Apple unveils new processors M1 Pro a M1 Max It boasted of its phenomenal performance and efficiency, which, according to the company’s measurements, included the best M1 Max on the virtual base of the most powerful mobile processors on the market. However, he managed to remove it from the Intel table with the Core i9-12900HK processor, which in benchmarks achieved a score higher than even the most powerful ARM processor from Apple. WCCFTech.
This year, Apple really managed to surprise, at least in the field of mobile processors, introducing improved versions of its CPU, which will be present in the latest MacBook Pro. The company did not hide its enthusiasm during the presentation, which has traditionally not been lacking in efficient graphs that compare the performance and efficiency of processors with other chips.
With the new i9, Intel crushed even the most powerful M1 Max
But as it turns out, Intel has managed to beat it. So at least in terms of raw performance in the benchmark, Apple has been showing great results for a long time. The new Intel Core i9-12900HK processor scored up to 1,851 points in the Geekbench test on a single core, putting it on top and even ahead of the new M1 Max chip.
There is a difference in architecture, and Intel cannot match Cupertino’s innovation in energy efficiency, but in terms of performance it has managed to surpass it, even in multi-core tests, with a score of 13,256 points. However, the Core i9-12900HK model also surpassed the flagship and competing Core i9-11980HK, AMD Ryzen 5980HX in its performance.
For comparison, Apple’s new M1 Max chip scored 1,785 points in the single-core Geekbench test and 12,753 points in the multi-core test. Intel was on the verge of winning the single-core test only due to the higher processor operating frequencies, but its dominance in the multi-core test field also came as a surprise.
So the previous generation Intel Core i9-11980HK lags behind the latest version by less than 4,000 points in the multi-core and more than 200 points in the single-core Geekbench test, while maintaining the same TPD.
Between generations, the performance of Intel’s new flagship has increased by 45%. An important “detail” is the fact that testing of the new Intel chip was carried out on a batch running Windows 11, which opens the possibility of using the new Thread Director technology, which may have contributed to the higher score.
