  • Apple's Mac Studio is here with the new M1 Ultra chip. (Tom's Hardware)

    It's essentially a Mac Mini Pro. Or a Mac Pro Mini. Either way, it replaces the regular M1 chip with your choice of the faster M1 Max, or the much faster M1 Ultra.

    Which is two M1 Max chips glued together. (AnandTech)

    While Apple's benchmark numbers are, let's just say, selective, these are pretty good chips.

    The Mac Studio is good, but it's not cheap, and it is entirely soldered in place. What you buy is what you are stuck with. You can configure it with up to 128GB of RAM (at about 3x market prices) and 8TB of SSD (at 4x market prices).

    Apple as a company still sucks, of course. They make nice hardware but terrible policies.

  • Threadripper Pro 5000 is also out. (AnandTech)

    From 12 to 64 Zen 3 cores. And no, you can't get one. Just as they did initially with the Threadripper Pro 3000 family, you can only buy it through OEMs, and when they say OEMs they mean Lenovo.
