Equipped with its strongest M1 chip, the lowest price is 5299 yuan. Apple’s three new Mac products have been sold. So the question is: buy or not? This is indeed a problem worthy of entanglement. On the one hand, M1 looks excellent, and it can be called a revolutionary change in the history of MAC development; on the other hand, there is uncertainty about the hardware and software experience of the new Mac based on M1 chip.
after all, novel coronavirus pneumonia was rampant in 2020, and Mac had a positive situation. Apple also had reasons to maintain confidence in the performance of M1 chips. < / P > < p > in fact, just a few days ago, a few days ago, the CPU performance data of the latest three MAC devices appeared on geekbench 5, which is really eye-catching. < / P > < p > in general, due to the same M1 processor, the running points of MacBook Air and macbook pro show certain similarity; however, compared with MacBook Air, macbook pro adds cooling fan, and its performance in long-term use will be better. < / P > < p > data shows that the 16 inch version of MacBook Pro equipped with Intel i9-9880h processor has two single core scores of 1041 and 1215, and multi-core scores of 6464 and 6812 respectively. The performance of both single core and multi-core is not as good as the new MAC device equipped with M1, and the performance of single core is particularly different. < / P > < p > according to this score, the image processing performance of the M1 has reached the level of the 16 inch macbook pro’s basic model. < / P > < p > here’s another thing to note: Although the M1 chip is also available, the basic new MacBook Air castrates the GPU – from 8 cores to 7 cores. Even Greg joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of marketing, said in an interview that he couldn’t believe the Mac would make such a big progress. < p > < p > of course, as Apple’s latest and strongest chip, M1 also has one biggest advantage: it can support new Mac devices to run apps on IOS and ipados – which will greatly enrich the application ecology of MAC and enhance the synergy between it and devices such as iPad and iPhone. < / P > < p > according to the data released by IDC last month, in the third quarter of 2020, the global traditional PC market (including desktop computers, laptops and workstations) will reach 81.2722 million units, an increase of 14.6% year-on-year. < / P > < p > in some cases, consumer and institutional demand for traditional PCs is close to record levels. Games, chromebooks and, in some cases, mobile enabled laptops were all the highlights of the quarter. Had the market not been hampered by a shortage of spare parts, laptop shipments would have soared to a higher level in the third quarter – as demand has yet to be met. In the third quarter, apple shipped 6.89 million Macs, up 38.9 percent from 4.959 million in the same period last year, though ranked fourth, with the largest increase among the top five (Lenovo, HP, Dell, apple and Acer), according to IDC. < / P > < p > it is worth mentioning that for apple, not only the MAC business has performed well, but its iPad tablet business is also facing significant opportunities in the epidemic. According to the latest data released by canalys recently, in the third quarter of 2020, in the ranking of World PC market (including tablet computers), Apple’s year-on-year growth rate is as high as 40.9%, and its share is as high as 17.7%, ranking second in the world. < / P > < p > it should be noted that in this ranking of canalys, in addition to desktop computers and laptops, it also includes tablet computers – for apple, it is the combination of MAC and iPad. < p > < p > according to this statistical rule, apple shipped 22.075 million pcs, more than 3 million pcs higher than HP, which ranked third, and 1.4 million pcs lower than Lenovo. < / P > < p > interestingly, in this statistic, canalys also lists tablet data separately. According to the data, Apple’s iPad ranked first with 1523.3 iPads, with a year-on-year growth rate of 47%. On this data performance, canalys analyst Victoria Li said: < / P > < p > tablets have come back from the dead, because at this critical moment, tablets achieve a perfect balance between mobility and computing power at various price points. For first-time PC users, tablets are a natural choice because they want to use simple, affordable products. < / P > < p > in general, in canalys’ perception, tablet computers have also been regarded as personal computing devices – the epidemic has increased the demand for personal computing devices, while the low threshold (whether it is price or experience) of tablets makes them more popular. < / P > < p > as Apple’s most powerful chip so far, M1’s strength is not only the hardware technology, but also reflected in the transformation of software ecology; it also indicates a technical direction of the whole computer industry, that is, personal computer devices may eventually move towards some ecological integration with mobile devices, and thus radiate new vitality. However, M1 is the initial product of Mac’s future development. Moreover, Apple needs more efforts to improve the migration and compatibility of IOS and iPad OS application ecology. For ordinary consumers, it may take some time to witness its actual use experience. Spontaneous combustion at a Guangzhou Motor vehicle intersection and other traffic lights in Shenzhen
