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.
Max power, mini footprint.
The Apple M1 chip packs astonishing speed and power into Mac mini. The 8-core CPU delivers up to 3x 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 Apple 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.
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 Apple M1 chip brings a 16-core Neural Engine and a full stack of ML technologies, transforming Mac mini into an ML powerhouse.
macOS Big Sur
The power of macOS Big Sur on the Apple M1 chip.
Developed to unlock the potential of the Apple 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 Apple 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 Apple M1 chip allows 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 Apple M1 chip brings up to 16GB of super-fast unified memory. This single pool of high-bandwidth, low-latency memory allows apps to share data between the CPU, GPU and Neural Engine efficiently — so everything you do is fast and fluid.
Fits in. Rocks out.
Connections and expansion
Connect and conquer.
Another first for Mac mini, Wi-Fi 6 delivers better all-around performance and up to 1.2 Gbps of throughput — for lightning-fast file transfers or backing up to Time Machine.
