Interesting specs (supplied by Apple :oops:) I guess that remains to be seen.
What is notable is the M1 chip IS Not backwardly compatible with code written for the Intel CPUs. The big question becomes where are these chips being made. While a 5-nanometer wafer thickness seems like no big deal, oh yes it is. That's what held back AMD for years. The thicker the wafer the hotter it runs and the more power it consumes. Intel is currently producing a 10-nanometer wafer with plans to move to a 7-nanometer process. This is a very big deal, ask AMD they now produce some 7-nanometer wafers.
The M1 is an extremely complicated chip that has more on-board processes than any current CPU. It sounds like a production disaster. Let's see if Apple pulls this off and the price tag attached to these systems. Worthy of note the Apple/Intel laptops will continue to be offered so what does that mean?
