Apple MacBook Air 2020: Core i3 daha iyi bir seçim mi?

Slower and quieter. Apple, MacBook Air'in giriş seviyesi SKU'sunu çift çekirdekli bir işlemciyle donatıyor, ancak performans 2020'de hala yeterli mi? Veya dört çekirdekli CPU ile bir yapılandırma mı almalısınız? Ve: Sıcaklık ve fan gürültüsü üzerindeki etkiler nelerdir?
Andreas Osthoff, 👁 Andreas Osthoff,

Dört çekirdekli MacBook Air hakkındaki son incelememizden sonra, daha yavaş Core i3 işlemcisi ile giriş seviyesi SKU'ya daha yakından bakıyoruz. Sadece iki CPU çekirdeği içeriyor ve bu nedenle bize önceki MacBook Air'in (MY 2019 ve daha eski) birçoğunu hatırlatıyor. Özellikle emisyonlarla ilgileniyoruz, çünkü dört çekirdekli modeli gözden geçirirken fan gürültüsü bir sorun haline geldi. Altın test birimimiz 1199 Euro (~ 1298 $) için giriş seviyesi spesifikasyonudur. Core i3 işlemciye ek olarak, müşteriler 8 GB RAM ve 256 GB SSD depolama alanına sahip olur. Ayrıca bir kez daha geleneksel bir makas mekanizması kullanan güncellenmiş klavyeyi (Magic Keyboard) alırsınız. Son inceleme birimimize kıyasla şasi, bağlantı veya giriş aygıtları arasında fark yoktur, bu nedenle bu konular hakkında daha fazla bilgi için lütfen MacBook Air 2020 Core i5 ile ilgili kapsamlı incelememize bakın. Giriş seviyesi işlemcinin performansına ve bu makaledeki emisyonlara odaklanacağız.

Subpixel layout

Ekran, önceki inceleme birimine çok benzer. Panel kimliği bir kez daha APPA042 ve çözünürlük 2560 x 1600 piksel. Sübjektif olarak, resim izlenimi çok iyidir ve ölçüm sonuçları son test modelimizle neredeyse aynıdır (sadece küçük sapmalar). Sapmalar sadece ölçüm cihazları ile belirlenir, çıplak gözle değil. Ölçüm sonuçlarımız ~ 400 nit'de ve kontrast oranı 1200: 1'den fazla, ancak bazı Windows rakipleri çok daha iyi sonuçları yönetiyor. PWM titremesini% 75 veya daha düşük bir parlaklıkta belirleyebiliriz, ancak frekans son derece yüksektir. 119 kHz. Daha pahalı MacBook Pro modellerine benzer şekilde, küçük MacBook Air, Parlaklık sensörünün yanı sıra True Tone'u (ortam ışığına göre renk sıcaklığının otomatik olarak ayarlanması) destekler.

Profesyonel CalMAN yazılımı ve X-Rite i1 Pro 2 spektrofotometre ile yaptığımız analiz, kutunun dışında çok hassas bir kalibrasyon olduğunu ortaya koyuyor. Renk gölgesi yoktur ve sapmalar açıkça 3'ün önemli işaretinin altındadır. Sonuçları sadece kendi kalibrasyonumuzla biraz iyileştirmeyi başardık, bu nedenle kullanıcı tarafından ek bir kalibrasyon gerekli değildir. Küçük sRGB gamı tamamen kapsanır, bu nedenle resim düzenleme sorunu yoktur. Bu arada, daha geniş P3 renk gamını hedefleyen daha pahalı MacBook Pro 13 kardeşlerine kıyasla bu bir fark.

Testlerimiz sırasında, Windows'u kullandığınızda maksimum parlaklığın çok daha yüksek olduğunu fark ettik. Test birimimiz% 30'dan fazla daha parlaktı, bu oldukça fazla. Bununla birlikte, siyah değer de daha yüksektir, bu nedenle elde edilen kontrast oranı 1200: 1'de benzerdir. Bu varyasyonun olası nedenleri hakkında zaten özel bir makale yayınladık. Windows renk doğruluğu açısından biraz daha kötü performans gösterir ve bazı renkler 3'ün önemli değerini kaçırır (kalibrasyondan sonra bile).

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
28.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16 ms rise
↘ 12.4 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 66 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
38.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 20.4 ms rise
↘ 18 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 41 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (38.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 119000 Hz ≤ 75 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 119000 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 75 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 119000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17531 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performans - Core i3 MacBook Air'de yeterli mi?

MacOS kıyaslamalarına ek olarak, her zamanki test paketimizi çalıştırmak ve Windows cihazlarıyla belirli bir karşılaştırılabilirliği sağlamak için Windows 10'u BootCamp aracılığıyla yükledik. Ancak, lütfen BootCamp sürücülerinin Apple tarafından mükemmel şekilde optimize edilmediğini unutmayın. Windows'u kullanmak sorun değil, ancak karşılaştırma sonuçları her zaman gerçek performansı göstermiyor. Windows'u kullandığınızda güç tüketimi de belirgin şekilde daha yüksektir.

İşlemci - Ice Lake Core i3 ile MacBook Air

MacBook Air 2020'nin temel modeli de modern bir Buz Gölü işlemcisi alıyor, ancak Core i3-1000NG4, Core i5 ve Core i7 ile karşılaştırıldığında sadece iki çekirdek (4 iplik) sunuyor, bu yüzden 2018'den eski MacBook Air'e daha yakın ve 2019 ham CPU performansı açısından. Yeni Core i3, öncekilerdeki eski Core i5-8210Y'den biraz daha hızlı, ancak avantaj çok büyük değil.Perfor çok hızlı düşüyor: 18 Watt'a (2x 3,2 GHz) kadar maksimum güç tüketimi görüyoruz ancak bu değer birkaç saniye içinde yalnızca 10-11 Watt'a (2x 2,3-2,4 GHz) düşer. Cinebench Multi loop'umuz da benzer bir güç kullanımı ile sonuçlanır. Dört çekirdekli i5 ile MacBook Air incelememiz sırasında daha büyük dalgalanmalar fark ettik. İkincisinin tüm çekirdekleri kullandığınızda% 35 civarında bir avantajı vardır, ancak günlük görevlerde hala önemli olan tek çekirdekli performans aslında i3 ve i5 arasında aynıdır. Pil gücünde performans daha da azalmaz. Tüm Windows rakipleri 15W CPU'ları ile çok daha fazla CPU performansı sunuyor.

Sistem Performansı - Temel görevler için yeterince hızlı MacBook Air

Karşılaştırma sonuçları bir şeydir, ancak özellikle ilk sıradan kullanıcılar için tasarlanmış MacBook Air gibi bir cihaz kullandığınızda öznel performans izlenimi çok daha önemlidir. Açıkçası her kullanıcının kendi rutini vardır, ancak inceleme süremiz boyunca tipik uygulamaları kullandığımızda herhangi bir sınırlama fark etmedik. Bu, posta yazma, Skype veya Discord üzerinden sohbetler, web'de gezinme, YouTube videolarının oynatılması veya video akışı (Netflix, Amazon Prime Video veya Disney gibi) gibi şeyleri içerir. MacBook Air, bu senaryolarda hızlı SSD ve güçlü video kod çözücüden kesinlikle yararlanır. CPU performansı da bu tür işler için tamamen yeterlidir.Ancak, aynı anda çok fazla çoklu görev yapmamalı veya çok fazla tarayıcı sekmesi kullanmamalısınız, aksi takdirde bazı küçük kekemeleri fark edebilirsiniz. MacBook Air zaten güç kullanıcıları için pek uygun değil ve bu da dört çekirdekli işlemcilere sahip daha pahalı SKU'lar için de geçerli. MacBook Pro 13, örneğin daha zorlu uygulamalar için çok daha iyi bir cihazdır.

GPU Performance – Iris Plus Graphics G4

GPU-Z Intel Iris Plus Graphics
GPU-Z Intel Iris Plus Graphics

The Core i3 processor is equipped with a slower version of the Intel Iris Plus Graphics compared to the optional quad-core chips. The G4 iGPU only features 48 shader units; the faster G7 version 64. However, the graphics performance is further limited by the low TDP, because other G4 iGPUs in our database are between 30-70% faster depending on the benchmark. The MacBook Air 2020 with the G7 iGPU is about 50% faster, but the overall performance level is still low. You will not notice this difference in practice and the slower iGPU is sufficient. Playback of high-resolution videos, for example, is no problem at all, but the MacBook Air is usually too slow for gaming. Only very simple titles run smoothly at lowest settings, but the performance also drops after a while. The Fire Strike stress test is not passed at just 70%, so the gaming performance will suffer when you play for a couple of minutes. The graphics performance is not further reduced on battery power.

System Noise – Dual-Core MacBook Air is quieter

Compared to the quad-core model of the MacBook Air, it takes longer for the fan to reach its maximum speed. The fan is also noticeably quieter overall. Medium workloads (also gaming) will also result in the maximum fan noise, but this process will take a couple of minutes. Still, the passive cooling in combination with the additional chassis fan is anything but great. Other manufactures can handle such a processor with a completely passive cooling solution.

Temperature – Core i3 SKU stays cooler

Stress test
Stress test

The entry-level model of the MacBook Air also has an advantage in terms of surface temperatures, and the hotspot at the top of the keyboard in particular stays a couple of degrees cooler. You will notice up to 44 °C (111.2 °F) when you type on the keyboard, but there are no limitations. Up to 40 °C (104 °F) at the bottom is no problem, either. Less demanding tasks usually result in a lukewarm device, if at all.

Similar to pure CPU load, the power consumption of the SoC will level off at around 11 Watts during our stress test. However, both the CPU and the iGPU are stressed now, which results in lower clocks. The CPU only runs at 2x 1.5 GHz and the iGPU at 400 MHz. The performance is not limited immediately after the stress test.

Energy Management – Efficient Ice Lake SoC

Power Consumption

The Core i3 MacBook Air is a slightly more efficient in our idle measurements, but there is no difference in our load tests. This once again shows that the TDP setting or the cooling solution, respectively, is the limiting factor for the performance.

Battery Runtime – macOS with a distinct advantage

The battery runtime is a bit better compared to the MacBook Air with the quad-core i5 processor. Both our Wi-Fi test and the video test (macOS, both at 150 nits) run for about 11 hours. The runtime in the Wi-Fi test is reduced to 7:17 hours (macOS) when we use the maximum display brightness.

We also performed the Wi-Fi test with Windows, and as expected, the results are much shorter. At 150 nits, we record about 7.5 hours, and just little more than 4 hours at the maximum brightness.

Verdict – The Core i3 is the better choice for everyday tasks

In review: Apple MacBook Air 2020 Core i3. Test model courtesy of Cyberport.
In review: Apple MacBook Air 2020 Core i3. Test model courtesy of Cyberport.

With all the discussions about the performance of the new quad-core CPUs, you should not forget that the MacBook Air is still primarily a device for casual users with simple workloads. This includes basic things like writing mails, video playback, or web browsing. The MacBook Air is great for this stuff, also thanks to the fast SSD storage. Because of the limited TDP configuration, the entry-level MacBook Air is even on par with the supposedly faster quad-core i5 when it comes to the single-core performance, which is still important for everyday tasks. There are also noticeable advantages in terms of the emissions, and especially the fan is much quieter with a slower maximum speed. This means the i3 MacBook Air is quieter for longer periods of time, even when you stress it.

The MacBook Air with the dual-core i3 processor is the better device for basic workloads. The subjective performance impression is very good in these scenarios, the fan is quieter, and you can still enjoy the good display as well as the improved keyboard.

There are still drawbacks, because the overall level of performance is just very low. This would not be a huge problem, but why does Apple not manage to create a completely passively cooled device? A silent MacBook Air would be a great, but we have the suspicion that Apple limits the Air on purpose. This step might be reserved for future models with the heavily speculated ARM SoCs.

The price is another problem, because you can get Windows laptops with much more performance for 1200 Euros (~$1298). Still, thanks to the high-quality case, the good panel, and the good optimization for macOS, the MacBook Air is a very well-balanced package for your basic tasks. If you need more performance or if you already know that you will stress the components a lot, however, we believe you should skip the more expensive quad-core models of the Air and just get a MacBook Pro 13 (or something similarly powerful) instead.
