The ‌M1‌ Pro features up to 10 CPU cores, with eight high-performance and two energy-efficient cores. In terms of graphics, the ‌M1‌ Pro has a 16-core GPU, which is up to twice as powerful as the ‌M1‌. It has double the width of the memory interface with up to 32GB of unified memory.



The ‌M1‌ Max builds on the ‌M1‌ Pro and starts with doubles memory interface, up to 400 GB/s, up to 64GB of unified memory with 57 billion transistors. It has the same 10-core CPU, but a 32-core GPU that’s up to seven times faster, and is similar performance to discrete graphics while using 70% less power.
