Apple has announced the new M2 Ultra chip at WWDC 2023, a powerful new workstation chip capable of handling some of the most demanding content creation workloads.

The M2 Ultra is a 20-core CPU chip with 16 high-performance cores and 4 efficiency cores. It also has a 64-core GPU and a 128-core Neural Engine. This makes it the most powerful chip ever created for a personal computer.

The M2 Ultra is available in the Mac Studio and Mac Pro. In the Mac Studio, it can be configured with up to 192GB of unified memory and 8TB of storage. In the Mac Pro, it can be configured with up to 4TB of unified memory and 128TB of storage.

The M2 Ultra is designed for professional users who need the most powerful performance possible. It is ideal for tasks such as video editing, 3D rendering, and scientific computing.

Apple has also announced a new software update for the Mac called macOS Ventura. This update includes a number of new features for the M2 Ultra, including:

  • A new Metal 3 API that provides up to 5x faster performance for games and graphics applications.
  • A new ProRes transcoding engine that can transcode up to 18 streams of 8K ProRes video simultaneously.
  • A new Neural Engine that can perform up to 15.8 trillion operations per second.

The M2 Ultra and macOS Ventura are available now.

What does this mean for users?

The M2 Ultra is a significant upgrade for Mac users who need the most powerful performance possible. It is ideal for tasks such as video editing, 3D rendering, and scientific computing.

The M2 Ultra is also a sign of Apple’s commitment to its own silicon. Apple has been gradually moving away from Intel chips in recent years, and the M2 Ultra is the latest step in this process.

What does this mean for the future of Mac?

The M2 Ultra is a powerful chip, but it is not the end of the road for Mac. Apple is likely to continue to develop even more powerful chips in the future.

It is also possible that Apple will introduce new Mac models that are specifically designed for the M2 Ultra. For example, Apple could introduce a new Mac Pro that is specifically designed for professional users who need the most powerful performance possible.
