Interesting...so maybe it’s not an apple issue but a C1 issue. I’m not giving up on it, I think it will get better just need to manage the client expectations for the moment.

been debating about a new macbook

I built up a PC for C1 (capture in studio and developing etc.) and its insane but its a PC and I hate the file management (file explorer)

but having used C1 since its launch I can say sadly it might be a C1 thing and one of the things about the company being rather small are strange things like this happening also they seem to take on this its not us
I can see why they do not offer support for the med format fuji but that ties back to them making software for their cameras and offering it out as a 2nd thing it feels sometimes ?

very curious how this all turns out

Appreciate the comments here so far. Does anyone have anything further to add?

I'm currently holding off on purchasing the 15" 2018 MacBook Pro until there is some more positive feedback for it with Capture One 11.

Has anyone been able to do some speed/temp comparisons between the 15" models based on high throughput usage in Capture One? Perhaps someone has also tried the new 15" base model, 2.2Ghz i7 with Radeon 555x?

Based on the information out there, it does sound possible that both the lower spec CPU and GPU could provide better performance in Capture One due to generating less heat? Any more opinions on that?

Hoping to hear from more digital techs or photographers who have used the 2018 MacBook Pro for fast tethered shooting (50-100MP files) combined with 1-2 external 4k monitors (via DisplayPort) and a USB-C hub running 2-3 bus powered drives.

How is performance in crop/rotate mode compared to older MBP? How responsive are the ruler for exposure? For me it‘s very important. I‘m just handling 24 MPx files.

Great questions. I'm in the market too for a new MPB and am debating the high end 13" (perhaps with an eGPU when docked) vs 15". One thing of note is a PhaseOne post describing how C1 takes advantage of OpenCL:

Open CL will dedicate memory to several actions in Capture One.
The following outlines the softwares demand;
• Preview Update with different settings, styles etc: RAM
• Sorting/Rating: CPU cores and SSD speed
• Fit Image to Screen: GPU cores
• Process time: GPU processing units and CPU's and RAM


Of note is that the GPU seems not to play a part in Preview Update or Sorting/Rating. Looking at the Geekbench CPU scores, the i9 doesn't seem to bring much additional to the table; yeah, it's a tad faster but not that much. So the question of whether the lower end "15" base model, 2.2Ghz i7 with Radeon 555x" suffers same issues is a good one.

Personally, I'm considering a 13" loaded with the eGPU (when docked). That's roughly the same price as a 15" i7 (1TB SSD in both cases). But right now I'm on the sidelines waiting for some of these things to sort out.

I think this is less the fault of CaptureOne and more and more the fault of the overall backwards design for the Apple hardware.
They've been using the same general built for the last 6 years - and they were fine for most of the time. But now we're reaching "critical mass" so to speak and Macs are not the only ones feeling the heat. Throttling occurs on just about every thin and light laptop of the current generation, at least on those running a powerful CPU and GPU combo.
On the PC side DELL with their XPS also has some heavy throttling after a few minutes of intense editing in CaptureOne, rising to 90°C and even beyond when playing with the exposure slider for a bit.

It makes however no sense whatsoever to get the i9 when you use the CPU and GPU at the same time - the temperatures simply will not allow for anything faster than what the i7 would be capable of. And for photographers (=people using C1) that applies 100%.

To be honest, I can't imagine this being just a Mac issue.I am running a Windows laptop with i7-3630QM and 16GB memory, it also uses in between 23-28% CPU on average when exporting images.

I did test today my imac i7 4ghz to import 14k images and creating previews.
Cpu usage was constantly about 45% and gpu processor as well
