Apple has recently announced the whole new mac called the Mac Studio. It’s basically a Mac mini that is a lot more powerful than usual. It comes paired with the Studio Display which they claim to be the best set of equipment for your studio needs.
Apple Mac Studio
The Mac Studio is a very powerful yet compact Mac. It comes with all sorts of ports and performance for all your studio needs.
The Mac Studio is very sleek & portable. It comes in a matte silver colour. The device is built from a single aluminium extrusion with a square footprint of just 7.7 inches and a height of only 3.7 inches. Mac studio comes with a unique system of double-sided blowers. Over 4,000 perforations can be seen on the back and bottom of the enclosure. This is so the small form factor remains cool. A small led on the front with an SD card slot and 2 USB C ports can be seen. While on the back we see a lot of different ports.
The Mac Studio has a total of 6 USB C ports, 1 ethernet, 1 HDMI, 2 USB, 1 headphone jack, and 1 power port.
The Mac Studio is powered by the all-new Apple M1 Ultra SoC. Apple claims that the new device will deliver 50 per cent faster CPU performance than a Mac Pro with a 16-core Xeon and 2.5 times faster CPU performance than a 27-inch iMac with a 10-core Core i9. With its ultra-powerful media engine, Mac Studio with M1 Ultra can play back 18 streams of 8K ProRes 422 video. Apple claims no other computer in the world can do anything like this.
The M1 Max chipset is already said to be the fastest chip Apple has ever made, and the complete specifications lie here.
Apple Studio Display
Along with the mac, Apple also launched a new display. The display is a 27-inch 5K Retina screen with integrated speakers and a 12MP camera. It also gets 14.7 million pixels. With 600 nits of brightness, P3 wide colour, and support for over one billion colours.
The screen can be adjusted in various positions easily with the changeable stands. A VESA mount adapter option is also available and supports landscape or portrait orientation. It gets the A13 Bionic Chip so it can seamlessly connect with other Apple devices as well as support features like Dolby Atomos.
The Mac Studio with M1 Max will start at $1,999 (PKR 355,000), and the M1 Ultra models will start at $3,999 (PKR 711,000). The studio display is $1,599 (PKR 285,000)
