Apple Unveils New Mac Mini Powered By M1 Apple Silicon

Apple today introduced a new Mac mini, its second Mac powered by the company’s custom M1 Apple Silicon chip with integrated graphics processor.

Thanks to the introduction of the M1 chip, the Mac mini’s 8-core CPU provides faster performance than the previous generation. Specifically, Apple says that the M1-powered Mac mini is able to compile code in Xcode up to three times faster, play a grap

hics-intensive game with up to four times higher frame rates, and render a complex timeline in Final Cut Pro up to six times faster.

The new Mac mini also features an advanced thermal design to sustain performance, allowing it to stay cool and quiet. It supports up to two displays and Wi-Fi 6 for faster wireless performance. There’s also the Secure Enclave in M1 for what Apple describes as best-in-class security.

Apple says the 5-nanometer M1 chip supports Thunderbolt and USB 4 support, and boasts the world’s fastest integrated graphics with a 16-core Neural Engine that can process 11 trillion operations per second.

The new Mac mini continues Apple’s transition away from Intel processors in Macs. Back in June, Apple revealed its plans to begin using its own custom Apple Silicon processors in Macs, promising industry-leading performance per watt. At the time, Apple said that the transition would take about two years to be completed.

The Mac mini with M1 is available to order today on, and then it will begin to arrive to customers next week. The Mac min is available at 699 for 256GB storage and at 899 for 512GB storage.Related Roundup: Mac miniTags: Apple Silicon, November 2020 eventBuyer’s Guide: Mac Mini (Buy Now)This article, Apple Unveils New Mac Mini Powered By M1 Apple Silicon first appeared on MacRumors.comDiscuss this article in our forums
