The 2021 MacBook Pro has big memory card issues. Apple is silent for now

Published

on

One of the key features of the 2021 MacBook Pro is the return of the SD card slot. However, new laptop users are now complaining about problems with the SD card reader.

In particular, users have reported very slow transfer rates and inaccessible files. As noted by MacRumors, numerous reviews confirm a serious issue on the new 14- and 16-inch 2021 MacBook Pro models.

One 14 ” MacBook Pro user with M1 Pro chip writes that it takes the laptop about 1 minute to recognize the SD card and an error message pops up from time to time. Another user says Finder crashes when Mac tries to read SD card.

This is very unpleasant. I was hoping that importing from an SD card, including image previews, would be fast on my new 14-inch MacBook Pro. I have a fairly new 64GB SD card that worked fine. But it takes a few minutes to display photos on MacBook Pro via SD card slot and sometimes crashes halfway. Sometimes Finder crashes too.

Another user notes that formatting the SD card through the MacBook Pro does not solve the problem in most cases. Some users also confirm that the same SD card works fine when using a USB-C adapter.

The only thing that is stable is that if the card works, it always works, and if the card doesn’t work properly, it never works. Reformatting even to all other possible formats does not work. Sandisk, Sony, Samsung, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, UHS-I, UHS-II, micro-SD, FAT32, exFAT, no difference. 100% of my maps work fine through an adapter.

At this point, Apple has yet to officially acknowledge this issue. It is not yet known if this is a simple software bug or a hardware issue.

In the SiSoftware Sandra database, Intel’s top 3D accelerator of the Arc Alchemist line based on the DG2-512EU graphics processor was noted. Earlier we already wrote that Intel saw this model as a competitor to the Radeon RX 6700 XT and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070, but judging by the benchmark test, the most powerful new-generation Intel graphics card turned out to be faster than the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti.

The test result of the Intel 3D card is 9017 Mpix/s. For comparison, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti has 8369.51 Mpix/s, the Radeon RX 6700 XT has 7910.91 Mpix/s. But the Radeon RX 6800 with a score of 10607.29 Mpix/s is unattainable. Interestingly, the result of the base video card of the Alchemist line, Arc A380 on GPU DG2-128EU, is 2956.10 Mpix/s. That is, its productivity is exactly three times less than that of its older sister.

According to SiSoftware Sandra, Intel’s top-end Arc Alchemist 4096 graphics card has up to 2.1 GHz stream processors, 4 MB L2 cache, and 16 GB GDDR6 memory. The memory bus is 256-bit.

According to the latest rumors, discrete Intel Arc Alchemist GPUs will be released before the end of the current quarter, but these will be mobile versions. And discrete solutions will go on sale in the second quarter.
