This week, Theo showed the group his work in Blender https://www.blender.org/ then four members of the group downloaded an example from blender. Following instructions from Theo, each person loaded the same example and measured the time taken to render it. The winner was a razer blade. https://www.razer.com/gb-en/pc/gaming-laptops .
The MacBook M1 max was second, but blender will not be optimised for the apple silicon until the new year. Apple are supporting the effort, and the M1 max will be expected to outperform the razer blade once support is available.
