Running parallel using build in 10-core GPU and 16-core neural Engine in MacBook Air M2

145 views (last 30 days)
Now I am considering to buy the new macbook air M2 with respect to the following details; 8 core CPU, 10 Cores GPU and 16 cores neural enginge. I would like to use it to perform simbiology in MATLAB as well as the deep learning. Is it possible for simbiology and deeplearning to utilize all capacity of the program, including the calculation using GPU and neural enginge cores?. Do they have a new version for apple silicon M2 chip update?
Thank you,
SIncerely yours,

You can use run the Intel version of many releases of MATLAB on an M2 Mac just fine. I'm a SimBiology developer with an M1Pro MacBook Pro, and that's what I do.
At the time I write this, there is an open beta of a native Apple Silicon version of MATLAB R2022a. I refer you to the answer on this question for the latest information and how to download the open beta.
As described in this question, MATLAB currently only supports NVIDIA GPUs for computation.

There are no supported NVIDIA GPU drivers on Apple computers so you cannot even get an external GPU working unfortunately.
