MacBook Air with M1 processor beats 16-inch MacBook Pro on Geekbench

The MacBook Air with the new M1 processor was discovered on Geekbench and outperforms the 16-inch MacBook Pro with the Intel Core i9 processor. Apple recently updated its Mac mini, MacBook Pro 13-inch, and MacBook Air with its in-house M1 processor, replacing the Intel processors, as the company previously announced. Now the MacBook Air has found its way to Geekbench with the new M1 chip and seems to outperform all other CPUs, at least in the single-core scores.

The Geekbench listing comes with the name “MacBook Air 10.1” and has the “Apple Silicon” processor. The laptop has 8 GB of RAM and runs on macOS 11.0.1. A single-core score of 1,687 and a multi-core score of 7,433 were achieved. The listing also shows a base frequency of 3.2 GHz, which is significantly higher than the base clock speed of 2.3 GHz of the Intel Core i9-9880H processor on the 16-inch MacBook Pro.

Look at the processor Leaderboard On Geekbench, the M1 processor with eight cores outperforms the processors with a much higher number of cores in single-score benchmarks. The most powerful processor in the ranking is the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X with 16 cores and a single-core score of 1,628 – much less than the M1 from Apple. Next up is the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X with eight cores and a single-core score of 1,625. Interestingly, with the M1 processor, the MacBook Air is comfortable too Hit the top of the line 16-inch MacBook Pro with the Intel Core i9-9880H processor, in terms of both single-core (1,029) and multi-core (6,012) results.

This already significant performance lead is even more surprising when you consider that the MacBook Air is fanless, which means that unlike the 16-inch MacBook Pro, there is no active cooling. All heat powered by the processor and other components of the MacBook Air with M1 is passively cooled. It should also be noted that the base MacBook Air with 8GB of RAM outperformed the top-end 16-inch MacBook Pro.

The same processor is also found in the updated 13-inch faned MacBook Pro, and it may perform even better than the MacBook Air, especially in terms of longer-lasting charging. It’s safe to say that Apple has achieved something pretty impressive with its new M1 processor and the new laptops can easily outperform previous generation offerings for the same price.
