M1 is a 64-bit octa-core ARM high-performance laptop/desktop system on a chip introduced by Apple in November 2020.

Overview

Fabricated on TSMCs new N5 EUV process, the M1 integrates 16 billion transistors. Featuring four big cores called "Firestorm" and four little high-efficiency cores called "Icestorm".


Integrated Graphics

The M1 uses an eight-core Apple-designed graphics processor, though some M1s are sold one core disabled.


Neural Engine and ISP

The M1 features a 16-core neural engine thatApple claims delivers 11 trillion operations per second, identical in performance to the A14. It also incorporates an Apple image signal processor.


Utilizing Devices

  • MacBook Air (M1, 2020)
  • MacBook Pro 13" (M1, 2020)
  • Mac mini (M1, 2020)
