Apple has revealed yet another highlight from this year. They recently hosted a ‘One More Thing’ event where there were a number of products. The most notable product to come out of the event, however, was the new Apple M1 chip!

So, what exactly is the M1 chip?

It is also known as Apple Silicon and the company intends to integrate it into all the macOS products. This also means that the new MacBooks and Mac computers will incorporate the latest technology. The M1 chip is being called one of the most powerful processors to have ever been made. Let us take a look at everything you need to know about this processor!

Apple’s Robustness:

Before this reveal, it was a known fact that Apple products used Intel Processors in them. Now with Apple Silicon coming out, it means that Apple will be using its own built processors in the MacBooks. If you intend to buy a MacBook, you will have the option to go for the M1 variant. This is available in the MacBook Pro, Air, and Mini.

The usage of the M1 chip makes it significantly better for Mac products to communicate with macOS. As of November 11th, the Big Sur is to be open to the market. Apple, with the M1 chip, now has more control over the performance and efficiency of the macOS!

The M1 Chip:

Using Apple Silicon in Mac also means that the iPhone and iPad applications can now run on Macs. This saves a lot of hassle that older MacBooks and Mac computers used to face. The M1 Chip has about 16 Billion Transistors in it, and Apple says it’s specifically designed for Mac systems.

The usage of this Chip in MacBook Pro and Air have given better battery performances. Now that’s a first for Apple, is it not? A good battery! At the heart of the chip is an 8 – Core CPU with 4 of high performance and four high efficiencies. The high-performance ones provide immensely high performance for single-threaded tasks.

Apple also mentioned that the high-efficiency cores do work while consuming only a tenth of the power. These cores are, allegedly, so powerful, they rival the Intel Dual-core performance of MacBook Air!

Apple’s Place In The World:

The M1 Chip also features an 8 – Core GPU built inside it too. This makes the M1 Chip able to handle difficult tasks with absolute ease. They claim that the M1 has the world’s fastest integrated graphics on a personal computer.

This new product has put Apple quite forward in the Mac game. Where Intel cores were being used, Apple Silicon has now entered the arena!

Neural Engine:

Apple also mentions the presence of a Neural Engine inside the M1 Chip. This Neural Engine features a 16 – Core design that can perform 11 trillion operations per second. Think of this as something designed for Machine Learning tasks!
