Apple says the M2 Ultra is their largest chip ever, which turns out to be the by-product of two M2 Max chips connected together — essentially doubling performance.


The M2 Ultra supports up to 192GB of RAM, which Apple says is 50 percent more than the M1 Ultra. It also features 800GB/s of memory bandwidth,  a larger GPU that’s up to 30% faster, and a Neural Engine that’s up to 40% faster.

The 24-core CPU of the M2 Ultra consists of 16 high-performance cores and 8 high-efficiency cores. Meanwhile, the GPU can be configured with 60 or 76 next-generation cores.

Both the new Mac Pro and the new Mac Studio can carry the new M2 Ultra processor.
