Apple's M1 CPU single core performance (nearly?) beating Zen3 :-O

I'll say it once again: __no real workload tests shown__ only some marketing bs.
Let's agree to disagree. SpecInt2006 isn't marketing bs. Most of the SpecInt2006 A14 numbers WERE indeed estimated, but given AnandTech superior previous accuracy in their benchmark estimations, I tend to think these would be very close real ones.
Also, GeekBench6 Single thread was run (not estimated) and nearly beat Ryzen 9 5950X. Again A14 tested was 5W SoC. Power/Performance they are already ahead of Intel (based on SpecInt2006).
I am NOT saying that we should all take it for granted, but these early numbers indicate that real numbers look extremely promising.

Will be interesting to see those number verified with actual M1 test by anandtech and others. They do more with less resource requirement in the mobile market now as the Anandtech summarized. Also interested to see where they go next and how the expand thier silicon into the iMac and Mac Pro desktop market. Nice to see them push AMD and others. Intellectual Competition is a good thing, even if DIYers are unlikely to directly benefit.

AFAIK Apple leans towards enforcing OS X. Even if this would be possible, there will be no graphics driver/name every proprietary driver.
So if it doesn't run the software I's not really useful, no matter how fast it is.
