Although Mac models with M1 processors offer a Thunderbolt port, it leaves support for the eGPU aside.
It turned out that Mac models with Apple M1 processors will not offer support for eGPU solutions, although they have Thunderbolt ports. In this sense, we can say that the company gave up an important sales advantage.
Those who buy the M2 MacBook Air , M2 MacBook Pro and M1 Mac mini models will not be able to see eGPU support on these models. This detail was noticed by the fact that the products were not among the technical specifications and Blackmagic eGPU was not mentioned.
During its event, Apple claimed that the 5 nm M1 chip had the world’s fastest integrated graphics solution. On the other hand, the lack of a dedicated GPU on the device still makes us wonder whether enough graphics power will be achieved.
Apple is said to have developed a desktop-grade A14T chipset for the upcoming M1 iMac , along with the company also making a dedicated GPU. It is also clear that Apple’s integrated graphics solutions are not bad. According to previously leaked OpenCL tests, the A12Z Bionic GPU beat both the Ryzen 5 4500U and Core i7-1065G7 iGPUs . So it wouldn’t be wrong to expect the M1 GPU to perform better.
