Ken (our co-founder and CEO) was invited on The Changelog podcast in the wake of Apple’s “One More Thing” event to share his early experience with M1-powered Macs and what this means for the future of the Omni Group on the Mac platform.
Ken and The Changelog guys discussed:
- The Omni Group’s many platform transitions over the years
- What it took to get our apps ready for Big Sur and the M1
- How Apple can optimize their chips in ways Intel won’t
- Ken’s early benchmarks of building our apps with the M1
- And much more 😉
On that last point, Ken had this to say:
So what I’m finding – one of our apps takes about ten minutes to build on an Intel MacBook Pro; the latest one that you could get, maxed out with 32 GB of RAM, and so on. And when I pulled the M1 Air and I tried doing the same build, it took five minutes and fifty seconds.
