Despite Apple’s claims and graphs, the new M1 Ultra chip isn’t able to outperform Nvidia’s RTX 3090 in terms of GPU performance, according to benchmark testing conducted by the edge.

When the ‌M1‌ Ultra was introduced, Apple shared a chart in which the new chip outperformed the “best discrete GPU” in “relative performance,” without detailing what tests were done to achieve those results. Apple has shown that the ‌M1‌ Ultra outperforms the RTX 3090 at a certain power level, but Apple doesn’t share the whole picture with its limited graphic.

the edge I decided to pit the ‌M1‌ Ultra against the Nvidia RTX 3090 using our Geekbench 5 graphics tests, and it’s no surprise that it couldn’t match an Nvidia chip when that chip was running at full power. The Mac Studio outperformed the 16-core Mac Pro, but the performance was about half that of the RTX 3090.

But it seems that Apple simply isn’t showing off the full performance of the competitor it’s chasing here.

It’s kind of debatable because because your electric car can use significantly less fuel when driving at 80 mph than a Lamborghini, it has a better engine — not to mention the fact that the Lambo can still go twice as fast.

The ‌M1‌ Ultra is impressive otherwise, and it’s not clear why Apple is focusing on this particular benchmark as it is somewhat misleading to customers as it doesn’t take into account the full range of the Nvidia chip.
