Apple claims 40% performance boost for neural models in new Macbook Pro

In Brief

Apple claims that the neural models in the new MacBook Pros have a 40% performance gain.

It is claimed that new laptops do a variety of activities, such as rendering Cinema 4D effects, color grading in DaVinci Resolve, and picture production, faster than their predecessors.


The Trust Project is a worldwide group of news organizations working to establish transparency standards.

Apple has claimed a 40% performance boost for the neural models in its new MacBook Pros. The new laptops are said to be faster than their predecessor in a number of tasks, including Cinema 4D effects rendering, DaVinci Resolve color grading, and image generation.

The speed boost is due to the new Neural Engine, which is said to be faster and more efficient than the previous generation. This will be a welcomed addition for those who use their MacBook Pros for professional tasks that require speed and accuracy.

So far, there have been no independent tests of the new Neural Engine’s performance. However, if Apple’s claims are accurate, then the new MacBook Pros should be a significant step up from the previous generation in terms of speed and capabilities.

Apple has made a major push into the world of CPUs and GPUs with their M1 series of chips. The M1 series of chips were manufactured in TSMC’s 5nm process that delivered enhanced CPU and GPU capabilities. The new M2 Pro and M2 Max chips are also fabricated in the 5nm process, which will allow the chips to deliver improved computing and graphical performance while also being more power efficient.

As for the specifications, Apple’s M2 Max chip will feature up to 12-core CPU and 38-core GPU with up to 96GB unified memory. In contrast, the M1 Max chip featured a 10-core CPU with a 32-core GPU. Henceforth, you can expect major gains in graphical performance with the latest chips. Nonetheless, you can also expect higher CPU performance as the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips have been manufactured on a 5nm process and boast enhanced power efficiency.
