  • Apple M1 Chip Is Here



    Apple's One More Thing event has released the details of their new laptop lineup that will include the new Apple M1 chip.  The new MacBook Air and 13 inch MacBook Pro will be launching on the 17th with these new chips and so far the benchmarks look fairly good.  The Mac Mini is also listed to receive a M1 chip upgrade, but the iMac and larger MacBooks are still mysteries. 

    We are still waiting to see some real world testing and real benchmarks as Apple's comparison to "the best selling Windows laptop" most likely means an i5 machine of some type.  Geekbench currently has the M1 chip slightly above the Intel i7 chip and if Apple's other performance goals (e.g. battery life and iGPU) are on par, then these chips will do very well in the ultra book market. **Although, we are not sure how reliable that Geekbench score is**

    The M1 chips are based off of the ARM chip set and there are some hurdles due to this move.  Adobe and many other products are not planning support until 2021, so you may want to hold off swapping out your main work laptop for a bit.  Overall we are very excited for these new chips as ARM based laptops have always been an exciting concept.
