Not long ago, Apple launched the M1 Ultra on Mac Studio. Although there is a suspicion of “glue splicing”, this monster of 5nm, 20-core CPU + 64-core GPU has shown strong energy efficiency. The latest PassMark ladder list shows that the M1 Ultra’s comprehensive processor test score surpasses that of Intel’s 12th-generation Core products.
However, on the single thread that game and overclocking enthusiasts are most concerned about, the 12th-generation Core is still the strongest existence on the desktop, and the M1 Ultra “only” ranks 11th.

Of course, if the power consumption data is put out, the M1 Ultra is a bit “unreasonable”. Its typical thermal design power consumption is only 60W, while the Core i7-12700, which is slightly higher than the M1 Ultra, is 65W, and the oven can touch 180W. . The single-threaded Core i9-12900KF has a thermal design power consumption of 125W, and the oven can reach 241W.
Based on this, it is not difficult to understand why Apple dared to abandon Intel and switch to self-developed Apple Silicon in all Mac products. Coupled with the closed-loop ecology of Apple’s software and hardware, the advantage in experience can only be more and more proficient.
