M1 Max chip might beat PlayStation 5 graphics

Cult of Mac Today
Apple’s home-grown silicon continues to surprise. The new M1 Max chip – with 32 graphics cores – may rival Sony’s brand-new game console in terms of graphics performance. And that’s without a dedicated graphics card, of course.
Apple’s new chips are so powerful, they’re already leaving Intel and AMD in the dust. And now Apple is gunning for Nvidia, too.
Just wait until the next iteration of Apple Silicon, which is destined for the upcoming Mac Pro and iMac. It’s rumored to come in two configurations, with up to 4X the number of CPU and GPU cores as the M1 Max. That’s 40 CPU cores and 128 GPU cores!
If I were Jensen Huang, Nvidia’s CEO, I’d be quaking in my boots.

A new Mac chip will have twice as many transistors as all the CPUs in all the Macs Apple shipped in 1984.
One more thing ...
“I don’t think it’s good that Apple’s perceived as different. I think it’s important that Apple’s perceived as ‘much better.’ If being different is essential to doing that, then we have to do that, but if we can be much better without being different, that’d be fine with me. I want to be much better.” – Steve Jobs
