Entitled “Peek Performance”, it certainly unveiled a lot of wonderful surprises in just one hour.
“Introducing the all-new Mac Studio and Studio Display, new iPad Air, new iPhone SE, and iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro in two new shades of green.”
M1 Ultra, the next giant leap for Apple silicon and the Mac, is described by the tech giant as the world’s most powerful chip for a personal computer. It is available in the all-new Mac Studio, bringing unprecedented performance to the desktop.
Apple’s senior vice president of Hardware Technologies Johny Srouji said, “M1 Ultra is another game-changer for Apple silicon that once again will shock the PC industry. By connecting two M1 Max die with our UltraFusion packaging architecture, we’re able to scale Apple silicon to unprecedented new heights. With its powerful CPU, massive GPU, incredible Neural Engine, ProRes hardware acceleration, and huge amount of unified memory, M1 Ultra completes the M1 family as the world’s most powerful and capable chip for a personal computer.”
