    I noticed that all the Macs with a M1 only have two Thunderbolt/USB4 ports and these are:
    • Mac mini
    • Macbook Pro 13"
    • Macbook Air
    Macs with four Thunderbolt/USB-C ports are using Intel chips.

    The next Macs to transition to Apple Silicon would be the following with four Thunderbolt/USB4 ports by April 2021.
    • Mac mini
    • Macbook Pro 13"
    • Macbook Pro 16"
    I wonder if these iMacs with two Thunderbolt/USB-C ports and four USB3 ports will be included during that Mac event or be part of the mid-2021 update.
    • iMac 21.5"
    • iMac 27"
    iMac Pro and Mac Pro may get an update in late 2021.

    Macs with M1 have Thunderbolt 4 not Thunderbolt 3.



    ATM Big Sur on Apple Silicon does not have driver support for eGPU. Expect it in a future update by the time higher-end Macs are updated to higher-end Apple Silicon.
