a first disassembly of the Mac mini reveals the M1 chip

While the first machines equipped with an M1 chip arrive, some users could not resist exposing its guts (thanks to our fiatlux reader who won a month of‘VIP subscription).

We can thus see the truncated IHS (pour Integrateed Heat Spreader) covering the Apple Silicon M1 chip except for the RAM, a 150W power supply (the same as in Intel Mac mini), a compact motherboard, two « retimer » Thunderbolt Intel JHL804R (labeled Thunderbolt 4 but the machine only has Thunderolt 3 and USB 4) which suggests that the M1 chip embeds Thunderbolt 3 controllers (the retimer allowing to increase the distance between the controller and the port without degrading the signal), as well as Texas Instruments CD3218B12 USB controllers.

As a reminder, the Mac mini has a fan, which helps maintain performance, including during intensive and prolonged use. The machine has Wi-Fi 6, one HDMI 2.0 port, two Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports, two USB-A ports, one Gigabit Ethernet port (no optional 10 Gigabit Ethernet unlike the Intel model) , 8 GB of RAM (16 GB optional and the memory is now soldered, no more upgrades possible after purchase) and a 3.5 mm mini jack port. Apple is offering its new Mac mini from 799 euros.
