Re: Garden Club - July 2019

crossreferencing it sounds like you have an i7-4870HQ processor.  That generation family has a maximum temperature rating of 100C.

 

You may have hot spots but I would think a sustained high CPU utilization would be needed to trigger a temperature-related throttling.

 

One can usually disable the EIST (or SpeedStep on older machines) settings on a Windows machine in the system BIOS.  Unsure about how it could be done on a Mac.

Yeah AMD and Intel made it so that clock speeds were dynamic many years ago. If your computer is sitting idle, it would be normal for the CPU to run at a much slower speed to conserve energy. As soon as demand is placed on it, it will increase as needed up to the maximum clock speed.

So if that’s the case, what distinguishes dynamic speed vs thermal throttle?


the "dynamic speed" is a function of processor utilization, if utilization is low both the frequency and voltage can be independently adjusted downward to conserve power while still allowing the processor to provide performance adequate to meet the demand.

 

A thermal throttle forces a drop in performance in response to a heat sensor registering a temperature that exceeded a threshold, and that's usually tied to high processor utilization and/or a failure of a cooling fan.

Ok, that makes more sense. So it looks like my processor is running properly, but unfortunately there are still issues with the GPU freaking out if the temps get too hot. That’s the only reason I bought a new Mac. I will probably try to keep my 2014 as an extra so I don’t have to sell it, and may still end up fixing it too. We will see.

Good morning boys, girls, and zombies!  Happy Sunday!

 

I'm up too early... thunderstorm rolling by outside... hopefully will cool things off a bit.

 

No credit news to report...things are quiet in my little corner of the garden.

'morning all.  I'll be using toothpicks to keep my eyes open until the caffeine kicks in.

 

I have Remi's coffee ready, as usual with real half-n-half.

Have a good day everybody.
