M2 Max
Packed with 67 billion transistors, which is 10 billion more than the M1 Max and more than three times the amount in the M2, the Apple M2 Max integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O, and more into a single system on a chip (SoC). Built with 2nd-Gen 5nm process technology, the Apple M2 Max delivers the performance you need without sacrificing power efficiency. The 12-Core CPU features eight performance cores and four high-efficiency cores. The 16-Core Neural Engine provides support for on-device machine learning acceleration.
macOS and pro Apps, Optimized for Apple Silicon
With macOS designed to scale with Apple silicon, the system automatically benefits from the increased graphics, massive memory, and powerful machine learning of M2 Max. With thousands of apps to choose from, you can fully customize how you work, play, and create.

Experience faster performance in optimized apps:
  • Final Cut Pro
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • DaVinci Resolve Studio
  • Compressor
  • Autodesk Maya
  • Xcode, and more
  • Powerful Connections
    Mac Studio lets you create the studio of your dreams with an array of 12 high-performance ports, located on the back and front for easy access. Transfer photos and videos with an SDXC card reader. Connect to up to 8K resolution displays through the HDMI port. Then add up to another four displays through the Thunderbolt 4 ports.

    Sync with next-generation accessories using Bluetooth 5.3, and enjoy high-speed wireless throughput with Wi-Fi 6E. You can also opt for a wired connection via the 10 Gb Ethernet jack. There are also dual USB-A ports and a 3.5mm audio jack for added connectivity options. You can also sync with other Apple devices, such as your MacBook Pro, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch for a seamless experience.
    Studio Display & Mac Studio: Dream Team
    Apple designed the Mac Studio to pair together with the Studio Display for the ultimate studio setup. With its breathtaking 27" 5K Retina display, 12MP Ultra-Wide camera with Center Stage, studio-quality three-mic array, and six-speaker sound system with Spatial Audio, the Studio Display completes the full Mac experience. You can also connect up to five displays simultaneously.
    Play It Cool and Quiet
    Inside the 7.7" square enclosure is an efficient thermal system that allows the Mac Studio to handle intensive, sustained tasks without slowing down. Even with heavy workloads, the whisper quiet fans help you to stay focused on your tasks.

    With 100 percent recycled materials in its magnets and in the solder of the main logic board, as well as responsible packaging, and a greener supply chain, the Mac Studio was engineered to minimize its environmental impact.
