Mac Studio is an entirely new Mac desktop. It packs outrageous performance, extensive connectivity and new capabilities into an unbelievably compact form, placing everything you need within easy reach and transforming any space into a studio. And it all starts with your choice of the ferociously fast M1 Max or the all-new M1 Ultra — the most powerful chip ever in a personal computer.
Built from two M1 Max chips, M1 Ultra allows you to power through workflows on an unprecedented scale. So you can run complex particle simulations or work with massive 3D environments that were previously impossible to render. And with double the media engine resources, M1 Ultra can support up to 18 streams of 8K ProRes 422 video playback — something no other personal computer can do.

114 billion transistors
Up to 22 trillion operations per second
Support for up to five displays
H.264, HEVC and ProRes encode and decode
Up to 8TB SSD with up to 7.4GB/s read speeds
Fits right in
The amazing power and efficiency of Apple silicon has allowed us to completely re‑imagine the high-performance desktop. The design inspiration for Mac Studio was simple: to enable M1 Max or M1 Ultra — and your creativity — to run completely unrestrained, within the smallest possible footprint. It fits perfectly under most displays, putting prodigious power and connectivity at arm’s reach, right on your desk.
Plays it cool.
Within the 19.7-centimetre-square Mac Studio enclosure lies a groundbreaking thermal system designed to allow M1 Max or M1 Ultra to fly through heavy workloads at screaming-fast speeds — and stay whisper-quiet.
Mac Studio lets you create the studio of your dreams with an array of 12 high-performance ports, located front and back for convenient access. Easily connect — and disconnect — your camera, external storage and other devices from the front. See the bigger picture by plugging in up to four Pro Display XDRs and one 4K TV. There’s also a headphone jack with advanced support for high-impedance headphones or line out for amplified speakers.
Studio Display and Mac Studio. Dream team
We designed Mac Studio together with the new Studio Display for the ultimate studio setup. With its breathtaking 27-inch 5K Retina display, 12MP Ultra Wide camera with Centre Stage, studio-quality three-mic array and six-speaker sound system with Spatial Audio, Studio Display completes the full Mac experience.
Transform your studio.
With its strikingly compact form factor and abundance of ports, Mac Studio enables you to re‑imagine your workspace and unleash your creativity.
macOS and pro apps. Optimised for Apple silicon.
macOS Monterey was made to scale with Apple silicon, so the system automatically benefits from the increased graphics, massive memory and powerful machine learning of M1 Max or M1 Ultra. With over 10,000 optimised apps and plug-ins — and great new macOS features like Universal Control19, Shortcuts and Focus — you can work, play and create in ways you never imagined.
