New guts. More glory. It's here. Apple's first chip designed specifically for Mac. Packed with an astonishing 16 billion transistors, the Apple M1 system on a chip (SoC) integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O and so much more onto a single tiny chip. With incredible performance, custom-engineered technologies and industry-leading power efficiency(1), M1 is not a next step for Mac - it's another level entirely. M1 packs astonishing speed and power into Mac mini. The 8-core CPU delivers up to 3x faster processing performance than the previous generation(2) - all while keeping its iconic 19.7-centimetre design. The 8-core GPU in the M1 chip is the most advanced graphics processor Apple has built to date. And it brings extremely fast integrated graphics to Mac mini, with a gigantic 6x increase in graphics performance(3). That's an insane amount of power - all in an incredibly compact enclosure. Disclaimer: (1) Testing conducted by Apple in October 2020 using preproduction 13-inch MacBook Pro systems with the Apple M1 chip and 16GB of RAM. Performance per watt refers to the ratio of peak CPU performance to average power consumed using selected industry-standard benchmarks. Comparison made against high-performing CPUs for notebooks and desktops commercially available at the time of testing. Performance tests are conducted using specific computer systems and reflect the approximate performance of MacBook Pro. (2) Testing conducted by Apple in October 2020 using preproduction Mac mini systems with the Apple M1 chip, and production 3.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i3-based Mac mini systems, all configured with 16GB of RAM and a 2TB SSD. Prerelease Final Cut Pro 10.5 tested using a 55-second clip with 4K Apple ProRes RAW media, at 4096-by-2160 resolution and 59.94 frames per second, transcoded to Apple ProRes 422. Performance tests are conducted using specific computer systems and reflect the approximate performance of Mac mini.
