Apple M3 Max Benchmark Results Surface Online

Ever since Apple started using their in-house chips for their Mac and iPad lineups, things have been going fascinating for them for the most part. A couple of days ago, Apple unveiled its latest M3 series of chips at the Scary Fast event.

And now, benchmark scores of the M3 Max chip have become available online. The M3 Max is the highest-end chip in the series at the moment. The other two currently available are the M3 and the M3 Pro.

Geekbench Scores of the M3 Max Chip

According to a Geekbench listing, the M3 Max chip scores over 3000 points in the single-threaded tests, as per the results. This is a slight jump compared to last year’s M2 Max, which scored around 2800 points.

As for the multi-threaded tests, the M3 Max manages to score a whopping 21000 points. This is a massive leap from the M2 Max, which maxes out at about 14500 points. Also, the M3 Max’s scores are similar to the M2 Ultra, which can also score over 21000 points. All these scores are within the reasonable range of Apple’s claims. Although these results are based on very new machines, they give a rough idea of how the M3 line of chips will perform.

Another thing to note here is that the M3 Max was tested on the 16-inch MacBook Pro with a 16-core chip, according to the listing on Geekbench. This particular model starts at $3499.

About the M3 Max Chip

The M3 lineup of chips is based on TSMC’s 3nm process. The M3 Max, in particular, can be configured with up to 16 CPU cores, 40 CPU cores, and 128GB of unified memory or RAM.

Of the 16 CPU cores, 12 are performance cores, and 4 are efficiency cores. You can also go up to 8TB of internal storage. Another feature of the M3 Max is that it can power up to four external monitors.

Apple claims that the M3 Max is 11 times faster than Intel Core i9-based machines, per their testing. They also claim up to 2.5 times better performance than the M1 Max. These claims are yet to be tested in real-world performance, though the initial scores look promising.
