Petapixel's photographer-centric review of the Mac Studio with M1 Ultra: Insane Power for the Price
Posted by: pRICE cUBE

We also had our benchmarks run through a PC with a 32-core, 3.7Ghz, AMD Threadripper 3970x, an Asus TUF 3090 24GB GPU, and 128 GB of DDR4 3200Mhz RAM which serves as our desktop PC comparison. This computer cost more than $11,000 to build. We recognize that the CPU isn’t the best pick for this kind of work as the computer was purchased for 3D modeling and leans more towards GPU performance. We expect that the results would be better for this PC if we were using an Intel 12900K or an AMD 5950X, but this is what we had access to. Another set of tests for another day, perhaps.

I don't know much about benchmark software these days, but if these numbers are real... dayum....

really good to see that apple wasn't crazy to go it alone with their own processors - looks like this is gonna work out just fine. Too bad I can't afford these awesome machines...

The AMD 3970 cost more than $11,000. How much did the Mac Studio cost - half as much? They should have also recorded power usage and sound level.

An $11000 PC specifically designed for 3D modeling.

TONS of reviews posted today, verge is pretty good, not too long.

It would be nice if they would do a score per dollar (cost) analysis. Might be interesting.

Id assume you would have to factor in what you are building a PC to do?

different processors or video for different tasks.

4TB of Gen 4 NVMe storage is $750... that's a huge savings right away...
