Apple today unveiled the M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max, three CPUs with “groundbreaking” innovations, at the Scary Fast event. These are the first personal computer chips manufactured with the cutting-edge 3-nanometer process technology, which increases speed and efficiency by enabling the packing of more transistors into a smaller area.
According to Apple, the next-generation GPU included in the M3 family of chips is quicker, more efficient, and incorporates a novel technology known as dynamic caching.
Additionally, new rendering features have been added to Mac for the first time, such as mesh shading and hardware-accelerated ray tracing. The CPU performance cores and efficiency cores are 30% and 50% faster than those in the M1 series of chips, respectively, and rendering rates are now up to 2.5 times quicker.
AV1 decoding functionality has been added to a new media engine to deliver better and more efficient video experiences from streaming services.
