Processor: Intel. As of Feb 2022. Intel Core i7-1280P, Core i7-1265U, Core-11980HK and Core i7-1195G7 performance is estimated based on measurements with Intel internal reference platforms. AMD Ryzen 7 5800U performance is estimated based on measurements on a Lenovo Yoga 14C laptop. Apple M1 performance is estimated based on measurements on Apple MacBook Air 16GB RAM Model A2337. Apple M1 Pro performance is estimated based on measurements on Apple MacBook Pro 14" 16GB RAM Model A2442 and other Apple platforms with 32GB memory. The metric used is the geometric mean of an assumed n-copy SPECrate baseline run of the C/C++ integer benchmarks in SPEC CPU 2017 (see: http://www.spec.org/cpu2017/). Current available compiler estimated for each processor. See www.intel.com/PerformanceIndex for additional workload and configuration details. Results may vary.
