  1. Summary The latest macOS beta appears to be removing x86 emulation on install. The wording’s meaning and reasoning behind it is anybody’s guess. Quotes My thoughts If Apple actually does remove x86 emulation, it may force lazy developers to move forward with native code. But would also be a major kick in the teeth to Apple Silicon adopters who believed there would be compatability.

  2. No idea. Just a comparable bench I found. But either way, crammed into a laptop with no active cooling, sipping a mere few watts. This is going to be interesting
  3. No worries, for anyone who doesn't "hablar Macintosh" I have provided a comparable desktop performance comparison... I'm impressed to say the least
  4. Geekbench scores are up! Not only did the MacBook Air shred the 2019 MacBook Pro with the 9980HK, but it somehow also beat the ARM MacBook Pro with the cooling fan to "push it to the limit". Intriguing... Linus, looks like your models are arriving late. Want me to run some tests for you? https://browser.geekbench.com/v5/cpu/compare/4652718?baseline=4651916
