The performance boost comes courtesy of Apple’s M1 chip, the first system-on-chip designed by Apple for its Mac lineup. To quickly summarize: The M1 is based on 5-nanometer chip architecture, sports an 8-core CPU, an 8-core GPU (unless you’re buying the base model MacBook Air, in which case you get a 7-core GPU instead), and a 16-core Neural Engine capable of 11 trillion operations per second. That means apps and tasks that rely on machine learning are now much faster than before.
