Just the day before, the Mac Studio computer went on sale, and tech bloggers have already begun to publish reports on the internal structure of the machine. The authors of the YouTube channel Max Tech demonstrated in the video the impressive size of the M1 Ultra chip and a slot for a second solid state drive.
Opening the Mac Studio case was not so easy: no screws are visible from the outside, but we managed to get to them by carefully removing the rubber ring glued to the base. Almost immediately after removing the cover, an SSD slot was discovered, and the authors of the review concluded that the configuration of the machine could be improved. Apple’s website says the drive is “not user accessible” on Mac Studio , but that may not be the verdict either.
Max Tech suggested that in the future the company will still open up such an opportunity, as it once was with the Mac Pro. The authors of the review conducted an experiment and without much difficulty pulled the drive out of the main slot to connect it to the second one. But with RAM, this will no longer work – it is soldered on the M1 Ultra chip itself. Apparently, this is one of the reasons why the processor turned out to be very large. In a visual comparison, it turned out to be about four times larger than the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X.
