bionic. The CPU adopts a 4-large, 4-small, 8-core architecture, and the GPU is upgraded from the M1’s 7-8 cores to 10 cores, with more powerful performance.

 

In addition, it is reported that the M2 processor will not use TSMC’s 3nm process, but a 4nm process, which is more energy efficient than the current 5nm process of the M1 series, which will help improve the battery life of Mac computers.

At the recent spring conference, Apple did not release a new generation of self-developed processor M2, and the mac mini product line was not upgraded. This may have to wait until the WWDC conference in June. M2 will be an iterative upgrade product of M1. It is still an 8-core architecture, with little change, and the GPU is the focus of the upgrade, with a maximum of 10 cores.

 

According to 9to5Mac, the new Mac mini, MacBook Air, and 13-inch MacBook Pro will all be upgraded with M2 processors.

 

From an architectural point of view, Apple’s M1 is developed based on A14 Bionic, M2 is based on A15 Bionic, code-named Staten, and the CPU is still 4 large, 4 small and 8-core architecture. The focus of this upgrade is GPU, which will be changed from M1 The 7-8 cores are upgraded to 10 cores, and the productivity performance is more powerful.

 

Another point, it was previously reported that the M2 processor could not catch up with TSMC’s 3nm process and would be produced using the 4nm process, which is more energy efficient than the current 5nm process of the M1 series, which will help improve the battery life of Mac computers.

 

However, the M2 is just the entry-level model in this series. According to the rules of the Apple M1 series, there will be M2 Pro, M2 Max and M2 Ultra, and the number of CPU and GPU cores will continue to be piled up.
