The M1 Mac Mini was an impressive machine with one major caveat - Apple removed the 10 gigabit NIC. We thought it was because they couldn’t make it work. We thought wrong… Or did we?

  • I am considering getting a mac mini recently. However, I am still confused about what the 10G E does. So I need to get the Telus Gigabit plan first, then the 10G Ethernet on this mac mini will do magic for me, right?

    gigasgigas11 napja
    • 10 gigabit ethernet is not for the average user. mac mini's are widely used in render farms in studios where editing shorter video clips on many small machines is more efficient and cost effective than a big computer. Having a 10 gbe port means that could be done as that port helps to connect to a high speed file server where those video clips are stored.

  • in the fast scrolling output of the running script one still sees "Operation not permitted" errors from dd trying but failing to access raw ssd disk device because it isn't running as root. So your test might not show valid results as the SSDs were possibly not really accessed due to this error.

  • Monitor name please ?

    Nikhil VermaNikhil Verma22 napja
  • I have one complaint about the M1 machines, and one complaint only. That Apple artifically limited the amount of displays you can connect to it. I really hate them for that. The M1 chip is capable of driving 2x 5K screens, so bandwidth-wise that's more than EIGHT FullHD screens. But Apple has limited *all* physically connected displays. Even though you can connect more than two monitors, only two of them will work at one time. I hear you say there's something else there and the problem is just the number of displays. Well, not the case. The M1 can run at least one AirPlay monitor *in addition* to the regular displays. So there's literally nothing to prevent the system to work with, say 3xFullHD displays, other than Apple itself. And sometimes, even though 1x4K has more pixels than 3xFullHD, the three FullHD screens offer "more space" and more organized desktop. That's literally my only complaint. In the real world, where we're not staring at numbers and just doing stuff, the M1 Mac mini is stupidly fast in everything you can throw at it.

    Anna VahteraAnna Vahtera23 napja
  • Awesome! Would suggest reducing the fast logging because writing logs (even outputting them) might lower performance.

  • Chances are the pandemic could have effected certain parts being difficult to get en masse, and so they didn't want to delay the Mac Mini launch and gave a model that would still please 95% of users on day one.

  • That wildly scrolling text might measurably affect performance. It might have been intentional, to induce usage of the display steam, but I often experienced printing introducing a bottleneck.

    Tamas HermanTamas Herman27 napja
  • I feel like it would benefit consumers is Apple would just double the ports (maybe not double, but add a fair amount more) on a similar model and state that they are not rated to the same specifications. The majority of users don’t need that much bandwidth on each port, they just want to have access to them without need for a dock/dongle. It’s not like a mouse uses even 1Gbps, sharing with 5 other ports would leave plenty of bandwidth.

    AlisterCountelAlisterCountel27 napja
  • I was about to move back to Windows PCs, until Apple introduced the M1. I bought a MacMini. At first, I had some issues, but they were solved by a new version of Big Sur. The M1 still doesn't perform at the level they announced on launching day, but it is an amazing chip. Now I can't wait for the 16" MacBook Pro to be updated and get one. There are things that are still better in other systems, Google Maps is way better than the Apple maps, and Microsoft OneDrive cloud is way better than iCloud, but I can use those services on a Mac, so there is no need to switch systems anymore.

  • Testing the few ports is burying the lead, you couldnt install any SSD to SATA or pcie for lower latency device speed. This system is a temporary solution & basically DOA ewaste. I am typing this on a 9 year old motherboard with a lower latency NVME add on drive for example. These experimental "modular CPU & RAM" hub systems where the thunderbolt hub is the actual system and you plug different CPU/GPU/RAM/Network in to the hub dosnt seem like a better solution compared to things like the intel NUC which itself is lackluster (but at least compatible and expandable and upgradable and interchangeable) They must see the high margines on embeded kiosk systems and made a big push for those. My work uses an apple device in its embedded customer facing kiosk even tho its fraught with technical issues (either directly related to the device or the separate devices plugged into its limited io or the shit thunderbolt plug itself)
