However, this will give you a good idea of what Apple’s best has to offer compared to one of the Windows best! In this case that would be Dell computers and a big surprise in the last part of this series!

Passmark CPU (Single-Core): 3740 for Apple M1 and 3114 for i7–11800H! Apple M1 crushed the i7–11800H in this benchmark test!
Geekbench 5 (Single-Core): 1735 for Apple M1 and 1514 for i7–11800H! Apple M1 crushed the i7–11800H yet again!
Cinebench R23 (Multi-Core): 12113 for i7–11800H and only 7726 for Apple M1! Intel i7–11800H comes swinging and beats down poor Apple M1!
Passmark CPU (Multi-Core): 21247 for i7–11800H and only 14619 for Apple M1! Intel i7–11800H comes swinging again and beats down Apple M1 to the ground and now these two powerhouses are neck in neck, ladies, and gentlemen!

Winner: Apple M1 Chip Data from NanoReview!


Winner: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050Ti 4GB VRAM (Dell XPS 15 Touch)

Data from Notebook Check! Apple M1 Chip was getting 100% on most Benchmarks as an average score but NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050Ti 4GB VRAM Crushed the Apple M1 Chip by getting an average Benchmark test of 165%

Memory: Is a Tie with both maxing out on 16GB but if I had to choose it will be Apple M1 because you can’t beat unified RAM it pretty much has less latency than DDR4 RAMs.

Storage: Apple M1 crushes the Dell because you get 2TB for Apple and only 512GB for Dell!

Display: Dell wins on this one cause of the OLED display! OLED is still way better than Retina with True Tone.

Keyboard: Tie both have fingerprint scanners and are backlit. But if I had to choose hands down Apple Magic Keyboard best typing feel!

What do you choose! Feel free to leave a comment below!
