    CPU Benchmark and Review: Apple M1

    The Apple M1 launched in late 2020 is an 8 core processor from Apple and can be found in MacBook Air, MacBook Pro 13, Mac Mini, and iMac 24. The 8 core SoC has four performance cores and four power-efficiency cores. The performance cores here have 192 KB instruction cache, 128 KB data cache, and 12 MB shared Level 2 cache. The efficiency cores on the other hand have 128 KB instruction cache, 64 KB data cache, and 4 MB shared cache. The efficiency cores have a base clock of 600 MHz and can be boosted up to 2064 MHz while the performance cores on the other hand have a base clock of 600 MHz and a boost clock of 3204 MHz.

    Apple M1 has 2 different variants of Integrated graphics for the entry-level MacBook Air that comes with Apple M1 7-Core GPU and MacBook Pro 13, Mac Mini, and iMac 24 comes with M1 8-Core GPU. The Apple M1 TDP can vary from the passive cooled 10 Watt variant for the MacBook Air all the to mac mini with a max TDP of 39 Watts. Therefore the performance of the chip therefore greatly depends on the thermal performance of the system. The chip also features a fast integrated neural engine with 16 cores, a secure enclave for encryption, unified memory architecture, Thunderbolt / USB 4 controller, an ISP, and media de- and encoders.
