The Apple M1 chip describes the following specs of its chip:
  • 8-core CPU with 4 perform­ance cores and 4 efficiency cores
  • 7-core GPU/8-core GPU
  • 16-core Neural Engine
Will the deep learning toolbox automatically use Apple M1 chip for GPU and Neural Engine?

No. MATLAB only supports NVIDIA GPUs for computation.

Well, it's been an interesting discussion and I'll certainly add this user story to the other cases for widening support for accelerators including Apple M1, AMD, Intel, TPU and others.
