It has also been reported that Intel’s 13th generation Core HX series gaming processors will be launched in February, with the Intel Core i9-13980HX model having a maximum frequency of 5.6GHz, which is anticipated to surpass the M2 Max and becoming the new top-performing laptop processor.

Official data shows that Apple’s latest flagship processor, the M2 Max chip, has 67 billion transistors, 10 billion more than the M1 Max chip and more than three times the number in the M2 chip, pushing the capabilities and performance of the Apple chip even further.

The M2 Max chip features a new-generation 12-core CPU, similar to the M2 Pro chip. Its graphics processor is more powerful, with 38 cores and a larger L2 cache. Its graphics processing speed is up to 30% higher than that of the M1 Max chip.
