This is BANANAS that we have to seek out the highest of the highest end laptops and workstation class desktops to find any real competition for the M1 Max. A laptop should not be comparable to a workstation class Intel Xeon desktop – But it is…
Apple’s new MacBook Pro with the new M1 Max Apple Silicon chip is testing comparably to Intel Xeon based Mac Pro with a monster GPU. Intel, AMD, Nvidia, QualComm and everyone that depends on any of those chips should be very very scared right now.
M1 Max Beats Intel Xeon/AMD GPU In 4 Out of 10 Tests
Here is yet another set of tests that show the M1 Max is a BEAST and compares very favorably against an insanely expensive Mac Pro with an Intel Xeon processor and AMD GPU.
The M1 Max MacBook Pro beat the 2019 Mac Pro in 4 out of 10 tests we ran.Bare Feats – M1 Max MacBook Pro versus 2019 Mac Pro – Part 1 and Part 2
