It is not unusual if the higher the computer processor specifications, the possibility to produce heat is also greater. The easiest example is the Intel Core i9, the processor with the highest specifications for the current Intel Core i class.
\MacBook Pro 2018 which was officially released a few days ago also did not miss getting the Intel Core i9 version. Besides the price is very expensive, of course users have to be prepared with the heat generated by the processor.
How hot is the MacBook Pro 2018 with this Intel Core i9? A YouTuber named Dave Lee claims that the thermal design on the MacBook Pro 2018 is apparently still not strong enough to cool the Intel Core i9.
As a result, the MacBook Pro gets very hot quickly. If it is too hot, the computer’s performance will be slowed down to suppress excessive heat production. Instead of getting the best performance from Intel Core i9, users actually get slower performance, equivalent to Intel Core i7 or even as slow as Intel Core i5.
In the video he made, Dave Lee showed that the MacBook Pro 2018 runs slowly when running Adobe Premiere Pro. Lee immediately realized the possible cause was excessive heat. He also believes that there is most likely something wrong with the cooling design on the MacBook Pro, which is less able to cool the engine.
The following is a video from Dave Lee.
For this Intel Core i9 problem, of course this is a very reasonable thing. But Apple still seems not really experienced in handling this one processor. Understandably, this is the first time Apple has provided an Intel Core i9 in its Mac notebook line.
