Apple's first venture into the ARM-based "Silicon" all-in-one processor chip, also known as "M1," is now going up against famous graphics card manufacturers AMD and Nvidia in benchmark comparison tests. The company's M1 processor chips are showing off its superiority against Intel's processor "Core" chips and now aims to take the crown from gaming giants.

Apple M1 Benchmark Comparison

The world's most valuable technology company, Apple, is now receiving praises for its next-level Silicon "M1" processor chips which gives all the needs of its current line of computers. The new M1 chip aims to completely provide Apple's computers with a self-sufficient technology, including a top-priority for gaming, the Graphics Processing Unit, or GPU.

The Apple M1 Chip was recently announced over a week ago, on November 10, bringing forth a new breed of future Macs starting with the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and the Mac mini. Initial impressions were highly reluctant of the new processor that boasts to defeat industry giants including Intel, AMD, and Nvidia which thrived over the years. 

However, Apple changes this by showing off its performance against its MacBook predecessors that are running Intel's Core i9s with massive 16 GB RAMs. Apple M1s are fitted with its CPU processors and even its GPU, along with a relatively smaller 8 GB of RAM. 

The new Apple ARM-based Silicon compensates with the 5nm chip that takes on Moore's Law as its inspiration for the power it possesses. The impressive technology from Apple is leaving people to see for themselves, with different benchmark test reviews appearing.

Apple M1 vs. AMD and Nvidia: Who is the Most Superior GPU?

Tom's Hardware created a graphics benchmark test that pits both industry leaders, AMD and Nvidia, against Apple's M1 chip's all-in-one processor. The reviews made use of AMD and Nvidia's best with the Radeon RX 560 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti which is top-performing GPUs in the market fitted in gaming rigs.

The technology website made use of eight benchmark tests to determine who would reign over and take the crown as the "Best" in terms of GPU chips for both PC laptops and computers. The eight benchmark tests include:

  • ALU 2
  • Aztec Ruins Normal 
  • Aztec Ruins High Tier
  • Car Chase
  • Driver Overhead 2
  • 1440p Manhattan 3.1.1
  • Manhattan 3.1
  • Manhattan
  • Texturing
  • T-Rex

Apple's M1 wins by a landslide, defeating both AMD Radeon and Nvidia GeForce in the benchmark tests by a massive lot. The 1440p Manhattan 3.1.1 test alone sets Apple's M1 at 130.9 FPS, with Nvidia's GTX 1050 Ti only registers 127.4 FPS and AMD's Radeon with 101.4 FPS.

Apple's M1 Benchmark GPU: What are its Classifications?

Apple's Silicon chips have an eight-core GPU with 128 EUs, four Firestorm, and four Icystorm performance and efficiency cores, all packed into a single package of the unified ARM-based system-on-a-chip (SoC). This technology is remarkable as most components are separate from each other, having different locations for its process.

Notably, Apple registers up to 2.6 Teraflops which makes it equal against AMD Radeon's throughput. However, it trails behind the GeForce GTX 1650 with 2.9 TFLOPS. The GTX 1650 was not used in the comparison because it has no record of a metal run, while GTX 1050 Ti has one. 

Apple's M1 takes superiority in GPUs, exhibiting power, and prowess against the industry leaders that are currently providing competition in the market.
