Apple has confirmed that 16-inch MacBook Pro models equipped with an M1 Max chip will feature a “High Power Mode” that is expected to temporarily increase performance.

Rumors of a “High Power Mode” first surfaced in late September, when code strings within the macOS Monterey revealed the existence of a special operating mode that could make a Mac run faster at the expense of decreased battery life and increased fan noise.

Although just a rumor up until Thursday, Apple has now confirmed the existence of the feature to MacRumors. According to the site, High Power Mode will only be available on 16-inch MacBook Pro models with an M1 Max chip. In other words, 14-inch MacBook Pros and all MacBook Pro variants with M1 Pro chips won’t get it.

Code strings discovered in October by Steve Moser suggested that Apple will warn users when they enable the setting, advising them that their Mac “will optimize performance to better support resource-intensive tasks. This may result in louder fan noise.”

The feature appears to be the opposite of Low Power Mode, which is being introduced in macOS Monterey. Similar to how the mode works on iPhone, Low Power Mode on macOS cuts down on battery-intensive tasks in an effort to squeeze a bit more life out of a charge.

新MacBook Pro詳細ベンチマークテストでわかったメディアエンジンの効果は絶大

© アスキー 提供 M1 Proを搭載した新MacBook Pro  速報としてお届けした「M1 ProとM1 MAX比較「新MacBook Pro」緊急ベンチマークテスト結果公開」では、新しいMacBook Proのベンチマークテスト専用アプリによるテスト結果を、2020年末に登場したM1チップ搭載の13インチMacBook Proと比較した。その結果は、M1 ProおよびM1 Maxが、CPU性能、GPU性能とも、昨年のM1から大きく向上していることを示すには十分だっただろう。 © アスキー 提供  今回は、インテルCPUを搭載した旧モデルのMacBook Proも含めたベンチマーク専用アプリによるテスト結果に加え、新しいMacBook Proのエネルギーモードによるパフォーマンスの変化、ベンチマーク専用アプリではない実際のアプリによるパフォーマンスの違いなども含めて総合的な性能を評価していく。 旧インテルCPU搭載MacBook Proは楽々上回る  これまでのMacBook Proのユーザーとしていちばん気になるのは、インテルからApple Siliconにスイッチして、実際にどれだけ速くなっているか、ということだろう。2020年末に登場したM1搭載の13インチMacBook Proは、名ばかりとは言わないまでも、ディスプレイのサイズ、ポートの数なども含めて、MacBook Proの中ではどちらかというとエントリーモデル的な製品だった。それに対して今回登場した新しいモデルは、正真正銘のプロ用と言えるだけに、2020年のM1搭載モデル以上にパフォーマンス向上への期待が高まる。  そこで、インテル製CPU搭載モデルとして最後に登場した2019年の16インチモデルも含めて、まずはCPU性能を比較してみよう。CPUは2.3GHzの8コアCore i9を搭載するモデルだ。当時のモデルのベンチマークデータとして採取してあったGeekbenchの結果を、最新のデータと比較する。  まずはCPU性能をシングルコア、マルチコアの両方で比較しよう。 ...
