Blender 2.81 (bmw27)

Blender is a free 3D graphics software for rendering (creating) 3D bodies, which can also be textured and animated in the software. The Blender benchmark creates predefined scenes and measures the time (s) required for the entire scene. The shorter the time required, the better. We selected bmw27 as the benchmark scene.

The Apple M1 is the first self-developed processor from Apple that is installed in both the 2020 MacBook Pro 13 "and MacBook Airs, as well as the 2020 Mac Mini. The Intel Core i7-10875H, on the other hand, comes in many high-quality notebooks from Lenovo, over gigabytes up to a few Razer Blade models are used.

Both processors have 8 cores, whereby a hybrid architecture (big.LITTLE) is used in the Apple M1. The 8 cores are therefore divided into 4 cores with very high performance and 4 cores with good efficiency. This has the advantage that the power consumption is very low if the processor is not used too much. The MacBook Pro 13 "2020 has a battery life of up to 20 hours. The Intel Core i7-10875H has 8 identical cores that have a standard clock frequency of 2.30 gigahertz. In turbo mode, the clock frequency can increase to 5.10 gigahertz In addition, the Intel processor also supports hyperthreading technology, which the Apple CPU cannot do.

The showpiece of the Apple M1 is the integrated graphics unit, which puts the iGPU of the Intel Core i7-10875H in the shade. The FP32 computing power with single accuracy gives an idea of ​​how much more powerful Apple's iGPU is. This is the Apple M1 2600 GigaFLOPS, whereas the Intel UHD Graphics from the Intel Core i7-10875H only achieves 461 GigaFLOPS.

The Apple M1, released in the fourth quarter of 2020, is manufactured using the 5 nanometer process and has a TDP of only 15 watts. The Intel Core i7-10875H was released in the second quarter of 2020 and is still manufactured using the 14 nanometer process. Furthermore, the TDP of 45 watts is three times as high as the Apple M1, which means that the Intel processor will also have a significantly higher power consumption.
