Retain/Release an NSObject, M1 v.s. current gen Intel, by David Smith
fun fact: retaining and releasing an NSObject takes ~30 nanoseconds on current gen Intel, and ~6.5 nanoseconds on an M1
…and ~14 nanoseconds on an M1 emulating an Intel
(The price we pay for this is that certain kinds of multithreading bugs can remain dormant on Intel but become symptomatic on M1. Use Thread Sanitizer to test your apps!)
this further improvement is because uncontended acquire-release atomics are about the same speed as regular load/store on A14
1080p AV1 dav1d 软解，M1 v.s. i9-9980H, by VideoLan
M1 chips are very fast.
Full decode of AV1 sample Chimera in 1080p using dav1d:
- i9-9980H: 76/312/369fps
- MacMini M1: 79/354/346fps
(Numbers are SingleThread; 4 Frame Threads with 4 Tiles Threads; and finally 8 Frame Threads with 4 Tiles Threads)
Oh, and the M1 running the x86 code gives 168fps with 4+4 threads.
Around half-speed, which is very impressive for emulation.

Minecraft running on Apple Silicon without Rosetta2
Got Minecraft running on a MacBook Air running on Apple Silicon without Rosetta, I got MultiMC running with a build of Qt and then built LWJGL and dependencies for arm64. The JDK being used is the Azul Zulu JDK built for macOS arm64.
Performance is unbelievable. I'm getting well over 200fps average on a regular sized windows and ~100fps at 4k on an external display!
The laptop has no fans but doesn't even begin to get hot enough to cause any sort of throttling. Looking forwards to the official Minecraft port as this was mostly straightforward.

If you disable SIP, all you iOS apps will stop working on your M1
It‘s only affect iOS apps though
