Apple has officially unveiled new 2023 Macbook Pro 14 and 16 models. The low-end laptops in this series are powered by Apple M2 Pro chip while high-end models have Apple M2 Max chip. The earlier launched Macbook Pro 13″ 2022 model has the basic Apple M2 chip. No matter which Apple chip you choose, all these are very fast and offers fantastic performance.
Apple M2 Pro chip has up to 12-core CPU and 19-core GPU. The most powerful chip in the 2023 lineup – the Apple M2 Max chip – has up to a 12-core CPU and is configurable up to a 38‑core GPU.
M2 Max supports 400GB/s memory bandwidth which is double the bandwidth the M2 Pro supports. The max unified memory the M2 Pro support is 32GB while the M2 Max supports up to 96GB unified memory.
These new 2023 chips support features like Hardware-accelerated H.264, HEVC, ProRes and ProRes RAW, Video decode engine, Video encode engine, ProRes encode and decode engine etc. All models have a 16-core Neural Engine.
From the manufacturer
M2 Pro takes pro performance to the next level. With over 40 billion transistors — 20% more than M1 Pro and twice that of M2 — the M2 Pro chip brings even more speed and efficiency to everything you do. And with double the memory bandwidth of M2, running multiple pro apps is incredibly fluid.
M2 Max goes even further. With up to 96GB of unified memory, M2 Max shatters the limits of graphics memory in a laptop. It’s packed with a staggering 67 billion transistors — 10 billion more than M1 Max and over three times more than M2. And it delivers twice the memory bandwidth of M2 Pro and four times that of M2.
