Speaking of timing, @codeslice just released a great video in which he benchmarked his new M1 MBP (fully specced-out!) against his previous Mac Mini. As always, it’s produced to Adam’s amazing standards, and I was impressed by the dedication he put into making sure the numbers are correct. Definitely check out the video, you might be surprised about some of the results!
Of course, I couldn’t resist reaching out to Adam to ask if he could run some additional benchmarks for me, and he agreed - thanks again, Adam!
The benchmarks I asked him to run are:
* Performing a clean build of MakeItSo (my replica of Apple’s Reminders app)
* Performing an incremental build of the same code
This is especially interesting for those of use who use Firestore, which is known to increase build times quite a bit.
So, thanks to Adam giving up his lunch break, please enjoy the following diagrams which demonstrate how much time you will save by getting yourself a shining new M1 MBP!
It’s quite impressive to see the build times cut in half on an M1-based Mac. The good news for those of us who might not upgrade to a new machine just yet is that the incremental build times aren’t too bad.: 10.5 seconds on a MacMini vs. 5.5 seconds on an M1 Max. Ten seconds are just enough time to take a sip of tea or coffee, and as we all know, it’s important to stay hydrated 💧
