The first benchmark of Apple's new M1 Ultra chip has surfaced on Geekbench, and it's indeed a beast.

During this morning's keynote, Apple said that the M1 Ultra would offer up to 60% more performance than a Mac Pro powered by a 28-core Intel Xeon processor (which costs over S$70k when fully specced). And these leaked results lend credence to the claim.

As you can see, single-core performance was 1,793 while multi-core performance was 24,055. On the same benchmark, the highest-end Mac Pro with a 28-core Xeon processor would manage 1,152 and 19,951 respectively.

This means the M1 Ultra single-core performance is 55.6% better and its multi-core performance is 20.5% better.

Obviously, this is just a single benchmark, but it's promising nonetheless. It will be interesting to see just how fast Apple's latest chip is.
