  1. Here in Sweden, a used iPhone XR in excellent condition is 550 US-dollars, and a brand new iPhone SE 2 is 550 US-dollars. Which one should I purchase, which one would you purchase, and why?
  2. Isn't it kind of weird? Even though it has 4 threads more, it only makes for a ≈10% difference. I thought the difference would be bigger between a 6 core i7 and 8 core i9... Well that's what benchmarks are for I guess: to show the ACTUAL performance difference.
  3. Yes I want a portable machine since I travel a lot. Actually I usually travel with my Mac mini, I just toss it into a my backpack and connect it to a monitor/TV when I arrive at the office/school/whatever. And yes I need a Mac since I use a lot of macOS-exclusives like GarageBand, Logic Pro X etc..
  4. I currently own a Mac mini 2018, but I'm considering upgrading to a MacBook Pro 16" 2019. Is it worth the upgrade? My current specs: Mac mini 2018 3,2 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7 32 GB 2667 MHz DDR4 Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB What I would upgrade to: MacBook Pro 16" 2019 2.3GHz 8‑core 9th‑generation Intel Core i9 processor 32GB 2666MHz DDR4 memory AMD Radeon Pro 5500M with 8GB of GDDR6 memory Since Macs are already expensive, and especially here in Sweden due to our very high taxes, this specification of the MacBook Pro 16" 2019 would cost me exactly 41249 SEK, which converted is 4044 US-dollar. If I sold my Mac mini, I would probably make about $1800 from it, which means that I would have to pay about $2243 for the upgrade. I pretty much only use Adobe After Effects, which is really CPU-intensive (it pretty much never uses the GPU). When I run Cinebench R20 on my Mac mini, I get a score of 2937, and when searching around, I found that the MacBook Pro 16" 2019 2.3GHz 8‑core i9 gets a score of about 3300. Is it worth the upgrade?
  5. Good to hear and thank you for your explanation!
  6. Thank you, now I understand! Well, I guess the Sapphire Radeon RX Vega 56 Nitro+ 2xHDMI 2xDP 8GB just suffers from this "cricket"-type of coil whine then... I searched on YouTube, and it seems it's a pretty common "issue" for the Sapphire Nitro+ cards. Thank you once again!
  7. Is it possible that it's coil whine? I thought coil whine only occurred when the fans are spinning... As I mentioned previously, my noise occurs even though not a single fan on the GPU is spinning... And yes - I am referring to the "cricket" sound you're talking about.
  8. A couple of months ago, I bought a Sapphire Radeon RX Vega 56 Nitro+ 2xHDMI 2xDP 8GB to put in a Razer Core X for my Mac. It has been performing really well, however, when I put heavy load on the graphics card (like a graphics-intensive game for example) it makes this really weird electrical sound. The heavier the load, the louder the noise is. Here's a video of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=te2EL-qn_NA System specs: GPU: Sapphire Radeon RX Vega 56 Nitro+ 2xHDMI 2xDP 8GB eGPU: Razer Core X Connected to a Mac mini 2018 (3,2 GHz Intel Core i7, 32 GB 2667 MHz DDR4, 500 GB) via the Razer Core X's USB-C port (USB-C to USB-C). Connected to a monitor via the Sapphire's HDMI (HDMI to HDMI). I'm talking about the electrical noise that occurs between 00:02 - 00:05 in the video. It's definitely not a coil whine. Listen with headphones and you'll clearly hear an electrical sound between 00:02 - 00:05. Listen to the difference between 00:00 in the video and 00:03 and you'll know what I'm talking about.Also, the sound occurs even though there's no fan that starts to spin. It sounds like it comes from within the graphics card or alternatively, the PSU on the Razer Core X... Is this a problem, or is it normal? Should I return the graphics card? Weird Electrical Noise.mp4
