This comparison is preliminary and it will be updated when we have more tests available.
From the available info that we have, we know that the Apple M1 is an 8-core processor, which uses the popular among smartphone CPUs, big.LITTLE architecture. This means that the CPU cores are divided into two with 4 cores for power-efficiency and 4 cores for maximum performance. The Ryzen 9 has 8 cores and 16 threads, and a boost clock of 4.30GHz.
In Geekbench 5, the Apple M1 was better in both the Single-core and the Multi-core test, by 54% and 5% respectively. These numbers are really impressive and show that Apple really knows what they are doing when it comes to designing and engineering processors.
