Hello, My benchmark score is very low. The system is 5 years old, but has been treated right and works very well and relatively fast for a 5 year old system. I had some repairs done recently and they didn't mention any issues with the main hardware. Is the benchmark really low for a system this old? Is it low because its being compared to newer systems? rMBP mid 2012 - 16 gig RAM Mac OS X 10.12.5Intel Core i7 @ 2700 MHzGraphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M
Hey folks, I'm new to this forum, so thanks for your patience with my ignorance. I've been experiencing abnormal shutdowns of my MBPr (mid-2012) whilst using Google Maps. Usually (but not always) the fan would go loud and then black screen. This was mostly on the Earth mode but more recently it happened with maps, too. I tried re-setting PRAM, SCM, etc., but nothing seems to have worked. I wanted to do some tests and thus discovered Novabench. During the test, when colour visualisations appeared (I don't know how this part of the test this is called), the Mac would crash—every single time. Any thoughts? Btw, attached is part of a screenshot which captures the last second of the test at which point the computer shut down. Many thanks, Pete P.S. My Mac was serviced three months ago because of the well-known video issue this line-up is having: https://www.apple.com/uk/support/macbookpro-videoissues/. Seems odd the problem would return?
