A few days ago Apple has updated the basic version of MacBook Pro. The novelty has received a new Quad-core Intel eighth-generation touch panel touch Bar, and the keyboard “butterfly” of the third generation. Certainly, many are considering this laptop to buy – considering its relatively small cost (1299 dollars). As shown themselves updated laptop for long periods? The answer to this question is, journalists of the edition Ai.
The performance of the upgraded MacBook Pro
The publication decided to test the MacBook Pro 13 (2019) on the subject of trolling. The fact that the laptop got quite a powerful processor Intel Core i5-8257U with a frequency of 1.4 GHz (Turbo Boost up to 3.9 GHz). In the case of the laptop only one fan. TDP in this case fit to 15 W, whereas in the older models, this value is 28 W.
Do single fan with their tasks and whether performance under intense loads?
To get the answer to this question, the journalists decided to use a benchmark Cinebench R20. This performance test does difficult calculations and provides 100% of the CPU load. Ultimately, the benchmark “was run” ten times.
To monitor temperature, frequency and other values used Intel Power Gagdet.
The results of the experiment
The results were quite interesting. It turned out that immediately after starting Cinemabench R20, the processor begins to operate at a maximum clock frequency of 3.9 GHz. The temperature of the chip is growing rapidly, but not reaches to 100 degrees. Some time later, the CPU frequency dropped to 2.6-2.7 GHz, remaining that way for the remaining duration.

In the test basic version of MacBook Pro (2019) averaged (after 10 runs) 1583 points.
Journalists Ai note that the final result exceeded their expectations. Despite the fact that the reference nominal frequency of the processor is 1.4 GHz, in real tests, the CPU was always working at much higher frequencies. Trolling, of course, but it is minimal. Given the high performance of the chip, thin body and the presence of only one fan, this shortcoming can close your eyes.
