At Apple’s presentation of the new MacBook Pros with M1 Pro and M1 Max processors we saw big differences. It is true that the numbers are quite faithful to reality and that in this sense Apple never usually exaggerates the figures but What if we run a performance test with both computers facing each other?
Well, this is basically what they have done in this latest video on the YouTube channel of the MacRumors website. In this case, the video they share on this popular website shows the comparison of processors, not of equipment itself, since we are talking about a 14-inch MacBook Pro and a 16-inch MacBook Pro.
Get the most out of these processors is the key in this video that is why tools are used for it.
It is best to watch the entire video to see the differences of these processors on basic Apple machines. By basic we mean that they are input models without adding any custom settings like more RAM or other higher capacity and speed SSDs. If we focus directly on the Geekbench numbers, the MacBook Pro with the M1 Max scored a single-core score of 1781 points and a multicore score of 12785, while the MacBook Pro with the base chip M1 Pro scored a single core of 1666 and a multicore score of 12785.
In metal, these scores reached 38138 for the M1 Pro and 64134 for the M1 Max, but we recommend you watch the video to see the difference in export time in programs like Final Cut Pro between both models. We can tell you that the M1 Max exported a 4K video of 6 minutes in 1 minute and 49 seconds, the same task took the M1 Pro 2 minutes and 55 seconds. Really low times in both teams but with almost a minute of difference between the Max and the Pro.
