Ever since Apple introduced its new M1 SoC, it has constantly impressed us as we learn more about it. This trend continues today, as the M1 has been tested using the GFXBench 5.0 benchmarking tool. The results, while nothing inspiring, are definitely impressive.
The benchmarks were used using Apple’s Metal API, and they revealed that the chip outperformed both the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and the AMD Radeon RX 560. It wasn’t close competition either; Apple’s M1 performed significantly better in almost all the tests the benchmark went through. You can see the results below (via Tom Hardware).
The graphic design of the M1
Another important aspect of this test that should be noted is that the GTX 1050 Ti and RX 560 are also older graphics cards; both are about three years old at this stage. But still, they’re both special 75W desktop graphics cards, and the fact that the M1’s integrated graphics can outperform them is still an impressive feat.
Apple’s new M1 chip is available in the 13-inch MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and Mac mini. All are available for purchase now.
