The most powerful version of Apple’s new MacBook Pro, the 16-inch Pro with the M1 Max processor, will have a special setting called “High Power” mode.
A few days ago, MacRumors employee Steve Moser found evidence of the “High power” mode in the macOS Monterey code, along with a description that reads, “Your Mac is optimizing performance to better support resource-intensive tasks. This can result in louder fan noise.”
Now MacRumors has Confirmed with Apple that the new mode will only appear on the most powerful configurations of the 16-inch MacBook Pro. This setting will likely be useful for people who perform very compute-intensive tasks on their computers, such as: B. rendering large files or (why not) playing a game.
Although the 14-inch MacBook Pro can also be configured with the M1 Max chip, MacRumors claims the setting will only be available on the 16-inch MacBook Pro with the M1 Max chip.
Earlier this week, Apple launched the new MacBook Pro, which comes in numerous configurations, with the key elements being the display size (14.2 or 16.2 inches) and the processor (M1 Pro or M1 Max). The maxed out M1 Max has 10 CPU cores and 32 GPU cores and Apple says it’s up to four times faster than last year’s M1 chip (which was pretty impressive already).
