BLENDER Running on the NEW M1 Macs (CPU & RAM Usage, Thermals, Rendering, Performance)

BLENDER Running on the NEW M1 Macs (CPU & RAM Usage, Thermals, Rendering, Performance)

Again, another highly requested topic! Many people want to see the performance of the M1 Mac running Blender. I’m happy to say that even on Rosetta 2, Blender runs extremely well with no issues!

In this video I download some test files and put the Mac through it’s paces. I load up different scenes, test how long the app takes to launch, and also do some test rendering. i also take a thermal snapshot of the thermal performance while rendering and spend some time delving into the CPU and RAM usage.
