A nice find however is that initial match&align is much faster when you activate "Use CPU when performing GPU acc. processing" in the Metashape GPU preferences. This speed improvement is likely a M1Max design side effect and likely also applies to the Mi1Max 24C version.

Hate to burst your bubble, but this has nothing to do with the M1 architecture. The same is true on my Intel Core i9 10900K RTX 3090 desktop. I highly recommend always enabling it on the alignment stage.

Hello all,

Recently I have come across the benchmarks (which include Metashape) for Apple M1 / M2 in comparison to AMD and Intel based platforms:
https://www.techspot.com/review/2499-apple-m2/
Unfortunately, the article is lacking the details regarding Metashape version used, processing parameters and dataset size, but still could be useful at least for rough comparison.
Best regards,
