    And finally, we can see how much more efficient M2 is over Zen when they’re both 5nm chips.

    No more excuses for AMD fanboys.
  • lemurbutton - Monday, August 29, 2022 - link

    Look for 3-5x the power required for Zen4 to achieve the same level of performance as the M2.
  • cosmotic - Monday, August 29, 2022 - link

    Where are you looking?
  • Hulk - Monday, August 29, 2022 - link

    What does one do with and "M2?"
  • Hulk - Monday, August 29, 2022 - link

    Is is like the M5 that killed all those innocent people?
  • emn13 - Monday, August 29, 2022 - link

    Die area is also a factor in this tradeoff.
  • gruffi - Thursday, September 1, 2022 - link

    You forgot . before 3 and 5. ^^ M2 isn't a big improvement over M1. And even 6nm Zen 3 based Rembrandt trades blows with M1 under full load. If Zen 4 improves power efficiency by 75% at 65W TDP it will extremely impressive. M2 won't beat that, still being a lot more expensive.

    Replying to yourself. Stay classy.

    To anyone not familiar, lemurbutton is a well-known troll around here.
  • flyingpants265 - Monday, August 29, 2022 - link

    That's not an excuse at all. Obviously you would compare 2 different architectures on the same process node. You wouldn't compare Zen on 14nm Vs 5nm, so...

    M2 may well be better, but I'm not sure why does it matter since most people are not going to be using Apple regardless.
  • DannyH246 - Monday, August 29, 2022 - link

    What’s your point exactly? Firstly they’re two different architectures and we all know that ARM was designed with low power in mind. Secondly it’s like comparing apples to oranges because if you WANT an M2 then you have to have MacOS and let’s face it nobody wants that. So it’s a useless comparison. If you want x86 your choice is AMD or Intel, Apple doesn’t even feature.
