The MacBook Pro on the M2 processor was only 10% more powerful than the MacBook Pro on the M1 – all because of overheating

Video blogger Vadim Yuryev conducted a study and found out that the MacBook Pro on the M2 processor heats up much more than other Apple laptops. During the test, the processor reached a temperature of 108°C, and the cooling fans were running at a maximum speed of more than 7 thousand revolutions per minute.

The compact 13-inch MacBook Pro got to the test for the blogger. For verification, he used the export of Canon RAW video files in 8K resolution. After reaching this indicator, the processor began to reduce the frequency – the so-called “throttling”. As a result of some, the frequency dropped by almost half, which made it possible to drop the power consumption from 29.46 W to 7.31 W. This made it possible to reduce the temperature to 84°C, but then the figures began to rise again.

Yuryev also conducted tests on other Apple laptops. As it turned out, due to overheating, the MacBook Pro on M2 is only 10% more powerful than the MacBook Pro on M1. This is how the time results for exporting Canon RAW video files at 8K resolution look like:

MacBook Pro on M1 – 21 minutes 40 seconds;

MacBook Pro on M2 – 19 minutes 40 seconds;

MacBook Pro on M1 Pro – 11 minutes 21 seconds.

That’s not the only issue with the new MacBook Pros. Previously, users have noticed that the SSD drives in the MacBook Pro on the M2 are slower than those on the M1-based counterpart. The speed drop for reading is 50%, for writing – 30%. The reasons are still unknown.

Samsung has started teasing Twitter users with an advertisement for a new SSD. The company does not specify the details, calling the new Ultimate SSD.

Samsung is preparing an

Third-party sources expect this to be a new SSD (or a whole series) with a PCIe 5.0 interface. These may well be models of the Samsung 990 SSD line, which were previously lit up in the databases of regulators.

Samsung previously released the PM1743 PCIe 5.0 SSD for the data center, and it offers data transfer speeds of up to 14GB/s, so you can expect similar numbers from the 990 Pro.

Intel can make the Core i9-13900K even more attractive with a new auto-overclocking mode.

Some motherboards will turn the Core i9-13900K into a power consumption monster.  The power limit will increase to 350W

The source reports that some motherboards based on 700-series chipsets will allow you to activate an increased power limit. In this case, we are talking about a value of 350 watts. For comparison, Alder Lake has a maximum of 241 watts.

The values ​​of PL1 and PL2 for the new CPUs will hardly change and will amount to 125 and 253 W, respectively. But there will also be an opportunity to remove the limit, thanks to which the Core i9-13900K will be able to consume up to 350 watts. In this case, of course, the motherboard will need a powerful power supply subsystem, and the processor will need a productive CO.

CPU performance in this mode can increase by 15%, although this will depend on the tasks. Whether the Core i9-13900KS, which was previously assigned a frequency of up to 6 GHz, will be released under such conditions is now unclear.

This is Ryzen 7 7700X Pre sale copy first lit up

The first photo of the Ryzen 7 7700X processor has appeared on the Web, which should be presented on August 29, and it is expected to go on sale on September 27.

This is Ryzen 7 7700X.  Pre-sale copy first lit up in the photo

Apparently, the picture shows a pre-sale version. Perhaps this is one of the copies for media reviews.

The Ryzen 7 7700X is an octa-core SMT capable CPU up to 5.4GHz with a TDP of 105W. According to leaks, such a processor will cost about $ 300, that is, it will not rise in price relative to its predecessor at the start of sales.

Recall, in addition to this model, a 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X, a 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X and a six-core Ryzen 5 7600X are also expected. Later the line may well expand.
