Apple introduced the M1 chipset. It is marketed as Apple’s first Silicon chipset for the Mac.

It is reported that the new chipset will work with a unified memory architecture, an integrated GPU and its own neural engine.

“The first personal computer chip built using industry-leading 5nm technology,” Apple described the M1 chipset unveiled at the One More Thing.

The Apple M1 will be the first chipset in a line of processors that will power Apple’s personal computers and laptops over the next few years.

The M1 chip is powered by four high-performance cores, each of which Apple has dubbed “the world’s fastest.” The cores include a 128 KB data cache and a 12 MB shared L2 cache. They are also reported to work with ultra-wide execution architecture and 192 KB instruction cache.

There are also four highly efficient cores with a wide execution architecture and 128 KB instruction cache. The cores include 4 MB L2 cache and 64 KB data cache.

The chip supports the Secure Enclave technology known from the iPhone and iPad. This means that you can log into a device running on the Apple M1 using a password, fingerprint and face scan.
