3D on Apple silicon

True high-performance workstations

An alternative to Nvidia and AMD

Apple Silicon, particularly the M2 and subsequent chips, represent a significant advancement in processing power and efficiency, making them ideal for 3D applications. These chips feature a unified memory architecture, which allows the CPU and GPU to access the same memory pool, reducing the latency and increasing the speed of data transfer, providing more cores and better performance per watt compared to many traditional chips. This means they can handle complex 3D rendering tasks more efficiently, leading to smoother graphics and faster processing times.
