M1 MacBook Pro with 8GB, 16GB RAM show surprising benchmark results

M1 MacBook Pro with 8GB, 16GB RAM show surprising benchmark results

Apple's M1 Silicon has definitely been hogging the computing news spotlight these past weeks, most of them comparing its performance with Intel's chips. Not all M1 Macs are the same, of course, and not just counting the difference between an M1 MacBook Air and an M1 MacBook Pro. Even the MacBook Pro (Late 2020) offers two slightly different models with different RAM capacities. Thankfully, someone took the time to benchmark these two variants, and the results might surprise you a bit.

Intel boasts battery performance superiority over AMD in Intel tests

Intel boasts battery performance superiority over AMD in Intel tests

Intel has taken quite a beating this year, from AMD's unwavering onslaught to the damning benchmarks of the Apple Silicon M1. The launch of its 11th-gen Tiger Lake processors for laptops has seemingly been pushed to the sidelines as a consequence and it is looking for ways to get back into the spotlight. What better way to do that than by calling out its eternal rival AMD over the latter's battery performance and, sure enough, the benchmarks ran by Intel show it having the upper hand in that particular use case.

Apple Silicon M1 outperforms older NVIDIA, AMD desktop GPUs in benchmarks

Apple Silicon M1 outperforms older NVIDIA, AMD desktop GPUs in benchmarks

Apple's first-ever ARM-based Silicon, the M1, will be powering its next generation of Macs and MacBooks, some of which will be used for more than just casual computing tasks. Naturally, there are concerns about its performance versus tried and tested processors from the likes of Intel and AMD. Early CPU benchmarks already proved that the M1 can run circles around MacBooks running on recent Intel chips and now GPU benchmarks are proving Apple's claims of impressive graphics performance.

iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max nearly beat all DxOMark contenders

iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max nearly beat all DxOMark contenders

Although it was a pioneer in the smartphone photography field, it seemed for a time that Apple was slipping off the charts, at least DxOMark's charts. It has steadily been trying to regain ground in the past generations and its iPhone 12 Pro duo this year marks its biggest attempt to reclaim its position. As far as DxOMark's reviewers are concerned, it nearly succeeded in doing exactly that but still comes up short against the market leader Huawei.

Apple Silicon M1 benchmarks give credence to performance claims

Apple Silicon M1 benchmarks give credence to performance claims

Apple's announcement of the first generation of Macs running on its own Silicon processors was unsurprisingly filled with bold claims. Given the novelty of the M1 chip and its ARM-based design, there might be some apprehension if the new MacBooks will be able to hold their own against Intel's most powerful processors. Geekbench scores for these new computers have started popping up that does seem to confirm Apple's claims, trumping Intel-based MacBooks except in one case.

AMD Radeon RX 6000 series: Benchmarks claimed VS NVIDIA RTX

AMD Radeon RX 6000 series: Benchmarks claimed VS NVIDIA RTX

AMD Big Navi is here with the AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards, and AMD's got the benchmarks to prove it. Of course we wouldn't want to claim the end-all, be-all accuracy of the company reporting said benchmarks since they've got a LOT to gain from said benchmarks being favorable to their cards... but the results are telling, just the same. Included in the mix today are the AMD Radeon RX 6800, 6800 XT, and 6900 XT, with details on how they stack up VS NVIDIA's RTX 3000 GPU lineup.

Huawei Mate 40 Pro DxOMark scores are unsurprisingly high

Huawei Mate 40 Pro DxOMark scores are unsurprisingly high

Huawei has finally unveiled its last high-end smartphone of the year and it was pretty much as what leaks have said it would. Nothing was really left to be surprised about, including what is expected to be the constant highlight of Huawei's flagships. As usual, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro was able to bag DxOMark's top spots, both in regular cameras as well as selfies. That despite actually shaving off a few specs and features from its camera setup.

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Exynos, Snapdragon models still have performance gaps

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Exynos, Snapdragon models still have performance gaps

Samsung may have one of the most powerful Android phones in the market today but it also has some of the most expensive. There are definitely other options around with almost the same raw power, or even better, but some might argue that you are getting what you pay for. That might not actually be the case for Samsung's flagships, which may have different processors inside and even a different cooling system. And while the prices might be the same, JerryRigEverything's test shows the performance definitely isn't.

Surface Duo benchmarks look good for a 2019 phone

Surface Duo benchmarks look good for a 2019 phone

Microsoft's true first Android phone is intriguing and interesting but it's hard to deny that the Surface Duo's appeal is hampered by two things: its price and its specs. Despite being a seemingly futuristic device launched in 2020, the phone has the innards of a 2019 flagship, raising some concerns about its performance. One Geekbench score, however, could put those worries at rest, though only if you pit the dual-screen phone against devices launched last year as well.

OnePlus 8T leak shows the way of the future

OnePlus 8T leak shows the way of the future

The next OnePlus smartphone was leaked in part by a benchmark test, weeks if not months before launch. The next OnePlus device was almost certainly going to be the OnePlus 8T, if history served as guide for expectations in the near future. It's not that surprise that we're looking for, here - it's the degree to which OnePlus will change they way they do business in the USA thanks to their launch of OnePlus Nord.

Redmi K30 Pro Zoom makes it to DxOMark’s top 10

Redmi K30 Pro Zoom makes it to DxOMark’s top 10

Xiaomi is already notorious for its affordable phones but it apparently went even lower with its Redmi sub-brand. Every "wallet-friendly" brand, however, eventually grows up and graduates into the big leagues and Redmi is no different. The Redmi K30 Pro Zoom launched earlier this year is Xiaomi's boldest attempt to mix high-end specs with a relatively lower price. That gamble seems to be have paid off, especially when you considering DxOMark's rather glowing review of its camera performance.

Google Play Protect now treats AnTuTu like spyware

There are still debates on the usefulness not to mention the accuracy of benchmarking apps but now AnTuTu has an even bigger problem to deal with. One of the most popular benchmarking tools on mobile, especially on Android, the AnTuTu is repeatedly getting kicked out of Google's ecosystem. After it got removed from Google Play Store earlier this year, the Android maker's Play Protect security platform is now treating the app as something dangerous, effectively scaring off users from trying to install it.
