    OcUK Alderlake review thread

    Just delighted there is competition and not just AMD vs Intel but Apple too. It's good for consumers but I think the right call might be to let the platform and tech mature, DD5, Windows 11 etc.

    *** The official 2021 Macbook Pro thread (it has an SD slot and everything!) ***

    define a desktop computer.... you should be asking: what are your needs? plenty of Mac users have used their Macintoshes in docked mode to a monitor for many years as their main device for computing!

    MacBook Pro 2021 Case Suggestions

    It was answered, the answer was: that it is too early for specific skins and cases that fit the new machines. Probably not so great ones will hit the market soon, more qualities ones a bit later.

    Intel is dead to apple. Long live ARM and Apple Silicone.

    This MBP has changed my life and I am enjoying computing again, the first time in such a long time that I have been generally excited about new technology. It's just a pleasure to use.

    A lot of confusion over unified memory here. Benchmarks show how comparable chips are but real world usage will expose what happens to unified memory under any load.

    People will regret 16 apple even shipped to all reviewers units with at least 32…

    It's still your VRAM requirement are shared with the system requirements. For example on my MBP my VRAM is constantly in use, so that's -4 to the 16 base already, down to 12GB for the system. Some argue the unified is so much faster its irrelevant but we will see what really happens under load....

    a few now appearing, looking forward to hearing about RAM usage which no one has mentioned yet.

    All this competioni should have drove down prices but due to the weird way of the supply chain and life at the moment its not happening. Realistically its cheaper for Apple to make ARM chips but we've not seen price cuts. However maybe all this competition will result in price cuts a few years...

    I don't think we need to know what people are doing with mirrors in their bedroom with their Mac's thank you. :cry: I think its a big week for the Mac this week, the end of the intel age really....

    LOL all that power for office and YouTube...I bet people order way more than they need. Benchmarks this week is what matters... the 16inch machine looks not as portable as some may think, its a thick boy for sure.

    I have a hunch 32GB will be better for rendering/editing etc with the GPU then 16.... its what apple went within in their small print for the Pro...and 64 for the max. But then of course they'd max out the ram for a benchmark
