Apple M1 Mac

Hi Guys,

I'm considering getting a new M1 Mac Mini as my stream device. My usage varies as i run an event production company. We might come to a point to use 5-10 NDI sources + a few camera source (using BMD decklink 8k pro with enclosure) and some overlays and playbacks.


I'm currently using MBP 2018


I7 2.6ghz @6core+ 16Gb ram

Radeon Pro 560x 4gb & intel integrated graphics


1. Would it be a good upgrade to M1 Mac Mini or should i get a better built PC with an i9 i10900x + rtx 3060ti?

2. Anyone using M1 Mac to run their streams came across any major issues after new updates from wirecast?


Would appreciate some experience sharing from all the M1 users here.


Thank you in advance.

  • It's hard to make a direct comparison but many users have been impressed with the M1 although a few are waiting for the next generation because they feel it's coming soon. 

    Make sure any additional software you might be using is also M1 (Apple Silicon) optimized rather than running under Rosetta.
