Although Apple has been ridiculed by the group for using the “dream single heat pipe” to suppress the Intel Core i9 processor on the iMac all-in-one product line,However, the excellent energy efficiency ratio of the self-developed Apple Silicon has allowed the Cupertino technology giant to “stand and earn back its face.”Earlier, @L0vetodream shared a set of dismantling pictures of a 2021 16.2-inch M1 Max MacBook Pro on Twitter, and the results aroused amazement among netizens.
Through this group of pictures, we saw the body of the M1 Max custom chipset for the first time. And simple one heat pipe + doublefanThe solution has indeed reachedAppleThe desired balance of heat dissipation efficiency + the overall goal of silent operation.
According to Apple’s statement at the press conference, the improved heat dissipation system can increase the ventilation by more than 50% at lower speeds. In addition, thanks to the advanced energy efficiency of the M1 Pro / M1 Max custom SoC, users will hardly be troubled by noise.
Compared with mainstream x86 laptops on the market, the 2021 16.2 inch M1 MaxMacBookPro’s component integration and heat sink design really give us a huge sense of difference.
In the bulky high-end gaming notebooks, PC OEM manufacturers are often equipped with a combination of multiple heat pipes + large radiators (or even using a soaking plate), and the fan speed takes off every minute.
But looking at the 2021 MacBook Pro, we found that the actual area of the motherboard PCB is quite small. The circles on both sides are reserved for the cooling fan, and the rest of the fuselage is almost occupied by the battery.
As for the core M1 Pro / M1 Pro custom chips, they were wrapped by two / four unified memory (UMA). In addition, @L0vetodream took out a 1 yuan (RMB) coin to compare the size.
It is reported that the unified memory (UMA) architecture allows SoC and memory to work together and perform related operations faster. And official parameters show that the maximum memory bandwidth of the M1 Max chip is 400 GB/s.
Finally, judging from the initial out-of-the-box evaluations of many technology up owners, the performance optimization of the 2021 MacBook Pro in a specific workflow is indeed in place. Even ignoring the power/temperature wall, many high-end x86 PCs are difficult to fight against.
