Performance is compared with previous generation.
Small chip, giant leap Packed with an astonishing 16 billion transistors, the Apple M1 system on a chip (SoC) integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O, and so much more onto a single tiny chip. With incredible performance and custom technologies, M1 is not a next step for Mac - it's another level entirely.
Max power, mini footprint M1 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 7.7-inch-square design.
Machine learning 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 M1 chip brings a 16-core Neural Engine and full stack of ML technologies, transforming Mac mini into an ML powerhouse.
Compact design The integration of technologies on the M1 chip allows Mac mini to blow away computers many times its size - taking on intensive tasks while consuming up to 60 percent less energy than the previous generation.
Versatility With its compact size, incredible performance, and wide array of ports, Mac mini is perfect for a surprising range of uses. And with the powerful M1 chip unleashed within its 7.7-inch-square frame, you never know where you'll find a Mac mini hard at work.
