With a 16-core neural network engine, the machine learns 15 times faster.There are also the latest ISPs (image signal processors), the latest hardware security partitions, storage controllers, low-power media encoding and decoding engines, and SUPPORT for USB 4.
More importantly, after Apple used its own customized chip, the battery life of Mac with M1 chip was doubled due to the more flexible control of power consumption and the inherent advantages of ARM architecture.
You see, it’s not hard to see why Apple would want to make its own Mac chips, rather than follow Intel’s chip updates.
As I mentioned in my previous article, the single-core performance of the MacBook Pro with Intel chips increased by 25.4% and multi-core performance by 122% in the 6 years from 2013 to 2019. However, it was not until 2018 that the multi-core performance began to improve significantly after Intel updated the Coffee Lake chip.
In the same period, apple’s own A series of new products used in the iPhone, the single-core performance increased five times, as well as the Intel chip, multi-core performance increased six times.
And when M1 chip is officially unveiled, the Mac with M1 chip finally has a performance improvement that can be measured “N times”, as well as double the battery life.
It is precisely because Of Apple’s independent control of its own computers from chips to hardware and systems that the Mac’s uniqueness and advantages over other computers will be more obvious.
For example, before switching to an ARM-built chip, the Mac would plug an ARM-built chip called Apple T2 into the machine to do Touch Bar, fingerprint unlock, “Hey Siri,” voice hand, multimedia accelerator, and so on.
With a full switch to ARM, M1 macs can be instantly woken from sleep mode, like iphones and ipads, with vastly improved performance and better heat control, and apps on iOS and the iPadOS are also available on macs.
Crazy addition of three new products
Apple wants to move all of its devices over the next few years to ARM-based processors, and the first step will be to upgrade to lower-priced entry-level products.So last night, a new MacBook Air, a 13-inch MacBook Pro and a Mac Mini were unveiled.
Although they all use the M1 chip, Apple has apparently made some effort to make a distinction in terms of performance.
The MacBook Air is quieter with a fanless design, 3.5 times CPU performance, 5 times GPU performance, 9 times machine learning, and 2 times SSD performance compared to the previous generation.
