The top version of the mobile processor includes a 32-core graphics gas pedal. The cores contain 16 executive units, each with eight arithmetic and logistic devices. Multiply all that and you get 4096 stream processors.
Apple said at the presentation that the maximum theoretical GPU performance of the M1 Max reaches 10.4 TFLOPS. This corresponds to the level of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 mobile discrete graphics card. However, Apple noted that at a TGP of 60W, its new chip competes with the GeForce RTX 3080 at 160W. According to the American manufacturer, the M1 Max delivers nearly the same performance while consuming 100 watts less.
We had to test the mobile processor with GFXBench 5, since there is no majority of graphics testing software for macOS. The test was performed on the device with macOS X operating system and low-level API Metal installed.
The Apple M1 Max's integrated GPU performed quite well, on par with the GeForce RTX 3080 and Radeon RX 6800M. Moreover, in some tests, the integrated video chip was much more powerful than discrete graphics gas pedals. For example, in Manhattan. Only in ALU 2 AMD and NVIDIA cards did not leave a chance for M1 Max.
