In recent news, a popular TechTuber who goes by the name of Luke Miani has just posted a new video on YouTube. In the video, we can see the content creator comparing an M1 Pro-based Apple MacBook Pro 16 with a model that featured the more-powerful M1 Max SoC and also some additional RAM.
We can see the host putting Apple’s MacBooks through 20 benchmarks and by the end of the footage we get a clear idea as to just how powerful the new Apple laptops are. The M1 Max model was also tested in the same benchmarks in high-power mode, however, it displayed some disappointing results initially and didn’t shine much using this feature.
Miami has also provided us with details about how much the cost of the laptop, and the M1 Pro MacBook Pro 16 (16-core GPU, 16 GB RAM) costs US$2,699 and the M1 Max MacBook Pro 16 (32-core GPU, 64 GB RAM) is priced at US$3,899.
We have embedded the video of the numerous benchmarks performed by Miani in our article, and the amazing thing is that the M1 Max machine, has proven itself to be a monster in graphics and GPU benchmarks, such as Geekbench compute and the various GFXBench tests.
but in terms of video-editing benchmarks such as Final Cut Pro and DaVinci Resolve, only a few seconds separate the M1 Pro device with the M1 Max laptop in the tasks of file exporting and rendering.
Coming to the Blender BMW GPU bench we can see practically no difference between the two MacBooks, and Miani claims that the M1 Max MacBook Pro 16 would appeal to those who are involved in constant graphics-intensive tasks however for those who just want to play games, the much-cheaper M1 Pro machine would most likely be sufficient to cover the majority of use cases
