The Apple M1(APL1102) is an ARM-based system on a chip (SoC) as a central processing unit (CPU) and graphics processing unit (GPU) for its Macintosh computers and iPad Pro tablets.
We’re also getting eight GPU cores, with Apple claiming that this integrated GPU is the fastest in its class, offering 2.6 TFLOPs of FP32 throughput.
The “unified memory” replaces the need for separate RAM, meaning that the chip comes with either 8GB or 16GB of LPDDR4X-4266 MHz SDRAM, depending on your device.
The APPLE M1 also has a separate 16-core neural engine for machine learning tasks.
