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.
The incredible M1 Ultra chip actually starts with M1 Max. From its inception, M1 Max has held the ability to connect to another M1 Max die using a custom-built packaging architecture called UltraFusion. With twice the connection density of any technology available, UltraFusion provides a massive 2.5TB/s of low-latency interprocessor bandwidth between the two dies using very little power.
The final member of the M1 family, M1 Ultra joins two M1 Max dies — yet it looks like a single piece of silicon to software, so apps benefit from its extraordinary capabilities without requiring any additional work from developers. The result is the most powerful chip ever in a personal computer.
M1 Ultra CPU Performance vs Power.
Compared with the fastest 16-core PC desktop chip, M1 Ultra delivers up to 90 per cent higher performance in the same power envelope. And M1 Ultra can deliver the PC chip’s peak performance while using 100 watts less power.²
Fits right in.
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 your desk.
Plays it cool.
Within the 19.7-cm-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 stay 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.
Transform your studio.
With its strikingly compact form factor and abundance of ports, Mac Studio lets you reimagine your workspace and unleash your creativity. Connect up to four Pro Display XDRs and one 4K TV.
macOS and pro apps. Optimised for Apple silicon.
macOS Monterey was designed to scale with Apple silicon, so the system automatically benefits from the increased graphics, massive memory and powerful machine learning of M1 Max or M1 Ultra. With over 10,000 optimised apps and plug-ins — and great new macOS features like Universal Control (Beta), Shortcuts and Focus — you can work, play and create in ways you never imagined.
Mac Studio is an entirely new Mac desktop. It packs 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.
At the core of it all.
M1 Max and M1 Ultra CPUs leverage high-performance cores and high-efficiency cores — up to 20 CPU cores in total — to deliver industry-leading performance per watt. Up to 64 GPU cores deliver massive amounts of graphics performance. And up to 32 Neural Engine cores execute up to 22 trillion operations per second for accelerated machine learning tasks.
Designed with the earth in mind.
Mac Studio was engineered to minimise its environmental impact, from how it’s built to how it’s packaged and shipped — even how it’s used. Thanks to the efficiency of Apple silicon, Mac Studio raises the bar for desktops in its class by requiring far less energy than its competitors. Over the course of a year, Mac Studio will use up to 1,000 kilowatt hours less energy than a high-end PC desktop. It uses 100 per cent recycled rare earth elements in its magnets and recycled tin in the solder of the main logic board. All virgin wood fibre in its packaging comes from responsibly managed forests.³
