Apple's new 16-inch MacBook Pro will have a 'high power' mode

Apple's latest MacBook Pro will feature a special setting known as "high power mode" for the most powerful model, the 16-inch Pro with M1 Max processor.
Steve Moser, a MacRumors contributor, found references to "high power" in macOS Monterey code a few days back. He also included a description saying: "Your Mac will optimize its performance to better support resource intensive tasks." This could lead to louder fan noise.

MacRumors confirmed with Apple that this mode will only be available on the 16-inch MacBook Pro's most powerful configurations. This setting is likely to be helpful for people who do a lot of computing-intensive tasks, such as rendering large files or playing a video game.

MacRumors claims that the M1 Max chip can be used to configure the 14-inch MacBook Pro, but it will not be available for the 16-inch MacBook Pro.

Apple's new MacBook Pro was launched earlier this week. It comes in a variety of configurations. The most important elements are the display size (14.2 inches or 16.2 inches) as well as the processor (M1 Pro/M1 Max). Apple claims that the maxed out M1 Max has up to four times more CPU cores than last year's M1 chip, which was already quite impressive.
