MacRumors reports some early
performance scores of Apple's M1 SoC have been spotted in the database of the Geekbench benchmark. Interestingly, the M1 chip in the MacBook Air significantly outperforms other Mac devices that are based on Intel processors, at least in the single-core performance tests. The M1 chip also does really well in multi-threaded performance.
In comparison to Macs, the single-core performance is better than any other available Mac, and the multi-core performance beats out all of the 2019 16-inch MacBook Pro models, including the 10th-generation high-end 2.4GHz Intel Core i9 model. That high-end 16-inch MacBook Pro earned a single-core score of 1096 and a multi-core score of 6870.
Secondly, there's also a score of the 13" MacBook Pro:
There's also a benchmark for the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 chip and 16GB RAM that has a single-core score of 1714 and a multi-core score of 6802. Like the ?MacBook Air?, it has a 3.2GHz base frequency.
We're still very curious for more benchmarks, but so far the results look extremely promising.
