Apple recognizes the CPU performance issue with MacBook Pro 2018

The cooling system on the new MacBook Pro 2018 has been a big hit these days, and has not exactly received h accolades, quite the contrary. Many users have criticised the excessive heat that the Mac gets when performing a demanding task such as video editing. This was blamed on a cooling system problem that causes professionals to have a bad experience using this Mac.

This amazing problem has been recognized by Apple a few minutes ago , something that surprises us since the same thing didn’t happen when the problem with the second generation butterfly keyboards started. Apple’s release on this subject says the following:

“After extensive performance testing with numerous workloads, we have identified that there is a failure that affects the thermal management system and could lead to low clock speeds under heavy thermal loads on the new MacBook Pro. A fix for these bugs is included in a companion update to MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6. The update was released today and is recommended for installation. We apologize to any customers who have experienced lower performance on their devices.

As we discussed last week, this ventilation failure caused the performance of an i9 processor to be very similar to or worse than that of an i7, which is incomprehensible . If we wanted to have optimum performance on a MacBook Pro with an i9, we had to put it in a freezer, and the processor would start working at its maximum speed, as it wasn’t properly cooled.

Apple appears to have run tests afterward to assess the performance of its processor and concluded that if there is a problem in the software that prevents the fans from starting when the processor is under some pressure, to preserve the performance silence of the Mac.

This has been resolved with a complementary update that has been released today, accompanied by the company’s apologies to all those users who have suffered from this problem.

For us, these tests should have been carried out before we released this computer with such a powerful processor. We think that in Apple there is enough intelligence to think that just like they should test how the ventilation reacts to a very high working pressure on the processor.

Anyway, we see with good eyes that Apple has recognized this error so soon, and with a solution as is the software update that we hope will end up solving this error and not aggravating it.
