Apple M1 iGPU Trades Blows w/ the NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti in Benchmarks

According to the GFXBench 5.0 score of the Apple M1 integrated graphics, it’s nearly as capable as NVIDIA’s desktop-grade GeForce GTX 1050 Ti dGPU. Although this is a synthetic benchmark and not representative of actual gaming performance which will be much lower for the M1, it’s still an indication of its raw graphics power.

It just goes on to show how far Apple has come with its own custom Arm-based designs while the x86 had been stuck in a loop, courtesy of Intel’s 10nm stalls. Unfortunately, the move to the Arm design will only make gaming support on Macs worse than ever before, as most games are designed for x86 based architectures, and installing Windows via Boot Camp will also yield unfavorable results.
