Apple M1 chip frequently outperforms other Graphics Processing Units, i.e, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and AMD Radeon RX 560 in their graphics performance.
However, there would be a need to know the features of Apple M1 Chip and its counterparts, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and AMD Radeon 560. And what and what gave Apple M1 chip outstanding performance over others.
Apple M1 chip
Apple M1 chip is the first chip designed by Apple preferably for Mac. It delivers exceptional performance and revolutionary power management. It was also designed to work with macOS Big Sur, which is the most advanced desktop operating system in the whole world. Meanwhile, a Mac computer with an M1 processor is would become exceptional with performance per watt.
Before the advent of M1, a mac uses multiple chips that deliver all of its features, including I/O, security, and memory. Positively in Apple M1 chip, all these features were combined into a single System on a Chip (SoC). Thus, it gave the chip (M1) a new integration level for more simplicity, efficiency, exceptional and amazing performance. It is also remarkable for using the largest transistors (16 billion transistors) into a single chip. Also, it is known as the only first PC chip that is built by using the latest industry-specific 5 nm processing technology.
It has what is called UMA (Unified Memory Architecture). The Unified Memory Architecture featured high bandwidth. By this, the System On Chip (SOCs) phenomena would have access to the same data. Inclusively, this drastically improves power efficiency, performance, video apps usage, and Gaming.
It has a significant CPU performance; the highest performance CPU Apple has ever built is the 8-core CPU in M1.
Apple M1 chip has been classed as the fastest integrated graphics for a personal computer. Before the M1, personal computers use a discrete chip that consumes a lot of power to get the best graphics performance. But it is different in the sense that it has a huge increase in graphics performance and low power consumption.
M1 also has extensive battery life even during a massive increase in performance. Such as while playing the latest game.
The Radeon RX 560
This is an intermediate-range graphics card developed by AMD which was launched in April 2017. The graphics card supports DirectX 12, with the graphics processor Polaris 21 that is built on the 14 nm process. This paved way for all the new games to function effectively on Radeon RX 560.
Inclusively, the Polaris 21 graphics processor is a medium-sized chip with 123mm2 and 3000 million transistors. It characterizes 1024 shading units, 16 ROPs, and 64 texture mapping units.
Additionally, Radeon RX 560 has enormous features which include 4GB GDDR5 memory paired by AMD, a 128-bit memory interface, a GPU with a frequency of 1175 MHz that boosts up to 1275 MHz, and a memory speed at 1750 MHz (with effective 7 Gbps).
Radeon RX 560 is a dual-slot card that consumes about 75 W maximum. Because of that, it does not require an additional power connector.
The display output of Radeon RX 560 includes 1x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI, and 1x DVI. It uses a PCI-Express 3.0 x8 interface for connecting the remaining part of the system. However, Radeon RX 560 was priced at 99 US$ at launch and has 170 mm length with a dual-slot cooling solution.
Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti
GTX 1050 Ti is powered by Pascal architecture and is regarded as the world’s most advanced gaming GPU architecture, delivering amazing performance and innovative latest gaming technologies. Different from the previous generation, it has better speed and power efficiency.
It has a standard memory configuration of 4 GB GDDR5 and a memory speed of 7 Gbps, with NVIDIA CUDA Cores 768. Besides, Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti is connected with a 128-bit memory interface width.
In addition to the mentioned above, Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti supports simultaneous multi-projection, Microsoft DirectX 12 API with feature level 12_1, and a Digital Resolution of 7680×4320. While the card has 4.38 height, 5.7 lengths, and promotes dual slot width. There is a maximum GPU temperature, 75 W of graphics card power, and has no additional power connectors.
