Scalability of Focus Stacking: Apple Mac Studio M1 Ultra vs Apple 2019 Mac Pro 28-Core XEON W

Consult with Lloyd on your computer or photographic purchase, backup strategy, archival and storage strategy, etc.

A big thank-you to B&H Photo for sending the $7999 Apple Mac Studio M1 Ultra 20-core CPU / 64-core GPU/ 128GB / 8TB SSD for review. This is exactly the configuration I would buy excepting a preference for a 4TB SSD (only to keep the cost down).

This is an insightful study of just how CPU cores scale on a real-world computing task.

As well as just how and why the 2019 Mac Pro outperforms the Apple Mac Studio M1 Ultra on this task.
