Apple MacBook M1 is still dependent on Intel Chipsets


The new MacBook Apple M1 can’t get rid of Intel Chipsets. Although the main processor uses nothing Intel, the new MacBook Pro still hasn’t completely gotten rid of the chipsets provided by the former, such as the Thunderbolt 4 master control. Thunderbolt 4 has the same maximum peak bandwidth of 40 Gbps as Thunderbolt 3 and can be connected to dual 4K or 8K displays.

The newly released MacBook Pro has three full Thunderbolt 4 interfaces on the outside, and all of them need Intel’s Thunderbolt 4 8000 series master controller to work smoothly. Therefore, given that Apple wants to completely cut Intel on its future products, and unless it customizes its own set of high-speed interface transmission standards.

As Apple is an important member of the USB-IF Association, Thunderbolt 4 for MacBook Pro also has the world’s first USB-C v2.1 interface standard, with support for USB PD 3.1 fast charging, which means a theoretical maximum of 48V / 5A ( 240W). For security reasons, Apple has limited it to 28V / 5A (140W), but unfortunately, there is no compatible USB-C EPR cable on the market, so if you want to reach 140W of charging power, just the can do with MagSafe 3, fast magnetic charging, which does not exclude the possibility of more alternatives in the future.
