Insider and YouTube blogger Vadim Yuryev tested the new 13-inch MacBook Pro on the M2 and found out that the new product has overheating problems that lead to serious processor throttling.
Vadim managed to heat up the M2 chip in the new MacBook Pro to the absolute limit of 108 degrees Celsius while exporting 8K Canon RAW video. In a tweet, the blogger explained that the useless cooling system is to blame for the throttling of the new MacBook Pro with the M2. He believes that the novelty needs an improved cooling system with two fans instead of one.
Interestingly, at the time of export, the single fan of the 13-inch MacBook Pro on the M2 was running at a maximum speed of 7200 rpm. That is, the laptop absolutely could not cool down, because of which it had to reduce the processor frequency by almost half from 3200 MHz to 1894 MHz, and the GPU frequency from 1393 MHz to a staggeringly low 289 MHz.
It is worth noting that there are more professional solutions for editing video in 8K Canon RAW, including Mac Studio or MacBook Pro M1 Pro/M1 Max. With other tasks, the novelty copes better than last year’s MacBook Pro and MacBook Air on M1. Regular users will have enough performance from the latest M2 chip in the updated MacBook Pro, so there is no reason to worry.
