24” iMac M1 doesn’t impress

PostWed Apr 21, 2021 6:01 am

I just saw the announcements of the new 24” iMac and with the current spec I am not impressed for a Resolve contender. Other than the basic capabilities of Resolve, we already know that the M1 MacBook and Mac Mini, with 8/8 cpu/gpu cores and 16Gb ram just makes it an entry level computer for Resolve. The iMac with 8/8/8 cpu/gpu/ram will barely cut it. The display gets a cool point though. I’m hoping that the m1 Mac Pro and Mac Mini in their future will have their silicones at 16/16/32 at the very least.

The new 24” iMacs weren’t designed for professional grading so I don’t see how anyone could be disappointed if they can’t handle Resolve. smh

When I'm posting here in the BMD forum, it is always in the context of using things with BMD products, like Resolve. IMO, not everything has to be a "professional grading" product in order for it to be impressive, at least not to me.
