Adobe has now created M1-supported versions of Premiere Pro and many other apps. Apparently, it is hyper-speeding the software.
Those of us lucky enough to own one of the Mac machines that contain the M1 chips (a group I am seriously considering joining) will be really happy.
Apple has revealed some third-party benchmark data that shows more than significant improvements in performance and pretty much everything having to do with being Premiere Pro User. Faster exports, better response times and overall performance, and even improved battery life (on their laptops). They also have M1-natively supported versions for Illustrator, InDesign and. announced Lightroom Classic.
Premiere ProM1 support is still in beta but will be released soon.
Here’s a closer look at some of the benchmark data.
- Import, playback and export improvements
- XAVC S 4K footage import speeds are 187% faster
- ProRes 422 encoding is 129% faster
- Faster overall performance
- Start time 50% faster
- Save projects 168% faster (that’s important to me)
- Performance improvements for Adobe Sensei and AI functions
- Scene editing detection a whopping 430% faster
These are just some of the benchmark data we have collected. If you want to have a complete view of the data, it is available here. There is also data on the rest of the locals M1 Creative Cloud apps.
So if you have an M1 chip, thank your lucky stars. Your days of sitting and unnervingly waiting for your project to be saved may be drawing to a close.
