I connected the OWC Thunderbolt Hub to the M1 mac mini. Once done, things went downhill. Waking the mini up from sleep took at least 1 minute. Once logged in, istatmenu showed the left 4 cores quite busy for some time. The mini itself felt slower. After several days, I disconnected the OWC Thunderbolt Hub and now the mini is back to its former performance. Do you guys see problems with this combo as well? Maybe I just have a faulty unit.
I’ll be returning the Hub, but can anyone recommend another Hub that seems to be “optimized” for use with M1?
