Another i9 throttling issue reporting in
Just got mine earlier today and I haven’t seen the clock speed go anywhere higher than 4.2ish. If anything when the performance is needed it’s going down and I’ve had it go as far as 800…
My usage would be for web/IOS development, graphic design work, with some occasional gaming, in hopes of going from two computers, a MBA and a desktop, to a single machine.
If anyone wants me to test something, let me know. I have League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Cities Skyline, Civ V, and Diablo 3 installed; VMs of Ubintu, Win8, and Win10; and Xcode and Android dev studio.
This might have to be returned this before next week while I’m traveling, feels bad man…
Edit: I have to say it’s so nice to have multiple VMs running all at once (Ubuntu and Win10), 2 cores and 4GB ram each and still be able to function in OSX. With all this running, the CPU is still around 3-4ghz with 85ish C temps. Fans are one but it’s to be expected with this load.
Edit 2: Cortona install assistance is so welcoming in Win10.
Edit 3: The Y button gets hot AF, clocked in at 115 F
Edit 4: Whelp it’s been reset to factory and in the box for return. Sorry if some of you didn’t like what I found but I’m not the only one, see the r/apple front page. My biggest issue is that the extra cost for the on paper specs weren’t ever achieved, so in my mind, why pay for it. Your thoughts might be different and that’s okay. We’re all people with different wants and needs.
