Apple’s chip team continues to embarrass everyone else in the business. Just clocked a clean 400 on the Speedometer 2.0 test for the M2 Air. That’s 33% faster than the M1 (and A15) can do. 2.5x faster than a 4.2Ghz i7 Intel iMac. Bananas. Try your own CPU: https://t.co/o25wL35Zu4 pic.twitter.com/WbBmys2bk1

Apple WebKit team leader Maciej Stachowiak (@othermaciej) responded to Hanson’s tweet by saying that Safari 15.6 with the M2 processor is the first combination to score over 400 on the Speedometer. I’m replying.
I believe Safari on M2 Macs is the first hardware/software combo to 400 on Speedometer. Just a few months ago the record was 300. https://t.co/0BfhPvCcot
