Is there a benchmark site like you see for gfx cards? Main goal, music making with logic pro

Imac 2019 (intel) 3.6ghz 8 core 40gb ram (this is my current main computer)


imac m2 pro 10‑core CPU, 16‑core GPU en 16‑core Neural Engine - 32gb ram (considering to buy)

Just want to make sure it's a good upgrade and not just very similar. I bought mac studio and screen 6 months ago and sent all back due to whine.

I am ditching the imac to get a monitor I can use with pc.

This is your machine:

This is the top spec M2 Pro mini:

Multicore is basically ~2x your current machine, Single is ~1.5 your current machine.

RAM is a harder thing to quantify in synthetic benchmarks. I'm presuming you've added 32GB of aftermarket RAM to the 8GB installed in the factory, so maybe try removing the 8GB of RAM and seeing if the reduced RAM affects your workflow at all.
