The GPU on the Apple M1 is about as powerful as the NVIDIA GeForce 1050Ti
Apple has launched a new line of Macs including the MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro and Mac mini equipped with the M1 processor.
Apple M1 has 8 cores including 4 high-performance cores and 4 energy-efficient cores. Comes with an 8-core GPU for 2.6 TFLOPs computation. However, the company did not provide any evidence of GPU performance on the M1 compared to competitors and only gave us rather vague numbers such as “3x faster”.

Now, we have seen the first Apple M1 benchmark on GFXBench 5.0. It is quite interesting that the GPU on the M1 has the same performance as the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.
At the moment, the most powerful integrated GPU on the market today is the Xe Graphics on the Intel Tiger Lake chip. Even so, this GPU from Intel is only on par with the GeForce MX350, for significantly less performance than the GTX 1050 Ti. So Apple’s claim that the M1 has the world’s most powerful integrated GPU is plausible.
These are scores based on pre-used reviewer devices and not on official commercial versions. But from the table above we can see that the GPU on the M1 is much more powerful than the integrated GPUs on the AMD Ryzen 4000 (Radeon Vega 8), Intel Tiger Lake (Iris Xe) and the 10th and 11th generation Intel CPUs on the MacBook Old Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini.
