Thanks to the M1 chip, a simple MacBook Air can now handle 8K videos

With its M1 chip, Apple has done a lot. The California brand, which until then had relied on Intel, was able to convince almost all testers with highly satisfactory performance, accurate simulation of x64 applications, and longer battery life than previously offered. Apple M1 chip MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac Mini And iMac Since the end of last year, a real hit. Evidence if one needs, Mac sales Never been strong.

We are waiting for the arrival of professional versions of Apple silicon chips (we are talking about thatAn M1X chip dedicated to the MacBook Pro Since the end of the year), software dedicated to professionals has gradually adapted to the ARM architecture that Apple has pushed. After Adobe’s Creative Cloud compilation, BlackMagic Design’s method of communicating the impressive performance of the Apple silicon chip-equipped Mac.

A MacBook Air at the level of a professional machine?

Da Vinci Resolvin, the developer of a calibration and editing software particularly appreciated by experts, has announced an update of its application specifically dedicated to Apple silicon chips. This is not a change from emulation to native function (DaVinci Resolve was already compatible with many versions) but a modification of the processing engine. The Mac M1 can produce a video rendering of 65% faster … while consuming 30% less power (we’re talking about triple processing speeds in 4K and 8K streams). Blackmagic Design explains that the use of integrated motors directly on the M1 chip is less complicated. According to him, a MacBook Air can now handle multiple 4K streams simultaneously and can even support 8K. A task that could have been done earlier by the more expensive Max.

This is not the first time a developer has used the M1 chip to showcase the performance of their applications. Adobe is very pleased with the performance of the Apple chip, often highlighting the potential performance gains of the first Apple silicon chip dedicated to the Mac. This has not been the case in recent months, as Intel has often explained By his critiques of Apple’s architecture.

With its 17.3 update, Da Vinci Resolve paves the way for the future, the most powerful Apple Silicon Max. If the Mac M1 is able to use the editing software today at a better level than ever before, a true professional is unlikely to use this machine on a daily basis. On the other hand, in the coming months, Blackmagic Design will do almost nothing to change its software for Apple’s future chips. Max’s future has never been so exciting!
