    MP 7,1 Mac Pro 7.1 for motion graphics. Buy now or wait

    Hello there, These days I work mostly as a motion graphic designer and I had finished some complex projects using for the most part Apple motion. I'm currently using Mac Pro 6.1 (cylinder) 6 cores \D500 \32gb ram. From my understanding Apple motion is relaying heavily on GPU power for realtime...

    Slow mouse movement when disabling acceleration on M1 MacBook Air

    Hi, I just bought an M1 MacBook Air and mostly everything works great, with a few exceptions. I usually like to disable mouse acceleration because I'm much more precise with that setting. The way I do it is by going to Terminal and entering defaults write .GlobalPreferences...

    Success: MacOS 9.2 - OSX 10.4 on M1 via QEMU x86

    Hey All, I figured this would be of interest, it's pretty frictionless to run PowerPC OSes via QEMU x86. I fully expected more problems. I haven't seen any try this but I would not be surprised if someone here already has. The requirements are as follows: Xcode + Xcode-select installed x86...

    Washed-out colours in the macOS Interface When Enabling HDR

    Hello. I recently purchased an M1 Mac Mini with 16GB of Ram, but I'm experiencing some weird issues with HDR. I think the problem is on the mac side, as everything seems to be OK in Windows 10 (I have a gaming PC too). I own a Del PD2700U 4K Designer Display which while being natively 8-bit...

    M1 Virtualization: UTM vs Parallels?

    Hi all, So I have my new M1 MacBook Air and I’m looking to virtualize Windows and stop carrying around two laptops, now that Windows on ARM supports x64 emulation (albeit horribly, but support nonetheless). Can anyone that has tried both the new Parallels M1 Preview and UTM (essentially QEMU)...

    How does M1 perform as a server?

    I was tempted to name this thread, "GoFundMe: help me replace all of my servers..." :D Hypothetically, has anyone seen impressive benchmarks on the M1 performing as a server? API/Web/Database/FTP/Email... etc? Traditionally speaking, service providers use our favorite flavor of Linux and load...

    x86 (5nm) vs M1 (10nm)

    How much of the performance / power efficiency do you think is attributed to design (and vertical integration) versus being built on a smaller transistor size? If Intel x86 chips were on 5nm today, what do you think the power efficiency/performance gap would be? What if M1 chips were on 10nm...

    M1 MBP First Impressions (Former 16" MBP Owner)

    Former 16" MBP owner here who just got an M1 MBP. For the last year, my daily driver has been an Intel i9 2.3GHz 8-Core MBP w/ 5500M GPU. Sounds like a pretty hefty laptop to most people... until the M1. I've spent the last day doing a fresh install and hand-migrating everything from scratch...

    Not sure if anyone has had this issue before but I ordered a new custom config M1 MacBook Pro with 1tb SSD and 16gb RAM over the phone with my business account via my local Apple store.

    My Thoughts on Future Mac ARM Chips

    I’ve seen a lot of posts talking about a higher-end M-series chip used in the iMac, 16” MBP, etc. The problem is that most people are calling this the M2 chip, which I think is incredibly unlikely. The M1, despite its incredible performance, is Apple’s entry level, power-efficient chip. They’ll...
