Hand in hand with Apple's 15-inch MacBook Pro 2018 with i7 processor



A week ago, Apple's latest MacBook Pro refresh was released, and we've now spent some time on the 15-inch base model with a six-core i7 processor. Read on for our first look and impressions and benchmarks for one of the most popular MacBook Pro configurations.

Design

From the outside there is no discernible difference between the 2018 MacBook Pros and the ones from the last few years. On the left side there are two Thunderbolt 3 ports and on the right side another pair next to a headphone jack.

Colors are still visible on the latest displays. The new unit now supports True Tone, Apple's color temperature shift function, which sounds the display based on the environment. It uses a pair of ambient light sensors integrated into the display to detect the lighting in the room and then adjusts the display. This technology was introduced to the iPad Pro several years ago, before it appeared on the iPhone and now appeared on the Mac.

True Tone is definitely a feast for the eyes in our fluorescent office. Previously, the display would appear a little blue. But now the color fits much better and is not so tiring when you're staring at it all day.

Apple has had some of the best built-in laptop speakers in the industry, and the new model has improved. Apple clearly uses its audio knowledge with a much fuller sound. There are noticeable improvements both in the midrange and in the depths of these new speakers.

The trackpad is still as big as ever and sits right under the new third generation butterfly keyboard. These are the same chiclet style buttons, but have a new butterfly mechanism that is quieter.

Third-Gen Keyboard

We were very excited to test this new keyboard, particularly to identify changes that resulted in improved reliability, which could be a problem for owners of earlier models with the Butterfly keyboard. 19659004] 2018 15-inch MacBook Pro Keyboard "class =" lazy "data-original =" https://photos5.appleinsider.com/gallery/26826-38849-2018-MacBook-Pro-Keyboard-l.jpg "/>

Not long after the first MacBook Pros arrived, iFixit discovered that under each key there was a new silicone membrane proposed by the repair company that would try to hide underneath, these unpredictable debris is said to be the cause of many failures, so using this movie to keep it off – if that is indeed the case – can go a long way in the direction of reliability.

This movie also contributes to the quieter keys noticeable. Fast typing can still make loud clicks But on the whole, the new keyboard was a big difference from before.

It still has the same key travel and typing feel as the MacBook Pro 2016 and 2017, but with less noise. [19659009] Hey, Siri

Above the keyboard is the same touch bar that many love (and many do not). The Touch ID on the right side of the Touch Bar is still running on one of the Apple chips, the T2. This secure chip first debuted in the iMac Pro, with MacBook Pro using the T1's previous generation.

Apple's T2 can take more system processes and is actually able to "Hey, Sirius" for the first time on a Mac.

Apple explains this feature right after the first boot of the new machines and introduces users through the voice registration process similar to iOS.

The setup is the same – macOS asks this The user can repeat various commands, which are also a kind of refresher of what Siri can do on the Mac, like checking the weather and opening certain folders.

That paid off well for ourselves in one room, other Apple devices that support Hey, Siri. Speech recognition seemed exactly right and it definitely seemed a bit more useful. With macOS Mojave it will be even more helpful this autumn.

In macOS Mojave, Siri gets new features, including new knowledge areas, the ability to find your various devices, and support for HomeKit.

Performance

  2018 15-inch MacBook Pro

For these tests, we have housed a six-core Intel CPU in our 15-inch MacBook Pro. It is a Core i7 processor with a basic speed of 2.2 GHz with boost speeds up to powerful 4.1 GHz.

Geekbench 4 returned 4,884 for single-core and 22,179 for the multi-core. Although we have the base 15-inch model, it still surpasses the top model in 2017, which received 4,360 and 11,979 for single and multi-core scores.

That's well beyond the values ​​we once based on 13-inch Pro, which earned 4,602 and 16,699 for the single and multi-core tests.

Graphically, internally we have integrated Intel UHD 630 graphics. In our Geekbench test, our 15-inch MacBook Pro with an Intel HD 530 actually clocked up in late 2016. The two-year-old model achieved 20,908, while the base model of 2018 with 15 inches received 20,179. There is not much difference, but it is worth mentioning.

In the real world, thermal limitations can limit the maximum performance the MacBook Pro could have. We've already worked on solving the problem without having a patch from Apple, and we'll catch up on it.

This year, Apple also upgraded RAM to DDR4 instead of LPDDR3, which is definitely I'll gain a bit more power than years ago. To compensate, the internal batteries are slightly larger across the board. However, this should not mean additional usage time.
