Have you played Minecraft on an M1 Mac?


Looking at the reviews for the new Macs, especially the MacBook Pro, I'm very interested in switching from my Surface Pro 4 to a Mac. I was a Mac user back in the Snow Leopard to Mavericks days but I switched to Windows some time ago.

I have a lot of programs that I use that users say that work perfectly on M1 however, do you know whether Minecraft (Java) can be played on an M1 Mac? 's among my favorite games, and I don't think I could replace my PC with a machine that doesn't support my favorite game. Java is available on ARM however I've never heard of anyone playing Minecraft on an M! Mac!

Thanks! (I hope I put it in the right place!)

It is highly recommended. The M1 Mac will blow your surface out of the water performance wise. It's just a matter of time until Minecraft is optimized for the M1. Until then, you can really run both versions. Bedrock (because M1's can natively run iOS/iPadOS apps now) as well as Java (translated real-time running Rosetta 2 that is built into. It's not noticeable).

I have side loaded Minecraft to my M1 Mac but keyboard and mouse don't work. How did you side load it sir?


Information from the video: Java does not have an native M1 application, so it has to use Rosetta 2 Emulation.

he compared the Baseline 7-core GPU MacBook Air to the Baseline 8-core GPU MacBook Pro. The MBP produced the world (same seeds on both) at a speed of a second however the MacBook Air seemed a bit faster for whatever reason (he used the same graphics settings on both).

The issue with this comparison is that he left the vsync feature on, which means that the FPS is limited to 60 FPS. It would have been interesting to see how much it could go.

The iOS, Android, and Windows 10 Minecraft versions all are compatible. However, the Pocket Edition Realms server will not allow the PC and Mac versions to play each one another. In other words, if you have an iOS device, and your friends are all using Android you can still play together.
