It shows good problem solving skills, application of DS/Algos.

TIL: Why are M1 Macs so fast? 🤔

Quick, bite-sized thread that answers the above question. Based on my notes from reading: debugger.medium.com/why-is-apples-…

Thread 🧵👇 as per the benchmarks, M1 is beating almost every available processor in the market.

Stats (from Apple):
- 3.5x faster CPU perf (vs i7 Mac Air)
- 3x CPU perf / watt
- 2x faster GPU
- 15x faster ML (vs i3 Mac)

(will link benchmarks at the end)
