The new M1 Macbook lineup is impressive - but did Apple leave performance on the table in the Macbook Air by going fanless?

  • interesting fix, the fanless technology never made sense to me, i mean how much can a fan be noisy and disturbing? To me it seems just a forced diversification of the market

  • @Linus Can you improve the M1 macmini perfs using a similar approach? Who cares if the chassis of the mini heats up... However, I was told it's fan won't turn on most of the time so I wonder how much more juice can be squeezed out of this chip.

  • Just a lap fan under the air would probably solve the problem of heat. Also just watch a video of how they keep burning out from design flaws with cooling. So your mod would probably save the air from the shit cooling design that destroys it.

    • Even with the throttling, it seems as if the base macbook air does exceptionally well in production workloads, and is looking to be an overall extremely solid value. If you're looking for a gaming laptop, yeah, go with a Windows based laptop. If you want something for production work, this is honestly a very compelling option. This is coming from someone who has always used windows based machines. The M1 air is gradually becoming quite high on my list of potential options, as I'm looking more into a laptop for photo/ video editing.

      Baldr GrimnirBaldr Grimnir7 日 前
  • Use this mod on your Air + a fan laptop stand thingy and you've got an actively cooled Mac Air with triple or more the thermal mass. Linus should do a video benchmarking that.

  • Could you passively cool a processor in any effective way by simply attaching it to a ridiculously massive block of metal? Not like a passive heatsink with fans or whatever, but like a 500mm cube of steel? How much better is a fan?

    iLEZtubeiLEZtube11 日 前
  • I think I found the solution: covers! My Lenovo Yoga runs hot occasionally, besides being a bit too spiky to hold (eeh modern design); so I forked out 40 bucks for a fake leather cover, which works beautifully for both problems. Users already go crazy for covers for Apple products, it would be a slam dunk. Then when you need performance, you put it on a $499 iCooler dock. Perfection!

  • The MacBooks from early 2006, they ran the fans at base rates of 1000 RPM... The systems would run at about 60 C and would be uncomfortably hot when being used as portable workstations. This is why with MacBooks from late 2006 and later, the fans were spun at a default of 2000 RPM. How does the modded MacBook Air M1 compare to the 2019 MacBook Air in terms of ambient temperature when running CPU-intensive workloads?

  • I just finished running Cinebench after the mod and my 10 minute score went from 7067 to 7687. The bottom panel got a bit toasty but it's hardly a burn hazard. I can understand Apple's reluctance to making them this way from the factory, because they didn't want people complaining that their notebooks run too hot, not realizing that the panel is acting like a heat sink.

Presently I am using no graphics card but after a couple of months I will hve to edit do 1080p video editing, 3D designs and some photo editing in two monitor setup and I also want to do casual gaming on my pc just for time pass and entertainment and I do not want to upgrade my psu. So which graphics card I should buy( the card must have atleast 2 hdmi ports.)

  • Okay. Never knew there was a standard / specification regarding surface temperature of electronic devices, but if that's the case, why the hell laptops from like 2009/2010 could reach temperatures so high they were actually really discomfortable and low-key kind of hurt to touch?
