There has been so much written about the technical specs and raw performance of Apple’s M1, particularly as compared to its Intel-based Mac counterparts but also Intel-based Windows PCs that it’s enough to make your head spin. But a chart with numbers only tells you so much. Real-world performance is often a little different, especially as new software is released that becomes more or less optimised for one platform vs another.
It’s that real-world performance that Chris and Jordan at DPReview TV look at in this video, which puts Jordan’s M1-based 24″ iMac against Chris’s Windows PC laptop to see how they perform for a variety of tasks. No benchmarking software that just presents a number, just the photo and video editing apps we all use on a daily basis to see how long it takes for the two to perform the same tasks.
