Apple’s M1 chip can apparently outperform some AMD and Nvidia graphics cards

If you saw the Apple ‘One More Thing’ event last week then you’ll have heard the rather grand promises made for the new silicone M1 SoC (system on a chip). We’re still a tad skeptical, but new benchmarking scores have revealed that the M1 can outperform older generation dedicated GPUs (graphics processing units) like the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and AMD Radeon RX 560.

The GFXBench 5.0 benchmarks revealed that the M1 often outperforms the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and AMD Radeon RX 560. According to Apple, the M1’s 8-core GPU can juggle up to 25,000 threads, with the potential to deliver up to 2.6 TFLOPS of throughput. This is the same TFLOPS achieved by the Radeon RX 560, and just below the GeForce GTX 1650‘s 2.9 TFLOPS. We would love to see the M1 actually tested against old favorites like the GTX 1650 due to its performance boost over the GTX 1050 Ti, but sadly this isn’t available at the time of writing.

Before we get too excited about what this could mean for chipset advancements, we need to point out that GFXBench 5.0 is usually used for benchmarking smartphone devices and isn’t exactly the optimal tool for testing graphics cards.
