Video Comparison: MacBook Pro M2 Vs. MacBook Pro M1 Listen to this article

Apple released an updated version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro last week, and it’s the first Mac equipped with the updated M2 chip. Since it’s using a completely new chip, we thought we’d take the MacBook Pro M2 and compare it with the previous generation MacBook Pro M1 to see what’s new.

For video comparison, we used the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro m2 with 8GB of unified memory and 256GB of SSD, and compared it with the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro m1 with 8GB of unified memory.GB and 256GB SSD, so it’s a direct comparison between the new machine and its predecessor.

Design-wise, there is no difference as Apple has kept the chassis and internals the same, with upgrades limited to internal chips. The bezels are the same, the MacBook Pro still has a Touch Bar and continues to use USB-C without a MagSafe port.

The 2M2 chip in the MacBook Pro includes an 8-core CPU, 10-core GPU, and support for up to 24GB of integrated memory, while the m1 includes an 8-core CPU, 8-core GPU, and up to 16GB of memory. Integrated memory. Commemoration. As a side note, even though the base machine comes with 8GB, it’s almost always a good idea to go up to at least 16GB to improve performance.

When it comes to CPU performance, the M2 beats the M1. While there’s still an 8-core CPU, the single-core Geekbench clock speed is 12 percent faster than the 1M1, while multi-core scores can be up to 20 percent higher. In our own tests, we saw more mixed results, with an eight percent improvement in single-core performance and a 12 percent improvement in multi-core performance.

In terms of GPU performance, the M2 is much faster than the M1 as it has two additional cores. The Geekbench Metal score was 35 percent better with the M2h, and the 3DMARK frame rate benchmark saw the M2 gain 40 fps, while the M1 gained 29 fps.

In actual use, the video export time for the original timeline was almost the same, with improvements over ‌M2‌ by adding more effects and plugins.

There has been some controversy surrounding the 256GB SSD in the MacBook Pro, which saw slow speeds in the Blackmagic drive speed test. Apple used a 256GB NAND flash storage chip for the MacBook Pro 2M2, while the 1M1 model was likely to have two 128GB NAND chips. Multiple NAND chips enable faster speeds in parallel, meaning the 256GB SSD in the MacBook Pro M1h is outperforming the 256GB SSD in the MacBook Pro M2. Please note that this is an issue limited to the 256GB model as the 512GB model does not have the same issue.

On machines with only 8GB of memory, the SSD wakes up to virtual memory when needed, and a slower SSD can mean slower overall performance speeds, which should be taken into account. We did some real-world tests for transferring large files and saw faster speeds on the 2M2, but other performance tests from YouTube channels like Max Tech had different results and saw performance hits on the M2 compared to the M1.

To avoid potentially disappointing performance, if you’re going to get a MacBook Pro 2M2, it’s probably best to upgrade the SSD to 512GB, and it’s also a good idea to get more memory since you can’t upgrade later. Since the base model is controversial, those considering the machine can also look forward to the MacBook Air M2, which will launch in July.
