The new all-in-one iMac computers with the Apple M1 single-chip system will begin shipping to customers next week, and so far, the Geekbench test results have surfaced on the web.
Unsurprisingly, the Apple M1-powered iMac performs roughly the same as the Apple M1-powered MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac mini. The average score is 1724 in single-threaded mode, 7453 when using all cores.
The 24-inch iMac with the Apple M1 significantly outperforms the 2019 21.5-inch iMac with an Intel processor, which scored 1109 points in single-threaded mode and 6014 points on all cores. It turns out that the new iMac is faster than the old one by 56 and 24% in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively.
The 27-inch iMac with 10th Gen Intel Comet Lake scores 1247 and 9002, respectively. It turns out that the new iMac is 38% faster in single-threaded mode, but inferior to 25% in multi-core mode.
Apple is reportedly working on more powerful proprietary Apple SoCs for desktops. In the future, the company will update the 27-inch iMac with a new model with its own SoC.
