FP32 Performance (Single-precision TFLOPS) - FP32 (TFLOPS)

The theoretical computing power of the graphics card with single precision (32 bit) in TFLOPS. TFLOPS indicates how many trillion FP32 floating point operations the graphics card (GPU) can perform per second. The larger this number, the faster the graphics card is.

More benchmarks for
Apple Mac mini M1 (2020)

In order to determine the performance of a computer or a component in it, so-called "benchmarks" are carried out. The benchmark software carries out special calculations and measures the time it takes for the computer to complete the calculations. Since the benchmarks always run the same, the performance of several computers can be reliably compared with one another.

For this we use so-called theoretical or synthetic benchmarks such as Geekbench or Cinebench, as these support both x86 and ARM instruction sets in the current versions. We guarantee real comparability of the results by ensuring that the benchmarks are executed identically and correctly as well as by the condition of the system.

We currently use the following benchmarks to assess the performance of the products listed on our website:
