J. Wallace Posted December 4, 2021 Share Posted December 4, 2021 (edited) Hello everyone There has been some discussion both on this forum and on many Youtube channels about the differences between the M1 Pro and Max chips. We are needing to replace one of our workstations, a 2012 Mac Pro, that has served us very well over the past decade. We are considering a Macbook Pro and find it difficult to determine how important the Pro vs Max chip upgrade would be to our workflow using VW and Twinmotion. We would be purchasing the maximum amount of RAM available in each case, either 32 GB for the Pro and 64 GB for the Max chip. We seem to be getting into much larger land design projects, the latest using an 800+ acre site model. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has made the leap to the new M1 Macbook pro, what configuration they decided on, and how they find the performance. One video which has caused some doubt in my mind regarding the Max chip set is shown below. Saying that the stress test used is most likely not going to be replicated in our day to day workflow. My gut instinct is that the Pro chip with 32 GB of unified memory would be more than enough. Thank you in advance for any comments or feedback. Edited December 4, 2021 by J.
