Last Tuesday, Apple held an event called (One More Thing) during which it revealed its new processor M1 that the upcoming Mac computers will work with instead of Intel processors, as Apple stated that this processor is the most powerful processor it has ever made.
Here are 4 things you should know about the new Mac computers:
1- A new processor with amazing capabilities:
Apple said at the event that it had developed the M1 processor to improve Mac performance in a way that makes compact size and energy efficiency extremely important. As a SoC system, the M1 combines many powerful technologies into one chip, and features a unified memory architecture to dramatically improve performance and efficiency.
The company added that the M1 processor is the first PC processor built using advanced 5-nanometer processing technology, and contains 16 billion transistors. The processor features the world’s fastest CPU cores, the best CPU performance per watt, the fastest integrated graphics processing on a PC, and the amazing performance of machine learning technologies with the Apple Neural Engine.
As a result, the M1 processor delivers up to 3.5 times faster CPU performance, up to 6 times faster GPU performance, and 15 times faster machine learning, all with twice the improvement in battery life compared to previous-generation Mac laptop batteries. Thanks to improved performance and efficiency, the M1 processor makes the biggest leap ever for a Mac computer.
2- iOS apps will run smoothly on Mac computers:
All iOS applications for iPhones and iPads will be able to work normally in the new Mac computers, which means that users will automatically be able to access the vast majority of iPhone apps in the Mac Store, but it is not clear yet how many The apps on the Mac store that support the operation on iPhones and iPads.
3- New models of Mac computers will work with the new processor:
In the same event, Apple announced the 13-inch Mac Book Pro computer, which will be the first computer from the company to work with the new M1 processor, as Apple promises that the computer with the release of the new macOS Big Sur will provide the user with a wonderful experience, as it will become The new computer is more powerful and more efficient.
It also announced the computer (MacBook Air) Mac Book Air measuring 13 inches, which works with the same processor, as Apple indicated that the computer (MacBook Air) is the most famous Mac computer, and the best-selling laptop in the world.
And now, thanks to the efficiency of the M1 processor, the computer will provide powerful fanless performance, which means that regardless of what users do, it remains completely silent, and the new computer has a battery life of up to 18 hours of video playback.
Compared with the previous generation, the MacBook Air computer running with an M1 processor can export video editing projects in iMovie up to 3 times faster, and integrate 3D effects into the video in Final Cut Pro at up to 5 times faster.
4- Mac computers represent a major transformation for Apple:
This is the first time since 2005 that Apple will not use Intel processors in its Mac computers, as it is now using the ARM-based M1 processor instead, which is similar to the processor used in iPhones and iPads. The move is a major shift in how Apple deals with computing, making the upcoming Mac computers more similar to iPhones and iPads.
