Also launched at the "Peek Performance" event is a new desktop, the Mac Studio, along with a new Studio Display. The Mac Studio is bigger in size than the Mac mini to fit Apple's all-new flagship M1 Ultra processor.
The Mac Studio is made from a single piece of aluminum and includes a thermal system, which uses fans at the top to suck cool air from vents on the bottom, passing throughout the system.
On the back, it offers a selection of ports, including a power connector, 4 Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports with 40 Gbps throughput each, a 10 Gb Ethernet port, 2 USB-A ports, an HDMI port, and a 3.5mm audio jack. On the front, there are 2 USB-C ports and a UHS-II SDXC card slot.
It also provides extensive display support - up to four Pro Display XDRs and a 4K TV. The Mac Studio comes in two options, with one featuring the M1 Max and the other M1 Ultra. The M1 Max has a 10-core CPU, 24-core GPU, and a 16-core Neural Engine. Meanwhile, the M1 Ultra doubles the figures above.
