Hi there I've had a base model (1.1GHz m3) 2016 MacBook for a week, and began to regret my decision not going for the higher spec build to order model. So I requested a return and ordered the top model (1.3GHz m7). I now have them both side by side before the slower one needs to go back, so I can decide which to keep. I've installed the Intel Power Gadget on both, and now then new one is set up and settled down, I have it running on both, and the numbers in it make no sense! Both are running at 1.2GHz by default when not under load. The 1.3 is underclocking itself and the 1.1 over. The 1.3 is drawing around 0.3W of power when idle, as is the 1.1. But the temperature on board the 1.1 is 27C, the 1.3 is 35C. Does anyone know enough about the efficiency and throttling of the Core m chips to work out how drawing the same power at the same clock speed, the chip being under clocked is running hotter?! Is there anything anyone would like me to try while I have both?
