Western journalists and bloggers have released the first reviews of the MacBook Pro 14 and 16 with M2 Pro and M2 Max processors.

Everyone notes record-breaking performance, but not particularly noticeable factors that change the color of the MacBook Pro to a new one.

Number of Cores

The 2023 MacBook Pro 16 is the same as the 2021 MacBook Pro 16, except there’s a new chip almost inside. And let’s get one thing straight: no, there is no good reason to buy a 2023 model if you already have a 2021 MacBook Pro.

They sent me a $4299 M2 Max version with a 12-core processor, 38-core graphics, 64 GB of RAM and a 2 TB SSD.

The M2 Max and M2 Pro go side by side in synthetic benchmarks when comparing CPU performance. Sometimes the M1 Max pulls ahead.

When detecting the M2 Pro and M2 Max graphics chip, the difference is huge. The M2 Max posted the fastest time I’ve ever seen on a laptop in our standard Premiere Pro 4K video export test. The Mac mini with the M2 Pro did the same test for a minute.

The most recent improvement is probably for the average Mac owner. Game discussion. The M2 Max achieved 103 FPS at the highest level of Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 1920 x 1200, a 66% improvement over the M2 Pro. This is a very noticeable difference, for the sake of which gamers overpay for screens with a high frequency of frequencies.

When compared to graphics cards, the closest competitor to the MacBook Pro with M2 Max is the Nvidia RTX 3070. The Mac Mini with M2 Pro, showing 62 FPS in Tomb Raider, in theory explores the RTX 3050.

M2 Max is similar to M1 Max. The main differences, the extended updated architecture, are in the cores. The M2 Max processor can have a maximum of 12 cores, while the M1 Max is limited to 10 cores. But it is worth noting that two additional cores are energy efficient, not productive. The top graphics of the M2 Max include 38 cores, while the M1 Max has 32.

MacBook Pro 16 with M2 Max is hotter and louder than the model with M1 Max. While testing the M2 Max at PugetBench, the fans were so loud that people from all over the office came to see what was going on. The process of the laptop was very hot, which was just uncomfortable to type on.

For me, the most important difference between M1 Max and M2 Max is determined in battery life. Typically, my MacBook Pro 16 with M1 Max can run an average of 10 hours, while a new laptop with M2 Max lasts 14 hours under the same load. Everyone works on laptops differently, but I find that most people will notice this improvement.

Apple gave its users everything they wanted.

The 2023 MacBook Pro 14 is no different from the 2021 version. It still has a gorgeous 14.2-inch 120Hz screen with a 1080p webcam cutout. And it has the ports you really need. All changes are under the hood.

But I confess in everyday collection I didn’t notice any significant performance gains compared to the value estimate. This is not a negative for the new MacBook Pro, but rather a testament to how well Apple did last time.

It took 31 seconds to convert a one-minute 4K video to Full HD on a MacBook Pro with M2 Max using Handbrake. MacBook Pro with M1 Max supports this feature for 10 seconds.

The biggest difference between laptops. The previous MacBook Pro with M1 Max lasted 12 hours and 36 minutes during testing, while the new model with M2 Max lasted 15 hours and 10 minutes. This is a good leap forward. Apple says the new MacBook Pro can last up to 22 hours on a single charge, but note that this figure only applies to the 16-inch model.

The best laptop in the world.

One thing I can say for sure: The 14-inch MacBook Pro does it allWhether you choose the M2 Pro or M2 Max chip.

The MacBook Pro with the M2 Pro is most commonly seen on Windows, at least until we organize a protest against 13th Gen Intel Core laptops. The M2 Max is even faster, especially when it comes to heavy workloads of video editing in Premiere Pro.

If you want a large and portable laptop and are willing to spend $1999, I can recommend the MacBook Pro with M2 Pro. It’s certainly a lot faster than the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M2, but that model costs $1,299 and has 4 hours less battery life. The 16-inch MacBook Pro is available for $2,499 if you really want a bigger screen and a case that’s a little better at dissipating heat.

I wouldn’t say the 2023 14-inch MacBook Pro is fast enough compared to the M1 Pro. But if you’re looking to swap out the 2021 MacBook Pro for something else, then the 2023 model is the pinnacle of performance.
