Apple Announces New Mac Studio With M2 Max and M2 Ultra Chips

Alongside a new Mac Pro desktop tower, Apple today announced second-generation Mac Studio models with M2 Max and M2 Ultra chips.

Mac Studio Display Feature Pink
As expected, the M2 Ultra chip is essentially a doubled-up M2 Max chip. It features a 24-core CPU, up to a 76-core GPU, a 32-core Neural Engine, and support for up to 192GB of unified memory. Apple says the Mac Studio with the M2 Ultra chip is up to 3x faster than the previous-generation Mac Studio with the M1 Ultra chip, released last year.

The new Mac Studio has the same overall design as the original model, but with a higher-bandwidth HDMI port that supports up to an 8K display at 240Hz. The back of the Mac Studio has four Thunderbolt 4 ports, a 10 Gigabit Ethernet port, an HDMI port, and two USB-A ports. On the front side, there are two USB-C ports and an SD card slot.

As with the new Mac Pro, and the latest MacBook Pro and Mac mini models, the Mac Studio now supports faster Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3.

The new Mac Studio is available to order starting today, and will begin arriving to customers and launch in stores on Tuesday, June 13. Pricing continues to start at $1,999 for the model with the M2 Max chip, while the M2 Ultra model starts at $3,999.

I'm just about ready to buy a new machine, the Mini M2 Pro looks good, but Apple's insane $400 upgrade for 32 GB RAM on that machine makes the new M2 Studio a no-brainer. I'm pouncing.

I'm surprised the Studio didn't get a price bump given the M2 Pro Mac mini. (simply because if found pricing to be the same for the 1tb - 2tb configs when you update the M2 Pro chip in the Mac mini and do 32gb ram, etc). With the Studio on M2 now, it's a bit better value.

I'm surprised the studio and pro have the same chip. I was waiting for them to announce the Pro would have two M2 ultra's. However, that never happened.

Very close to pulling the trigger on this one, I wonder if they've addressed the fan and noise issues on some M1 Studios.
