Are there any benchmarks yet for Mathematica 12.1 on the new (13") M1 MacBook Air or (13") M1 MacBook Pro?

  • $\begingroup$ Mathematica already runs on Raspberry Pi, so support for Apple Silicon shouldn't be difficult. $\endgroup$ – John Smith Nov 19 '20 at 2:24

    $\begingroup$ @JohnSmith It seems that there isn't even a Fortran compiler yet for Apple's new platform. Most scientific software relies on Fortran one way or another. The relevant gcc/gfortran issue is "suspended" and the developers there claim that it takes several months' of work to implement support. $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Nov 19 '20 at 9:31
  • $\begingroup$ I have had occasion to use the gcc/gfortran development branch mentioned there and it is not in such bad shape actually $\endgroup$ – ilian Nov 19 '20 at 16:06

    $\begingroup$ There is a thread with the same question at community.wolfram.com/groups/-/m/t/2118125. There, the WolframMark benchmark was used using Mathematica 12.1.1 with the Rosetta 2 translation layer. $\endgroup$ – Qbyte Nov 21 '20 at 21:03
