Power. It’s in the Air. It’s here. Apple’s first chip designed specifically for Mac. Packed with an astonishing 16 billion transistors, the Apple M1 system on a chip (SoC) integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O and so much more onto a single tiny chip.
With incredible performance, custom-engineered technologies and industry-leading power efficiency, M1 is not just a next step for Mac – it’s another level entirely. M1 has the fastest CPU Apple has ever made. With that kind of processing speed, MacBook Air can take on new extraordinarily intensive tasks like professional-quality video editing and action-packed gaming.
But the 8-core CPU on M1 isn’t just up to 3.5x faster than the previous generation – it balances high-performance cores with efficiency cores that can still crush everyday jobs while using just a tenth of the power.
