It’s been a long time coming, but Apple finally revealed the brand new M2 chip, an even more powerful chip that’s already available in the brand new MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro.
Say Hello to the M2
During the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) presentation, Apple revealed a brand new processor for Mac: the M2 chip.
Practically since the birth of the M1 chip, there have been rumors about the M2 processor, but now it’s finally a reality, and it’s coming sooner than you might think.
So what’s new about the M2 chip? Well, for starters, the M2 chip is bigger than the M1 chip. This change isn’t just about the looks – the M2 chip features a 5nm process and 20 billion transistors. The M2 chip is more powerful and efficient than ever.
With the M2 chip, you can do up to 15.8 trillion operations per second with a 16-core Neural Engine — which is a whopping 40% faster now. This means your M2 Mac can support an external 6K monitor without hassle.
When it comes to bandwidth, the M2 chip has 50% more than the current M1 chip. The new processor features 100GB/s of memory bandwidth which is twice as much as the first Apple Silicon chip.

So what does it all mean? It means your Mac will be faster, more energy-efficient, and more powerful than anything you’ve seen before.
When Will the M2 Chip Launch?
Apple’s not saying goodbye to the M1 chip, and it’s going to take a while before all of its Mac computers have the new processor. As of right now, the only computers that will feature the M2 chip will be the new 2022 MacBook Air and the M2 MacBook Pro.
The MacBook Air will get a brand new design and many upgrades, while the 13-inch MacBook Pro will remain the same but add the updated chip.
You can expect these two MacBooks and the M2 chip to be available next month.
