Apple’s new M1 Max processor, introduced in recent weeks, has managed to surprise its competitors with its performance.
Apple,the world’s most valuable company, continues to expand its product family. Finally, the company began offering the new MacBook Proto customers around the world with 14-inch and 16-inch options. The highly anticipated computer will come with M1 Max and M1 Pro processors.
While many users are familiar with the performance of Apple Silicon chips,you will be surprised by the results of a quality test conducted by a famous software company. In this quality test, he compared the GPU of the M1 Maxwith the AMD Radeon Pro W6900X worth $66,000 ($6,000).
Incollaboration with AMD, Apple added the Radeon Pro R6000X to its Mac Pro models, and one of the most notable models was the Radeon Pro W6900X. The GPU,which is quite expensive, offers high computing performance in terms of graphics. This CPU has been compared to Apple’snew hardware, the M1 Max.
The quality tests were carried out by Andy Somerfield, chief developer of popular picture editor Affinity Photo. In his response to a Tweet, Somerfield describeshow the Affinity team has optimized its software to test Apple chips since the first version of Affinity Photofor iPad. It then details how far the performance of these chips has gone with the latest MacBook Pro.
Affinityis working on new methods, as a single comparison, of course, cannot determine the speed of a GPU. The software company developed its own tool to measure the performance of tasks related to its applications, such as Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer. So they hope they can get more detailed results.
As an example, the developer explains that Affinity Photoworks best with the GPU, which has fast chip bandwidth and high computing performance and fast transfer that turns itself on and off. Before that, the fastest GPUthe team tested in the benchmark vehicle was the expensive AMD Radeon Pro W6900X, which Appleproduced as an MPX module for mac pro.
Test results are baffling
This module has 32GB of GDDR6 memory, providing up to 512GB/sof memory bandwidth. Despite all these features, Apple’s 32-core M1 Max GPUand memory with 400GB/s combined bandwidth performed better. In the “Raster (Single GPU)” test, the M1 Max GPUscored 32891, while AMD’s GPUwas just behind with a quality score of 32580.
Of course, these results do not mean that the M1 Max GPUwill perform better in all areas, as the developer noted. But it shows the quality of Apple chips and that they can be better than a special high-end GPUfor image editing. Both the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Prowill be available in stores starting today.
