Apple is revolutionizing personal computing with the M1 chip in the new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and Mac Mini
Tech gigantic Apple has got a number of new MacOS devices under control.
They are all powered by the new specially designed M1 chipset. Early benchmark scores point to a revolution in personal computing.
A restarted Apple MacBook Air offers 18 hours of battery life and performance so fast that it scores higher in the benchmark than any other non-M1 Mac currently available.
That includes a 13-inch M1-powered MacBook Pro with a whopping 20 hours of video playback or 17 hours of web browsing on a single charge.
The third new machine with the M1 SoC (system on a chip) is a Mac Mini.
M1 is responsible for this revolution in the computer. It suggests incredible potential that Apple products will offer in the years to come.
M1 is the first personal computer chip to use the latest 5 nanometer process technology. It has an astonishing 16 billion transistors, the most Apple has ever put in a chip.
NEW: 13 inch MacBook Air
The M1 chip offers up to 3.5 times faster CPU performance, up to 6 times faster GPU performance and up to 15 times faster machine learning.
What is equally incredible is that it does all of these while delivering battery life that is twice that of previous generation Macs.
If all of these claims are true, and Apple rarely outperforms, the M1 is delivering the biggest leap the Mac has ever made.
The first benchmark results for the MacBook Air are already published on Geekbench.
These show that the single-core performance of the M1-powered Air is superior to any other Mac available.
While multi-core performance outperforms all 16-inch MacBook Pro models from 2019, including the high-end Intel 10th generation Core i9 model running at 2.4 GHz.
This is a massive development.
The performance increases are due to the four high-performance cores in the M1.
These are combined with four highly efficient cores. These offer a similar performance as the dual-core MacBook Air, but are precisely tailored to the battery life.
With these highly efficient chips, Apple can keep the high-performance cores for the most demanding tasks. These include high-performance photo editing, games, and 4K video editing.
M1 delivers three times the performance per watt than previous Intel chipsets of the current generation of Mac notebooks.
Despite that large number, Apple still managed to pull out the fan. This means that the MacBook Air works quietly.
According to Apple, the MacBook Air lasts 18 hours when watching videos and 15 hours when browsing the Internet.
The 8-core CPU of the MacBook Pro, in conjunction with the machine’s active cooling system, is almost three times faster than the previous generation.
This means that it should deliver breakthrough performance when compiling code, transcoding video, or editing high-resolution photos and videos.
The 8-core GPU is said to be up to five times faster for smoother graphics performance when designing games or new products.
Last but not least, the Mac Mini has up to three times as much power as the last model due to its M1 chip.
It is also claimed to have up to six times the graphics power. And the company said it had five times the performance of the best-selling Windows PC in its price range.
