Apple Silicon M1 Powered MacBook Air Outperforms High-End 16-Inch MacBook Pro

Apple launched yesterday the first MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and Mac mini with its Apple Silicon chips and the first chip benchmark appears today on the Geekbench website.

A single-core score of 1687, a multi-core score of 7433 is included in the M1 Chip belonging to a new MacBook Air substitute with 8 GB of RAM. Based on the benchmark, the M1 has a 3.2GHz base frequency.

Compared to existing devices, all iOS devices are outperformed by the M1 chip in some MacBook Air. The iPhone 12 Pro achieved a single-core score of 1584, and a multi-core score of 3898, while Geekbench ‘s highest iOS device, the A14 iPad Air, achieved a single-core score of 1585 and a 4 647.

Compared to Macs, single-core performance is better than any other Mac available, and multi-core performance beats all of the 2019 16-inch MacBook Pro models, including the Intel Core i9 10th-generation high-end 2.4GHz model. That high-end 16-inch MacBook Pro got 1096 single-score and 6870 multi-score.

Although the M1 chip is more powerful than the 16-inch MacBook Pro model in terms of raw CPU standards, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is probably more efficient in another field, such as the GPU.

It should be noted that the MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air Air may vary in performance, even if they have the same M1 chip because the −after MacBook Air has a fan-less design and MacBook Pro is equipped with a new cooling system designed by Apple. There is also a Mac mini benchmark, though, and it has about the same results.

A single-core score of 1682 and a multi-core score of 7067 was earned by the benchmarked M1 chip.
