Supercharged by the Apple M1 chip

M1 Chip

Small chip. Giant leap.

It’s here. Our 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 technologies, and industry-leading power efficiency, M1 is not a next step for Mac — it’s another level entirely.

GPU

Incredible chip in. Unbelievable graphics out.

The 8-core GPU in the M1 chip is the most advanced graphics processor we’ve ever built, full stop. And it brings the world’s fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer to Mac mini, with a gigantic 6x increase in graphics performance. That’s an insane amount of power — all in an incredibly compact enclosure.

Speed and responsiveness

The M1 chip and macOS Big Sur work together to make the entire system snappier. Mac mini wakes almost instantly from sleep. Everyday things like flipping through photos and browsing Safari are faster. And your hardest-working apps all have access to the power they need.

More power. Wakes faster.

Biggest collection of apps ever

Run powerful apps built for M1. All your existing apps work thanks to Rosetta 2. And for the first time, you can use your favorite iPhone and iPad apps directly on macOS Big Sur. Altogether you’ll have access to the biggest collection of apps ever for Mac.
