Macs with Apple M1 chip begin arriving to customers

Apple during their ‘One More Thing’ event last week announced the first Macs with Apple Silicon inside. These new Macs include a new MacBook Air, a 13-inch MacBook Pro and a silver Mac mini. These now feature Apple’s in-house 8-core M1 SoC. Apple claims a battery life of upto 20 hours with the MacBook Pro. Alongside this, they also claim that new M1 MacBook Air is now faster than 98% of PC laptops sold in the last year. Early adopters of Apple Silicon have put these claims to the test with new benchmarks emerging as users get their hands on these devices.

New devices include a lower tier two Thunderbolt/USB 4 ports MacBook Pro variant. Users can also get the more costlier Intel based variant with four Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports. 13-inch MacBook Pro now comes in a new packaging, similar to the 16-inch variant. MacBook Air has been refreshed with the M1 to now run completely silent, dropping the internal fan. MacBook Air will now rely exclusively on passive cooling to cool the 8-core M1 processor. 

New benchmarks on Geekbench’s official browser had emerged, with new benchmarks being added everyday. Premature Geekbench benchmarks shows the MacBook Air outperforming Intel Core i9-9980HK 16-inch MacBook Pro in synthetic multi and single core results. 

Popular YouTuber Luke Miani’s Twitter replies shows a Cinebench R23 result, outperforming the latest Intel 11th Gen i7-1165G7 which has 4 cores and 8 threads.
