    • @AB. Digital why so? We've all seen the tests, it's pretty close to OLED without the burning... Yes it still has some blooming in extreme cases, but we also gotta keep in mind that this is just the second generation of MICROLED producta

    • @Yassine B I mean if you look at the GFX Benchmark for the Aztec it far surpassed the 100W 3080 and absolutely crushed the 3060. So it did actually outperform it, again we need more detailed reviews and analysis of this. The TombRaider test is testing gaming performance which is dumb since Apple GPU are clocked much lower than RTX 3080 and obviously would lose in such a test but when it comes to more compute practical applications I think we will see a bigger lead on the M1 Max. Again I could be totally wrong this is just me spitballing here from my current understanding of the tech. Also GeekBench is not a good performance evaluator for GPU’s compared to other tests out there so I always take those tests with a mountain sized serving of salt. Dont get me wrong if it truly turns out that Apple did in fact deceive their buyers on performance claims then I will for sure turn agaisnt them but as of yet, I havent seen that. Also and this is something that occured to me recently, Shadow of the tomb raider IS NOT OPTIMIZED FOR M1 MEANING ITS RUNNING THROUGH ROSETTA AND YET SOMEHOW AN EMULATED GAME SCORED 83 FRAMES PER SECOND AT 1440P THINK ABOUT THAT.

    • @Orlando Rodriguez That's my point, they showed that it outperformed already existing GPUs and now we know that it doesn't, which makes Apple a bunch of liars.

      Yassine BYassine BVor Monat
    • @Yassine B Thats a fair point and again Im more than willing to agree with you but I want more results first before we make that conclusion, I know that for gaming it wont compete with the 3080 and what not. But Im curious in other benchmarks and real world performance tests that what I care most about.

      vbddfy euuytvbddfy euuytVor Monat
  • "M! Max and M1 pro are empirically better products if those charts aren't lies" This isn't entirely true. There is a case where M1 Pro/Max are worse than chips that compute less for more energy, and that case relies on software compatibility. We've seen in gaming benchmarks that the Pro/Max perform far worse than the 3080 simply because there are essentially no games designed to run on these chips. World of Warcraft is the only one I'm aware of that is.

  • Did you test the apple silicon premier pro, or still x86? I had a couple apps that had to force over to apple silicon or use the store for to get them on apple silicon vs running the x86 versions. I only ask because they had premier pro as part of their event I thought, so it would be weird for adobe not to have optimized it yet (unless its still coming)

  • Dave, in one of your upcoming videos on the 14 inch model, please address palm comfort. I had a 13 inch 2013 Macbook Pro for years and gave it up because the sharp edge below the trackpad always dug into my palms or wrists and made the unit uncomfortable. Is the new model more rounded? Is the deck longer so that this is no longer an issue? I don't live where I can go check one out.

  • Apple may have the alternative to those graphics chip dependent gaming laptops and desktops and with all the people who couldn't get a graphics card for over a year now . And these laptops are NOT expensive, comparably what a graphics card goes for these days. AMD and Nvidia may have to buckle up, especially Nvidia and their price games, people will buy a $2000 laptop instead, and leave their ecosystem - along with Windows -- for good.

    • You can get a Legion 5 Pro with 5800H and 3070 for less than $2000. Only M1 Max Macbooks can deliver a similar level of gaming performance on *some* games, and for significantly higher price.

  • Hello. Video idea? I’m on the fence of whether to buy a fast Microsoft software running laptop or one of the latest fast Apple laptops. Can you compare some comparable fast MS software based computers from let’s say Dell/HP/Lenovo VS. Apple laptops? It would really help anyone trying to decide whether to stay with a MS based laptop or go with Apple’s. It would be great to see some benchmarks and your general review of these going head to head. Thanks.

  • The thing is, you're gonna use Razer for gaming. What're you gonna use Macbook Pro's gpu for? Nothing if you only game. So, completely pointless if you don't buy into apple's ecosystem. Put a 3090 in the Macbook Pro, hell, let Nvidia make a new gpu, 4090, 5090, 6090 or whatever. Still worthless to someone who plays games. There's no point to buy one if you can't game on the fucking thing. And then there's you talking about it's keyboard, sound system and what have you. Completely pointless review. This is of course, assuming those who use this for professional reasons don't exist. May as well, by the way, because those people will be happy with whatever laptop apple produces. They were already happy with the M1.

  • Apple's macbooks are gonna rape these stupid clunky buggy windows PC. What a surprise actually. This move is quite unlike Apple to basically build the dream laptop. I bought a $3000 (a lot of money to me) MSI GS65 with a 2060. It sucks. Still use my mac way more. It's constantly plugged in. If I use as it's intended as a portable laptop... I'd be lucky if I can get 1 hours battery life out of it, not to mention it has to throttle down by at least half speed so it's almost useless as a laptop.Then there's the sheer amount of heat generated... you can't use these on your lap without burning the shit out of it. And the trackpad is way too wide so you keep touching it unintentionally. And the keyboard layout is crap and so you keep hitting the wrong keys. And windows can't catch up even if they tried to because they can't have an OS that satisfies all hardware configurations without signification compromise. Apple can do it since they control everything.

It looks like the iPhone, ppl like the iPhone you must like that shit in the middle of the screen, I don’t care if you play video games (assuming you can play video games on the M1 max). I really appreciate the impartial review of tech devices you do, not the fanboy review, great job man.

    dolita windodolita windoVor Monat
  • It will be interesting to see how the performance holds up in real world usage and if the performance is consistent or is only that fast in certain workloads and benchmarks. There's also the issue of being limited to MacOS and only applications that have been ported to M1 and the very high price of the actually fast models. That said, it's neat to see what kind of performance and efficiency gains a modern RISC architecture can potentially bring, this is the future of computing IMHO once we can get good enough performance and emulators to support the huge backlog of x86 code.

  • I disagree regarding your comment of underclocking M1-max for the 14inch laptop - reason being is look at the M1 chip in the iPad compared with Air and Pro - the only performance difference between them is thermal limitations on prolonged synthetic benchmarks. I think it's purely for fast charging a much larger battery. Also, the M1-Pro 32 core GPU teraflop rating would suggest those charts are accurate, potentially conservative. There's also the 400GB bandwith and 16 CHANNELS on the 64GB GDDR5LP ram to factor in - would be interesting to see what happens there as a differentiator in performance.

  • I think the charts are correct. I would expect similar real-life performance on these machines. They did the same with the first iteration of the M1 and everything checked out. What they're not open about is the *workload* employed for these benchmarks. This is obviously a marketing strategy. In that sense, I would expect these benchmarks to be close to real-life results but only on certain workloads.
