Expert Verified By

Impressive Performance Gains!!

During Apple’s WWDC Event 2023, which kicked off June 5 through June 9. Apple announced the launch of its reality headset, the Vision Pro, and other hardware, such as Apple’s new top-of-the-line M2 Ultra chip for the Mac Pro.

Apple made its first Chip M1, so they don’t have to rely on chips from AMD or Intel. The M1 chip had an Arm architecture that was more powerful and efficient than the Intel or AMD chips, and now, Apple’s new M2 ultra chip competes with Intel And AMD CPUs and even surpasses them in some benchmarking tools.

Apple M2 Ultra top-of-the-range SoC continues to use TSMC’s 5nm, and Apple has already decided it will give life to its first Mac Pro that replaces the Intel CPU with the M2 Ultra. This powerful system is accompanied by a GPU of up to 76 cores, 192 GB of unified RAM, and an SSD of up to 8 TB.
