Apple announces M1 Ultra with 20-core CPU and 64-core GPU. Apple today unveiled it will launch the M1 Ultra, its most powerful custom processor built on ARM specifically for the new Mac Studio desktop computer. It is the M1 Ultra is essentially two M1 Max chips connected together with a brand-new interconnect design known as Apple is calling UltraFusion.
It uses a silicon interposer that offers 2.5TB/s of speed. This decreases bandwidth and latency issues in comparison to having two separate chips linked to the motherboard. As it basically doubles the power that M1 Max, the M1 Max, the M1 Ultra includes a 20-core processor as well as a 64-core GPU and 32-core Neural Engine and all are double the capacity of M1 Max. M1 Max.
Like every year, Apple has some performance figures to ponder. Its M1 Ultra claims to offer an increase of 90% in performance for the same amount of power that the Intel Core i9-12900K. The M1 Ultra is able to match Intel’s peak performance while using only 100W less. It is also more efficient than the M1 Ultra is also quite just as powerful as the 12900K for multi-threaded tasks. However, Apple did not provide a specific number of specific tasks.

Regarding GPU performance the 64-core model uses 200W less power than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 at its highest performance, while superior to that Nvidia card. Also, Apple didn’t specify under what conditions it was able to achieve. The memory bandwidth of M1 Ultra M1 Ultra is also higher than the previous models, reaching 800GB/s. It is also faster than previous models. M1 Ultra can be configured with up to 128GB of unidirectional memory.
Like the other M1 variants, this storage capacity is accessible for both CPU and the GPU. Because of the doubled size that of the engine block it is possible to use the M1 Ultra can also do quite a few crazy things in the field of media decoding. For instance, it is capable of playing back for up to 18 streamings of ProRes 8K 422 video simultaneously.
It also supports up to five displays, and four of them could be the 6K Professional Display XDR together with the fifth display that is 4K. In terms of software it is possible to use the M1 Ultra will appear to applications as a single processor meaning that all programs will be able to run and scale themselves without the need to be changed. Additionally, macOS has been designed to adapt to the hardware, which means it will automatically benefit from the enhanced performance from the chipset.
