Last month, Geekbench results for unannounced Macs running the upcoming M2 Max chip surfaced online, showing only a slight increase in performance compared to the M1 Max. Now, another batch of scores claiming to be for the M2‌ Max chip has surfaced online, showing an even bigger jump in performance.


In last week’s Geekbench results, the ‌M2‌ Max chip scored 1,853 in single-core and 13,855 in multi-core, which is only a small jump over its predecessor. Now, in a new set of claimed scores for the M2‌ Max, the chip has scored 2,027 in single-core and 14,888 in multi-core. For reference, the ‌M1 Max‌ chip scores 1,755 in single-core and 12,334 in multi-core.

The new Geekbench results don’t provide more details about any upcoming Macs, which we expect to be the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro first. The results list the chip as running on a Mac with ID “Mac14,6” with 96GB of memory and running macOS Ventura 13.2. The only difference between today’s scores and last month’s results is that the updated scores show the M2‌ Max chip with a higher base frequency of 3.68GHz compared to 3.54GHz, which could explain the higher scores.

Apple was initially expected to announce updated Macs with the ‌M2 Pro and ‌M2‌ Max chips in November of this year, but the company has pushed the plans through early 2023. Apple has several new Macs in the works, including the iMac and MacBook Pro modernizers.
