M1 Ultra vs M1 Max: Head-to-head photo and video apps

When the M1 Ultra arrived at the DPReview offices, we weren't sure what to expect. Twice as much hardware rarely translates into 2x the performance, but it's also rare that you get a APU that's literally just two of the previous generation APU fused together.

My guess going into these tests was that video editing would see the biggest bump, photo editing wouldn't benefit much, and neither would benefit by 2x because the kinds of creative workflows we test just don't need 128GB of RAM and 64 GPU cores. I was wrong. Of all the use cases we tested, it seems that photo editors who rely on LRC are going to see the biggest performance improvement if they upgrade from the M1 Max to the M1 Ultra, while video editors using either Final Cut Pro or Premiere Pro will have to settle for a smaller performance bump.

It seems that photo editors who rely on Lightroom are going to see the biggest performance improvement if they upgrade from the M1 Max to the M1 Ultra, while video editors using either Final Cut Pro or Premiere Pro will have to settle for a smaller performance bump.
Only you know your workflow and how much time a 10% or 20% speed boost will buy you, but for most users it's probably not going to be worth spending the extra $3,000 required to get double the CPU, GPU, and RAM.
