MacBook Pro M3 Max - Any users yet?

Has anyone tried Cubase on the M3 Max yet? I know it’s overkill for my work flow, but I need a new MacBook after damaging my M1 screen, and want to future proof myself. Keen to know if Cubase can use all that extra power.



From the tests I have seen, Cubase is the only DAW, alongside Reaper, that uses fully ALL the CPU’s both Performances and Efficiency.

I’ve read the opposite, since the M2 has fewer performance cores.

You’re answering a question nobody asked.

That’s the thing. You’re not helping. You’re just saying what you know, regardless of the fact that it’s answering the actual question or not.

I would also like to know if any has the M3 max with Cubase ??

I have the M2 Max it was a big jump from the M1 Max , I only upgrade for the Ram , but now you can have 128Gb … I may go M3 Max … be nice to know how it is ???

It’s very, very good. Lots of power, total silence. M3 max is nearly as fast as M2 ultra.

Thanks Richard , did you by any chance have or use and m3 max with cubase ? To compare

I have only had the M2 Max for a years , the 128tb ram would be very handy which is way I’m thinking of a change ,
