Tiger Lake-H has been preannounced, just not with a concrete date yet (but apparently with the info that it'll go up to eight cores).Tiger lake is meant for the ultra thin and light models. Intel doesn't have the Tiger Lake chips that Apple usually use for the high-end MBPs, like the 16-inch MBP.
Nobody gives a crap about windows on mac. If you want a windows machine, buy one. They’re like a hundred bucks.
And rosetta on a14m will still be faster than running native on most intel macs. And eventually anything that matters will be ported.
Sorely tempted to get the last Intel Mac as I’m not ready to give up dual booting to windows just yet... 🤔
Interesting! This might be like the 2015 15” macbook pro - the “last good macbook pro” until enough third-party software gets updated for ARM, and they iron out the bugs in the new hardware.
No one except for Apple themselves. During WWDC they stated that more Intel equipped Macs are still coming.No one expects Apple to release new Intel Macs before the end of this year.
Apple is also technically an OEM. There is no reason why they cannot work together on this and bring ARM Windows to run on AS Macs. This isn't 1990 anymore. Apple and Microsoft have been working closely together on various projects and MS themselves are quite keen to move onto as many platforms as possible and not rely solely on the x86 platform.Yes windows ARM does exist, but there is no way to buy it, there is no retail copies to buy. You can only get Windows ARM edition when buying a computer from an OEM such a microsoft surface, dell, hp, etc. So therefore you could never legally runs windows ARM on a mac nor could you get a genuine bootable ISO image from anywhere official.
Apple have a pretty good idea how many people are running Bootcamp. They will either give you a solution, or somebody has already drawn across the word "Bootcamp" on the white board with a red marker years ago.I’m going to be applying the VRM mod when I get a chance as many people say this fixes throttling issues.
For those who aren’t aware, these chips, which mostly sit at the top-centre of the logic board above the CPU and GPU, are passively cooled only and aren’t connected to a heat sync or heat pipe to active cooling. Many people suspect they overheat as a result.
It’s hard to know whether this is just cost-cutting/laziness or a deliberate decision to cripple performance; or of course, both!
Not at all. Windows is an occasional workload, and the Mac has far better overall economics. Having a single machine that does both has been a huge cost saver, and increase employee sat significantly.That’s a dumb way to spend money. If you need tens of thousands of people to run windows software, the mac is not the best hardware for doing that, and it‘s certainly not the most cost-effective.
Arm windows is mostly experimental without arm applications. And the market for those would be so small that many of the important vendors will spend the resources to port to a completely different architecture.No one except for Apple themselves.

There is no reasonable way to consider playing games to be anything close to "real work", so I don't think games being ported or not counts.the lack of virtualization capability for intel based os's like windows and some flavors of linux is a deal breaker for me. I really hope this is a a hint we'll get one more refresh. I plan to upgrade to it, to postpone the time when I have to either switch to, or buy a separate, windows machine. Ironically it was exactly the move away from ppc and to intel that allowed macs to penetrate the corporate market. This move will reverse that trend...there's a ton of niche windows software that will never be ported to macOS.
for recreation, this is essentially the end of major titles on macs...they already don't port to macOS natively because of a small user base, and definitely won't bother porting to a completely different architecture. Losing both boot camp and virtualization, renders the bulk of most game libraries useless.
apples misreading the impact, because most corporate it departments disable telemetry, so they don't get use data. Unless they have some magic up their sleeve like a thunderbolt 4 intel compute module (emulation won't cut it for these kinds of workloads), the end of using a Mac is in sight.
I noticed the update but didn’t pay attention to release notes.
AMD also just updated its graphics (finally) for the first time since the 16” was released, so that might indicate an imminent update also.
MacBooks are available in a bunch of companies, among dell and hp, etc. Usually only a couple of configs are offered and maintained.I haven't ever heard of any significantly large corporate environment running Windows on Apple hardware. Can you give any examples?
Macs have been available as an option at several of the large companies I have been at, but always running macOS. For Windows, Dell or HP has typically been the only supported configurations.MacBooks are available in a bunch of companies, among dell and hp, etc. Usually only a couple of configs are offered and maintained.
Particularly interesing is, that most of the Microsoft employees (mostly .NET specialists) I follow on Twitter use Macbooks (and iPhones, if anybody cares).
There are plenty of examples in many companies. Not only related to using Windows but also Linux.
Pretty much, yeah. But I have no evidence at hand. And .NET on macOS is not that mature, really. Mono is a thing but it sucks and .NET Core is not fit for desktop development on other OSes than Windows. But the people I follow all use Visual Studio (there is basically no great alternative) and VS for Mac is really bad.Macs have been available as an option at several of the large companies I have been at, but always running macOS.

All the companies in that image deliver native Mac software, and .NET is available on macOS. Are you sure any of them actually support running Windows exclusively on Apple hardware?
I'm talking about people that specifically do not develop for macOS here.MS has a rather large Apple team since they have quite a lot of Mac OS products. I am not sure what people think they should be using instead of Macs? 🤷♀️
