Yes, I have seen that. But it doesn’t address performance on the Mac Studio with Max CPU.
Already when I do a complete pdflatexmk run of my 700-page book on a 13” MacBook Air M1 with 8-core CPU, 16GB RAM, and 1 TB SSD, it takes about 30 seconds less than on my mainstay machine, a2019 iMac 27” with 3.6 GHz 8-core Intel i9, 64 GB RAm, and 2 TB SSD. On the latter, a complete run takes about 5 1/2 minutes. That seems excruciatingly long when I’m waiting to do further writing or editing after looking at what I have so far, complete with all cross-references filled on.
To have all the needed windows open, that 13” MacBook Air is out of the question, though.
Hence my interest in the M1 Max chip on a desktop.
