Punctual failure? MacBook Pro 2021 exports video slower than M1

macbook pro m1 tests

At La Manzana Bite we eagerly awaited the arrival of the MacBook Pro M1 Pro and M1 Max. Yesterday we obtained the 14-inch mannequin and we have been amazed to see how export video slower than earlier technologywith M1. And sure, it’s in all probability a selected failure that’s resolved with an replace or a change of kit, but it surely has been curious to say the least.

Big shock in our check exporting video

“I can’t clarify”. This is how our colleague Fernando del Moral reacted when he noticed how his 2020 MacBook Pro with M1 processor and 16 GB of RAM was able to exporting video significantly sooner than the 2021 mannequin with M1 Pro chip and 16 GB. All this occurred inside the framework of the primary impressions about this workforce that we uploaded yesterday to our YouTube channel.

In the video, which is the one which seems above, you’ll be able to see Fernando’s impressions of this laptop, shocking for good in lots of facets equivalent to the standard of the display or the advance of the digicam. Nevertheless, from minute 7:53 You can see how within the exams we’ve got carried out, the M1 Pro doesn’t carry out as anticipated and is even under the M1.

The check consisted of attempting to export a Final Cut Pro video with varied clips, results, and transitions. In each groups an identical settings have been established in each means, so the check put them to struggle on equal phrases. But, as we’ve got already stated and you’ll have been in a position to confirm, it was a jug of chilly water to see that after 6 minutes, the M1 of 2020 was already 82% of export, whereas the M1 Pro of 2021 was barely going for the 18 %.

It should be stated that this it was not a single check, since varied exams have been carried out on this part and in all of them there was too abysmal distinction between one and the opposite. And we insist, all the time on equal phrases and with the expectation that, predictably, the M1 Pro will outperform its predecessor.

Faulty drive or software program downside

As we anticipated in a earlier level, this should clearly be a failure. Numerous analysts have already printed their efficiency exams and in all of them the M1 Pro will get massive information and clearly outperforms the M1. What an eye fixed, the earlier processor remains to be a superb chip, however it’s past all predictability that surpasses even its improved variations.

Therefore, at this level what we suggest is that this can be on account of the truth that the MacBook Pro unit obtained is flawed, which in fact could be lined by guarantee and I’d not provide any trouble in repairing it, exchanging the unit, and even getting a refund contemplating it’s inside 14 days of buy. Nor can it’s dominated out that it’s a software program failure that could possibly be solved in upcoming macOS updates.

Therefore, we advocate that you simply take note of our YouTube channel if you wish to observe up on the decision of this downside. In the approaching days and weeks we’ll perform new exams that will likely be included within the overview and by which we absolutely already know what has occurred with this M1 Pro whereas ready to obtain the 16-inch mannequin with M1 Max chip.
