Mac Studio M1 Ultra CPU is Two M1 Max CPUs connected by a 2.5TB/s UltraFusion Interconnect, basically double everything
Mar 9, 2022: Ordered Apple Mac Studio M1 Ultra. Delivery changed a few times, last estimate June 29.
Apr 19, 2022: Ordered Apple Studio Display that should deliver by June 3.
Jun 3, 2022: Studio Display did arrive on time. Still, I can’t use it since the Mac Studio has not <sigh>.
Jun 24, 2022: Mac Studio M1 Ultra shipped and could be here tomorrow which will be the 109th day.
Jun 25, 2022: Apple Mac Studio M1 Ultra: Delivered!
I had ordered a MacBook Pro M1 Max as I mentioned in this post: Finally a MacBook Pro M1 with all the wanted features because I need very occasional portability, and frankly until yesterday the M1 Max was the best Apple silicon you could get your hands on, but today I decided to switch my back-order to a Mac Studio M1 Ultra.
Announced yesterday March 8, 2022, I just could not get the amazing Mac Studio M1 Ultra out of my head. The Mac Studio model I ordered, compared to the MacBook model I previously ordered has double the CPU cores (10 to 20), 16 more GPU cores (48 cores total, there is a 64 cores model for +$1000, I’ll pass), double the Neural Engine cores (16 to 32), double the RAM (32GB to 64GB), double the media engine enhancements, double the memory bandwidth (400GB/sec to 800GB/sec), 6 Thunderbolt 4 ports, 2 USB Type A ports, and 1 Ethernet RJ-45 (1Gb-10Gb).
All the above for a $300 uptick (since at $199, AppleCare is $200 less). For my occasional portability needs I’ll use my 5 year old Lenovo ThinkPad for now, and get a MacBook Pro M1 Pro or MacBook Pro M2 Pro later.
Holy smokes, what will I do with it, ha! Serious overkill, but this is it folks. I promise, bar an unforeseen increase of income, this is it!
