Description of the processor

The Apple M1 Pro (with 10 CPU cores and 14 GPU cores) is an enlarged version of the regular Apple M1 processor with more CPU and GPU cores for even more computing power. Apple introduced the Apple M1 Pro and Apple M1 Max processors for the professional MacBook series. Apple also uses the processors in the more professional mac mini and mac Studio series.

The Apple M1 Pro (with 10 CPU cores and 14 GPU cores) has a total of 10 CPU cores, which are made up of 8 large P-cores (Apple Firestorm) and two smaller E-cores (Apple Icestorm). As with its other A and M processors, Apple also uses a hybrid core design for the CPU cores. The larger P-cores provide the largest share of the overall performance, with the E-cores being considered very economical and used for background tasks. But they can also be used together with the P-cores.

The clock frequency of the M1 Pro is very low at 0.6 GHz and is typical for modern ARM processors. The Apple M1 Pro can dynamically increase the clock frequency of the P-cores up to 3.2 GHz, while the E-cores can operate at a maximum of 2.06 GHz.

In addition to the normal CPU cores, the Apple M1 Pro (with 10 CPU cores and 14 GPU cores) has the Apple Neural Engine, which has an AI computing power of 11 TOPS and greatly accelerates calculations in image and video processing can.

The integrated graphics of the Apple M1 Pro (with 10 CPU cores and 14 GPU cores) has 224 execution units and almost 1800 shaders. The FP32 computing power of the graphics is at a very good level at 4.58 TFLOPS and is currently only beaten by the larger expansion levels from Apple itself when it comes to iGPUs. Theoretically, the graphics would be fast enough for some computer games, but game support on Apples macOS operating system is still very limited.
