Some early benchmarks of the new MacBook Pros show impressive performance gains.
The new M1 Max chip, for example, is by far the most powerful processor Apple has ever put into a laptop. It’s performance is roughly on par with the workstation-grade chips found in recent Mac Pros and iMacs, which is unheard of for a notebook.
And graphics performance looks even better. The new chip is almost 200% faster than the previous-gen 16-inch MacBook Pro with a discreet Radeon GPU.
Apple’s only been in the chips game for a year, and already it’s blowing everything out of the water. Just imagine what’s to come.
