Alleged M2 Max chipset Geekbench specs leak online

The chipset only has a slightly higher single-core and multi-core score, when compared to the 2021 14-inch MacBook Pro with the M1 Max chip

Apple’s alleged 12-core CPU M2 Max chipset is expected to power the company’s upcoming 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro refresh.

While we don’t know much about the chip, new Geekbench scores allegedly of the M2 Max might give us a little bit more information about the chipset.

The Geekbench result was first shared by @VNchocoTaco on Twitter (via MacRumours) was uploaded on Tuesday, November 29th. The score confirms that the processor is a 12-core one, with 3.5GHz of base frequency and 96GB of memory.

Apple’s current 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro come with 32GB base memory, although you can pay $500 extra to purchase a device with 64GB of unified memory. The device analyzed in the Geekbench scoring, called the “Mac14,6” has 96GB of memory, which makes it the highest RAM offering on a MacBook yet. Only the Mac Pro and the Mac Studio are available with higher than 96GB memory options.

“Mac14,6” with the M2 Max chipset has a 1,853 single-core score, and a 13,855 multi-core score. Compared to the Geekbench score of the 2021 14-inch MacBook Pro with the M1 Max chipset, the M2 Max only displays a minor increase in performance.

The Geekbench test was performed on a MacBook running macOS 13.2 (22D21), a build that hasn’t even entered public beta yet. The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with the M2 Max chipset are expected to release in early 2023.
