At WWDC 2022 earlier this month, Apple announced the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with the M2 chip, and since the M2 MacBook Pro went on sale, a number of media outlets have been testing the M2 chip’s performance and real-world tasks. In the latest comparison, the performance of many of the chips in the iPhone, iPad, and MacBook are shown in comparison.
A chart by Macworld shares Geelbench 5 results for all the latest processors for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac. The publication mentions that different clock speeds for temperature control may result in different performances.
Multi-core” on the left represents CPU performance, while “Compute” on the right represents GPU performance, the higher the score, the better.
The A15 Bionic is better than the A14 Bionic in the previous iPad Air, but the performance gap between the two is small, which may be one of the reasons Apple chose the M1 when it upgraded the iPad Air in 2022. The A15 Bionic in this tablet has to be downclocked to maintain proper operating temperatures, so it’s not as fast as the A15 Bionic in the iPhone 13 Pro.
The M1 Pro and M1 Max chips are the faster chips in the MacBook Pro lineup, and Apple will release a more powerful variant of the M2 chip in the coming months that will further boost CPU and GPU performance.
