Ryzen 9 6900HS vs Apple M1 Pro – 14” Laptop CPU Comparison!

I’m going to reveal you just how AMD’s brand-new Ryzen 6000 processor contrasts versus Apple’s M1 Pro! These are the main differences in between these cpus. Apple’s M1 Pro is available with 8 and also 10 core choices, but I have actually obtained the greater 10 core below which has 8 efficiency as well as 2 efficiency cores. The Ryzen 9 6900HS on the various other hand is an 8 core 16 string part, so less cores but even more threads and it’s additionally got much less cache. To do this testing I have actually got Apple’s MacBook Pro 16 with the M1 Pro, a $2500 USD equipment, and also the ROG Zephyrus G14 from ASUS with AMD’s Ryzen 9 6900HS, a smaller sized and also fairly less costly device at around $1900 USD, nonetheless you can get the same CPU however with a lower GPU than my setup for $250 less. Although I have actually evaluated the M1 Pro in the bigger MacBook Pro 16, the exact very same chip is also readily available in the smaller MacBook Pro 14, and Max Tech has actually received this video clip here that there’s essentially no distinction between an M1 Pro in a MacBook 14 as well as a MacBook Pro 16, so although I took place to have the bigger MacBook Pro 16, we can relatively treat this as if it was a 14″ laptop computer for a reasonable comparison versus our 14″ G14.

Temperature levels varied in between them when running a multi threaded CPU criteria with some cores being much hotter than others. To be fair, these aren’t directly similar as results rely on where sensors remain in the chip as well as exactly how software program reports them, however it offers us a harsh idea that when in a sustained heavy workload, both chips can run over 90 levels Celsius. Currently hold on simply a moment, although both laptop computers do run fairly warm, we need to have a pay attention to the follower noise distinction. Now simply full disclosure, while there most likely won’t be efficiency differences in between the MacBook Pro 16 as well as MacBook Pro 14, I would expect there to be some thermal distinctions.
For instance individuals have actually reported that the MacBook Pro 14 keep up greater follower rate, but still despite having that distinction it’s means quieter than the G14. The MacBook was running considerably quieter, and that’s since it’s attracting much less power from the wall, as shown here. In the Cinebench R23 multi core benchmark, the Ryzen 9 6900HS laptop was making use of 118% more wattage from the wall

surface, a crazy distinction. Well, I suppose it’s just crazy if Ryzen does not also offer us a corresponding efficiency uplift to make that higher power draw rewarding, so let’s look and also see just how both chips do in different applications. Cinebench is simply a great method to swiftly obtain a harsh idea of what to expect in regards to both single and also multi threaded efficiency – don’t fret we’ll cover more useful work following. The single core rating was simply 4% higher with Ryzen in this test, while the multi core rating had a larger 11% lead. Ryzen in the g14 was technically winning, but for 118% more power? The M1 chip is plainly a lot more power reliable. We could of training course limitation the power to the Ryzen chip with software application, something we can not do to the M1 Pro, however I made a decision to simply run both to the very best of their capability below. Efficiency on battery power is where points continue to obtain remarkable for Apple. the Ryzen 9 6900HS still has the lead here as far as the rating is concerned, the M1 Pro is basically racking up the same regardless of whether or not it’s connected right into power. The AMD maker reduced by around 1000 points in the multi core rating, which to be reasonable, is much less than we ‘d see from an Intel based laptop, but yeah compared to AMD, M1 Pro is clearly more power effective. Alright back to comparing to both linked into power for max performance. Adobe Premiere is a much more

useful video clip editing examination and was examined with the Puget Solutions benchmark. Adobe has an M1 native version of Best for MacOS, so this was used for ideal performance on the MacBook Pro. The M1 Pro was reaching a 75% higher score in this test, not also surprising as usually I do not discover AMD’s Radeon graphics to do too well here. This test utilizes both the CPU and also the GPU, and you could suggest that as the 6900HS has its own integrated in graphics it’s not fair to include the discrete RX 6800S graphics. I have actually additionally included arise from just the Ryzen incorporated graphics so you can see the difference, and these are even worse. Those were the total test ratings, we can pierce down right into details aspects like exporting as an example. In regards to actually exporting a video task, the 6900HS wasn’t as well far behind the M1 Pro, but again if you don’t count the Radeon 6800S distinct graphics in the G14 after that AMD is better behind. The real-time playback scores were much further ahead on the M1 Pro, it’s not even a competitors at this factor, so expect a smoother video clip editing and enhancing experience on the MacBook. The differences in the effects rack up weren’t as big, but still an easy win for the MacBook below. I’ve also evaluated DaVinci Resolve. Fix itself does have an M1 Native version for MacOS, however the Puget Systems standard doesn’t presently support it, so I have actually done my very own video export using the YouTube 4K preset. I also had not been able to run the test with just the integrated graphics, so this is more like a straight contrast in between the G14 as well as MacBook as opposed to

simply the CPUs because the GPUs are being utilized. Anyhow the 6900HS system was finishing the task 18% faster. AMD’s 6900HS had the ability to finish my Handbrake video clip transcode test 83% faster. Although there is an M1 indigenous version of Handbrake, which I used for this test, I believe handbrake is able to take benefit of AVX processor directions to complete the job much faster. Points went entirely the various other way in the LLVM collection test with the M1 Pro completing this task 77% faster than Ryzen. This was among the biggest distinctions in favor of the MacBook out of all applications tested. Maybe there’s a good reason so several designers utilize it. 7-Zip was utilized to test compression as well as decompression. Both were incredibly close together when it pertained to compression rate, nonetheless Ryzen had a substantial lead in terms of decompression in spite of this version of 7-Zip having an indigenous M1 alternative. Blender was checked with the most up to date 3.1 version which has indigenous M1 support too.
Large many thanks to Tim at Equipment Unboxed for supplying me the updated information, as a current Blender upgrade stopped me from relatively contrasting the 6900HS or else. The 6900HS was 16% quicker in the Classroom as well as Junkshop examinations, however had a much smaller lead in the Beast examination. With the V-Ray standard we begin

obtaining into applications that don’t yet have complete indigenous M1 support. While running the benchmark I verified that it was running using the Rosetta 2 emulation layer, so there could possibly be an efficiency improvement in future if this test is upgraded with M1 support. I think you could suggest this isn’t reasonable, yet the fact is it’s the genuine existing state of M1 – not all applications have been updated for ideal performance. This is most likely adding to the 6900HS scoring 37% greater. The corona renderer criteria also runs via Rosetta 2 with no indigenous M1 version, which is possibly in component why the Ryzen laptop was able to finish the task 43% faster than the MacBook. VeraCrypt was made use of to evaluate AES security and also decryption and is a little an odd one. there is in fact indigenous M1 assistance for this variation of the software program, it might not be taking benefit of hardware sped up AES, which would certainly discuss why Ryzen is significantly faster. With x86 cpus, the AES-NI direction set can be leveraged to enhance efficiency. Honestly I’m not certain what exists right here for M1, yet in any kind of situation the basic truth is that right now at the time of evaluating the most recent version of VeraCrypt plainly can not use any similar feature. CrossMark is a cross-platform benchmark that aims to determine total system efficiency and also responsiveness. This examination has an indigenous M1 version for MacOS, and I located the 6900HS to rack up 10% higher than the M1 Pro. This examination has 3 below scores titled productivity, creativity as well as responsiveness, which seem a little bit approximate as I don’t really know what they

check. Take the responsiveness rating for instance, Ryzen is 34% ahead, does this imply it’s 34% more receptive? Possibly not, provided I would certainly claim my experience using MacOS felt smoother for the most part contrasted to Windows 11, but more number suggests extra better right? If I use the Speedometer standard which runs in the internet browser to examine the responsiveness of internet applications and also scripts, after balancing 5 examination runs the MacBook scored 21% greater with Safari contrasted to Ryzen with Google Chrome. Mentioning much less helpful standards (with relates to to Crossmark that is), I left Geekbench till later on due to the fact that I simply don’t rely upon the results, yet a few of you ask for it as well as a great deal of other contrasts essentially just rely upon it. This test additionally has a native M1 variation, and also in the workloads run by this test, the M1 Pro was 21% greater in the multi threaded examination. Quite excellent offered the lower thread count. Or Else the M1 Pro was additionally scoring 8% higher in the single core examination. These are the distinctions in all of the applications simply checked. The greatest difference was AES encryption and also decryption right up the top for the reasons reviewed earlier. Or else LLVM compilation had a great lead on the M1 Pro, as did Adobe Premiere. The Adobe Premiere result here is even more of a contrast between the G14 and also MacBook as I’ve used its greater

score with the 6800S energetic, the M1 Pro would be even additionally ahead if we’re just comparing it to the Radeon iGPU. Out of these certain examinations, the Ryzen 9 6900HS is over 82% faster, but if we choose not to consider those huge AES outliers then we’re rather looking at AMD having to do with 10% faster than the M1 Pro in the remainder of the tests. This naturally just uses to this precise option of workloads as well as isn’t a basic statement as there are an arbitrary number of both single and multi threaded tests here, however no matter it suffices to show you that results truly rely on the specific work. Since stated, we obviously can not fail to remember the differences kept in mind earlier, like the MacBook utilizing much less power, running quieter and also still obtaining full efficiency on battery. It does set you back more than the G14 however, however eventually the selection for you depends upon the jobs you prepare on utilizing the device for and to some level your choice of either Windows or Linux, or MacOS. If you intend on playing a bunch of ready example after that I ‘d certainly be leaning towards the G14 due to the fact that it’s simply objectively mosting likely to be a better experience. Have a look at this video clip next to see just how Apple’s M1 Pro compares versus Intel’s 12th gen laptop CPUs. The difference is a lot bigger than what we have actually seen below as Intel goes up to 14 cores 20 threads this generation, so I’ll see you in that one next. Or else get subscribed for when Apple’s brand-new M2 chips are here and we obtain to do these comparisons all over once more!.
