The new M1 chip outperforms all other processors in Apple devices.

Geekbench tests appeared on the network on performance of 1 core (Single Core) – the results are obvious.

The M1 chip scored 1,689 points in the test, beating the Intel Core i9-10910 (3.6 GHz) and Core i7-10700k (3.8 GHz).

Although in the multi-core test (Multi-Core), Apple M1 is significantly inferior to Intel Xeon. Everything is clear here: what can the M1 with its 8 cores do against the Xeon with 28 cores?

Multi-core test

The maximum Apple M1 scores in the Mac mini (7401 points) and the 2020 MacBook Pro (7288 points).

For most users, a multi-core Intel Xeon (28 cores) is not needed at all. And no software has yet been written that fully uses the power of at least 10 cores, let alone 28 cores.

Let me remind you that these synthetic test results often do not reflect the real picture. How the MacBook and iMac on the Apple M1 chip will cope with everyday tasks is still unknown. We are waiting for the adaptation of software and games to the new architecture.

In addition, the Geekbench tests do not take into account graphics performance. The Apple M1 is significantly inferior to the top-end external video cards from AMD and GeForce.

Cinebench test

Unlike the Geekbench benchmark, which runs multiple algorithms and then calculates a geometric value (which can skew the test results if the architecture uses different optimizations for specific algorithms), Cinebench brute force measures CPU power. It is the benchmark for most enthusiasts when it comes to measuring processor power.

This is a rendering benchmark that can use all the processing power of the processor (and all its threads in a multi-core test).

And here are the results we see in the mobile test:

Cinebench R23 benchmark
Single-core test

The Apple M1 chip (assembled using 5nm technology) scored 1498 points, yielding to the quad-core Intel Core i7 (assembled using 10nm technology)! What is going on?!

Yes, many applications and games do not use 1 core for a long time, preferring multithreading. Then let’s look at the results of the mobile multi-core test:

Multi-core test

The multi-core AMD Ryzen 9 and Ryzen 7 processors are head and shoulders above the Apple M1 and Intel Core i7, although they are made using outdated technology.

What conclusion can be drawn? Apple’s M1 chip competes with Intel’s Core i9 and Core i7, AMD Ryzen, and Intel Xeon processors with impressive performance.

But by and large, Apple M1 is not the most productive chip among mobile devices.
