The M1 Max, as the name suggests, is the top-end M1 chip.

Apple launched new MacBook Pro models at the Apple event on October 18. The company unveiled two new models with an all-new design and upgraded internals. The highlight feature of the new MacBook Pro models is the new chipset under the hood. Apple unveiled the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips that power the Pro MacBooks and are likely to feature in upcoming Mac machines as well. The M1 Max, as the name suggests, is the top-end M1 chip.

Apple M1 Max, which powers the new MacBook Pro models, is listed on the Geekbench website. It reveals that the new chip offers up to 3x faster GPU compared to the original M1. The M1 Max comes equipped with a 32-core GPU, which is four times the number of cores found on the M1. This particular chip has visited the Geekbench 5 website, and the Metal benchmark numbers suggest that the M1 Max’s GPU scored 68,870 in the test, reported MacRumors. The 13” MacBook Pro with an M1 chip, in comparison, scored 20,581 in the Geekbench test. The Radeon Pro 5600M, which was the highest-end GPU option for the prior Intel-based 16-inch model, has a Metal score of 42510.

The M1X Max also outperforms the previous Intel chip found on the 16-inch MacBook Pro by 62 percent. It is currently unclear if the chip listed on Geekbench is a 24-core GPU variant of the M1 Max or the 32-core GPU variant.

Other benchmark scores of the M1 Max were spotted recently as well. The chip scored 1749 and 11,542 in Geekbench’s single-core and multi-core tests. This is double the score of the M1 chip, which is found on the outgoing 13-inch MacBook Pro. For more details, click here.
