Apple's New M1 Chip is a Machine Learning Beast (M1 vs Intel MacBook speed test)




[ad_1]

At the start of the year I bought a nearly top spec Intel-based 16-inch MacBook Pro to edit videos and write code. Then Apple released their M1-powered MacBooks and the performance graphs looked insane. I decided to run a few speed test comparisons to compare my MacBook Pro to the new M1 MacBooks.

Read about the experiments and see the results – https://www.mrdbourke.com/m1-macbook-vs-intel-macbook-speed-comparison/

Tests run:
1. Final Cut Pro video export
2. CreateML machine learning model training
3. TensorFlow machine learning model training

    Do you think the M1 air would be good enough for a student interested in machine learning? Worth the upgrade to 16gb of ram? Great video

    did you turn on the graphics card setting where the graphics card is always on.

    When you realize the PRO tag is just another ad.
