  • "MacBook Pro (Mid 2018) Throttling" ["Why does this test not replicate the throttling seen in other tests? Part of the issue is the test themselves. Premiere uses both the CPU and the GPU, while Geekbench only uses the CPU. If the GPU contributes significant heat, then that will cause the CPU to throttle more aggressively. It's possible the decrease in performance observed in Premiere is due to a combination of new AMD GPUs¬†with new Intel processors, or to the new AMD GPUs themselves."]  Primate Labs 6:08 AM
