Google earlier this week released a version of Chrome specifically designed for Apple M1 Mac.

Therefore, those who have a new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro or Mac mini can get an exclusive optimized version of Chrome. After testing, this version runs 66% to 81% faster than the x86 version through Rosetta 2.

After the M1 version of Chrome was released, Ars Technica conducted a series of benchmark tests using Speedometer 2.0, JetStream2, and Motion Mark 1.1. In all cases, the M1 version of Chrome was much faster than the x86 transposed version.

In the Speedometer 2.0 test, the M1 Chrome score was 210, while the standard Chrome score was 116. In the Jetstream 2 test, the M1 Chrome score was 156.9 and the standard Chrome score was 93.1. In the Motion Mark 1.1 test, M1 Chrome scored 726.4, while the standard Chrome score was 435.7.

In all tests, the native M1 version of Chrome performed 66% to 81% better than the version running Rosetta 2. Of course, Safari, designed by Apple, is the fastest native among all browsers, and it ranks among the best in all tests.

According to Ars Technica, the Speedometer test can better simulate real-life usage, which is the biggest advantage of these two browser versions. Jetstream 2 simulates network applications, such as spreadsheets, while MotionMark 1.1 only tests the performance of complex graphics animations.
