The 15-inch MacBook Air is said to be equipped with the M2 chip, which comes in two versions, the standard version with an 8-core GPU and the premium version with a 10-core GPU. This chip integrates around 20 billion transistors and the CPU part contains eight cores in a 4+4 layout: four high-performance Avalanche cores and four high-efficiency Blizzard cores.

Each of the four performance cores has 192KB of instruction cache, 128KB of data cache and 16MB of shared cache. Clocked at up to 3.5GHz, the performance cores deliver 15.8 trillion operations per second (TOPS) of arithmetic performance, 40% faster than the M1's Neural Engine, which achieves 11TOPS.

In terms of multi-threaded CPU workloads, the M2 delivers approximately 18% better performance than its predecessor, while GPU peak performance is 35% higher.

Aside from the M2, the 15-inch MacBook Air is no different from the 13-inch version, with the MagSafe 3 charging port, Thunderbolt 3 port, 3.5mm headphone jack and Force Touch trackpad all standard.
