New MacBook Pro chips deliver desktop performance with better power efficiency


Recommended Posts


The M1 Pro is a 10-core chip that features increased memory bandwidth and interfaces, and AnandTech notes that it's been designed from the ground up to feature more performance for professional users. The M1 Max is "essentially identical," except for the massive 32-core GPU.


AnandTech highlighted the "huge memory bandwidth" of the new chips, as also pointed out the fact that both chips are well ahead of the competition in terms of power draw and efficiency.


As far as CPU performance, AnandTech notes that Apple hasn't talked much about increased CPU performance, which is likely because not much has changed from the M1. Despite that, the M1 Max still lands as the top-performing laptop chips in AnandTech's ranking. It ranked below the AMD Risen 5950X as far as best overall CPU, but by a close margin.
