The first member of the Apple Silicon concept, the Apple M1, challenges Intel and AMD processors at a certain level and below. The next members will set the bar much higher.
Apple’s point about the customized chip is admirable. Having stepped fearlessly into the desktop processor market, where Intel and AMD are going head-to-head, Apple has managed to show strength in its first move.
Early tests of the Apple M1 showed that intel and AMD were defying processors below a certain level. The new iPad Pro, which debuts with the Apple M1 processor, challenges laptops in its first benchmark results.
Geekbench 5 single-core tests with iPad Pro with 16GB memory with a 12.9-inch screen scored 1727 points. The Surface 4 with core i7-1185G7 processor scored 1513, while the HP ProBook x360 G8 with Ryzen 5800U processor scored 1431.
In the multi-core test, the Ryzen 5800U takes the lead and scores 7376. The Apple M1 is just behind with 7270 points. The Intel Core i7-1185G7 processor also scores 5747. In these tests, the Apple 14 processor also achieves very successful results.
It is known that in the coming period the Apple M1 chipset will go to 16 cores, 24 cores, and even 32 kernel scalings. In this respect, the list of processors that he will leave behind in the tests will be quite high. On the other hand, it should be said that the Apple A15 Bionic processor will also exceed the limits.
