    Oh god... Here we have a laptop that can't handle a quad-core i7 and they cram an 8 core CPU into it

    Doesn't take an engineer to know that this laptop is NOT going to run well under loads. No way it can maintain base clocks with an all core load. And the best part is that they offer the "weaker" 8 core i9 as well as the unlocked and OC ready i9

    Specs more important than if it will work as intended. Charge more get less. Expect new rounds of same awful tragedy... https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/07/20/intel_core_i9_performance_in_dell_apple_laptops/

    And this will apply both Apple and Windows Jokebook's.

    Wow no redesign... still same crappy keyboard, same cooling that was overheating a 6-core...

    And Yes I've actually used one. I still prefer my 2013 model.




    Well....the 8-core i9 "desktop" CPU in my Area-51m runs as it would in a desktop. ;)

    Just recently started doing rendering on it and wow it runs very well.

    Well the A51 isn’t much of a laptop as it is a desktop with a screen and keyboard built into the case

    I take it to school and work in my backpack so depends on the person I guess. ;)

    Also have carried my M18xR2 (bigger than Area-51m but almost matches my macbook pro in battery life) to work and school.

    Can't imagine carrying my old 50+lb watercooled desktop around anywhere like this.

    Area-51m lasts 2 hrs with my usage so I'd say that's the limiting factor for me.

    My Macbook gets me 4 hours with my usage. M18xR2 gets 3 1/2 hours.
    -------------------
    EDIT: On a side note here's a benchmark of the new macbook:

    https://www.macrumors.com/2019/05/23/new-8-core-macbook-pro-benchmarks/

    ~14.5% increase single thread compared to the 2018 mbp I tested
    ~40.8% increase single thread compared to my 2013 mbp

    ~38.3% increase in multi-core compared to the 2018 mbp I tested
    ~200% increase in multi-core compared to my 2013 mbp lol

    Sounds about right

    Does the new MBP get a new cooling system?

    Maybe the cooling from the Vega GPU 2018 model.

    But, eh, considering $5000 DTR are struggling, don't get your hopes up.

    Numbers are a little off. I just tested GB4 on my MP Pro 2018 i9. Multicore is spot on, but single core was 5598. Either way, my recently upgraded P870DM-G smashes it in tank like fashion with daily driver 8086k @ 4.5ghz on all cores.

    I'm sure my shop will get some 2019 i9's in and I'll probably swap out my work 2018 because any improvements over this trash keyboard are welcomed. I've used the 2016/2017 and now 2018 and the keyboard is just garbage. I use an external 99% of the time.

    The fact Apple has enacted a 4 year extended warranty program on the keyboard INCLUDING the newly introduced 2019 "with keyboard improvements" is telling. This will come back to bite Apple on the keister, as in their rush to finesse everything as small as possible, the keyboard and battery come together as one assembly so whenever your MacBook keyboard fails, your new keyboard will include a new battery.
