Apple‘s new first-gen M1 chip is proving to blow some of Intel‘s chips completely out of the water. Several reports are comparing Apple’s iPad Pro (which uses the M1) to that of older Intel Core i9-powered MacBook Pros, like the 16-inch model.

According to Geekbench 5‘s data, the M1 iPad Pro had a multi-core score of 7,284, while the Core i9 16-inch MacBook Pro scored 6,845. The M1 MacBook Air is even faster: 7,378. As for performance in graphics, the M1 iPad Pro was reported to be 71 percent faster than the previous-gen iPad Pro with Apple’s A12Z chip, roughly equalling the performance of M1 Macs.

The new M1 iPad Pro became available to order from April 30. Its official launch remains May 21.

In case you missed it, Apple’s new MacBook Airs may come in a variety of colors.
