News M3 MacBook Air can power two displays but there’s a huge catch — what you need to know

Mar 19, 2024
I'm confused as to why this would come as a shock to anyone given the type of test was run. You put a MacBook Air running two external displays through a 3D graphics test and you expected it to not throttle?

Remind me again when anyone ever recommended a MacBook Air to do heavy duty 3D graphics work? The MacBook Pro would always be the recommendation if you were going to do this type of work on a portable Mac.

How about we go back and run this same test for someone using Safari, Keynote, Pages, Outlook, Word, etc? The MacBook Air is a general computing / productivity computing platform, not a 3D graphics or 3D gaming platform.
