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

Overview[edit]

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

Integrated Graphics[edit]

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


Neural Engine and ISP[edit]

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


Utilizing Devices[edit]

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