A second set of alleged M2 Max Geekbench results have been spotted online, and with faster CPU speeds, they are a huge improvement over the previous leak.
When the first benchmarks of the M2 Max were revealed on Geekbench in November, they showed little improvement over its predecessor, the M1 Max. However, the new Geekbench entry now shows a pretty significant difference.
Previous M2 Max scores showed a single-core score of 1853 and a multi-core score of 13855. The new scores are single-core 2027 and multi-core 14888.
Both tests identify the device as Mac14.6. References to this model were first spotted in July 2022, but it's still unclear if it refers to the new Mac Studio or the MacBook Pro.
It is also possible that the figures are fabricated, but if they are accurate, they also show how the November leak differs from this one. Previous data said the Mac had one 12-core processor running at 3.54GHz, while the new one has the same number of cores but runs at 3.68GHz.
Unsurprisingly, if there is a Mac Studio M2 version, it is now not expected until 2023. There have been persistent rumors that the MacBook Pro M2 will arrive in November 2022, but Tim Cook's own comments have suggested that this will also be next year now.
