M1 MAX with 64GB RAM Photography Review, Do you need this much power?


M1 Max with 64 GB Memory Pro Photographer Review. This is a powerful machine and Apple has in many aspect has build a desktop class machine and pack it down into a compact 14 and 16" chassis in the new MacBook Pro. There's a lot of love about these new machine, the efficiency, the quietness, battery life, great displays and many more. But how does this top of the line machine performs in various photos test including Lightroom Classic, Lightroom CC, Capture 1, Photoshop & Final Cut Pro. You might be surprise that the perforce is improvements is not as unilateral across all of the app. I have some theory with proof in this video why this might be the case but it comes down to optimization. Most of the photos software are not fully optimized for these new machines just yet. So right now they are using brute processor power to get the job done and it is fast but it could be better. In addition, multiple aspects of these machines are tested against each other, CPU/GPU M1 PRO or M1 MAX, RAM 16 vs 32 vs 64 GB, SSD Speed vs capacity and many more. Find out in this video.
