With the Apple M1 processor, Apple can compete in the notebook segment directly with the strong AMD Ryzen 4xxx mobile processors. Apple's first Mac processor even expects innering applications much faster, which can use multiple cores in all applications, there is a tender.

While the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U is an X86-64 processor, as is the processors of Intel, Apple with an ARM processor sets a standardization of technologies to offer apps simultaneously for its smartphones, tablets and Macs from a single source. ARM processors are very efficient due to the hybrid construction, but can lead to a similar or slightly better performance than conventional X86-64 processors by connecting large performance cores.

For Apple M1, Apple sets a 16 MB cache, and the up to 16 GB LPDDR4X / LPDDR5 stores in a common package with the processor and the IGPU, so that it can access the memory with a very high bandwidth. The IGPU shares the main memory with the CPU and uses a part of the memory as a graphics memory.

Both processors are manufactured in modern manufacturing techniques (Apple 5 Nm, AMD 7 Nm). Recent Intel processors are manufactured at 10 Nm, with Intel currently producing its processors themselves, while Apple and AMD can make their processors produce in the Taiwanese contract manufacturer TSMC and are only responsible for the design of the processors.

The IGPU of the Apple M1 is the most fastest IGPU with 2.6 TFLOPs, but the AMD Radeon 8 Graphics (Renoir) of the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U is anything but slow and is also suitable for the one or her 1.8 tflops. Other game. Modern dedicated graphics cards from NVIDIA or AMD can be up to 40 tflops quickly, which of course is again a huge difference to the IGPUs.
