According to a new report, Apple’s new M3 Pro chip with a 12-core CPU offers slightly faster CPU performance than the M2 Pro chip with a 12-core CPU. Geekbench 6 points Discovered today Vadim JurjevCo-host of YouTube channel Max Tech. This is only a reference result, so more results are needed to confirm accuracy.
Apple on Monday announced new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M3, M3 Pro and M3 Max chips. This is the default result to see it For 14″ models, the listed model ID is based on “Mac15.6”.
The results show that the M3 Pro got a single-core score of 3,035 and a multi-core score of 15,173. If these results hold true, the M3 Pro is up to 14% faster than the M2 Pro in terms of single-core performance, but only 6% faster. In terms of multi-core performance For the most demanding tasks and workflows.
Both the M2 Pro and M3 Pro have up to 12 CPU cores, but the M3 Pro only has six high-performance cores and six efficiency cores, while the M2 Pro has eight high-performance cores and four efficiency cores. Although the M3 Pro is manufactured using TSMC’s 3nm process, the chip’s performance gains are lower than the M2 Pro’s 5nm process due to the lower performance cores. The M3 Pro has 25% less memory bandwidth and fewer GPU cores than the M2 Pro.
By limiting the number of high-performance cores in the M3 Pro, Apple has made a bigger difference between the M3 Pro and the M3 Max, which have up to 12 high-performance cores. However, this makes the M3 Pro slightly faster than the M2 Pro.
Geekbench 6 results from earlier this week showed the M3 Max to be up to 45% faster than the M2 Max, while the standard M3 chip is up to 20% faster than the standard M2 chip, making the M3 Pro the least advanced chip. Time series Of course, the M3 Pro is still a significant upgrade for those coming from Intel-based Macs. The M3 Pro is also up to 20% faster than the M1 Pro chip, which is a nice improvement.
As always, benchmarks provide a useful guide, but actual performance may vary.
The new MacBook Pro models can be ordered now. The M3 and M3 Pro configurations will reach customers and be available in stores starting Tuesday, November 7 The M3 Max configuration will be launched later in November.
