Macs in Chemistry

Comparing a M1 MacBook with Intel MacBookPro for Cheminformatics/CompChem


As some of you may have seen I've started the comparison of my new MacBook Pro Apple M1 max with my old Intel MacBook.


I'm slowly working through a variety of cheminformatics toolkits and computational chemistry applications, I'm trying to run some "real world" workflows so you can see what kind of performance improvement you might expect.

The index page is here and I'll update it as a test more applications

When possible I've used the latest builds for the M1 arm architecture. Both machines were connected to power and had no other applications running. To date I've looked at the following.

More to come.
