Any Reason Not to Be Concerned About Heat Failure With new GPU?

    For me, the dGPU isn't a must have. It's nice and I'd benefit slightly from having it. But, if this new AMD gpu is going to produce a lot of heat and lead to failure I'd just rather load up a 13" to top spec and go with that.

    Does anyone with technical knowledge of these new dGPU's know whether the heat issues from the past will persist?

    With a TDP of only 35W and Apple flaunting their upgraded cooling system, I wouldn't say there is anything to worry about.

    Just the fact that this new MacBook Pro is smaller and thinner does not bode well for improved thermals. But it will take a few years before we find out for sure if the new GPUs will be prone to failures like previous generations.
