Topic: For Macs, M2 Macbook Pro for Stems 2.0?

I'm in the process of purchasing a new Macbook Pro to take advantage of the real-time stems 2.0. In the minimum specs, it stats M1 chip is required. Apple also has an M2 chip as well. Have you tested the software on this chip? Will it suffice or is the M1 Pro in the older 14" Macbook required (as it has more GPU cores).

I can't answer your question as I don't have an M2 MacBook Pro, but, I do have an M1.

Stems 2.0 generation on M1 MacBook Pro 16gb

Venbee, Goddard - Messy In Heaven (Official Video).mp4
Music video, length 3:00 minutes, stems completed = 15 seconds

Schak feat. Kim English - Moving All Around (Jumpin) [Extended Mix].mp3
mp3 length 7:08 minutes, stems completed = 25 seconds

Joel Corry, MNEK - Head & Heart (Extended Mix).m4a
Promo Only m4a length 4:05 minutes, stems completed = 15 seconds

I strongly suggest getting 16gb RAM as you can't upgrade it later.
The M2 processor would be better, but, obviously more expensive.
Tip;- Check out the Amazon price as it's usually cheaper than Apple with the same warranty.
Mine from Apple would have been £1899, I paid £1725 a saving of £174!

My Systems Specs;
Main System - MacBook Pro (14-inch, 2022), Apple Silicon M1 Pro, 16gb, 500 gb SSD, macOS Ventura 13.0.1,
VirtualDJ v2023-arm b7356 (Early Access).
External WD Passport Ultra 2Tb HD formatted exFat containing Music & Video databases.

Thanks, but that doesn’t help. We already know that the M1 Pro works for stems 2.0. I need to know if the M2 will work as well.
