Apple M2 Pro 19-Core GPU

Apple M2 Pro 19-Core GPU

The Apple M2 Pro 19-Core-GPU is an integrated graphics card by Apple offering all 19 cores in the M2 Pro Chip.

The graphics card has no dedicated graphics memory but can use the fast LPDDR5-6400 unified memory with a 256 bit bus (up to 200 GBit/s). The GPU clocks from 444 MHz to 1398 MHz and was maintaining the 1398 MHz in games.

According to Apple, the performance should be 30% higher than the old 16-core-GPU in the M1 Pro.

The GPU is intended to use Apple Metal 2 API and could still be based on the older PowerVR architectures (last used in the Apple A10). A new feature in the MacBook Pro 14 and 16 of 2023 is the support for HDMI 2.1 and 8k output.

The Apple M2 Pro is manufactured in the second generation 5nm process at TSMC. The power consumption of the GPU part in the M2 Pro is slightly below 20 Watt in games (Borderlands 3 measured with powermetrics).
