M1 Mac mini with 10Gb Ethernet interface news

The retail version of Mac mini equipped with the M1 chip currently only provides a Gigabit Ethernet interface, but Apple has listed multiple M1-based Mac mini logic boards for Apple authorized service providers in the internal parts list. These logic boards are equipped with 10Gb Ethernet interface.

Authorized service providers can order the aforementioned logic boards (in limited quantities), but the exact reason is not yet known.

Apple also continues to sell Intel-based Mac mini models, which have an optional 10Gb Ethernet interface
