M1, the most powerful chip it has ever produced and the first chip specifically built for the Mac, was revealed by Apple today. For Mac systems in which small size and power efficiency are critically essential, M1 is optimized.
M1 features a simplified memory architecture for significantly enhanced performance and efficiency and incorporates various powerful technologies into a single chip. M1 is the very first personal computer chip to be designed using state-of-the-art 5-nanometer process technology and has a whopping 16 billion transistors.
M1 features the world’s fastest low-power silicon Processor core, the world’s best per watt CPU efficiency, the fastest integrated graphics on a personal computer, and the Apple Neural Engine ‘s revolutionary machine learning performance. As a consequence, M1 delivers up to 3.5x faster CPU processing, up to 6x faster GPU performance, and up to 15x faster machine learning, all while allowing up to 2x longer battery life than Macs of the previous generation. M1 provides the greatest leap ever for the Mac with its profound improvement in output and productivity.
