Before the introduction of the first Mac “Apple Silicon”, Apple handed over the chip cut for computers to Apple in detail. This is how Johny Srouji personally unveiled his M1 chip, the official and final name of Apple Silicon. The monster, engraved in 5 nm, has 8 CPU cores and 8 GPU cores for 16 billion transistors. 4 CPU cores are intended for pure performance, 4 more for tasks that require less (but often more constant) consumption.
Unsurprisingly, Apple is announcing performance records per watt, 75% less consumption than competing processors … for twice the performance. The same goes for the GPU, which peaks at 2.7 teraflops (that’s more than a PS4 or Xbox One) and whose consumption is always limited for such a commotion. The M1 also includes a neural engine for AI calculations, its own secure enclave and a unified memory architecture. Strong the presentation of the Mac under the M1 processor!
