The new Apple M1 Ultra SoC literally has two M1 Max SoCs combined with Apple’s all-new UltraFusion – UltraFusion is an innovative packaging architecture that interconnects the die of each M1 Max chip to create a single, monster Apple M1 Ultra SoC – impressive to see.
Inside, the M1 Ultra packs a whopping 114 billion transistors (that’s 114,000,000,000), which is the most ever recorded in a personal chip. Apple has up to 128GB of high-bandwidth, low-latency unified memory that sits alongside a 20-core CPU, 64-core GPU, and 32-core neural engine.
Johny Srouji, senior vice president of hardware technologies at Apple explains: “M1 Ultra is another game changer for Apple silicon that will once again shock the PC industry. By connecting two M1 Max dies to our UltraFusion packaging architecture, we are able to scale Apple silicon to unprecedented new heights. With its powerful CPU, massive GPU, incredible Neural Engine, ProRes hardware acceleration, and huge amount of unified memory, M1 Ultra completes the M1 family as the world’s most powerful and high-performance chip for a personal computer.“.
