The M1 Ultra SoC (system on a chip)
It is the latest addition to Apple’s M1 chipset range, and it’s even more powerful than the M1, M1 Pro, and M1 Max processors the business has launched so far.
The M1 Ultra’s major feature is Apple’s Ultra Fusion architecture, which effectively fuses two distinct M1 Max CPUs into a single, gigantic SoC owing to the M1 Max’s 2.5TB/s inter-processor link. The M1 Ultra has 20 CPU cores (16 performance and four efficiency), 64 GPU cores, a 32-core Neural Engine for AI processing, and up to 128GB of RAM, which is nearly quadruple the specs of Apple’s M1 Max processor. According to Apple, the M1 Ultra surpasses the standard M1 by eight times.
Apple also boasts that their new, enormous processor
Delivers higher CPU performance than a “16-core PC desktop” while using 100W less power, as well as similar GPU performance to the “highest-end discrete GPU” while using 200W less power. (Apple isn’t telling whose competitors it’s testing against, and we’ll have to test the M1 Ultra ourselves to verify these claims.)
The M1 Ultra will create 1st appearance in a new Mac Studio desktop –
Which Apple declared at the same time as the new chip (it looks a lot like a giant stack of Mac Mini desktops). For context, Apple’s original M1 chip debuted in a MacBook Air, entry-level MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini, but it also found its way into Apple’s colourful iMac re – launch and the 2k20 iPad Pro tablet, so the M1 Ultra might also appear in other Apple desktop computers (like an even more powerful new Apple Silicon-powered Mac Pro) in the coming months.
