Apple M1 Ultra PassMark score: multi-core score exceeds i9-12900K

The benchmarking platform PassMark has now updated the benchmarking information of the Apple M1 Ultra. First of all, in terms of single-threaded benchmarks, the Apple M1 Ultra and M1 Max and M1 Pro are almost identical, at the level of the Intel i7-12700.

In terms of multi-threaded benchmarks, the 20-core M1 Ultra scores slightly higher than the 16-core i9-12900K, but not as good as most workstation processors, and it's more difficult to compare with AMD's new 64-core Threadripper Pro 5995WX, which is at the top of the list. More than 2x the M1 Ultra.

According to reports, PassMark's CPU performance test will run eight different tests, and then average the results together.

IT Home has learned that the M1 Ultra adopts Apple's innovative UltraFusion packaging architecture, which realizes a 20-core central processing unit, a 64-core graphics processor, and a 32-core neural network engine through the internal interconnection of two M1 Max dies. A total of 114 billion transistors are integrated inside the new SoC chip, the most in the history of a Mac computer chip. Additionally, the M1 Ultra features unified memory with configurable bandwidth up to 128GB and low latency.

As a comparison, AMD Threadripper Pro 5995WX is 64 cores and 128 threads, up to 4.5GHz, L3 cache 256MB, 280W power consumption, and supports 8-channel DDR4 memory.

Obviously, Apple's M1 Ultra struggles to match the AMD Threadripper Pro 5995WX. However, Apple has officially announced the Mac Pro at the end of the M1 Ultra conference, and the chip on this product is the Xeon and Threadripper level.
