Apple Announces Advanced ARM Processors
Apple has added new Pro and Max chips to its M1 processor list. These models are improved versions of last year's M1.

Apple Announces Advanced ARM Processors

The M1 processor, released last year, was intended to replace Intel chips in some of the Apple brand's products. So, the new chipset got the latest version of the MacBook Air and Pro 13 "laptops, the Mac Mini monoblock. Mainly Apple used its own chip for devices in the entry and middle segment. More productive models of devices focused on the execution of resource-intensive processes were equipped with solutions from Intel. New processors are designed to change this situation.

The M1 Pro and Max chips are based on the 5nm process technology, like its predecessor. At the same time, Apple guarantees significant performance gains. The Pro model will provide 70% more processing power and 2x the graphics performance over the M1. At the same time, the basic architecture remains the same, although the manufacturer has increased the hardware resources.

The M1 Pro has ten processing cores, of which eight are high performance and the rest are energy efficient. Sixteen cores will be responsible for the graphics, including 2048 execution units. The processor received support for RAM up to 32 GB, however, it is integrated, so it cannot be upgraded. The memory bandwidth is 200 GB / s. Compared to the standard M1 chip, the Pro version has increased in size due to the almost doubling of the number of transistors - 33.7 billion.

The M1 Max is by far the largest chip ever created by Apple. Compared to the Pro version, it has twice the amount of internal memory, a bandwidth of 400 GB / s, twice as many modules and cores in the graphics subsystem, which has a positive effect on performance. Thus, the processor allows you to connect up to four monitors to your computer.

In addition, Apple says the new chipsets deliver 1.7x more compute performance per watt over the standard M1 and unnamed 4- and 8-core solutions for other notebooks.
