Apple’s M1 chip already proved that it has a lot of power in last week’s benchmark tests. Now, another benchmark was run – but this time the benchmark software ran as an x86 version under Rosetta 2 emulation on a MacBook Air. Despite emulation, the device achieves more points than other Macs that run the benchmark natively. The new benchmark test used the new MacBook Air with M1 chip and 8 GB of RAM, Macrumors reports. Instead of the natively running version of Geekbench 5, an x86 architecture was emulated this time so that the standard version of the benchmark can run on the MacBook Air. This is the same Geekbench software that was used to create the Intel Mac benchmarks. The emulation does slow down the performance of the M1 chip a bit, but the MacBook Air still easily outperforms its Intel chip siblings.

Faster than an iMac with Core i9 despite emulation.

fullscreen Still faster than Intel CPUs despite emulation: Apple’s M1 chip. Image: © Macrumors 2020 The tested MacBook Air scores 1,313 points in the emulated Geekbench 5 test in the single-core test and 5,888 points in the multi-core test. Thus, the device with the M1 chip is above the single-core scores of all iMacs and MacBook Pros with Intel chips. Even the 27-inch iMac with Intel Core i9-10910, which offers a maximum clock rate of 3.6 GHz, has to admit defeat to the MacBook with M1 chip once again. However, the result of 1,313 vs. 1,251 points is tighter than in the previous benchmarks. MacBook Air M1 Buy now at

New results dispel last doubts about the M1 chip

The new results with emulated benchmark are especially good news for users who are worried about not being able to use all apps on Apple’s new processor architecture. That’s because not all major apps are currently able to run natively on the M1 Macs and have to be emulated by Rosetta 2. As the new benchmark shows, the emulation of the x86 architecture is quite efficient. When comparing the scores of the MacBook Air’s native and emulated benchmarks (single-core: 1,687 vs. 1,313, multi-core: 7,433 vs. 5,888), it is noticeable that 78 to 79 percent of the processor’s performance can still be retrieved with the emulation. Users do not have to worry that apps like Office, for example, which do not yet have a native version for the M1 chip, do not run at all or only slowly on the new devices. And those who are not satisfied with 80 percent efficiency in the emulation can wait for the native app versions, which Apple wants to deliver bit by bit. Valorant will also be native on the Mac. | © Riot Games Valorant on the Mac – impossible for a long time, now reality. With Apple’s Boot Camp software, the shooter will run on your Mac!
