Apple M1 Pro and M1 Max performance evolution



Apple M1 Pro and M1 Max performance evolution


Yesterday’s Apple event hosted the debut of the M Series of processors from , and it was a surprise that the two models were released together, namely Apple M1 Pro and M1 Max. First, let’s look at the Apple M1 Pro , manufactured in the 5nm process, the number of transistors has increased to 33.7 billion, of which the CPU is composed of 10 cores, which includes eight large cores and two small cores. Among them, large cores with Ultra Wide pipeline architecture, each core or instruction cache is 192KB level 1, 128KB level 1 data cache, L2 cache with the number of cores raised to 24MB.

Among them, large cores with Ultra Wide pipeline architecture, each core or instruction cache is 192KB level 1, 128KB level 1 data cache, L2 cache with the number of cores raised to 24MB. Small cores for a wide pipeline architecture, each core continues to 128KB Level 1 Instruction Cache, 64KB Level 1 Data Cache, 4MB Level 2 Cache, which reportedly can achieve speeds up to 70% faster to M1.

GPU has been doubled to 16 cores, floating point performance is 5.2TFlops, 2048 execution units, supports up to 49512 concurrent threads, graphics performance compared to M1 has increased to twice. The M1 Pro also supports 32GB of unified memory for multiple displays and Thunderbolt 4, secure encryption, etc.

Officially, the CPU performance of the M1 Pro is 1.7 times that of a traditional eight-core notebook processor with 30W power consumption, and the GPU power consumption is 70% lower than a mobile graphics card with the same performance.

The time has come to analyze the most powerful performance of Apple M1 Max, the same 5nm process, the number of transistors has increased to 57 billion, CPU cores are also ten, neural engine cores are 16.

The main improvement is in the GPU. GPU core size doubled again to 32 and with it a significant increase in performance, 4,096 execution units, up to 9,8,304 concurrent threads, 10.4TFlops floating point arithmetic power, image processing speed compared with the M1, up to 4 times larger.

Unified memory capacity increased to 64GB LPDDR5, bandwidth doubled to 512bit 400GB/s, this new Apple chipset can be considered the most powerful professional grade notebook processor on Mac so far.

Apple claims that the CPU performance of the M1 Max is 1.7 times that of traditional eight-core notebook processors with 30W power consumption and 2 times more powerful than the Core i9 in the previous MacBook Pro. of machine learning is 3-20 times higher than the Intel Core i9 processor.
