The MacBook Air with the Apple M2 chip is 19% faster than its predecessor in Geekbench’s multi-core test.

Benchmark results of the new MacBook Air with Apple M2 have already started appearing on Geekbench, with performance comparable to the new MacBook Pro on the same chip, and in the multi-core test, the new computer shows an increase over the previous generation MacBook Air, the Apple M1 with a processor.

The new MacBook Air’s test results aren’t impressive, but the improvement over the late 2020 model is clear. The most notable difference between the Apple M2 chip and its predecessor is the graphics subsystem, although the manufacturer has achieved a boost in processor performance.

The MacBook Air with the M2 averaged 1,904 on Geekbench’s single-core test and 8,838 on the multi-core test. Correlating these numbers with the results of the MacBook Air M1, the new computer was 11.61% faster in the single-core test and 19.11% faster in the multi-core test.

It should be noted that the new MacBook Air was slightly inferior to the updated MacBook Pro of the same platform; it scored 1937 and 8962 points respectively. Perhaps we have to thank the active cooling system of the Pro version for this, while the MacBook Air got a passive one without fans.
