During AMD’s CES 2023 presentation, when the CPU manufacturer announced its Ryzen 7000 lineup of mobile processors for use in various classes of laptops, the company also compared its high-end part, the Ryzen 9 7940HS, to the Apple M1 Pro, noting that the latest chip is faster. by 30 percent.
While giving the presentation, an individual discovered that the company had hired people using a 14-inch MacBook Pro to show off the performance slides, the same device that features either the M1 Pro or M1 Max. The irony will surely make some people laugh.
Third-party production teams use MacBook Pro models for certain presentations, and AMD was surprised here
The comical results of AMD’s CES 2023 presentation were provided by Ian Zelbo on Twitter. He later discovered two other Macs being used to demo the performance chips of Ryzen processors and compared several benchmarks to the M1 Pro.
While one might point the finger at AMD in an impulsive act, that’s not their fault. When preparing for such an event, companies often recruit third-party production teams, and these contract personnel are equipped with high-end MacBook Pro models.

The reason for having such products is simple; For reliable work that requires machines to run flawlessly without interruption, consumers will turn to the MacBook. For intensive tasks, the MacBook Pro will go with the M1 Pro or M1 Max thanks to the higher CPU and GPU core count.
Other Twitter users were kind enough to point out that this critical bug wasn’t AMD’s fault because the company can’t decide which hardware the separate production teams will use during the actual presentation.

If AMD had hired a separate production team, those people would likely have been outfitted with Windows machines, possibly AMD sports processors. Then again, suppose one of my laptops stopped working due to a random BSOD or crash? AMD will be the center of negative attention again.
