Does Apple Silicon completely knock down Intel and NVIDIA?Deconstruction of the new M1 Pro and M1 Max Focus-Computer

Apple’s latest 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros are fully converted to their own Apple Silicon chips, including: M1 Pro and M1 Max, the latter with up to 10-core CPU and 32-core GPU built-in, with low power consumption characteristics, or Turn it into a cryptocurrency mining artifact!

  • Apple M1 Pro and M1 Max chips
  • CPU performance is better than Intel Core i7-11800H
  • GPU performance comparable to NVIDIA RTX 3080 Laptop GPU and 40% energy saving

Both M1 Pro and M1 Max are produced using a 5nm process, with 33.7 billion transistors and 57 billion transistors respectively! The M1 Pro is equipped with a maximum of 10-core CPU and 16-core GPU. According to Apple’s official reference chart, comparing laptops with Intel Core i7-11800H octa-core CPUs, the Apple M1 Pro or M1 Max CPU provides more than 1.7 times the CPU performance, and achieve the highest performance of the Intel Core i7-11800H octa-core CPU with as little as 70% power consumption.

M1 Max pays more attention to the number of GPU cores, and the image processing performance is 4 times faster than M1. Apple also compared laptops with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPUs, claiming that the M1 Max with 32-core GPU is comparable to its performance, but its power consumption can be reduced by up to 40%! This is not only conducive to graphics calculations, Apple said that the new MacBook Pro equipped with M1 Max uses Compressor for ProRes video encoding conversion, compared with the previous generation of 16-inch MacBook Pro, the speed is significantly improved by up to 10 times. Some users immediately thought that cryptocurrency “mining”, which has a great demand for GPU performance, might also be very beneficial!

In addition to enhancing the performance of CPU and GPU, M1 Pro and M1 Max can also be equipped with more memory and larger SSD. M1 Pro supports 32GB unified memory, providing 200GB/s memory bandwidth; M1 Max can also support 64GB unified memory, and the memory bandwidth is up to 400GB/s! Supports up to 8TB SSD, the access speed also supports up to 7.4GB/s!
