We all know very well that after a few years of being more indifferent about updates to its hardware, the tech giant Apple has been more active and periodically updating its computer components. However, now according to the latest reports, the tech giant Apple’s most powerful MacBook Pro 2018 has some serious CPU throttling issues.
Apple’s Most Powerful MacBook Pro (2018) Has Some Serious CPU Throttling Issues
After a few years of being more indifferent about updates to its hardware, the tech giant Apple has been more active and periodically updating its computer components.
The latest update came at the end of last week, with a new lineup in MacBook Pro, bringing new arguments. The Intel i9 processor was one of the novelties, but this processor may be bringing problems to the 15-inch MacBook Pro.
It was at the end of last week that the tech giant Apple, without any notice, announced to the world the update to the MacBook Pro line with Touch Bar and Touch ID. These new devices have brought a deep update to the hardware and even some important news. The arrival of the Intel i9 processor was probably the most significant.
Now, after many user requests, it is possible to buy a 15-inch MacBook Pro with this powerful Intel processor, priced at $3900. This will be a machine of high power processing and prepared for intensive use.
The situation now revealed is that this processor can have serious heating problems and not prepared to be incorporated into this chassis. The situation is so severe that the processor can not maintain its base speed in peak situations, having to be decelerated to cool down.
Compared to other models, both with MacOS and Windows, video rendering times were higher than other models. In the 2017 MacBook Pro, it took 35m and 22s and the newest model, despite the Core i9, took 39m and 37s. The cause is perfectly identified and is in the heating of the processor and the slowing of the clock to mitigate the heating problems.
The YouTuber that did these tests ended up doing a different analysis and when putting the new MacBook Pro inside a refrigerator the rendering times eventually diminished, reinforcing that the problem is even in the excessive heating.
It is unknown how or even if the tech giant Apple will solve this problem, but the truth is that this model, which was expected to give high performance ends up failing at key moments.
