The Apple M1 chip takes our most versatile, do-it-all desktop into another dimension. With up to 3× quicker CPU performance. Up to 6× faster graphics. And our most advanced Neural Engine for up to 15× quicker 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-engineered technologies and industry-leading power efficiency, M1 is not a next step for Mac — it is another level entirely.
8-core CPU Max power, mini footprint.
M1 packs astonishing speed and power into Mac mini. The 8-core CPU offers up to 3× faster processing performance than the previous generation — all while keeping its iconic 19.7-centimetre-square design.
Incredible chip in. Unbelievable graphics out.
The 8-core GPU in the M1 chip is the most advanced graphics processor we have ever built. And it brings the world's fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer to Mac mini, with a gigantic 6× 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 immdiately 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.
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 favourite iPhone and iPad apps directly on macOS Big Sur. Altogether you will have access to the biggest collection of apps ever for Mac.
The integration of technologies on the M1 chip enables Mac mini to blow away computers many times its size — taking on intensive tasks while consuming up to 60 per cent less energy than the previous generation.
One RAM to rule them all.
The M1 chip brings up to 16GB of superfast unified memory. This single pool of high-bandwidth, low-latency memory enables apps to share data between the CPU, GPU and Neural Engine efficiently — so everything you do is fast and fluid.
Mac mini comes with all-flash storage — up to a whopping 2TB SSD for all your photo and video libraries, files and apps. And with speeds up to 3.4GB/s, apps and files launch and load in an instant.
Fits in. Rocks out.
With its compact size, incredible performance and wide array of ports, Mac mini is ideal for a surprising range of uses. And with the powerful M1 chip unleashed within its 19.7-centimetre-square frame, you never know where you will find a Mac mini hard at work.
Mac mini turns any desk into a powerful workstation. Just add a keyboard, a mouse or trackpad, and up to two displays.
The discrete-class GPU performance of the M1 chip allows you to play graphics-intensive games with fluid frame rates and higher fidelity.
The 8-core CPU, superfast unified memory and ML accelerators in the M1 chip allow you to run more tracks, plug-ins and filters in Logic Pro than ever before on Mac mini.
Digital art and signage
From jaw-dropping performance art to giant, immersive digital billboards, Mac mini can drive some of the biggest and brightest digital displays with its incredible performance, versatile I/O and unrivalled power efficiency — all in a remarkably compact design.
Connections and expansion
Connect and conquer.
With two screaming-fast Thunderbolt/USB 4 ports, two USB‑A ports, HDMI 2.0, Wi-Fi 6 and Gigabit Ethernet, Mac mini is up for anything and everything.
Transfer data at up to 40 Gbps. Charge and power external devices. Link one external display up to 6K and a second with HDMI 2.0 up to 4K.
Another first for Mac mini, Wi-Fi 6 provides better all-round performance and up to 1.2 Gbps of throughput — for lightning-fast file transfers or backing up to Time Machine.
