I wanted to report that SU 2022 running as a native M1 app on my new M1 Max MBP is amazingly fast and responsive. This is a qualitative impression, but I couldn’t be happier with my performance. Be aware that my previous MBP was an ancient late 2013 15" MBP that, unknown to me when I purchased it, did NOT have a hardware GPU, only the standard Intel Iris Pro 5200 graphics (yes, Apple stupidly allowed such a configuration way back when!). Up until SU 2019, I got along OK with my previous MBP, but interactive performance of SU 2019 and newer (orbit, pan, zoom, inferencing, etc) completely tanked without a GPU, even on simple models. The new M1 Max doesn’t miss a beat. Please note that I have no way to compare the M1 Max performance vs the last Intel version of the MBP with their standard, or upgraded GPU options.
Despite not having the ‘top notch’ hardware at that time, they did manage to have it set up in such a way that it worked and kept working all that time.
I wasted three comparable windows machines in the four years before I bought a 2013 Mac, which is now still used by my daughter.
