The new M1 Macs are Now reaching customersAnd among the first people to get the new 13-inch MacBook Pro M1 with an octa-core CPU, octa-core GPU and 8GB unified memory, ran the much-anticipated R23 Cinebench Standard On the 13-inch 8GB MacBook Pro with 512GB storage to give us a better idea of ​​the performance.


Cinebench is a more intense multi-threaded test than Geekbench 5, which tests performance over a longer period of time, and can provide a clearer overview of how the machine will operate in the real world.

The M1 MacBook Pro has a multi-core Cinebench score of 7508 and a single-core score of 1498, which is similar in performance to some 11th-generation Intel chips.

By comparison, the 2020 16-inch MacBook Pro with a Core i9 chip at 2.3GHz received a multi-core score of 8818, according to Mac rumors reader Which measured its hardware with the new R23 update released last week. The low-end 16-inch MacBook Pro at 2.6GHz got a single-core score of 1113 and a multi-core score of 6912 in the same test and the previous generation high-end MacBook Air It got a single-core score of 1119 and a multi-core score of 4329.

Other Cinebench R23 results can be found on the CPU Monkey website for both Multi core And the Single core performance.


It’s worth noting that the new M1 Macs are low-performance devices and aren’t intended for strenuous display tasks. The M1 MacBook Pro replaces the low-end device, while the “MacBook Air” has always been more of a consumer device than the Pro.
