Windows seems to be tuned completely for performancejohidi wrote: ↑Thu Apr 30, 2020 2:39 amI actually have the 2018 fully hooked up macbook pro. So, I'm probably on the shittier end because that's when they had the i9 issue. I honestly regret buying it over windows now because I mainly use Ableton on this and light browsing. The noise is so freaking annoying and I've tried every solution possible with no difference. Logic runs perfectly fine unless I have a lot of tracks running with VSTs and stuff. But, ableton kicks in fans way earlier then if I were to do similar project in Logic. I'm too scared to install those apps and overheat. I do have Gswitch downloaded, is it supposed to be on default settings of dynamic switching?shortshortshortlong wrote: ↑Thu Apr 30, 2020 12:01 amWindows is tuned for the normals out there who want performancejohidi wrote: ↑Wed Apr 29, 2020 8:00 pmSetup bootcamp and tried Live. The fan kicked in faster actually. Windows from what I am reading can't switch between two GPUs, so it's using the Radeon Pro from the start. I think it comes down to apple wanting to make these laptops thin and the lack of airflow is shooting up the fans like crazy. I guess we gotta live with it
They actually fixed the lack of airflow in the 16 by changing the heat sink design and ramping up the fans. It’s possible to install an app and have a different fan curve to make it quieter. Reportedly 75c is ok for a computer to run at but do your own research
I much prefer the laptop form factor so i just might install those three apps (fan curve adjustment, disable turbo boost, gswitch) and live with something less than an imac quality display.
Its annoying shrug
Reportedly the 15 inch models are tuned to run quieter than the 16 at the expense of performance. You can try getting a setup where you run the macbook from outside the room or from a closet but that also comes with risks
I suspect a 1080p or 1440p monitor will help it stay quiet.
I have tried the app that turns turbo off, it seems to work fine as it reduces heat not increases it. But obviously DYOR and don’t blame me if something goes wrong
