Apple's M1 processor has been sighted in PassMark benchmarking software, compared to the Intel Core i7-11700K the single-core performance crown seems to go to Apple.
The chart is led by the Intel Core i9-11900K with 3,741 points, but it is followed by the Apple M1 with 3,550 points, beating the i7-11700K which is just behind with 3,542 points.
Here's the remarkable thing, the i7-11700K has a TDP of 125W, the M1 15W for. Of course, in multi-core performance the story is very different since we are comparing 8 high-performance cores for Intel versus a combination of 4 high-performance cores + 4 low-power cores for the M1 (BIG.little). The Apple chip runs at 3.20 GHz.
