Mac mini geekbench score with M2 and M2 Pro chips outperforms M1 Max
According to Geekbench results, the recently unveiled Mac mini with M2 and M2 Pro CPUs performs significantly better than the previous-generation Mac mini and M1 Pro and M1 Max devices.
According to the results, a setup with 16GB of unified memory resulted in a single-core score of 1,952 and a multi-core score of 15,013.
For contrast, the M1 Mac mini scored 1,715 for single-core performance and 7,442 for multi-core performance. The Geekbench scores are the first ones for the new M2 Pro that we have seen.
These findings also show that the M2 Pro surpasses the M1 Max, which scores 1,727 single-core and 12,643 multi-core.
Compared to the M2 Pro, which had a single-core score of 1,952 and a multi-core score of 15,013, the M1 Pro in the pre-gen 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro scored 1,734 and 10,076.
The M2 Mac mini's Geekbench scores have also surfaced, showing comparable performance to the M2 MacBook Air unveiled in June 2022.
As opposed to 16GB with the M1 model, users can customise the Mac mini with M2 with up to 24GB of unified memory.
Models of the Mac mini can be configured with 32GB of unified memory using the M2 Pro. The high-end M2 Max model that powers the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros supports up to 96GB of RAM.
On Tuesday, January 24, consumers will start receiving both the new Mac mini and the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro, which are both now available for pre-order on Apple's website.
