How strong is apple's M2 chip?

The 2022 Apple WWDC, which is highly anticipated and focused on by netizens, has delivered many new products. Although there are no VR glasses and no Apple car, apple has made a series of new products from software to hardware and ecology

One of the M2 chips is more attention to pull full, after all, this is apple's second generation of M series PC chips, worth looking forward to.

After Apple introduced the first generation of M1 chips, it broke the situation that ARM chips could not compete with X86 chips in the PC field, and let M1 chips beat Intel chips.

Later, Apple introduced three chips, M1 Pro, M1 Max and M1 Ultra, almost replacing all of its Mac chips with M1 series, thus replacing Intel chips.

Now that the M2 chip has been released, it is expected to follow the path of M1, with M2 Pro, M2 Max, M2 Ultra, etc., and then it will be upgraded in its Own Mac series.

So how strong is M2 this time? This time it is ARM architecture, using second-generation 5nm technology, but with 20 billion transistors, 1.25 times more than M2.

Compared to the M1, Apple says M2's CPU is 18% faster, its GPU 35% faster, its neural network engine 40% better, and its memory bandwidth 50% better.

Now it's time to beat its rivals. Apple says it's 90 percent better at the same power consumption (15W) as its 10-core x86 notebook processor, while the M2 consumes a quarter of the same power. Compared to a 12-core laptop processor, 25% power consumption translates into 87% performance.

This friend business, naturally refers to the CPU factory Intel, but Intel provoked Apple? You want to take it out and whip it?

As for the GPU, Apple says it is 1.4 times more powerful than the M1 chip for video and graphics tasks. New generation media processing engine supporting 8K H.264 and HEVC video.

Compared to 10 core notebook processors, the same power consumption (15W) performance can reach 2.3 times, only 35% power consumption can match the highest performance, is also a friend of the maniac.

In fact, Apple's Mac line has seen a surge in sales since the LAUNCH of the M1 chip, with Mac revenue reaching $28 billion in fiscal 2020 and $35 billion in 2021.

What's more, the M1 chip costs only about $50, while an i5 chip with Intel's performance could cost as much as $200, meaning apple sells more Macs, but costs fall, and profits soar.

It can be seen that It is a correct and wise decision for Apple to replace the X86 chip with the self-developed ARM chip. However, only an enterprise with the strength and self-control of the ecosystem like Apple can achieve this, and other enterprises really cannot.
