Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about that. The GPU Performance is available on Mac Mini if you are connected to a HiDPI (High Dots Per Inch) display, also known as Apple's "Retina Display." I would suggest you connect with the Monitor manufacturer to know if ts a HiDPI monitor or not.

 

Thanks & Regards,

But why would be the GPU function depending on a retina display?
So if I want the full performance out of my M1 chip I have to buy a retina monitor?

It sounds 'strange' maybe to you, but yes, it is for HiDPI/Retina displays because they move a lot of data compared to a 'normal' display...
