Shortcomings of Apple M1 Mac mini
Posted 2 Jan 2021 by Heisenberg Heuristics
I cannot recommend the Apple M1 Mac mini, at least for Rosetta. My old Linux box with 8 cores, 16M memory -- only used 5M -- would process 8 tasks in about 8 hours. The estimated time for a Rosetta task is now 36 hours. Only 1 to 3 are running, 2 to 4 tasks are waiting for memory.
Time to repair the Linux box.
