Performance Test For MacBook Air And Apple M1 Processors

During the event, the performance test of the MacBook Air with M1 processor, which was constantly praised by Apple, was revealed. Apple’s first MacBook Air model, powered by an ARM-based M1 processor, succeeded in surpassing Intel-powered MacBooks in GeekBench. The device outperforms even iMacs in single core performance.

Compared to previous generation devices, the new Mac models are powered by the Apple M1 processor, not the Intel processor, which causes even more curiosity about their performance. Now, the first GeekBench test results of the new MacBook Air have emerged. And according to the shared information, we can say that there are very good news for those who are considering buying a MacBook Air with M1 processor.

According to GeekBench test results, the new generation MacBook Air scored 1,687 points in single core and 7,433 points in multi-core. The fundamental frequency of the M1 processor in the device was measured as 3.2 GHz. The new generation MacBook Air, which can run iOS and iPadOS applications thanks to the M1 processor, surpasses all iPhone and iPad devices in this class. What’s more, it surpassed all Mac models including the 27-inch iMac with a 3.6 GHz Intel Core i9 10910 processor on a single core.

The same success does not appear in multi-core performance, but surpasses the 16-inch MacBook Pro with a 2.4 GHz Intel Core i9 9980HK processor.

Meanwhile, the new MacBook Pro and Mac Mini, powered by the same M1 processor, also scored close to the MacBook Air in Geekbench. With the M1 processor, the new MacBook Pro scored 1.714 points in a single core and 6.802 points in a multi-core; the new Mac Mini managed to score 1,682 points in a single core and 7,067 points in a multi-core.
