Intel Hand Picks Benchmarks to Show Its 11th Gen. Core CPUs Is Better Than Apple’s M1 Chip

Apple’s M1 scrap has been a wake-up phone call for Intel whose fries have failed to push the boundary in terms of performance and efficiency over the last few years. The company has now shared some benchmarks comparing its 11th gen Cadre processors to Apple’s M1 scrap showing how its offering is better.

The benchmarks and scenarios are handpicked by Intel merely to testify how its latest 11th gen. CPUs are ameliorate than Apple tree’south offering in every department. Ane of the benchmark slideshows shows Intel making claims that an 11th gen. Intel CPU-based organisation is around thirty% faster overall and 3x faster in photo enhancement subtest compared to a Mac with an M1 fleck. Similarly, Intel claims that while running Office 365, exporting a PDF is upwardly to 2.3x faster on an Intel auto.

Intel vs M1 MacBook Performance claims

Another benchmark slideshow from Intel claims that its 11th gen. Core CPUs offer notably improve AI performance than M1 Macs, with the performance advantage existence up to 6x in some cases. It also shows some benchmarks of Photoshop and Lightroom Classic in which the M1 MacBook is behind the 11th gen. Intel PC, with the latter existence upwards to 1.7x times faster in exporting H.265 videos. Some key features like Content Aware Fill and Photograph Merge HDR Panorama are also non bachelor on the M1 MacBook for now, though that’s understandable since the app is however in beta for the new fries.

In the gaming section, Intel paints the M1 chip in a bad lite past naming some popular gaming titles like ‘Rainbow Six Siege,’ ‘Doom Eternal,’ ‘Overwatch,’ ‘PUBG,’ ‘Microsoft Flying Simulator 2022,’ and more which simply exercise non run on the M1 MacBook. For games that exercise run on both platforms, both Intel and Apple trade blows with each other.

Intel vs M1 MacBook battery life

One of the most bizarre claims that Intel makes is that an 11th gen. CPU-based laptop offers similar battery life as the M1 MacBook Pro. Intel pitted an Acer Swift five featuring the 11th gen. Core i7-1165G7 CPU against the M1 MacBook Air in a battery drain examination. Both machines lasted for nearly the same fourth dimension: 10 hours and 12 minutes for the Mac and 10 hours and half-dozen minutes for the Acer. The grab here is that Intel did non employ the same 11th gen. CPU for benchmarks that it used for the battery life tests. For the battery life benchmarks, Intel used an M1 MacBook Air instead of the M1 MacBook Pro that was used for benchmark comparison.

Intel also highlights other limitations of the M1 MacBook platform in its slides including the inability to use more than i external display, lack of support for eGPUs, gaming controllers, external webcams, Wacom drawing tablets, and more.

Our Take

Going by the benchmark slides shared by Intel, one might call up that its 11th gen. Core CPUs are better than Apple’due south M1 scrap. However, that’s non exactly the case. The M1 chip is Apple’s first custom CPU for its Mac. In its first endeavour, Apple tree has managed to design a chip that offers better ability-to-performance than Intel CPUs. The latter has also shown simply those scenarios and benchmarks which favors its CPUs. In existent life, an M1 MacBook is going to last notably longer than an 11th gen. Intel-based laptop.

There are plenty of areas where the M1 scrap does indeed autumn backside Intel CPUs simply given Apple’s rapid stride of innovation, it is just a affair of fourth dimension before that changes.
