How much RAM are you getting in your iMac? I really dislike the lack of RAM-expandability in the M1-based Apple offerings, as detailed in articles like this:

Theoretically, you can upgrade RAM & SSD on your M1 Mac mini, but you shouldn't | AppleInsider

Been busy last few months adding p-1 factoring support to the in-development v20 code - stage 2 really benefits from lots of RAM. Glad I always use humbler micro-PC-style systems among my optimization targets, making sure stage 2 performs at least halfway-decently with just 4-16GB RAM will also come in handy on M1 systems.
