When the M1 chip was being announced I was really excited as it is Apple's first chip designed specifically for the Mac and it might just be a new line of processors for the Mac. It delivers incredible performance, custom technologies, and revolutionary power efficiency. Until now, The Mac has had multiple chips for multiple features, But with M1 All these features are put together into one chip, delivering more power and efficiency. The M1 has the largest number of transistors ever in a single chip and it's also the first computer chip built using industry-leading 5-nanometer process technology. it has up to 3.9x faster video processing, 7.1x faster image processing. It has an 8-core CPU (Up to 3.5x faster CPU performance). It has an 8-core GPU (Up to 25k concurrent threads. It has a 16-core Neural Engine (Up to 15x faster machine learning). The first Macs to have the M1 chip is the new MacBook Air ( 7-core GPU, 256GB is for Rs. 92,900 / 8-core GPU, 512GB is for Rs. 1,17,900), The New 13-inch MacBook Pro, The new Mac Mini. For the first time ever you can run iPhone and iPad apps on the Mac, including games, .etc. Every App that comes with Mac, M1 has up to 3x more instrument and effect plug-ins with Logic Pro. final cut pro is up to 6x faster. With all these features you can do things like colour-correcting 6K videos easily.
