One of the coolest new features of the M1 chip is that, because it uses the same processor architecture as the iPhone and iPad, it can now run apps designed for those devices natively. Playing iOS games also proved to be a chore for some reviewers, as TechCrunch noted.
The publication tried the iOS version of Among Us on an M1 MacBook Air and found that, while it ran smoothly, using the trackpad to emulate a touchscreen was a chore. The elephant in the room here across all experiences seems to be the lack of a touchscreen. On April 14th, , Parallels Desktop released a version of its Mac-based virtualization software that lets users run the Insider Preview of Windows 10 for Arm on M1-based Macs as native speeds.
Unfortunately, most Windows for Arm programs themselves run via emulation, but Parallels says it's received enthusiastic feedback from testers about x86 app performance. Wine also added support for M1 macs in its June 10th 6. This lets you use the compatibility layer to run supported Windows-only apps, which you can check here. As for official support for Windows on M1 from Microsoft, it's unlikely, but Apple senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi said to Ars Technica shortly after the chip released "We have core technologies for them to do that, to run their ARM version of Windows But that's a decision Microsoft has to make.
Early in February, Intel fired back at Apple's M1 claims with benchmarks of its own. These benchmarks apply to its 11th generation "Tiger Lake" processors, which have been available since October of last year. Regardless of the wide availability of existing testing data, the company still wants to prove that Windows 10 laptops equipped with Tiger Lake can beat Apple M1 machines, though as with all vendor provided benchmarks, take them with a grain of salt.
This goes against what we saw when we reviewed the MacBook Pro with M1. Gaming was more even, though Intel's benchmarks coyly tease Apple for a number of games that don't have Mac support by claiming the M1 runs them at "0 fps. Intel also took aim at Apple for supposedly not performing as well on the specific tests that manufacturers must pass to get its "Intel Evo" certification.
These are meant, according to Intel's studies, to provide a better notebook experience, and include tasks like "switching to Calendar" in Outlook and "starting a video conference in Zoom" as quickly as possible. Intel hasn't made it clear how these tests were run, though these are generally pretty simple tasks that run well on most modern systems, so we're talking miniscule gains here. Battery life is also part of Evo certification, and when stacking the Acer Swift 5 against the MacBook Air in a test for which laptop could stay alive longer when running a Netflix stream alongside multiple browser tabs, Intel found the MacBook Air came ahead with 6 minutes more life.
Intel also included a number of disclaimers along with its tests, plus digs at the lack of touchscreen or diverse form factor options on MacBooks as well as the difficulty in using more than one external display with Apple M1 devices. The company also targeted the limitations of Apple M1's x86 emulation, which we discussed above. Intel's also gone hard on advertising against Apple, with a new " Go PC " ad campaign that's even gone far enough as hiring the old old " I'm a Mac " guy.

Topics Processors. See all comments Your own Dell Geekbench 5. Not so bad compared to M1 6, Not to forget AMD is faster then Intel and 7nm should be lower power.
TJ Hooker said:. While the former may be used for intensive workloads as fast as possible, such as for demanding apps, the efficiency cores are instead employed for lower workload tasks, such as web browsing, while minimizing power usage. Interestingly, Apple has made it possible for all eight cores at once, rather than limiting the number.
While not offering the same performance as a true eight-core processor that has identical cores, the use of all cores will still give the chip a performance boost when needed. Claimed to be the "world's fastest integrated graphics," the eight-core version of the GPU can handle nearly 25, threads, has execution units, and can work at up to 2.
Borrowing the concept from the mobile device lines, the M1 also includes a core Neural Engine, capable of up to 11 trillion operations per second. Furthermore, it is also said to have 15 times faster machine learning performance than previous Macs. Apple also employs a unified memory architecture, consisting of high-bandwidth, low-latency memory in a single pool.
Instead of separating and duplicating data into different data pools, Apple instead intends the different technologies in the SoC to access the same data from the single large pool. Apple has never put a strong emphasis on the gigahertz race. With the Apple Silicon M1 chip in the new Macs, this is more notable than ever before, with absolutely no discussion of chip speed at all. And, Tim Cook put a fine point on why. At the reveal, Cook noted that about half of the last year's Mac purchasers are new to the Mac — most of which also don't care about X.
Y Gigahertz spec races. And, our review of the M1 MacBook Pro approaches it more from that standpoint, than it does the performance-over-all crowd. But, it should be addressed, in a tailored piece for those looking for that information. Performance is a factor for a segment of the population, including devout AppleInsider readers — so, here we are.
All benchmark results in this article are taken from staff members' machines and other machines on-hand in an operating environment temperature of between 20C and 22C 68F to 72F. None were pulled from benchmark aggregators — but we did sanity-check our results with machines listed by the benchmarking software developers.
The inch MacBook Pro's M1 has a wide array of competitors in this benchmark roundup of Macs used by AppleInsider writers, one that may be considered unusually wide. On the more modest end of the scale are a pair of Mac minis, equipped with a 3. Moving to the same product category, there are three MacBook Pro models being tested, aside from the M1 version, including two inch MacBook Pros from One has a six-core 2.
The third is a inch MacBook Pro from , using an 8-core 2. Rounding out the list on the high-end is a Mac Pro , fitted with an Intel Xeon W, an 8-core processor clocked at 3. While the model has a vast amount of RAM, weighing in at GB, this isn't really much of a bonus as most benchmarking software will easily run at more conventional memory capacities, leaving the majority of the Mac Pro's allocation unused.
The first bout of testing was performed using Geekbench 5, a cross-platform benchmarking tool that works across processor types. The same tool can be used to benchmark both desktop-class processors and mobile chips, making it an ideal tool for examining the ARM-based M1 against the x86 architecture of the other Intel chips. We are employing Geekbench's single-core and multi-core testing for this section, as a basic test of how each type of workload is handled by the processors.
This makes it faster than a relatively-recent Intel Core i9, and even the Mac Pro's Xeon, a chip family generally considered to be a workhorse of processing. It's a somewhat similar story when you turn to the multi-core test, as the 7, achieved by the M1 is very impressive and beats the vast majority of the field.
For multi-core tasks, this demonstrates the M1 can outpace many Macs available today, and can keep pace with the high-performance processors used in the more premium end of the market. You may also notice in the graphs that there are two sets of Geekbench results for the M1, with one considerably higher than the other.
This is because the benchmarks were run twice: natively and through Rosetta 2. Rosetta 2 is Apple's automatic software translation tool included in macOS Big Sur , which performs real-time translation of code from one that would be used on an Intel processor into a form that is compatible with the M1.
The tool was created to enable the majority of apps made for Intel processors to be compatible with the M1 until developers recode and recompile the software for the new chip line. Using Rosetta 2 does have an impact on performance, as resources have to be used to perform the just-in-time translation, which in turn hits speed. Obviously, this does equate to a similar performance hit in everyday use, but not as much as you may think.
Even with the lower scores, the Rosetta 2-affected M1 is still faster than all of the in-test Intel processors for single-core performance. While it's nowhere near the Mac Pro and the inch MacBook for multi-core, it still manages to be in the same performance ballpark as the rest of the group, with the further exception of the core i3 Mac mini. What does this mean to you?
Rosetta 2 will keep apps you want to use working for a while longer and at a comparable speed to what you're already used to. At least, until the app's developer creates a new version that doesn't require it. A second benchmark suite Cinebench relies on technologies used by Cinema 4D to measure how single and multi-core processing functions. The R23 version of the benchmark tool added support for Apple's M1 SoC, allowing it to be compared against its Intel counterparts.
For the single-core results, its the same story as observed in the comparative Geekbench testing, with the M1 storming away from the rest of the pack with 1, The multi-core results fare similarly, with the M1 appearing in the top half of the table with 7, points, narrowly beating the Core i7 Mac mini. The varying result can easily be put down to how each benchmark functions and compiles scores, but the big takeaway here is that the M1 still performs well. Affinity Photo is, as the name suggests, professional-level photo editing software.
As an image-manipulation tool, it can put hefty demands on the processor, as well as relying on the GPU and Metal to accelerate the processing of some tasks. As it also includes a benchmarking tool and has been updated to work on both Intel processors and the M1, it can also be used for our comparison.
This first group of results relates to how each of the systems managed on processing power alone. Vector-based calculations and raster processing are tested, two types of processing task that are required for image manipulation. Given what was shown during the Geekbench tests, it's unsurprising to see that the M1 has done well for single-core processing, once again beating all others in the test with a wide margin, scoring points while its nearest rival managed For multi-core raster processing, the Mac Pro and inch MacBook Pro both do better than the M1, but the new chip still manages to show itself to be extremely capable.
The "Combined" test is where the benchmark uses a mix of both vector and raster-based content at the same time. The result here is pretty similar to that of multi-core raster processing, which again shows the M1 can hold its own in this area. Normally, this sort of test would be a landslide victory for Macs with a discrete GPU installed rather than just relying on integrated graphics.
However, Apple's bold claims of graphical performance have been proven to not only be true, but also very impressive when put against the usually powerful discrete competition. As both the discrete and integrated GPUs can be used together in Affinity Photo, the benchmark also accounts for that with some of the models. On the combined content scores, the M1's GPU manages to score the highest for a single GPU, beating all discrete-based versions by a hefty margin once more.
Most users would expect integrated graphics improvements to do well just against older integrated graphics systems, but here the M1's GPU is actively beating powerful discrete GPUs. In some cases, it's even beating the discrete GPU being assisted by integrated graphics, a feat which underscores what Apple has managed to pull off here.
The question that crossed many existing Mac owners' minds when the first batch of M1 Macs surfaced would have been "how does it compare against what I have already? In these benchmarks, it is plain to see that the M1 is certainly one of the best options on the market. In practically all of the tests, it either outpaced the incumbent Intel-based processors or kept pace with the top end of the group. Even in the tests involving Rosetta 2, the M1 managed to score admirably.
To those concerned that there would be too much of a performance hit for compatibility purposes, the results indicate that there is one, but not enough to make it feel too slow. The results may also be a bit of a shock to those who hold faith in traditional powerhouse systems like the Mac Pro, which the M1 manages to beat in some of the tests, at least with this particular configuration of processor and GPU.
While the main thing to take from this is that the M1 is certainly an upgrade option, consider that this is Apple's first M-class SoC release. Down the line, it will most likely come out with the "M2," "M1X," or whatever it will call the next chip, one which it will most likely cover the middle and upper end of Apple's product catalog. If the M1 does this well against seemingly powerful Intel processors, the next release could be a barnstormer.
