buy iMacs and MacBooks (Pro, Air) from June 2017: Model recommendations and traders
The new MacBooks are new with Intel Core M processors equipped, both in terms of performance, and power consumption and price between Intel Atom and Intel Core i processors are located. Accordingly, the new MacBooks are not as efficient as their air siblings. For that consume the Core M processors up to 70 percent less power, than the current Core-i processors. In the entry-level model of the MacBook is a Intel Core M-5Y70 fitted with 1.1 to 2.4 GHz. In the middle configuration is (probably) a higher clocked Intel Core M-5Y70 with 1.2 to 2.6 GHz is used. The top configuration (unconfirmed) with a Intel Core M-5Y71 operated with 1.3 to 2.9 GHz.
As already mentioned, the Core M processors are not as powerful as those from the Core i family. Even with the integrated graphics Core i processors have the edge. The Intel HD 6000 in the MacBook Air, for example, clocked at 300-950 MHz. The Intel HD 5300 in the MacBook with 100-850 or 300-900 MHz - depending on the processor. So if you have a MacBook Air brings to its performance limits, is likely to have less fun with the MacBook. One should not forget that the MacBook comes without active cooling and the maximum temperature of the installed Core M processors at just 95 ° C instead of 105 ° Celsius. If the processor is too hot, he throttles themselves and thus the system. It remains to be seen how well Apple can cool the processor in the MacBook under full load passively and how well does the system as a whole from this site. Purely from the numbers here at least the first (new) generation of MacBook for MacBook Air should not be dangerous.
