Apple announces new flagship M2 processor

Apple is introducing its new M2 chip today at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). After the M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max and M1 Ultra chips, Apple is now ready to move on to the more powerful M2 chip.

Like the M1 Ultra before it, the M2 uses Apple's Arm architecture, and is now built on a 5nm processor with 20 billion transistors – 25 percent more than the original M1. Apple is using new performance and efficiency cores on the M2 with 100Gbps memory bandwidth and 24GB of integrated memory – that's 50 percent more bandwidth than the M1.

Apple is promising 18 percent more performance with the M2 than with the original M1 chip, and the company claims the M2 will be 1.9x faster than "the latest 10-core PC laptop chip."

Evolving… We'll be adding more to this post, but you can follow our WWDC 2022 live blog to get the news even faster.
