The M2 processor is said to be about 18 percent quicker than the M1 in terms of processor speed, some current benchmarks have confirmed these stats.

As we can see from the benchmarks the M2 multi-core performance is about 20 percent higher than that of Apple’s M1 processor.
Apple will also be unleashing some more powerful performances of the M2 later this year, we are hoping to see an M2 Pro and an M2 Max.
