Apple MacBook Air brings its M2 silicon to Geekbench
Sono, 9 hours agoIt will be the second best-selling laptop (after the Macbook Air M1).Are you kidding or what. The mac os market is very very small.
People don’t use and make videos just for tiktok.

People who got MBA m1 don’t even have to look at it
Anonymous, 8 hours agoSo what shows you the real-life benchmarks? Antu? Where almost all Android manufacturers… moreApple even uses ARM, but they are still able to level the Intel and AMD offering which uses x86 while using more TDP.
Dumbest statement I’ve ever heard. Even m1 max pro trashed by 12th gen intel and it was 10nm vs 5nm.
And about the tdp arm, it’s just a bat like body. Even with less tdp, the m2 hurts thermal throttling. Imagine what will happen if arm has the same tdp as x86. It will just melt.
Now about geekbench. It’s not even a cross-reference in the first place. No real tech reviewers, journalists, and researchers use it in the first place, other than a few Apple-based noob YouTubers like max tech.
And about antutu it was not cross platform before when android had 4 test area and iOS only had 3. But later antutu add another test area as android and compares completely.
Never Apple users never search.
Improvements of the M2 MBA compared to the M1 MBA
1. Better performance
2. Better camera, center stand
4. Superior unified RAM options
5. Faster unified RAM (twice as fast)
6. Improved media encoding/decoding hardware
7. Brighter display
8. Lighter weight…but not by much.
9. Improved audio speakers.
10. 3.5mm jack supports high impedance (provides more power)
11. Larger battery capacity but same runtime.
The M2 Air looks better than the M1 Air, but there’s certainly no incentive to upgrade. Both chips are well within modern performance standards. IMO they should have increased the number of cores.

Where almost every Android maker has tricks to get higher scores? Even Antutu himself said that Android benchmarks shouldn’t be compared to iOS because they’re not supposed to be cross-platform in the first place due to the differences between the two platforms, so the comparisons should only be iOS to iOS and Android to Android, not iOS to Android. Just because Apple gets better results = optimize/cheat? Not because of R&D and their experience in making better chips?
Also, they have just started competing in the desktop sector using their own SoC. Of course he
s going to be beaten by AMD and Intel just from the TDPs they use alone. Apple even uses ARM, but they are still able to level the Intel and AMD offering which uses x86 while using more TDP.
-Casey-, 10 hours agoAccording to these scores, this is a 9% improvement in single core and 15.75% in multicore.The iPad would have been a better deal for you for your use case.

geekbench does not show actual performance
apple optimizes for this platform
most ARM apps for Mac OS are not optimized, even Apple has that’s why AMD Intel PC outperforms them

According to these scores, this represents an improvement of 9% in single-core and 15.75% in multi-core.
I am from India and got M1 Air for INR 84,000 in March and M2 is 120,000.
I don’t see the justification for the extra INR 36,000 (about $450) for the improvements it brings, but that’s just my opinion.
I don’t need a bigger 0.3 inch screen with a notch, or a brighter 100 nit screen.
I don’t need a magsafe port, fast charging, or a faster GPU.
And I don’t use the webcam much, so I don’t really need the 1080p webcam as well.
I’m a user who stays at home all day and uses my laptop for basic things like browsing the internet, attending zoom meetings (720p webcam is fine for indoor lighting) and watching movies, etc.
If I had waited for the macbook air M2, I would still have opted for the M1 model because I just don’t need the improvements it brings.
Also, the wait would have been foolish as the price of the air M1 went up after the launch of the air M2 due to the exchange rate I believe.
