Apple's M2 Ultra is a mighty processor with 24 general-purpose cores and up to 76 integrated GPU cores. It is also probably faster than Intel's 28-core Xeon W found in the 2019 Mac Pro, so new Mac Pro workstation owners will feel a significant performance uplift. But according to a purported benchmark, this CPU cannot beat competitors from AMD and Intel in Geekbench 5 (via @VadimYuryev) as they boast very high clocks or feature a formidable core count.

But, as pointed out by some of the article comments, not bad for a couple of stitched together laptop CPU's.

Doesn't affect me though, I doubt I could afford the power bill to run any of these let alone the cost of buying one and maxing-out the RAM.
