General info

Type

Laptop

The market that the CPU is designed for.
Has integrated graphics
Apple M2 Pro (10-core CPU / 16-core GPU)
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
Thermal Design Power (TDP)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
CPU temperature

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

If the CPU exceeds the maximum operating temperature then problems such as random resets can occur.
PCI Express (PCIe) version

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) is a high-speed interface standard for connecting components, such as graphics cards and SSDs, to a motherboard. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
Supports 64-bit
Apple M2 Pro (10-core CPU / 16-core GPU)
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.

Performance

CPU speed

6 x 3.5GHz & 4 x 2.4GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
turbo clock speed

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
Has an unlocked multiplier
Apple M2 Pro (10-core CPU / 16-core GPU)
Some processors come with an unlocked multiplier which makes them easy to overclock, allowing you to gain increased performance in games and other apps.
A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
L3 cache

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
L1 cache

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.
