Apple's new M1 Max CPU in the 2021 MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16 has expectedly achieved formidable multi-core scores in Geekbench, and is very close to the performance of a desktop workstation like the Mac Pro that is equipped with Intel Xeon processors.

Only a few hours after Apple has officially revealed the new 2021 MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16 at today's Unleashed keynote event, a first benchmark of the all-new Apple M1 Max processor has already leaked online. Apple's new chip apparently has more than enough multi-core power to satisfy both professional and other performance hungry customers.

According to a report by MacRumors, the databank of the well-known benchmark software Geekbench already includes a legitimately-looking entry of the new Apple M1 Max. According to the benchmark, the chip was able to score 1,749 points in the single-core test, while scoring an impressive 11,542 points in the multi-core benchmark. With that result, the M1 Max appears to be around 65% faster than the Apple M1 in the 2020 MacBook Pro 13 (from US$1,179 on Amazon), which was already one of the best-performing mobile processors on the market.

The Apple M1 Max therefore has better performance that almost any chip that is built into other Apple products. Only the Intel Xeon CPUs with 16 and more cores that are built into the stationary Mac Pro and iMac Pro are faster than the Apple M1 Max. With its great multi-core performance in Geekbench, the M1 Max appears to be on par with the 12 core Intel Xeon W-3235. Apple's competitor Intel, which is currently preparing for the imminent launch of its new Alder Lake processors, will probably look enviously at the new CPUs that power the new 2021 MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch.

My fascination for technology goes back a long way to the Pentium II era. Modding, overclocking and treasuring computer hardware has since become an integral part of my life. As a student, I further developed a keen interest in mobile technologies that can make the stressful college life so much easier. After I fell in love with the creation of digital content while working in a marketing position, I now scour the web to bring you the most exciting topics in the world of tech. Outside the office, I’m particularly passionate about motorsports and mountain biking.
