Early M1 Max MacBook Pro Benchmark Leaks Showing 2x Performance Of M1

Apple announced the new M1 Max-powered MacBook Pros yesterday and it appears that one has already been run through the Geekbench benchmarking suite of tests.

As a result, the new machine’s results have been posted online and they’re as impressive as we’d hoped. The machine in question is the 10-core CPU and 32-core GPU configuration.

The new machine scores 1749  in terms of single-core performance and packs a multi-core score of 11542. That means that the new chip comes in with double the performance of the M1 MacBook Pro that’s currently offered.

As MacRumors points out, these figures would make the new MacBook Pro the fastest machine Apple has ever sold, bar the iMac Pro and Mac Pro that ship with Intel’s high-end 16 to 24-core Xeon chips.

Based on these numbers, the ‌M1‌ Max outperforms all Mac chips with the exception of the Mac Pro and iMac models equipped with Intel’s high-end 16 to 24-core Xeon chips. The 11542 multi-core score is on par with the late 2019 ‌Mac Pro‌ that is equipped with a 12-core Intel Xeon W-3235.

Anyone who wants to buy a new MacBook Pro should try to place an order as soon as possible. Some configurations are already seeing multi-week delivery windows, with those who were quick to get orders in set to receive their machines next week.
