M1 MacBook Air is Faster Than You Think! (Real Tests) - Krazy Ken's Tech Misadventures

Sains & Teknologi

The M1 MacBook Air is the first part of Apple's transition away from Intel processors. Despite the criticisms about it being a "phone" chip, it's incredibly fast, power efficient, and cool. You have to see it to believe it, so check it out; Krazy Ken will be your captain for today.

Krazy Ken's Tech Misadventures - M1 MacBook Air is Faster Than You Think!
UPDATE: I have been informed that I was not holding a PowerBook 100 at the end, like I accidentally claimed. Yep! It's a 165c. The sad thing is… I actually HAVE a 100, but I guess I didn't check close enough when I went on camera. Oops.

  • red_ashcroft
    red_ashcroft3 bulan yang lalu

    My friend who works in the semi conductor industry, once told me the processor you see now, has been developed 5 years ago. M1 has been the product of meticulous planning ever since the first 64bit A series came out. This is why ever since then, everyone has been playing catch up with Apple. Dropping the M1 is a very big surprise, because the others have just got past half of what M1 can do on the ARM architecture.

    interesting, M1 not doing so well in video editing iddown.info/the/i22We9if1LbDjsk/video.html I was surprised by the comparison to the Dell XPS 17, which is an i7 intel. As compared, the Dell was a $3000 intel and the M1 was a $2300 16GB RAM MBP. In Premiere Pro it took M1 28:19 mins to complete but the Dell only took 10:51 mins. And for M1 optimized Davinci Resolve 17, the M1 took 15:56 mins to complete and the Dell took 15:16 mins to complete the same task. How can Intel perform just like the M1? I thought the M1 is supposed to be several times faster than the intel? It is all too confusing. I wish it was just simple and the M1 outperformed everything

    Speak out and remove all doubt!4 bulan yang lalu

    What do you think Apple's high-end desktop chips will look like? A lot of the performance and efficiency of this M1 chip comes from the on-package memory. Having ultra fast, low power memory on-package not only means data can be accessed much faster but it also requires a lot less power to do this compared to normal DIMMs of DDR4, the only issue is it's relatively expensive, especially when you need a lot. I think the entire Apple performance philosophy will rely on this design, so I could see there being a 32GB, 64GB and 128GB version of the CPUs for the high end desktops. Although at $200 per 8GB that would mean a 128GB chip would cost $3200 in RAM alone and that's using the much cheaper DDR4L when I believe they might (should) move to HBM. There is a chance they will still max out at 16GB or maybe up to 32GB of on-package memory, then rely on having a secondary slower 'normal' RAM option, maybe DDR5 depending when these come out, that can be configured to huge capacities at slightly more palatable prices. But my money would be on Apple producing a monster chip (similar in design to the Fujitsu A64FX chip) with something like 128GB of ultra fast HBM, 8 layers giving around 4TB/s of bandwidth, to be used as the unified memory for the whole chip which is then directly connected to a PCIE 5 'hyper-drive' SSD over 16 or more lanes. These could actually be very fast, offering up to 128GB/s on PCIE-5 (over 16 lanes). Also PCIE-6 isn't that far off, probably 2023 which doubles this again to 256GB/s. These speeds are actually faster than 8 channels of fast DDR4 and you can make these drives much larger and cheaper! We really could see the death of normal DDR memory on DIMM with a move to ultra fast on-die / on-package system memory plus ultra fast SSDs. Latency might be an issue but a small price to pay for the overall massive performance boost we would see from a shift to system designs like this. As ever the main enemy on monster chips is heat but ARM architectures have a massive advantage here over x86 plus switching to HBM rather than DDR will help a fair bit too. I could see the top end Mac Pro Chip in 2021 looking something like this: 32 core CPU (all high performance Firestorm cores) 128 core GPU 128 core Neural Engine 128GB HBM Built on TSMC's 5nm+ (it's too early for 4nm or 3nm) Price: ~$15-20k

    It's impressive, however, the unified memory gives you speed on GPU stuff because you avoid copying stuff back and forth. If you have an entry level Intel Mac,, 8GB are not real because the video memory is stolen from the main memory, so the 8GB could become 6.5GB (the about panel tells you the video card can use up to 1.5GB), so, the M1 chip will not reserve part of your ram because it will use the same memory for the CPU and GPU (hopefully, not a potential security risk there), so the user win up to 1.5GB, which is not few. On the other side bigger Macs win the ability to use a discrete GPU with it own RAM, however every intel Mac comes with the integrated GPU too... The question is, if I force the use of the discrete GPU, I'll gain precious RAM because the internal GPU will not be use? Awesome work Ken, thanks.

  • ditroia

    Great review Ken, the M1 is an amazing chip. Unfortunately in Australia Apple makes it really hard to recommend, unless you are already in the ecosystem. For the price of the same air, you can get a 6-8 core Ryzen 4000 based laptop with more ram and storage. The only drop is the 1080p screen compared to the 1600p on the Mac. Once you spend $600 to increase RAM and SSD to 16GB and 512GB, then you can get any premium laptop you want. I would personally love a mini to tinker with but can’t justify the price for those base specs.

My gaming PC can handle performance intensive programs much better than my Macs(Intel based), but my Macs are much more stable, quick and convenient for daily work. Though my M1 Mac Mini, now handles almost everything my PCs and Intel Macs could.

    I grabbed the MacBook Pro M1, and while it does have a fan in it, I haven't heard it once. This thing doesn't seem to heat up at all. For someone like me that also uses laptops in places that can possibly kill them, like sitting on a bed while playing video, this is the perfect machine. Not only does it not heat up naturally, but it's super-efficient with decoding video, so it doesn't have to work that hard to do much of anything. Even 4K is buttery smooth! (My MacBook Retina 2013 chugs with 4K and the fan kicks on relatively quickly.)
