Apple’s new Mac M1s are not compatible with external GPUs

On Tuesday, November 10, Apple introduced Macs with the M1 processor: Mac mini, MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro. However, experts found flaws in the models.

This is reported by Apple Insider.

Representatives of the company noted the amazing performance indicators of the new models and promised a longer battery life. Paul Gerhardt said in a tweet that none of Apple’s new inventions are compatible with external GPUs that connect via Thunderbolt. According to him, the new Mac M1s will not support eGPU.

True, not all Apple users will feel this disadvantage, but support for external graphics cards provided the device with an additional game cache and helped in the work of creative professionals.

The presentation focused on the fact that the 13-inch MacBook Pro M1 models contain only two USB-C ports on board instead of four. At the same time, the company’s specialists did not explain why they resorted to such a step.

You can’t expand the amount of RAM in M1-based devices. Apple offers two storage options – 8 or 16 GB. If you think that you will need 32 GB, then you will have to opt for the Intel model.
