TESTED: Apple 2021 MacBook Pro M1 Max — a Stunning Performer That Crushes Intel-Based Macs

re: Why a Desktop Computer is Often Better than a Laptop
re: Apple MacBook Pro M1

Extensive comparative testing is now finished, and the results are stunning in favor of the 2021 MacBook Pro M1 Max.

The few exceptions are when all 28 cores of high-end 2019 Mac Pro can be brought to bear. More standard Mac Pros (8/10/12/14 cores) would lose to the M1 Max, which is a stinkin' laptop consuming 1/10 the power—OMG. Just wait until we have a 20-core M1 Max!

Big thanks to B&H Photo for loaning the 16" MacBook Pro 10-core 64GB/4TB/32GPU (APMBP16SG26).

The OWC USB-C TRAVEL DOCK E was sure handy, allowing me to connect gigabit ethernet and a mouse.

Use the B&H Payboo card to save the sales tax. Thanks for buying through this site at OWC/MacSales.com and B&H Photo.

Big thanks to B&H Photo for loaning the 16" MacBook Pro 10-core 64GB/4TB/32GPU (APMBP16SG26). Extensive comparative testing is now finished, and the results are stunning.

Extensive comparative testing covering 19 pages details the amazing results.

Review pages for 2021 MacBook Pro M1 Max

The results are unbelievably fast. Intel has a lot of catching-up to do.

Take focus stacking as just one example: at best, the 28-core Mac Pro* ekes out about a 19% time reduction over the 2021 MacBook Pro M1 Max on the larger job (only 10% for the smaller one).The 2021 MacBook Pro M1 Max is stunning! But most Mac Pros will have 8/10/12/16 cores and that means the MacBook Pro would easily BEAT them.

* A 28-core CPU is a $7000 (seven thousand) dollar upgrade from the 8-core CPU! Even the 12-core CPU is a $2000 upgrade! But the MacBook Pro M1 Max would crush the 8/12/16 core models here!
