Geekbench 5 benchmark test shows that Apple silicon MAC device with M1 chipset can run windows on ARM faster than Microsoft's new surface Pro X.Earlier, developer Alexander Graf has successfully launched windows 10 in the open source QEMU virtual machine through a custom patch. After bypassing the trouble of driving, this scheme still has excellent performance.
Thanks to the QEMU virtualized patch shared by Alexander Graf, this work has attracted more people to objectively evaluate its actual performance, and the results confirm it againAppleM1 chipset is significantly ahead of Qualcomm's competitors.
Taking geekbench 5 as an example, the native single core / multi-core performance of Apple M1 device running MacOS is 1737 / 7549.
For reference, the x86 version of geekbench 4 runs on the surface Pro x into single core 2019 / multi-core 6646.
The result of arm virtualization is single core 2553 / multi-core 8719, which makes surface Pro X and multi-core 8719 more efficientMacBookThe x86 applications running on are eclipsed.
To sum up, Apple has done a lot of work on the hardware and software optimization of M1, especially the MacOS system. But if the virtual solution of windows 10 can be further improved, it will be a good x86 application solution.
