Users share test results for MacBook laptops based on Apple M1



Only a week has passed since the presentation of the Apple M1 chipset and computers based on it. Some users who have already received the new Mac and MacBook have started testing them. They shared the results with the online community.

Mostly, people are testing MacBook Air and MacBook Pro laptops with M1 processor. The software used is the same, but the configuration of the devices is different.

Very fast rendering in Final Cut Pro

Youtube author Tally Ho Tech benchmarked a 13-inch ARM-based MacBook Pro versus a 16-inch MacBook Pro using Final Cut Pro X.

He ran a render of a 45-minute film in 6K resolution.

The MacBook Pro with the Apple M1 coped with the task easily, while its competitor didn’t even halfway render.

Although the author of the video did not reveal which model of the 16-inch MacBook Pro was used in the test, it is safe to say that this is a decent result.

Cheapest MacBook Air tested on Geekbench

The Unbox Italia channel has published a video testing the basic version of the MacBook Air with the Apple M1 chipset and 8GB of RAM.

You may have seen the test results before: in the single-core test the laptop scored 1,745 points, in the multi-core test – 7,687.

Decent Cinebench Results

Technoblogger Durianrider used the Cinebench application in his tests. He ran it on MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models with identical configurations, an Apple M1 processor and 16GB of RAM.

Everyone knows that the application is very heavy on the hardware. But unlike other laptops, the above models didn’t get hot.

The MacBook Pro scored 7,783 points in the multi-core test, a thousand points more than the 2019 27-inch iMac with the Intel Core i7-7700K chipset.

The MacBook Air scored 7,032 points in the multi-core test and 1,493 points in the single-core test.
