When Apple officially released its first self talk architecture desktop / notebook processor M1, there was a view that it was actually an enlarged version of A14, with similar architecture and made by TSMC’s 5nm process. Today, the semiconductor analysis organization techinsights released the core design comparison diagram of M1 and A14, which clearly shows the differences between them. < / P > < p > first of all, in the CPU part, M1 integrates four firestorm high-performance cores and four icestrom high-efficiency cores, a total of eight; A14 integrates two firestorm high-performance cores and four icestrom high-efficiency cores, a total of six. < / P > < p > the L2 cache of each core is the same, so the L2 cache of M1 large core is twice that of A14, while the L2 cache of M1 small core is the same, but the system cache of M1 is 25% smaller.
