I was wondering whether anyone continued to experiment with the Mac M1 series.
What are your thoughts so far and how does it perform in comparison to your old setup.
I personally do not own a M1, but am considering purchasing one because my current setup (Mac Mini + RX580 in Sonnet eGFX) is having stability issues.
Edit: I mentioned I use the VEGA56, which I do not have. It’s an RX580 instead.
M1 is great but mimoLive is not yet fully supported on M1. I’m using it every day and it’s significantly faster than the 6 core Intel Mac mini with my small eGPU (not the Vega56).
What are the stability issues you have?
Hi @Oliver_Boinx, thanks for your reply.
I will definitely wait until it’s fully supported by you guys. It is great to hear that it’s performing well. The main reason I am interested is because I embed the graphics produced by MimoLive in my ATEM Television Studio HD by using SDI playout (Key + Fill), and therefore like to use another computer to do the recording and live-streaming. The Mac Mini is currently placed in a Sonnet Rack enclosure, which can hold another Mac Mini
Concering the stability issues, I get a random black screen every now and then when the eGPU is running. The graphics card goes in safety mode (full spinning fans) and I’m forced to force restart the computer. I am in contact with Sonnet already and active on the eGPU reddit and forum to figure out where this problem arises. Someone pointed out this is a known issue with Catalina, so I might update to Big Sur very soon and see if it helps.
