Is Apple’s M1 Ultra more powerful than NVIDIA RTX 3090?

Apple’s M1 Ultra that was announced with the Mac Studio may not be as powerful as strongly claimed by Apple, tech blog Ubergizmreported on Friday.

Apple made bold claims when they disclosed a new version of the M1 chipset called M1 Ultra. 

M1 Ultra is a combination of two M1 Max chipsets. Apple called this the ‘UltraFusion’ technology.

They claimed during the presentation that the graphic performance of the new chipset will be far more efficient than the “the highest-end discrete GPU”. Currently, NVIDIA’s RTX 3090 holds that title. 

The reviews and tests that were done by The Verge, however, show different results.

Tests using different benchmarks and apps show that the M1 Ultra graphics are not as great as claimed especially compared to RTX 3090. 

One example would be the scores achieved after using the Geekbench 5 Compute. While M1 Ultra managed to score 83,121, RTX 3090 topped the former with a stark difference of 215,034.

Tests on games showed that the RTX 3090 could get 142 fps at 1080p resolution whereas M1 Ultra could not go above 108 fps.

While M1 Ultra still remains a good performer, these tests and their results should be considered while investing in the new Mac Studio.

The conflict between Jamaat-ul-Ahrar and the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has intensified, with a violent altercation taking place on the evenings of February 15 and 16.

A top Jamaat-ul-Ahrar commander known as Qari Ismail or Ziaur Rahman was critically injured in this battle during a lethal attack in the Lala Pul neighborhood of District Loralai.

The confrontation between rival factions Target Killing and Dharo is part of an ongoing battle, other Jamaat-ul-Ahrar members have verified. Originating from the Khyber area of KP, Qari Ismail has been a well-known leader for the last ten years.

These commanders have killed civilians and law enforcement personnel in terrorist assaults in Punjab and Peshawar. Following the killing of Jamaat-ul-Ahrar leader Omar Khalid Khorasani in August 2022, tensions between the group and the TTP arose.

Notably, disputes have also emerged as a result of the TTP’s central committee, headed by Mohsin Wazir and backed by Muhassud Wali, removing two commanders connected to Jamaat-ul-Ahrar from ministerial positions. Tensions in the Khyber area have escalated to the brink of war as both terrorist organizations compete for dominance.

The Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA) has appealed to NEPRA to raise the price of energy by Rs7.13 per unit starting next month.

The rise will cost customers who are already suffering from inflation an extra Rs66.77 billion if NEPRA approves the demand.

According to the CPPA’s appeal, electricity distribution firms received 7.93 billion units in January 2024.

On February 23, Nepra will consider the petition. Customers who are on Lifeline KE will not be able to use the updated pricing.

In light of the monthly fuel adjustment (MFA), it is relevant to note that on January 31, the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) raised the power rate by Rs5.63 per unit.

Following the conclusion of the NEPRA hearing on the Central Power Purchasing Agency’s (CPPA) appeal for a fuel monthly adjustment that will increase the power rate by Rs5.63 per unit for December 2023, the verdict was made public.
