The GPU performance of the M1 Max chip may be higher than that of the PlayStation 5

Apple is widely publicizing the performance of its new M1 Pro and M1 Max chips. On paper, the GPU performance of the highest-end M1 Max chip is actually higher than that of Sony’s PlayStation 5. The M1 Max chip can be configured to include up to 32-core GPU, which is a huge leap from the 8-core GPU provided by the M1 chip. Apple says that the power consumption of the M1 Max chip at peak graphics performance is 70% lower than that of PC notebooks equipped with discrete graphics cards.

Apple also claims that the “performance” of the M1 Max chip is similar to “professional notebook computers equipped with a high-performance discrete GPU”, while power consumption has been reduced by 100 watts.


To confirm this statement, Notebookcheck tested a 16-inch MacBook Pro equipped with an M1 Max chip. Compared with MSI’s GE76 Raider and RAZER Blade 15 Advanced, it provides a 10-core CPU, a 32-core GPU and 64GB of memory. In order to further subdivide GPU performance, according to Apple’s information on the new chip, it is estimated how many megabits the new M1 Pro and M1 Max chips can handle. These are their findings:

M1 8 cores = 2.6 TF

M1 Pro 14 cores = 4.5 TF

M1 Pro 16 core = 5.2TF

M1 Max 24 cores = 7.8 TF

M1 Max 32 cores = 10.4 TF

On paper, the largest 32-core GPU of the M1 Max chip can handle more graphics than Sony’s PlayStation 5, which has a maximum of 10.28 teraflops. Notebookcheck figures are based on estimates, not real-world tests. The price of the new MacBook Pro is much higher than that of the PlayStation 5, but despite this, Apple’s ability to demand a portable notebook computer comparable to high-end game consoles is impressive.
