Apple M1 Max 24-Core GPU

Apple M1 Max 24-Core GPU

The Apple M1 Max 24-Core-GPU is an integrated graphics card by Apple offering 24 of the 32 cores in the M1 Max Chip. The 3,072 ALUs offer a theoretical performance of up to 8 Teraflops. 

The graphics card has no dedicated graphics memory but can use the fast LPDDR5-6400 unified memory with a 512 bit bus (up to 400 GBit/s).

The GPU clocks between 389 and 1296 MHz and offers no short term boost (389, 486, 648, 778, 972, 1296 MHz steps according to Powermetrics). The GPU is intended to use Apple Metal 2 API and could still be based on the older PowerVR architectures (last used in the Apple A10).

The Apple M1 Max is manufactured in the modern 5nm process at TSMC and offers an excellent energy efficiency.
