Apple’s new Macs, which were unveiled last week, are now shipping across 27 countries and regions in the first wave of availability.
People in the US, Europe, and India, among others, have a choice of the new Mac mini with an M2 or M2 Pro processor, as well as the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with either an M2 Pro or M2 Max chip.
People that have pre-ordered are reporting that their new Macs have begun arriving.
Meanwhile, Apple’s website gives a delivery estimate of 1 working day for the new machines across India, Germany, and the US.
The Apple M2 Pro chipset is built on a second-generation 5nm node and features 40 billion transistors, 20% more than the M1 Pro. The new chip also supports up to 32GB of unified memory with 200GB/s bandwidth. The M2 Pro has 10 or 12 CPU cores – 6 or 8 high-performance cores plus 4 high-efficiency cores – as well as up to 19 GPU cores.
The Apple M2 Max chip has a whopping 67 billion transistors, three times as many as the base M2. Also, it supports up to 96GB of unified memory (4x what the M2 can handle) running at 400GB/s (twice as fast as the M2 Pro). The CPU is the same as the 12-core version of the M2 Pro. The GPU is twice the size with up to 38 cores, the L2 cache is even bigger.
