The MacBook Air is spotted on Geekbench with the new M1 processor and it outperforms the 16-inch MacBook Pro with the Intel Core i9 processor. Apple recently refreshed its Mac Mini, MacBook Pro 13-inch and MacBook Air with its in-house M1 processor, while the company had previously announced replacing the Intel processor. Now, with the new M1 chip the MacBook Air has made its way to Geekbench and is outperforming all other CPUs, at least in single-core scores.
Geekbench Listing It comes with the name ‘MacBook Air 10,1’ and has an ‘Apple Silicon’ processor. The laptop has 8GB of RAM and runs on macOS 11.0.1. It posted a single-core score of 1,687 and a multi-core score of 7,433. The listing also reveals a base frequency of 3.2GHz, which is significantly higher than the base clock speed of the 2.3GHz Intel Core i9-9880H processor found in the 16-inch MacBook Pro.
Looking at the processor Leaderboard On Geekbench, the eight-core M1 processor greatly outperforms the single core score processor in a single-score benchmark. The top-performing processor on the leaderboard is the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X with 16 cores and has a single-core score of 1,628 – much lower than Apple’s M1. Next to it is the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X with eight cores and a single-core score of 1,625. Interestingly, the MacBook Air is also comfortable with the M1 processor. Beat the top of the line 16-inch MacBook Pro with Intel-Core i9-9880H processor, both in terms of single-core (1,029) and multi-core (6.012) scores.
This already significant lead in performance is even more amazing when you consider that the MacBook Air is fanless, meaning there is no active cooling unlike the 16-inch MacBook Pro. All heat generated by the processor and other components in the M1-powered MacBook Air is passively cooled. It should also be noted that the base MacBook Air model with 8GB of RAM outperforms the top-end model of the 16-inch MacBook Pro.
The same processor is also present in the refreshed 13-inch MacBook Pro that has a fan, and can offer even better performance than the MacBook Air, especially in terms of longer continuous load operation. It’s safe to say Apple With its new M1 processor it has been able to achieve something very impressive and new laptops can easily outperform the previous generation offerings at the same price.
