It does however you're stuck with ARM virtual machines. I do plenty of work with x86 images from various OS's for customers so it's the only downside for now.
Really? Just how loosely do you define double? Do you know how to work out a percentage difference?
Have the same machine.
For the haters in real world terms, this is what the new "Overpriced garbage" machine has done for me:
Old machine: Intel MBP, 16GB Ram, Core i7 - 2019 model IIRC.
New machine: 2020 M1 MBP - 16GB ram
I compile a large project multiple times a day for my development work. Compiling it on the above machines means the following for me:
Old MBP: ± 25 Mins, each time. On top of that the whole machine grinds to a halt just about, fans go nuts.
New M1 MBP: ± 4mins. Fans don't even kick in and machine remains responsive.
So,, yes, I will gladly pay the asking price for the "overpriced garbage" every time.
Well my R56K 2018 2.9GHz 6-core i7 MBP with 32GB of RAM took 27 minutes to convert a 12 minute sequence of 6K footage of Blackmagic RAW to ProRes 422, whilst my brand new R33K M1 MBP with half the RAM at 16GB does the same task in just over 8 min.
That's revolutionary in my eyes. I downgraded specs for faster performance at almost half the price.
