Apple Unveils Updated MacBook Air and Pro With New M2 Chip
Further improving the devices’ performance and efficiency cores.
Standouts include the redesigned MacBook Air and updated 13-inch MacBook Pro, both of which come with the new M2 chip. According to Apple, the chip “features a next-generation 8-core CPU with advancements in both performance and efficiency cores, along with Apple’s next-generation GPU, which now has up to 10 cores — two more than M1. M2 delivers 100GB/s of unified memory bandwidth and supports up to 24GB of fast unified memory, so it can handle even larger and more complex workloads with ease.”
In addition to the new chip, the MacBook Air boasts a thinner and lighter design, as well as a larger 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display and 1080p FaceTime HD camera. Available in “Silver,” “Space Gray,” “Midnight” and “Starlight,” the device also functions on MagSafe charging and has up to 18 hours of battery life.
Elsewhere, the revamped MacBook Pro supports up to 24GB of unified memory and comes with an active cooling system to sustain its pro performance. For the gamers out there, “playing graphics-intensive games like Baldur’s Gate 3 is also nearly 40% faster than the previous 13-inch MacBook Pro, and up to 3.3x faster for customers upgrading from a model without Apple silicon.”
