This new Mac comes with Apple Silicon M1 Max chips and M1 Ultra and is more powerful than the latest generation Mac Pro.
Apple yesterday unveiled a new desktop computer designed to provide every user with everything they need to create the workstation they have always wanted. It is a new line that aims to engage the most demanding users with unprecedented performance, many ports for extended connectivity, and new possibilities in an incredibly compact design.. Those closest to the Cupertino brand will immediately notice a series of similarities between this Mac Studio and the cylindrical Mac Pro that had appeared before the last model on sale.
Made from a single block of aluminum, the new Mac Studio is compact and elegant and integrates huge fans capable of providing maximum thermal and energy efficiency. Mac Studio has a footprint of only 19.7 cm x 19.7 cm and a height of just 9.4 cm, takes up very little space and fits easily under most displays.
The special dual-sided fan system, carefully placed airflow channels, and over 4,000 perforations on the rear and bottom of the chassis guide air through internal components and cool the high-performance chips. Thanks to the efficiency of the Apple chip, Mac Studio is incredibly quiet even under the heaviest workloads.
The aluminum block leaves room for the following:
- 4x Thunderbolt 4
- 2x USB-A
- 2x USB-C
- 1x HDMI
- 10Gb Ethernet
- 3.5mm audio jack
The performance exceeds that of the more powerful Mac Pro. This new Mac Studio can count on the very powerful M1 Max chips and on the brand new M1 Ultra that offers absolutely monstrous performance. On a technical level we find up to 128GB of unified memory and 800GB / s of bandwidth for a responsiveness never seen before. Furthermore, the CPU reaches up to 20-cores and the GPU up to 64-cores while the SSD storage reaches up to 8TB with absolutely mind-blowing speeds (7.4GB / s).
