A few days ago, Apple officially unveiled its new M1 chipset for Mac devices, which is a part of the company’s Apple Silicon ARM-powered processors. Now, with the new M1-powered Mac devices going on sale, details about its performance are surfacing online.
A Cinebench benchmarking result of the MacBook Pro powered by the M1 processor, 8GB RAM, and 512GB internal storage reveals that the laptop scored 7,508 points in the multi-core test and 1,498 in the single-core test.
To put that into perspective, the scores are similar to Intel’s 11th-generation chipsets. The 2019 16-inch low-end MacBook Pro with a 2.6GHz processor scored 6912 points in the multi-core test and 1,113 points in the single-core test.
Recently, the M1-powered MacBook Pro was spotted on Geekbench 5 which revealed that the newly launched machine outperforms the Core i9-9880H powered 16-inch MacBook Pro in both single- and multi- core tests.
Apple’s newly launched M1 chipset is made using the 5nm process and packs 16 billion transistors, which is significantly higher than the 11.8 billion used in the iPhone 12’s A14 Bionic. The CPU core has an eight-core arrangement, which includes four high-performance cores for heavy-duty work and four high-efficiency cores for low-priority tasks.
It also has dedicated circuitry for graphics and artificial intelligence processing. The memory chips are also housed within the same chip package alongside the processor, which should result in better speed.
Apple Silicon’s M1 chipset-powered Mac devices are claimed by the company to be three and a half times faster than the previous Intel-based models. The graphics speed also comes in five times faster, according to Apple.
