The Apple M1 chip takes Apple’s most versatile, do-it-all desktop into another dimension. With up to 3x faster CPU performance. Up to 6x faster graphics. And Apple’s most advanced Neural Engine for up to 15x faster machine learning. Get ready to work, play, and create on Mac mini with speed and power beyond anything you ever imagined.Supercharged by the Apple M1 chip.
It’s here. Apple’s first chip designed specifically for Mac. Packed with an astonishing 16 billion transistors, the Apple M1system on a chip (SoC) integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O, and so much more onto a single tiny chip. With incredible performance, custom technologies, and industry-leading power efficiency,¹ M1 is not a next step for Mac — it’s another level entirely.
M1 packs astonishing speed and power into Mac mini. The 8-core CPU delivers up to 3x faster processing performance than the previous generation² — all while keeping its iconic 7.7-inch-square design.
Incredible chip in. Unbelievable graphics out.
The 8-core GPU in the M1 chip is the most advanced graphics processor Apple has built to date, full stop. And it brings extremely fast integrated graphics to Mac mini, with a gigantic 6x increase in graphics performance. That’s an insane amount of power — all in an incredibly compact enclosure.
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 16-core Neural Engine and full stack of ML technologies, transforming Mac mini into an ML powerhouse.

The power of macOS Big Sur on M1.
Developed to unlock the potential of the M1 chip, macOS Big Sur transforms Mac with major performance benefits and so much more. Powerful updates for apps. A beautiful new design. Industry-leading privacy features and best-in-class security. It’s Apple’s most powerful software ever — running on Apple’s most advanced hardware yet.
Speed and responsiveness
The M1 chip and macOS Big Sur work together to make the entire system snappier. Mac mini wakes almost instantly from sleep. Everyday things like flipping through photos and browsing Safari are faster. And your hardest-working apps all have access to the power they need.
Biggest collection of apps ever
Run powerful apps built for M1. All your existing apps work thanks to Rosetta 2. And for the first time, you can use your favorite iPhone and iPad apps directly on macOS Big Sur. Altogether you’ll have access to the biggest collection of apps ever for Mac.
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.⁵
Minus the tower.
The M1 chip brings up to 16GB of superfast unified memory. This single pool of high-bandwidth, low-latency memory allows apps to share data between the CPU, GPU, and Neural Engine efficiently — so everything you do is fast and fluid.
Mac mini comes with all-flash storage — up to a whopping 2TB SSD for all your photo and video libraries, files, and apps.⁶ And with speeds up to 3.4GB/s, apps and files launch and load in an instant.⁷
The M1 chip and macOS Big Sur give Mac mini advanced security and privacy features beyond anything in its class, helping to keep your system and your data protected.Keep it secure
With its compact size, incredible performance, and wide array of ports, Mac mini is perfect for a surprising range of uses like gaming and digital art creation. 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 — from home offices to music studios and more.
With two screaming-fast Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports, two USB-A ports, HDMI 2.0, Wi-Fi 6, and Gigabit Ethernet, Mac mini is up for anything and everything.
Thunderbolt / USB 4
Transfer data at up to 40Gb/s.⁸ Charge and power external devices. Connect one external display up to 6K and a second with HDMI 2.0 up to 4K.
Another first for Mac mini, Wi-Fi 6 delivers better all-around performance and up to 1.2Gb/s of throughput — for lightning-fast file transfers or backing up to Time Machine.
