Before christmas PetaPixel Published a review of the M1 Macbook Pro, full of praise for this new computer, saying that it was “far ahead of anyone’s expectations.”The comment is not alone: In this 17.5-minute video, Linus Tech Tips found better performance.
Linus ran multiple tests and showed that the M1 Macbook Air and Pro performed very well, but also made sure to include Geekbench, because “this is what all cool kids are running.” The result? impressive.
He said: “The only CPU that hopes to match the M1’s multi-threaded performance is Ryzen 7, 8 cores.”
Specifically for creatives, M1 Macbook performed well in the competition of Adobe Creative Cloud. The following are the benchmark tests in Photoshop provided by Linus:
Compared with the Photoshop benchmark published in the PetaPixel review:
remember, PetaPixel Tested the M1 Macbook Pro and the Intel MacBook Pro with a price of more than $700 and twice the RAM. In addition, PetaPixel Use an older version of PugetBench, which includes a photo merge test, which can explain the difference between Linus results and audit results.
Linus reports: “Even running in Rosetta-this is non-native code-the M1 Macbook has managed to attract competitors.” “At least in class, the only possible response to M1 is in LuxMark. XPS 13’s XE Graphics core is in The whole aspect provides better numbers, while other performance drops by about half or even lower.”
Here are two other benchmarks:
Basically, in Linus’s test, the only computer consistently superior to M1 Macbooks is a thicker, more powerful dedicated gaming laptop.
The battery life is also impressive: 20 hours of continuous use, 8 hours more than the closest competitor. This extra eight hours is longer than the total lifespan of some laptops.
“We don’t think it will manage it in the real world,” Linus said. “This cannot be overstated: we see iPad-like durability on laptops running a full desktop operating system. In theory, you can Use it for a few days at a time without having to supplement it according to your own usage.”
Anyone who has questions about the performance or battery count of the Macbook Pro released here should be excited about this performance confirmation. By optimizing the settings, Linus managed to obtain more than 20 hours of battery life (PetaPixel When reviewing the Macbook Pro, it did not deliberately use optimized settings, and still maintained nearly 16 hours of battery life), its performance benchmarks are even more impressive than those announced by the MacBook Pro. PetaPixel comment.
Over the years, Apple has been easy due to over-promises and under-delivery, so one can expect to be skeptical about the performance of reviews. But after repeated reviews, the performance of the M1 Macbook Pro is incredible, and maybe it’s time to accept the reality: it does.
