M1 Chip

Small chip. Giant leap.

It’s here. Our first chip designed specifically for Mac. Packed with an astonishing 16 billion transistors, the Apple M1 system on a chip (SoC) integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O, and so much more onto a single tiny chip. With incredible performance, custom technologies, and industry-leading power efficiency1, M1 is not just a next step for Mac — it’s another level entirely.

CPU

8-core CPU We’re on a power chip.

The M1 chip makes MacBook Pro outrageously fast and powerful. Its 8‑core CPU rips through complex workflows and heavy workloads, with up to 2.8x faster processing performance than the previous generation2 — all with unbelievable energy efficiency.

CPU

8-core CPU The 8-core CPU in M1 is the highest-performing CPU we’ve ever built, by far. It combines four performance cores and four efficiency cores that work together to tackle demanding multithreaded tasks, resulting in a quantum leap in performance at a fraction of the power — and a significant boost to battery life.

Four performance cores Our high-performance core is the world’s fastest CPU core when it comes to low-power silicon3 — and M1 has four of them combining their efforts for a massive boost in performance. Compile in Xcode in significantly less time. Record, mix, and master professional-quality music in Logic Pro with scores of tracks, plug‑ins, and virtual instruments. And create stunning images in Adobe Lightroom with unprecedented speed and responsiveness.

Four efficiency cores Four efficiency cores deliver outstanding performance for everyday tasks using just a tenth of the power. These e‑cores are the most efficient place to run lightweight tasks, allowing the performance cores to tackle the most demanding workloads.

GPU

8-core GPU
Creates beauty like a beast.

The 8-core GPU in M1 is the most advanced graphics processor we’ve ever built. Period. And it brings the world’s fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer7, delivering a ridiculous 5x boost in graphics horsepower.

Up to5Xfaster graphics performance8

GPU

Eight dedicated graphics cores Get ready to create and play beyond your wildest dreams. With eight powerful GPU cores tasked with making graphics smoother, faster, and breathtakingly beautiful — it’s a MacBook Pro you have to see to believe. 8K video plays seamlessly, and graphics‑intensive workflows zip by in a blink.9

Incredible graphics performance Render 3D titles up to 5x faster in Final Cut Pro8. Fluidly design intricate scenes in Unity with up to 3x faster graphics10. And blast through games with supersmooth frame rates when it’s time to play. Feast your eyes on the world’s fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer.11

Machine learning

16-core Neural Engine. Smarts, meet speed. Machine learning (ML) brings task‑smashing speed and automation to video analysis, voice recognition, image processing, and more. And the M1 chip with 16‑core Neural Engine and full stack of technologies takes ML performance on MacBook Pro into the stratosphere.

Up to11Xfaster ML performance14

Machine learning

The magic of machine learning The machine learning technologies in the M1 chip open up a world of possibilities for Mac apps. Machine learning lets apps build and apply models based on massive amounts of data — to do things like identify friends and family in photos and videos, interpret natural language for dictation, and even analyze audio to recognize laughter, applause, and more. And that data is processed on device to protect your privacy — all at lightning speed.

16-core Neural Engine The dedicated 16-core Neural Engine in the M1 chip can execute up to a staggering 11 trillion operations per second, powering workflows you couldn’t imagine before — like enabling the djay Pro AI app to isolate instrumentals and vocals of any song in real time.

Optimized for machine learning The entire M1 chip is engineered for machine learning. The CPU, GPU, and Neural Engine are each designed for different types of machine learning workloads — and the ML performance controller distributes ML tasks to the right places to maximize performance.

ML accelerators The two dedicated ML accelerators are built for fast matrix multiplication, executing up to one trillion operations per second — perfect for low-latency ML tasks that don’t require the massive power of the Neural Engine.

macOS Big Sur

The power of macOS Big Sur on M1.

Developed to unlock the potential of the M1 chip, macOS Big Sur transforms Mac with major performance benefits and so much more. Powerful updates for apps. A beautiful new design. Industry-leading privacy features and best‑in‑class security. It’s our most powerful software ever — running on our most advanced hardware yet.

Speed and responsiveness

The M1 chip and macOS Big Sur work together to make the entire system snappier. MacBook Pro wakes instantly from sleep. Everyday tasks from flipping through photos to browsing Safari are faster. And your hardest-working apps all have access to the power they need.

More power. Wakes instantly.

Biggest collection of apps ever

Run powerful apps built for M1. All your existing apps work thanks to Rosetta 2. And for the first time, you can use your favorite iPhone and iPad apps directly on macOS Big Sur. Altogether you’ll have access to the biggest collection of apps ever for Mac.

Thermal efficiency

Active cooling sustains blazing-fast performance.

All-day battery life

Up to 20
hours of battery life — the longest in any Mac ever.15

Unified memory

Runs a tight chip. The M1 chip brings up to 16GB of superfast unified memory. This single pool of high‑bandwidth, low‑latency memory allows apps to share data between the CPU, GPU, and Neural Engine efficiently — so everything you do is fast and fluid.
