First of all, the “high power mode” confirmed in the beta version of macOS Monterey can be used with the MacBook Pro 16-inch “M1 Max” equipped model, and it can not be used with other models. I wonder if 14-inch NG means that the body of the 16-inch model must be used to exhaust heat in time. There is also the possibility that the power consumption will be insufficient. How many watts do you use in this mode? What is the chip temperature? When the actual machine comes out, confirmation of this area is a must!
Screen brightness is equivalent to Pro Display XDR
The peak brightness of the screen is 500 nits in SDR, and the peak brightness of 1600 nits is exclusively for HDR contents in full screen. By the way, this is equivalent to that Pro Display XDR, which costs 580,000 yen.
SD card reader up to 250MB / s
The revived SD card reader has a data transfer rate of up to 250MB / s for UHS-II SD cards and up to 90MB / s for UHS-ISD cards. The UHS-II standard is 312MB / s, but why is the speed suppressed? Is a mystery … Is it expressed as an actual measurement value?
I can’t use eGPU!
I was expecting a little, but I didn’t respond. The new MacBook Pro does not support eGPU like the previous M1 equipped Mac. Well, with the M1 Pro and M1 Max, the GPU functionality that was a drawback of the M1 has been greatly enhanced, so you don’t need an eGPU! It may be the performance. Also, I was personally interested in the number of external output displays in the specifications that have already been confirmed. Up to 2 units can be connected with M1 Pro, but up to 4 units can be connected with M1 Max. If you want to increase the number of screens, M1 Max! In addition, I think that there are many things that can be understood only after touching the actual machine. Even in Gizmodo, there are 14-inch and 16-inch spots, so if you are interested, please check those reviews before judging! Source: MacRumors
