Why would they not use the same speakers in all of the MBPs? Apple just makes some of the weirdest decisions.

The $1,799 (28W) model has had a double fan cooling system since 2016, don't specifically know why as the 2013-15 model (also 28W) seemed to get on fine with one, but maybe because the body got smaller they had to extract heat more aggressively to maintain temps.

That was the case with prior years 2 port vs 4 port as well so that's not surprising.
Well, so could you tell me which one was the quietest ? ... i am planning tout buy a new mbp (i've ordered the 8thgen first but the order has been canceled so i can still make a different choice). I would like to buy the quietest for regular tasks...

Get the model that you need.

You’ll rarely hear the fans go off on the MacBook Pro 13 inch models.

I’ve got a 2016 13 inch pro and I’ve never heard the fans go off on the machine.

Space and tech evolves. Sonic dynamics/limitations of the Air, 13" & 16" MBP are all completely different therefore no one speaker can serve all...

Q-6
Sorry, not buying it. All of the 13inch models should have the same speakers.

The dual fan 10gen is more quiet under all normal situations, but both are fairly quiet anyway.

I'd say it's more than a claim if he shows the back off the laptop and you can actually see it. My question would be does the 10th gen CPU run hotter or is the extra fan so it can run longer on turbo boost?

It sounds like you want the MacBook Air. If you're just doing general computing the battery will last longer and it will be quieter.

This is a in-depth video on every difference, including fan noise and heat.

TLDR; The fans on the 10gen does a better job and stay more quiet in almost all most scenarios.

Interestingly, 8th gen stays cooler most often (so perhaps the single fan does a better job?) and is quieter in the cinebench test. Seems the watt draw of the 10th gen requires the dual fan at the higher frequencies. It maybe that when they're both running flat out, the dual fan probably is noisier given there is 2 of them, but takes longer to require both to be full rpm.

My 2018 I can hear them daily, video calls seem a prime culprit!
I hear mine too - like a drone on my desk! I think some of the video conferencing software is designed for certain processors. My 2018 6-CORE i7 MBP spins up it's fan on every call after about 5-10 minutes, but the 2020 i3 macbook air takes more like 30 minutes

So did they say they ran hotter than 2018/19 models??
Sorry just to be clear - in the video above of max tech - he is comparing the 2020 MBP with 8th gen and 10th gen processors. The 10th Gen seems to run hotter, but then has dual fans to cope. It appears that the 10th gen is quieter most of the time - except when under heavy load then it is louder.
Have a looksie, maybe you get something else out of it!
Cheers :cool:
