Apple Introduces the Mac Studio

Apple introduced Mac Studio. It will be available starting March 18, 2022, and is priced starting at $1,999. Mac Studio is 7.7” across and 3.7” tall.

Mac Studio is an entirely new Mac desktop. It packed outrageous performance, extensive connectivity, and new capabilities into an unbelievably compact form, putting 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 of the all-new M1 Ultra – the most powerful chip ever in a personal computer.

The incredible power and efficiency of Apple silicon has allowed us to completely reimagine the high performance desktop. The design inspiration for Mac Studio was simple: to let M1 Max or M1 Ultra – and your creativity – 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 our desk.

Within the 7.7-inch square Mac Studio enclosure lies a groundbreaking thermal system designed to let M1 Max or M1 Ultra fly through heavy workloads at screaming-fast speeds – and say 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.

The front of the Mac Studio has two USB-C or Thunderbolt 4 ports and 1 SDXC port. The back of the Mac Studio has four Thunderbolt 4 ports, 1 HDMI port, 1 10GB Ethernet port 1 3.5 mm port, two USB-A ports and a headphone jack.

The M1 Max brings power to tackle challenges of almost any size. Whether you’re running multiple apps, sorting and editing thousands of photos, recording and mixing professional-quality music, or discovering a new exoplanet, the screaming-fast M1 Max has your back.

M1 Max has:

Up to 2.5X faster CPU performance
Up to 3.5x faster GBU performance
Up to 2.2x faster machine learning

Built from two M1 Max chips, M1 Ultra lets you 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 twice 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.

M1 Max has:

Up to 3.8x faster CPU performance
Up to 4.5x faster GBU performance
Up to 3.9x faster machine learning
