The Apple Mac Studio is touted to be the most powerful desktop computer yet from the company. Surprisingly, all the performance is packed in a small and compact design. It has an all-aluminum body that measures 7.7-inch in length and 3.3-inch in height. It has machine-engineered holes to handle airflow for the two massive cooling fans.

The 20-core CPU is divided into 16x high-performance cores and 4x high-efficiency cores. It is touted to consume 100W less power than other 16-core PC desktop processors. With that, the M1 Ultra Mac Studio is 3.8 times faster than the 10-core i9 iMac and 90 percent faster than the 16-core Xeon Mac Pro. It also has up to 64GB VRAM.

It is so fast that Apple claims that it can play up to 18 streams of 8K ProRes 422 video footage at the same time.

The Mac Studio is also touted to be more energy efficient than other high-end PCs. In a year, it is said to be able to consume 1,000 kilowatt-hours less energy than other powerful PCs. It also has up to 128GB of unified memory and up to 800GB/s of memory bandwidth. For storage, it has up to 8TB of capacity with speeds of up to 7.4GB/s.

For I/O ports, at the back, it has 4x Thunderbolt 4.0 ports, 10GB Ethernet port, 2x USB-A port, 1x HDMI, 3.5mm, and a high-impedance headphone port. In front, it has 2x USB-C with Thunderbolt 4.0 and an SDXC slot.

There's also an M1 Max variant with a lower price tag.
