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.
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.
Apple has plans for high-end Pro hardware with Apple silicone The chips, but the company said it would take about two years to convert the entire Mac array into Arm-based chips. Cinebench results for “MacBook Air” bode well for future Macs that are expected to have higher performance M-series chipsets.
