The chip has a total of 16 billion transistors, uses a 5nm process technology, and has an 8-core GPU, including 4 large cores and 4 high-performance small cores. In other configurations, the M1 chip integrates up to 16GB of high-speed memory, and up to 2TB of large-capacity solid-state hard drives are optional.
