Announced the new M1 Pro and M1 Max chipsets announced An apple this monday (18) Next to the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro, can achieve superior raw graphics performance over PlayStation 5 (PS5). According to the estimates of the specialized site DiaryThe top-of-the-line configuration of the M1 Max — with an integrated 32-core GPU — will reach 10.4 TFLOPS (teraflops), beating the PS5’s theoretical maximum of 10.23 TFLOPS, and all of this consuming significantly less power.
Although the numbers are quite expressive, it is necessary to consider that the data is not based on tests and is part of a guesswork exercise for the site. New processors’ performance margins will only truly be known when the first units reach the consumer and foreign media for testing. Remember that PS5 is sold in Brazil From 3899.90 BRL, while the MacBook Pro with the M1 Max costs no less than R$45,499.

Although this claim did not come from Apple, Apple did not skimp on describing the capabilities of its new generation of processors for Mac computers. According to the brand, the new M1 Pro and M1 Max models use up to 70% less power than a laptop equipped with a dedicated card when faced with heavy graphics work.
This combination of high performance and low power consumption is one of the winners of the ARM architecture and instruction set behind Apple processors, and is also used in products such as snapdragon on mobile phones.

Perhaps the most important in the comparison is not the raw performance of Apple’s new processors, but the relationship to energy efficiency: a gaming laptop with RTX 3060 where 3070 You’ll already have enough margin to compete head-to-head with the PS5, using a lot more power than the console and, above all, the MacBooks.
TFLOPS is an algorithmic performance measure that estimates the number of calculations a computer can perform in a second. This means that at 10.4 TFLOPS, the MacBook Pro with M1 Max processes 10.4 trillion calculations per second.
