What is Dynamic Catching

Apple highlights that the M3 utilises Dynamic Caching, unlike conventional GPU chips, which dynamically allocates local memory in real-time. According to Apple, this method ensures the precise amount of memory needed for a specific task, minimizing any wastage.

Apple identifies this as an industry first, marking it as the foundation of the new GPU architecture introduced by the M3-series chips. Apple affirms that this feature remains entirely transparent to developers and significantly enhances the average GPU utilization. As a result, there are notable performance enhancements, particularly with the most demanding apps and games.

Do you really need the M3 Processor?

If you watched the Apple Scary Fast Event, you would have noticed their repeated emphasis on stepping up from Intel-based computers.

What’s the reason for this emphasis? Well, if you’re transitioning from an Intel-based processor Mac or a Windows PC, you’ll immediately observe a substantial boost in speed, performance, loading times and overall usage experience.

However, if you’re upgrading from M1 or M2 Macs, you won’t notice a significant difference, perhaps just a tiny split-second variance, which, in our view, isn’t substantial enough to justify spending a few thousand ringgit.

Our Advice on M3 MacBook Pro & iMac

If you primarily use your Mac for internet browsing, movie streaming, paperwork and light work, sticking with your current Mac is advisable. However, if your Mac is more than 10 years old or encountering issues, the M2 MacBook Air might be the best choice, as the M1 is already quite powerful. The standard spec M1 with 8GB RAM is adequate for your basic daily needs.

On the other hand, if you’re a professional user involved in coding, design, and audio or video production, consider transitioning to the M3 range and selecting specifications that align with your budget. It’s worth noting that the entry-level M3 processor can connect to one external display, the M3 Pro to two external monitors, while the M3 Max can support up to four external displays.

Pro Tip on M3 MacBook Pro & M3 iMac

As you’re ready to invest thousands or even tens of thousands of ringgit into the new M3 Macs, acquiring Apple Care is an absolute must. It doesn’t matter if you highly trust Apple’s quality or have immense confidence in it.
