I've seen reports indicating that the new M1X-based MacMini will have memory options up to 64GB. Performance of the M1X should far exceed anything we've seen with Intel-based systems and should drive pricing of the "old" M1-based MacMini down even further than the current lowest price of $799 for the 16GB version.
Isn't the M1X rumor ditched at this point? I thought they went the route of using the announced M1 Pro and M1 Max processors.

@liriolebron Looks like you are correct. The new Mini should have the same CPU as the new MacBookPro which is M1 Pro or M1 Max. The memory options up to 64GB should still be accurate (since that is available in the new MBP). Is The M1X vs Pro/Max just a product naming change? Looks like the 8/10 core options in Max and Pro are consistent with M1X rumors.

EDIT: According to techradar, the M1X looks to have been released as the M1 Pro, so this does appear to be just a product name change. Maybe, when the M1"X" rumor started, the "X" was Apple's placeholder for the TBD "Max" and "Pro" names? I'm just guessing.

as developer, I think intel is more stable for now. I've concern about M1 Mini and G5 with I9 before, so I tried with M1 for brandnew experience.
M1 is really fast, cool and quite slient even I use 2, 3 emulator at same time but the software on M1 isn't support fully.
In some situation, we need to handle with old things that shouldn't upgrade (It will totally crash if upgrade to lastest to support M1) like legacy source code then I'm in deep trouble

@dolphin19303 I think you are correct. I'm currently staying with Intel because of reliable/stable support for my developer apps. It is only a matter of time before these apps are fully supported on M1 platform. Until that time, we have a very reliable, stable and fast platform with this HackMini8,1.

Updated to Monterey, without any issues to a test HDD drive on a 800G4 mini With OC 0.7.4
(Test drive: Cloned my SSD to a HDD with SuperDuper! Changed the drives, and updated from there. The EFI was originally not cloned, so I had to boot from USB drive and then mounted it and wrote it to EFI, before updating), everything went smooth afterwards. Hope this helps.
I‘ll do it tomorrow to my actual work SSD, but with great confidence now.

EDIT: I tested with my work SSD and seems to work and boot as fast as it did with macOS 11. The only thing though, is that it no longer recognises my Bluetooth dongle, so there's something needed there. I'll read the other forums to look for the solution. Or will somebody point me to it? Thanks.
