M1 single core performance is the highest on the market at the moment, and FM thrives in the single core. 

D benchmark was probably due to having more cores/threads available.

M1 chip is reportedly at 3.2ghz - so slightly faster than the 4800H.

But if the M1 chip is the first for Apple then the future is looking good for them.

Might push Intel and AMD to even greater processors now. It's an interesting battle.

My understanding is that when you run FM21 it’s through the emulation and the processor looses some speed. When they ran the benchmark through emulation the performance was around 2,4 ghz.

I don't think it losing speed - I think the base speed is 2.4ghz and it's turbo speed is 3.2ghz. 

It's always running through the emulation, Rosetta 2, as FM is on the x86 architecture, then FM has to emulated through Rosetta 2. Until FM is optimised for the chip. But rumours are @EdL I think said (sorry if not you) it's running seemlessly on the M1 chip through emulation.

 

Of course it's faster than every other Mac - Apple weren't really putting in high-end Intel processors into their machines. 

Most were using a U type processor which is known to throttle and have low TDPs. 

Some MacBook pros (airs) had higher end Intel - like the 9980HK (which is an i9 but that doesn't mean much performs same as an i7 10875H)

I see the boldened part is mentioned in the Review. 

 

Most people don't understand Intel chips - and when they say it's better than i9 processor people are like "WOW" but in reality it's not that impressive. 

All it really tells me is that Apple were putting in lower end chips to their products and charging premium prices.

Performance hit of the Rosetta seems negligible (vs Intel) for FM which is pretty amazing - obviously we don't know yet how fast it might be if natively complied, but that is a large job because of how our match engine would need to give the same results between x86 & Arm CPU's - given they handle floating point maths differently.

the 9980HK was basically the top of the line Intel laptop CPU at the time.

You’re probably right, I’m not a tech guy, so I probably take trust these benchmarks/reviews waaaay too much, which states that the M1 takes an performance hit emulation through Rosetta 2.

8GB should be plenty enough unless you had lots of other stuff open at the same time anyway (could always monitor memory usage in task manager while running)

I think I may have found some of my issue - turns out although I was powering down at the end of each day - the computer was still classing this as up time, seems quicker at other stuff after a restart (teach me to follow my own advice when at work - turn it off and back on again) - will redo the benchmark at some point :D

My quest to find a system that can run FM at max detail/database continues with a test on another ridiculously expensive system (about 4 grand using ebay parts, approx 20 grand when brand new), but with disappointing results.

12:15 for benchmark C :rolleyes:

Not super unexpected server CPU's are not designed for games really! They are designed for running lots of VM's

Yeah that's essentially what this server is for, I wasn't expecting it to crush it but was expecting better given the boost frequency is 4Ghz but the small period of 100% usage in the image is about all it ever did.

Do you think FM would ever be able to use a GPU for crunching the numbers given this is quite a common usage for them these days?

Its not really something on our roadmap so I wouldn't expect it any time soon

The MacBook was nog plugged in and at around 43% battery. In the second benchmark it got warm but not hot. If you compare benchmark B to the MBP M1 than I think benchmark B shows the thermal throttling of the Air. (usually after 9 minutes of heavy load)

oh and since the Air has no fan it was completely silent.

Hello, sorry, but I don't speak English. I test the RAM all the time and it's not the optimal setting yet. Waiting for the new UEFI AGESA for my gigaybet x570. At the moment my record in D is: 13 minutes 25 seconds (3600 14-14-14-14-28). See screen. I do not remember the previous timings of 3200 and 13 min. 34 sec

Thank you! I wanted to see how much the timings made a difference. It shows to me that your better memory timings give you more of a boost than I get for having 16 cores.

Not surprisng really given it's 7 years old and the processor in the 2014 model is one of these
MacBook Pro 13" "Core i5" 2.6 Mid-20142.6 GHz Core i5 (I5-4278U)

MacBook Pro 13" "Core i5" 2.8 Mid-20142.8 GHz Core i5 (I5-4308U

)MacBook Pro 13" "Core i7" 3.0 Mid-20143.0 GHz Core i7 (I7-4578U)

Something I wouldn't recommend for FM on a PC. But adequate on the Mac OS.

I agree with your point that the ram doesn’t have the biggest impact. And the cost of 200$ extra really not worth it. 
 

My old had the first you’re listing. I have really limited knowledge of computers and hardware, so didn’t expect that big a difference in performance.

Well the M1 chip is certainly a very good processor. As said before, if you want a portable 13 inch computer for FM then there's nothing better on the Market at the moment other than the Apple Macbook 13 inch with the M1 chip.

Price for me is outrageous and I don't think it's worth it - it is coming up 13 inch macbook pro - 16gb ram - 512gb hard drive
€1,877.95

Even for FM it's overkill - ok it's not quite as good as the Mac - but it's cheaper and would perform extremely well for FM.

It even has a dedicated graphics card - something the Mac hasn't got.

In terms of portablity - it would be very portable.

 

If I remove the graphics card - and go to 8gb RAM - it comes in under €1000

For the sake of a FM - I'd rather save €800.

I really don’t disagree with you on this one, it’s a personal preference. I don’t think I ever had a windows computer I was as happy for as my MBP.

 

I was very happy with the laptop my workplace provided for me, but it is strictly for work and after a year I had to have a new one as the touchpad stopped working.

Fair enough. I struggle to justify buying a Mac. Although I do need it to work it hurts everytime. 

I much prefer PC - not only the price - but I hate folder navigation on the Mac. It's cumbersome and a I have a lot of filing I need to do.

I posted a pretty lengthy post in another thread about the pricing - and my new Mac when I do get one will be about €4,500!!! 
I put another computer together with the exact same specs and it was €2000

But I do need the Mac for work as some fonts won't work on the PC.

I posted a pretty lengthy post in another thread about the pricing - and my new Mac when I do get one will be about €4,500!!! 
I put another computer together with the exact same specs and it was €2000

But I do need the Mac for work as some fonts won't work on the PC. 

Yeah I saw your configuration of the iMac in the other thread. I’ve never thought of that, but the Finder is bad. 
 

I’m glad my workplace provides the laptops. As I actually think it is quite a lot more expensive than the Mac.

Of course - if you have the money and want a Mac - then go and buy one. There's nothing wrong with them. They're good computers.

With this results, is somebody willing to please go on vacation with the game i attached to 1July 2025 and 1July 2032?

It would thake days and days for me to do that..

I would be very very thankfull!

Question. How important are you feeling that SSD storage is for performance outside of saving/loading games? And if there is notable differences, what part do you need to have stored in the SSD for this to show?

 

Im wondering because I have both SSD and HDD in my laptop, and given space restrictions I could afford to move the main game to the steam directory in the SSD, but the SI folder in documents alone its around half my SSD space, so that would be not possible without major tinkering from my side, so not worth it if changes arent noticeable.

a bit noob question here.

let's say after seeing the benchmark spreadsheet, i have the data.

then, what does it mean exactly for me to how should i setup the save?

It doesn't really do that.  Nobody can really tell you how to set up your database because slow for you could be fast for me and visa versa

What it can do is tell you what processor is fastest for Football Manager if you are looking to make a purchase

No difference outside saving and loading.

That said even though I know this I still have mine on my SSD.  FM even has its own SSD on my Desktop PC  :D

there is even an argument that HDD could be better in some circumstances like if you have say 500,000+ small images as some SSD's do not handle huge volumes of small files well.  I haven't tested this though to be fair

Edit - removed the above as probably untrue on modern hardware

Interesting..... 

My Ryzen 5 2500U was around 30 seconds quicker for benchmark A and only 9 seconds slower for benchmark B.  I'd have expected an uplift in performance compared to the previous gen version of the chip, but this suggests otherwise.

In laptops performance depends heavily on cooling a this ones have configurable TDP 12-25 W so comparison is not so straightforward as in desktops.

Hello, sorry, but I don't speak English. I test the RAM all the time and it's not the optimal setting yet. Waiting for the new UEFI AGESA for my gigaybet x570. At the moment my record in D is: 13 minutes 25 seconds (3600 14-14-14-14-28). See screen. I do not remember the previous timings of 3200 and 13 min. 34 sec

Thank you for sharing your RAM timings. I have tried them on my system and WOW what a difference they make. 

I really appreciate your help!

OK So I did a bit of playing around in the BIOS and switched my memory from another system. So I am now running 3733mhz Cl 13 2x8gb (My FCLK will not hit 1900 on this BIOS)

I used Maaartio's memory timings as a reference point. and turned all the voltage settings on my motherboard up to 11. The CPU was at times pulling 240W where before it was maxing at 145W. Some small improvements up until benchmark D!

 

Benchmark A: 1 min 22 sec (Unchanged)

Benchmark B: 5m 52 sec

Benchmark C: 6 min 51 sec

Benchmark D: 12 min 03 sec
