8GB vs 16GB M1 MacBook Pro – How much RAM do you NEED?!

Is 16GB of RAM actually a limitation on the M1 MacBook Pro? Is it worth the extra $200 compared to the base 8GB model? We go in-depth with real-world tests …

    Hi !
    Thanks for all your videos !

    Could you look how M1 Macbooks handle 61Mp RAW files of the A7Riv ? Is it as smooth as with A7RIII RAW files ?
    Thanks !

    First: you should learn first what OS memory usage means, that unused memory is wasted mameory, how the macOS allocates memory etc, otherwise you look at numbers and make weird cocnlusions
    Second: that Logic Pro benchmark is pure garbage – everytime one of you guys runs it, the results are different. Also – what does it even test exactly?
    Third: getting 16GB version is just future-proofing against future macOS versions and future applications. Anyone in tech should already know that apps have tendency to use more and more RAM with each new version

    As a software developer doing large builds on an Intel system, I know that 16GB of RAM takes 2x to 3x the time as on a 32GB system. I would be very surprised if that changed significantly with M1.

    Can you guys tell me what you selected to see the cpu temp? There is a ton of options in istatistica for temp. Thanks!

    This is such an interesting video. It's amazing the giant strides Apple made with the M1! It's interesting that most of the RAM is used for each machine on a given process, yet they both finish at roughly the same time. I'm really excited to see what Apple has in store for its desktop Macs. With more room and better cooling possibilities, it will just embarrass what Intel could ever do.

    What would you think will be the difference bet 16gb ram mba vs 16gb ram mbp? This is a dilemma considering the price point.

    Q: 8GB/265 GB vs. 16GB/512 Gb ? Is the 512 GB SSD faster ? -> Can‘t find a Benchmark result on the net.

    RAM should not be measure for performance in one app only. It should be measured with a full load of apps opened and running at the same time.

    Another interesting situation to compare would be:
    Chrome, with mutiple tabs, an IDE and perhaps 1-2 other apps (mail, spotify, whatever).
    And see if there is a visible performance difference when switching tabs in chrome or apps in general.

    You really need to put Docker in this kind of reviews next time. Probably you'll change your mind.

    Love to know how the Macbook Pro 16" i9 with 64g RAM vs the M1 13" with 16g RAM stacks up.
    I'm doing Pro audio and need as much RAM as possible for 3rd party plugins.
