Apple has announced the long-awaited breakthrough in the Apple success story and has set a new standard with the new MacBook: The MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini with Apple’s silicon arm processor combine powerful technology in a single M1 chip for better battery backup, power efficiency, and performance.
The virtual event took place in Apple Park, California. The presentation introduces consumers to a massive transition from the current Intel chipset to Mac OS. During the event, Apple’s first custom M1 chip was launched for the all-new MacBooks and Macs, and another pen was added to the lid.
Prices for these Mac models range from $699 to $1299: The price of the Mac Mini is $699, the MacBook Air is $999, and the MacBook Pro is $1299. For educational purposes, MacBook Pro can be purchased for $1199.
For the uninitiated: Specially developed chips have been used for iPhone, iPad and Apple watches for years. For more than a decade, they’ve been developing and refining Apple’s silicon for Mac computers. The result of their hard work and endurance is the M1 chip, the fastest low-power silicon processor core designed specifically for the Mac.
Johny Srouji, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Hardware Technology, spoke about the new M1 chip: There’s never been a chip like the M1, our revolutionary SoC for Mac.
Based on more than a decade of experience in developing advanced chips for the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, it heralds a whole new era for the Mac. When it comes to low-power silicon, the M1 has the world’s fastest processor core, the world’s fastest embedded graphics on a personal computer, and the impressive power of Apple’s neural motor for machine learning.

With its unique combination of great performance, powerful features and incredible efficiency, the M1 is by far the best chip we’ve ever made, he added.
In order to meet the relative demand in view of the major crisis facing the world – as a result of COWID-19 – appropriate changes have been made in line with time requirements, and an attempt has therefore been made to reduce any bottlenecks in production.
At this stage of the pandemic crisis, Apple makes the best transition from the development of Intel x86 to the company’s M1 SOC system.
With 16 billion transistors integrated into 5 nanometer technology, the M1 chip has a processor core of undeniable speed, machine learning accelerators with a 16-core neural motor that can perform 11 trillion operations per second.

As a result, the M1 offers up to 3.5 times faster CPU performance and 6 times faster GPUs for impressive performance.
In addition, the early use of multiple chips in processors is now integrated into this miniature chip, allowing the M1 to work with four high-performance cores and four high-performance cores with an 8-core processor.

Thanks to the processor’s high power per watt, even the most tedious and complex tasks are easier than ever before. Measure this by using the ability to process up to 25,000 wires simultaneously.
With state-of-the-art power, you can stream multiple 4K videos and view complex scenes in 3D. It also features a unified memory architecture and uses the power of the best M1 chip technology to access data without duplicating it, increasing speed and performance at an unprecedented rate.
Apple has moved from the Intel processors it’s been using since 2005 to silicon chips and is ahead of its time, even when the global economy is paralyzed by a pandemic.
These handheld Macs feature the all-new Secure Enclave for maximum security; advanced camera image processing (ISP) for high-quality images, excessive noise, studio-quality microphones, active cooling, 20 hours of video playback, and low power consumption for longer battery life.
The event also announced the next major announcement of the macOS Big Sur operating system – version 11.0, 12. November 2020, the first appearance of which has already been announced at the World Development Conferences in June. It remains to be seen whether this new software update will work on Intel and Apple silicon processors without any problems.
