Apple finally released a new M1 desktop processor based on arm. AnandTech benchmarked the previous A14 and found that M1 has surpassed Intel in some aspects. The performance data of A14 on this chart is quite incredible. If I hide the A14 tag while publishing this data, people will guess that these data points come from AMD or other x86 SKUs of Intel. In fact, A14 is now able to compete with the best performance designs of X86 manufacturers on the market, which is an amazing feat. < p > < p > let’s take a look at the detailed results. Again, to my surprise, A14 is not only able to keep up with it, but also outperforms its competitors on latency sensitive workloads such as 429.mcf and 471.omnetpp, even though they have the same memory (i7-1185g7, lpddr4x-4266) or desktop level memory (5950x, ddr-3200). < / P > < p > similarly, regardless of the 456.hmmer score advantage of A14, which is mainly due to compiler differences, minus 33%, the comparison data is more appropriate. < / P > < p > when A7 was released, people were very dismissive of Apple’s calling their microarchitecture desktop design. A few years ago, people were very dismissive of us saying that a11 and A12 have reached the performance data of desktop level, but today is an important moment for the industry, because Apple’s A14 has obviously been able to show the best performance that Intel can provide. This is a performance track that has been steadily implemented and improved over the years. < p > < p > in the past five years, Intel has successfully improved their best single threaded performance by about 28%, while Apple has successfully improved their design by 198%, which is 2.98 times of Apple’s A9 performance at the end of 2015 (we call it triple). < / P > < p > Apple’s performance trajectory and undoubted executive power over the years have made apple’s chips today. Anyone who looks at this picture will realize that Apple has no choice but to abandon Intel and x86 for its own micro architecture. If it continues to use Intel, it will mean stagnation and worse consumer products. < / P > < p > Apple has announced that they will completely transition the entire consumer product lineup to Apple silicon within two years, which shows that we will see a multi-core design with high TDP to drive the future Mac Pro. If the company can continue to maintain its current performance trajectory, it will be very impressive. Chinese version of K-car: reading a10e design drawing exposure
