Geekbench scores for the upcoming M2 Max chip have surfaced online, offering a closer look at the performance levels and specific details of the forthcoming Apple Silicon processor.

The Geekbench results are for a Mac configuration with the M2 Max chip, a 12-coreCPU, and 96GB of memory. It is possible that the upcoming MacBook Pros or the next- generation Mac Studio are listed. The current 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros have a maximum of 64 gigabytes of memory, while the Mac Studio can have up to 128 gigabytes of memory.

The M2 Max chip scored in single-core and multi-core. The M1 Max chip in the Mac studio scored 1,755 in single-core and 12,333 in multi-core The performance increase for the upcoming chip will be relatively small if the M2 Max results are correct.

The M2 chip is based on a TSMC process. The M2 Pro and M2 Max chips will have different fabrication processes. While they could feature the same enhanced 5nm process as the standard M2 chip, there are also rumors that it could leapfrog to 3nanometers and offer significant performance and energy efficiency gains.

The chip was tested on a Mac and is being worked on at Apple. The first Macs expected to feature the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips are rumored to be updated 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros. The updated MacBook Pros were rumored to launch in October to November, but are now expected to launch in early23.

The updated MacBook Pros, an updated iMac, and the long-rumored Apple Silicon Mac Pro are some of the Macs that Apple is working on in the years to come. Check out our guide for a complete rundown of all the new Macs we expect next year.
