Apple M1 Chip Specs and Performance

I know you guys don't care too much about Apple stuff but Tom's Hardware has the lowdown on the Apple M1 chip.

What does Apple’s new Arm-based chip have that Intel’s x86 architecture doesn’t? Well, it uses a 5nm process, for one. By comparison, even Intel’s 7nm process isn’t expected to start hitting its products until at least 2022. Apple's CPU has 8 cores, which would typically require you to step up to Intel's H-series product stack to get on mobile chips.
