The computer industry’s reaction to Apple’s new M1 chips has been fairly muted so far. After its positive results from Apple’s ARM-based chips in terms of impressive performance and battery life, Intel issued its first official statement for Apple’s new M1 MacBooks with its review.
11th Generation Intel processors pass Apple M1
Intel published a new comparison, revealing the differences between Adobe Premiere Pro exports and tasks in both Photoshop and Lightroom Classic. Intel’s 11th. Generation processors passed Apple’s M1 processor in all tasks.
Intel also tested gaming on both chips to indicate that most games are not available on macOS. Of the games tested, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Hitman and Borderlands 3 run at higher average frame rate on the M1.
Most of the tests performed are not industry-standard criteria because Intel tested it with hardware acceleration technology for macBook Pro with a MacBook Air, especially for battery life tests. In addition, macBook Pro battery life appeared to be superior to MacBook Air and similar Windows laptops, but MacBook Air passed PCs with Intel processors by only 6 minutes.
Intel also argues that PCs offer more options, better perimeter compatibility, and multi-monitor support. The difference is clear, especially when you consider that the MacBook Pro and Air with M1 processors support only one external display.
Intel is clearly thought to be concerned about Apple’s early chips, and the company is expected to respond with its own processors rather than comparative tests. Intel’s new CEO Pat Gelsinger is said to be ready to fight Apple’s M1 chips in the coming years, mentioning to his immediate circle that Intel should oversting Apple in the future.
