macbook cpu still holds up in 2020 macosx high sierra


Average

1 month ago.

MacBook Pro/White mid 2010 CPU. The CPU is still okay for browsing the web on Windows 8.1/macOS Big Sur, however, opening up multiple tabs is going to really slow this CPU down, making it an unpleasant experience. Performance is what I'd expect from a 25W non-hyperthreaded dual core cpu from 2008. Benchmarks: Terraria (1280 x 800) ~ 40 FPS (Any sort of army that appears will make fps drop to ~5) Minecraft (1280 x 800, 1.17.x, Optifine) ~ 50 FPS
