    Hi Guys,

    Last week I bought a MacBook Pro 15 inch 2018 base model (2.2, 256gb, 555x). So far I'm happy with the computer. However, my main problem is the battery. After a maximum of 4 hours the battery dies, during normal use. Searching the web, with a few tabs open, have the screen on 70% brightness. Maybe a few video's on YouTube with Safari.

    Besides, I looked at the GPU History and it shows "AMD Radeon 560", but I have bought the AMD Radeon 555x. Can someone explain me why this is? See the image attached.

    Thank you for your help.

    No idea about battery. Could be the sites you are visiting, etc.

    To see the hardware the Mac sees Try "About Mac | System Report | Hardware | Graphics/Displays" and see what Video cards are listed.

    Thanks! In the System Report it says 555x, so that will be fine.

    Anyone also experienced the battery drain with the 2018 MacBook Pro running Mojave?
