Well, though we were not waiting for the same but Geekbench testing results have revealed unannounced Mac hardware. A pair of unannounced Macs have now been discovered. This comes as Apple is largely expected to announce new MacBook Pro and Mac Studio models in early 2023.
The Apple’s M2 Mac Benchmark Score
The survey results for November indicate two unreleased Macs with model identifiers “Mac14,6” and “Mac15,4”, as per MacRumors tipter.
The “Mac14,6” has been seen on Geekbench testing data. The findings are thought to reflect the M2 Max chip, with single-core scores of 2027 and a multi-core score of 14888. The M2 Max processor scored 1853 on single core and 13855 on multi-core in another leaked Geekbench result.
However, we haven’t seen the “Mac15,4” identifier anywhere else than this Steam data. This model number is most likely referring to another unannounced M2-powered Mac. And a new Mac Studio or a different MacBook model.
Apple is preparing the release of many new Macs in 2023. This includes new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. Along with the Mac Studio and the long-awaited Apple Silicon-powered Mac Pro. There have also been rumours about a new Mac mini with an M2 processor inside.
The M2 Max Processor
The M2 Max processor is most likely to power the high-end models of the upcoming MacBook Pro. The M2 Pro processor will most likely power the basic variant of the MacBook Pro.
The M2 processor, which drives the 2022 MacBook Air and the current iPad Pro, is just 11% quicker than the M1, so it’s hardly surprising that the M2 Pro and M2 Max range isn’t a significant advance over its predecessor.
