Architectural Differences

Here’s a look at the key differences. 

  1. Process NodesStarting with the nodes, the Core i7-1360P uses Intel’s custom 10nm node called Intel 7. On the other hand, Apple’s Silicon M2 chip uses TSMC’s enhanced 5nm node called N5P. So, Apple’s M2 CPU has the advantage here. 
  2. Core/Thread Counts: In terms of core/thread counts, the Core i7-1360P leads with 12 cores (4 P-cores and 8 E-cores) and 16 threads, while the Apple M2 has 8 cores (4 P-cores and 4 E-cores) and half the threads.
  3. Clock Speeds: The Apple M2 boasts a base frequency of 3.5GHz for P-cores and 2.4GHz for E-cores, while the Core i7-1360P operates at 2.2GHz (P-cores) and 1.6GHz (E-cores). Furthermore, the Core i7-1360P outperforms, reaching up to 5GHz (P-cores) and 3.7GHz (E-cores), whereas the Apple M2 is limited to base frequencies.
  4. Memory: The Apple M2 utilizes unified memory with LPDDR5 at 6400 MT/s, while the Core i7-1360P supports LPDDR5x and DDR5 (both at 6400 MT/s), DDR4 (3200 MT/s), and LPDDR4 (4267 MT/s).
  5. Cache: The Core i7-1365P has 80KB of L1 cache per core, while the Apple M2 betters that with 192 KB. Furthermore, the Apple M2 has a shared 16MB pool of L2 cache, whereas the Core i7-1365P has 2MB L2 cache/core – totaling 24 MB. Lastly, the Core i7-1360P has an 18MB pool of L3 cache, and the Apple M2 does not have an L3 cache. 
  6. TDPAs mentioned, the Apple M2 has impressive power efficiency, with a base TDP of just 10W. In contrast, the Core i7-1360P’s TDP can be adjusted between 20 to 28W (configurable) while the boost TDP goes up to 64W.

Apple’s revolutionary Silicon architecture upped its game as it stopped relying on Intel to provide its chips. Meanwhile, their M2 chip promises even better performance on the same 5nm manufacturing process. Today, we’re comparing Intel vs Apple in the form of Core i7-1360P vs Apple M2 to find the better mobile CPU.

Performance: Apple M2 Vs Core i7-1360P

With the architectural differences out of the way, let’s see how these differences apply to performance. We’ll look at their single-core and multi-core performance in three different applications.

Overall multi-core and single-core performance
Overall performance (Image by Tech4Gamers)
  • Multi-core Performance: We analyzed that the Core i7-1360P amassed 14796 points and the Apple M2 followed with 11052 points. This means the Core i7-1360P is about 33.8% faster than the Apple M2 in multi-core applications.
  • Single-core Performance: The Apple M2 took the win ever-so-slightly with 2528 points over 2511 of the Core i7-1360P. Thus, the Apple M2 is only 0.6% faster in single-core applications on average.

Core i7-1360P Vs Apple M2: Which One To Go For? 

Intel Core i7-1360P: The information we gathered so far shows that the Core i7-1360P laptops start at $1099, just like the Apple M2 ones, but offer better specifications at the same price. Additionally, the most expensive Core i7-1360P laptop costs $2199, whereas Apple M2 laptops go up to $2499. In the end, though, the Core i7-1360P impressed more with its performance and value. 

Apple M2: As for the M2, we saw that the Mac M2 has its wins in the comparison, like power efficiency, better iGPU, and potentially faster memory bandwidth. There’s also a difference in operating systems. So, make sure to consider all factors before making a purchase.

We suggest considering the Intel Core i7-1360P because the Core-i7-1360P shows much better multi-core performance and nearly provides the same single-core performance as the Apple M2. Hence, it’s safe to say that the Core i7-1360P provides a much better value than the Apple M2 CPU.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the main architectural differences between Core i7-1360P and Apple M2?

The Apple M2 uses a System-on-chip (SoC) design, while the Core i7-1360P uses a traditional “CPU on motherboard” design. Furthermore, the Core i7-1360P uses the x86-64 instruction set, while Apple’s M2 uses the ARMv8 set.
