Apple Silicon Major Speed Improvement

I just finished testing my office management suite on the Apple Silicon Native version. I’m running it on an M1 Mac Mini with Studio Display. The speed increase is quite remarkable. As some of you may be aware, I have this complex, multi-database application that I have asked many times for tricks and help to speed it up over the past couple of years.

The main screens are very graphics heavy with hundreds to over a thousand lookups with text alignment and colored flags. It appears the speed is now about 5X faster. To switch to another date in the calendar took about 5 seconds before and now it is about one second.

I’m greatly relieved and my confidence in Jim’s work and Pan’s power has been well placed. I’m more confident that I will have my code completely updated before the 2013 iMac dies and Pan 6 goes with it.
