Apple M2 Max leaked benchmark gets us excited for MacBook Pros in 2023

Apple’s M2 Max chip, which will succeed the current M1 Max, has been spotted in leaked benchmarks giving us an idea of how much faster the next-gen variant might be.

As Wccftech reports, this comes in the form of Geekbench results picked up by Benchleaks on Twitter, which as always with leaks, we should be suitably cautious around.

In Geekbench, the M2 Max racked up a tally of 1,889 points for single-core, and in multi-core pushed ahead to 14,586.

Comparing that to the current M1 Max, which hits about 1,750 and 12,200 respectively, meaning that the M2 Max is shaping up to be around 8% quicker for single-core, and 20% more speedy in terms of multi-core performance.

Analysis: A tidy potential performance boost

It should be no real surprise that the M2 Max takes apparent further strides forward with multi-core performance, given that this chip runs with 12-cores (as shown in the Geekbench spec details here, and widely rumored previously), rather than the 10-cores the M1 Max sports. Two more cores should obviously make a fair bit of difference in multi-core tasks, of course.

Indeed, some folks might argue that they’d expect a little more from the next-gen chip than a 20% multi-core increase, but to us, this seems like a solid enough generational leap. Furthermore, remember this is still relatively early days for testing the M2 Max, and by the time the SoC is actually out there in Apple’s laptops, it’ll doubtless be a bit more honed performance-wise.

We shouldn’t get carried away with our expectations, though, either way, based on an early leaked benchmark. As ever, one single metric is far from the full picture of performance, and the M2 Max will require a broader raft of tests before any conclusions are drawn when it does actually turn up.

When might that be? The rumor mill reckons that new Apple laptops with M2 Max and M2 Pro chips are set to debut in the first quarter of 2023, and those will be MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch models, according to one well-respected source on all things Apple.

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu
