Apple announced the power consumption and thermal output information of the M1 Mac mini in the support document. Including the latest Mac mini equipped with the M1 chip, its idle power consumption is 6.8W, and the maximum full load is 39W. The idle power consumption of the 2018 Mac mini model equipped with Intel’s 8th generation Core i7-8700B six-core processor is about 20W, and can reach 122W at full load. The power consumption and heat generation of Apple’s self-developed M1 chip are only about one-third of that of Intel x86 chips.

It has been a long time since Apple’s M1 processor was released. Apple has never mentioned the power consumption of the M1 chip. The official document recently gave the answer for the first time.

Apple announced the power consumption and thermal output information of the M1 Mac mini in the support document.
