mknelson said:I don't recall which site it was off of (read on Flipboard) but I read an article over breakfast where they were benchmarking Premiere Pro and comparing to various PC configurations with discrete GPUs. They seemed impressed by the CPU performance, but underwhelmed by the GPU performance - although if you read it closely it wasn't far off the PC discrete GPU performance.
DaVinci seems to have done a better job of optimizing for the M1/Metal combo.
I still don’t understand why they were disappointed about the GPU when it was able to almost match the performance of some of the most powerful Nvidia laptop graphics cards. And Apple didn’t even say that its GPU was the best one for a laptop, so they couldn’t exactly expect it to surpass everything out there.
And another thing is that Premiere Pro is not exactly the most optimised application for the Mac. For years it has worked better on Windows.
KITA said:The Apple M1 scores ~18,000 in OpenCL (1) and ~20,000 in Metal (2) on Geekbench.
The Macbook Pro with M1 Max 32 core scored ~60,000 in OpenCL (3) on Geekbench. The ~68,000 Metal score above is likely the 32 core version as well.
The RTX 3080 scores much higher than 90,000. A 130W version of the RTX 3080 in a laptop scores ~120,000 in OpenCL (4) on Geekbench.
Apple used a 165W version of the RTX 3080 in their comparison:
A more regular OpenCL score should be around 19,500, and that means a ratio of 3.08 vs the M1 Max score,
Also, M1 Pro OpenCL score is 38,400, and that means a ratio of 2.
These two results makes it extremely unlikely that the M1 Max score is for a 32-core GPU.
