The M2 chip begins the next generation of Apple silicon, with even more of the speed and power efficiency introduced by M1. So you can rip through workflows with a more powerful 8-core CPU. Create stunning graphics with a lightning‑fast 10‑core GPU. Work with more streams of 4K and 8K ProRes video with the high-performance media engine. And do it all at once with up to 24GB of faster unified memory.
M2 brings more power. To go.

Active cooling sustains blazing‑fast performance. Thanks to its advanced thermal system and the efficiency of Apple silicon, MacBook Pro can sustain pro levels of performance, so you can run CPU‑ and GPU‑intensive tasks for hours on end.
And more of it.
M2 has 100GB per second of memory bandwidth — 50 percent more than M1. And it supports 24GB of unified memory for superfluid multitasking and working with massive files.

Performs well with others.
macOS and M2 work together to bring more speed and responsiveness to all your go‑to apps — including Microsoft 365 and your favorite iOS apps. Over 10,000 apps and plug‑ins are already optimized for Apple silicon. And Rosetta 2 seamlessly translates apps designed for Intel processors for use on your MacBook Pro.

A portable editing bay.
The high-performance media engine on M2 supports ProRes encode and decode. So you can play and edit up to 11 streams of 4K ProRes video and up to 2 streams of 8K ProRes video — including 4K ProRes video shot on iPhone 13 Pro.And convert projects to ProRes up to 3x faster than before.
Final Cut Pro
The M2 chip and macOS give MacBook Pro security and privacy features beyond anything in its class. With built‑in protections against malware and viruses, the freedom to choose what you share and how you share it, and silicon‑level features like Touch ID and Apple Pay, it’s built to safeguard your privacy and data at every stage.
Bring your photos, movies, music, and documents with you — and open them in a flash.
