Apple M1 Max Gaming
Irrespective of the power, the Apple M1 Max delivers outstanding gaming performance. Even when operated at peak performance, it draws maximum power up to 100 W. This much power is significantly lesser than a high-end PC laptop equipped with a discrete GPU. Built-in 32-core GPU in the M1 Max processor generates similar performance like an Nvidia RTX 2080 GPU as well as the latest PS5 gaming console from Sony. Even after multiple hours of gaming, you will never experience a lag in responsiveness and gaming graphics.

But, this chip demonstrates a noteworthy enhancement in the multi-core performance test by Geekbench in which its score is 11,542. This score is actually double the M1 chip that drives the prevailing MacBook Pro (13-inch). Moreover, it is found that M1 Max performed quite better compared to every Mac chipset.
Apple M1 Max Vs RTX 3080 GPU Performance
According to Apple’s study, M1 Max’s GPU performs much better than Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080. Moreover, apple’s chip consumes 100W less power and gives an equal performance which means it consumes 40% less power.
Apple M1 Max Performance
The M1 Max chip showcases industry-leading performance per watt. It boasts outstanding power efficiency leading to excellent performance. Moreover, M1 Max showcases the identical 10-core CPU like M1 Pro. It comes with a huge 32-core GPU to provide 4x faster graphics performance compared to M1.
M1 Max is equipped with two larger chips consisting of 57 billion transistors. This implies that it contains the most cores, most memory, and also claims to be the biggest performance wins. There are 10 cores in the CPU which are categorized as 2 efficiency cores and 8 performance cores.
The excellent performance by M1 Max can also be gauged from its memory bandwidth. It provides up to 400GB/s of memory bandwidth which is twice that of M1 Pro and approx. 6 times that of M1.
Apple M1 Max Memory Bandwidth
The M1 Max provides a maximum of 400 GB/s of memory bandwidth. This figure is twice that of the M1 Pro. Also, the 400 GB/s memory bandwidth is almost six times that of the M1. Moreover, M1 Max supports unified memory of up to 64 GB.
To provide excellent memory bandwidth, M1 Max is equipped with the latest media engines with ProRes accelerators which are purposely for pro video processing. Owing to its supreme performance, the M1 Max proves to be the greatest powerful chip designed for Pro notebooks.
Apple M1 Max Battery Life
The battery life performance of the Apple M1 Max is quite identical to that of the MacBook M1 Pro series laptops (16-inch). This implies that Apple M1 Max can last for a maximum of 21 hours even when you do media playback. Its battery life is up to 14 hours when you perform Internet surfing.
