Blender 3.1 Benchmark

In the Blender Benchmark 3.1, the scenes "monster", "junkshop" and "classroom" are rendered and the time required by the system is measured. In our benchmark we test the CPU and not the graphics card. Blender 3.1 was presented as a standalone version in March 2022.

News and articles for the Apple M1 Pro (10-CPU 16-GPU)


The Apple M1X is the second Apple processor for notebooks and desktop PCs. In contrast to the Apple M1, the manufacturer relies on 10 "Firestorm" cores that provide very fast computing power. The 2 "Icestorm" cores of the Apple M1 are also found in the big brother. The "Icestorm" CPU cores are responsible for the processors high efficiency and mainly take care of background tasks. The efficiency cores support the performance cores during high computing loads.

The Apple M1X has a clock frequency of 3.2 GHz in the base. The processor does not have a turbo mode, but it can reduce its clock frequency significantly internally. Modern AMD or Intel processors, for example, do this.

Like the Apple M1, the Apple M1X is also based on ARM-64 technology, but was designed by Apple itself. It has a very high computing power, which does not have to hide from modern processors from other manufacturers. The processor is manufactured in 5 nm at TSMC and is one of the most efficient processors on the market. Due to its high efficiency, its heat development is also relatively low. Therefore, the processor can keep its computing power stable even in longer load phases. However, this requires an active fan.

Apple also relies on its own creation for the iGPU (internal graphics). The Apple M1X 16 core graphics achieves 5.2 TFLOPS in FP32 calculations (single precision). This makes it slightly faster than an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 ti (4.7 TFLOPS) and slightly slower than an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (6.5 TFLOPS).

The Apple M1X supports up to 64 GB of LPDDR4X memory and PCIe 4.0, and up to 2 external displays can be connected to the system via USB-C or HDMI (plus 1 internal display).
