Apple MacBook Pro 13 (M1) Overview:

M1 for Mac

The notable difference between 2020’s MacBook pro is the SoC it’s baked with. This year’s model introduced Apple’s M1 Silicon which is the company’s most powerful chip and the first one to be designed specifically for Mac. It is also the first mobile chip to be built using the 5nm process node. Apple has been able to fit 16 billion transistors in the chipset.

It is an octa-core processor with four high-performance and four high-efficiency cores. Apple claims that it offers the world’s best CPU performance per watt. The eight-core GPU can also execute 25,000 threads at the same time. As a result, Apple claims that it has the world’s fastest integrated graphics. The Neural Engine has 16 cores and is capable of doing 11 trillion operations per second. It provides up to 15x quicker machine learning performance with ML Accelerators.

Apple has also optimized the macOS Big Sur to make the most out of the new chip. Most of Apple’s Mac Software is now universal and the rest can run on the M1 chip using Apple’s Rosetta 2 technology. Similarly, it can also run iPhone and iPad apps directly on a Mac.

Performance Leap

Powered by the new M1 silicon, Apple is claiming the new 13-inch MacBook Pro to be 3x faster than the best-selling Windows laptop. It is also claimed to be the world’s fastest compact pro notebook. The new 13-inch MacBook Pro is now 2.8x times faster than its predecessor and offers up to 5x better graphics.
