New guts. More glory.
The Apple M1 chip takes our most versatile, do-it-all desktop into another dimension. With up to 3x faster CPU performance. Up to 6x faster graphics. And our most advanced Neural Engine for up to 15x faster machine learning. Get ready to work, play, and create on Mac mini with speed and power beyond anything you ever imagined.
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 efficiency1, M1 is not a next step for Mac — it’s another level entirely.
8-core CPU Max power, mini footprint
M1 packs astonishing speed and power into Mac mini. The 8-core CPU delivers up to 3x faster processing performance than the previous generation2 — all while keeping its iconic 7.7-inch-square design.
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 mini9, with a gigantic 6x increase in graphics performance. That’s an insane amount of power — all in an incredibly compact enclosure.
16-core Neural Engine
It‘s the brains of the operation. Machine learning (ML) brings task-smashing speed and automation to video analysis, voice recognition, image processing, and more. And the M1 chip brings a 16-core Neural Engine and full stack of ML technologies, transforming Mac mini into an ML powerhouse.
The power of macOS Big Sur on M1
Developed to unlock the potential of the M1 chip, macOS Big Sur transforms Mac with major performance benefits and so much more. Powerful updates for apps. A beautiful new design. Industry-leading privacy features and best-in-class security. It‘s our most powerful software ever — running on our most advanced hardware yet.
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.
The integration of technologies on the M1 chip allows Mac mini to blow away computers many times its size — taking on intensive tasks while consuming up to 60 percent less energy than the previous generation.
