Apple releases the M2 Pro and M2 Max

JANUARY 18, 2023

Apple's new Mac Mini and MacBook Pro models have been upgraded. The Mac Mini now ships with the M2 and M2 Pro chips, while 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros can be configured with the M2 Pro and M2 Max. As can be expected, these new silicon chips are faster and more efficient than their M1 predecessors.

Yet I've been using an M1 Max MacBook Pro and the performance is astonishing, and even more now that most development tools and consumer software is compatible with Apple Silicon. Few programs require Rosetta 2 to run and can run natively.

The fact that M2 Pro now ships on Mac Minis makes them a great choice for high-end workflows. It's to be expected that the Mac Studio would also be upgraded with a version of the M2 Ultra whenever that is released.
