Apps running on M1 chips can use both the efficiency cores and the performance cores at the same time. So do Geekbench.either that or M1 chip does not properly scale.
I vaguely remember hearing that e-cores are about 70% as powerful as a p-core... but when you run all p-cores, they won't run the same performance as a single p-core, and the average of 4 p-cores is not going to be the same as the average of 8 p-cores.Alright guys, I did the math.
Be A a performance core and B an efficiency core.
If the second statement is true :
- We know from the M1 benches that 4A + 4B = 7590
- The allegedly M1 Max benches says that 8A + 2B = 11542
2 x (8A + 2B) = 23084
12B = 23064 - 7590 = 15894
B = 1291
A = 606
Which means that a performance core is a little more than twice as powerful as the efficiency one.
It seems consistent with Apple's description of the M1
