Apple on Monday announced the company’s new M1 Pro and M1 Max SoCs, along with 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. Some tesdollarser about the computing power of the M1 Max has already been shared. A Reddit user discovered some graphic tesdollars of M1 Max.
The M1 Max has a 32-core GPU with 16 threads each. Each execution unit has eight ALUs, bringing the total number of ALUs in the M1 Max to 4,096. According to Apple, the GPU offered up to 10.4 TFLOPs of performance. In theory, the GPU in the M1 Max SoC should perform close to the GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile version, which offers 10.91 TFLOPs of pure power.
During its presentation, Apple claimed that the M1 Max’s GPU (60W) rivals NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3080 mobile version (160W). Apple’s chip reportedly offers equivalent performance with 100W less power.
GFXBench appeared as a smartphone benchmark, so tesdollarser is not suitable for modern display kardollaryellow. For this reason, it is useful to approach the GFXBench results carefully, unlike 3DMark. In addition, M1 Max testing was performed on Mac OS X with Metal API, while GeForce RTX 3080 mobile and Radeon RX 6800M tesdollarseries were performed on Windows and OpenGL API.
Apple M1 Max Performance Tesdollarseries
Apple claimed that the graphics performance of the M1 Max is up to four times faster than the original M1. The results showed that Apple’s claims were mostly on point, if not all workloads.
The M1 Max offers pretty good performance alongside the GeForce RTX 3080 Mobile or Radeon RX 6800M. Apple’s chip outperformed NVIDIA and AMD’s GPUs in some workloads, while slightly behind in others.
Considering that models such as the GeForce RTX 3080 Mobil and Radeon RX 6800M meet TDP values of 160W and 145W, respectively, we can say that the power efficiency of the M1 Max is tremendous.
So much so that we need to see more benchmarks to see if the M1 Max is up to what the company claims. It should be noted that Apple did not design its new SoC for gaming. The 5nm SoC was developed for professionals to get powerful CPU and graphics performance on the go on the new MacBook Pros.
