The Apple M1 is an 8-core mobile processor of Apple, which Apple has developed on the basis of the ARM technology itself. He uses a hybrid big.Little CPU design, combining 4 so-called efficiency cores (ICESTORM) with 4 performance cores (Firestorm). The processor is not only very economical, but also very powerful at the same time. The Apple M1 is manufactured in a very modern 5 Nm procedure for the contract-ready TSMC in Taiwan.

With a clock frequency of Apple M1, the processor clocks relatively low, but this is also due to the ARM technology. AMD and Intel use the X86-64 command set to another technology.

Intel's Core i7-1185G7 has 4 real CPU cores that can thanks to hyper-threading up to 8 threads at the same time. The base frequency of the processor is 3.0 GHz. Via the turbo mode, the mobile processor can lift its clock frequency to up to 4.8 GHz (load on a CPU core) or up to 4.3 GHz (load on all CPU cores) to increase its performance temporarily. The length of turbo use depends on cooling and energy requirements of the processor.

The Intel Core i7-1185G7 has a great advantage in the equipment of the memory. It can connect up to 64 GB DDR4-3200 or LPDDR4x-4266 memory while the Apple M1 supports a maximum of 16 GB of memory.

Both mobile processors have an internal graphic unit, Apple's M1 (8 core GPU) comes to a considerable computing power of 2.6 tflops. This is a very good value for an internal graphic. But also the Intel Iris XE Graphics 96 (Tiger Lake G7) @ 1.3 GHz of the Intel Core i7-1185G7 white with a capacity of just under 2.1 tflops to convince. Intel had presented the Intel XE graphic architecture for the first time in 2020. It is intended to replace the graphic architecture (Intel UHD), which came to the years. That was urgently needed as AMD had long been passed by Intel.
