Consult with Lloyd, to design a complete system for photography or similar including backup and data safety

MPG tested both the 14-inch and 16-inch models Apple 2023 MacBook Pro M3 Max 128GB /4TB, model Z1AU002AK and model Z1AF001AN. See all Apple MacBook Pro M3 Max.


2023 MacBook Pro M3 Max

The M3 Max chip has 12 performance + 4 efficiency = 16 cores.

The M2 Ultra chip has 16 performance + 8 efficiency = 24 cores.

Once 13 or 17 CPU cores are used, respectively,a drop in per CPU aggregate performance can be expected, since the efficiency cores are slower than the performance cores.

Per-CPU performance — SHA512 hashing

Out to 15 CPU cores, the M3 Max chip outperforms the M2 Ultra by about 10% out to 14 cores, 7% at 15 cores, and the same speed at 16 cores.

Both CPUs apparently have one or two CPUs that can run at higher speed if the other cores are not being used.

Results identical on 14-inch and 16-inch 2023 MacBook Pro M3 Max.
