Amazon Web Services (AWS) has just announced that EC2 M1 Mac instances are now available in preview, which will allow developers to access machines with Apple’s M1 chip and re-architect their apps to support M1-powered Macs natively.
Developers building for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Apple TV will also benefit from faster builds. EC2 M1 Mac instances deliver up to 60% better price performance over the x86-based EC2 Mac instances for iPhone and Mac app build workloads, according to AWS.
EC2 M1 Mac instances are powered by a combination of two hardware components:
- The Mac mini, featuring M1 SoC with 8 CPU cores, 8 GPU cores, 16 GiB of memory, and a 16 core Apple Neural Engine.
- The AWS Nitro System, providing up to 10 Gbps of VPC network bandwidth and 8 Gbps of EBS storage bandwidth through a high-speed Thunderbolt connection.
