Mac client consumes battery rapidly

Hi There

Eve Mac client consumes battery extremely fast, 20% battery power for 10 minutes of gameplay

My MacBook Pro is an M3 max model
Half of EVE graphic settings are high, others are medium

Is that normal? Are others ever facing this issue?

Thanks and fly safe! o7

MacBooks are not for gaming. They are for surfing social media while sitting conspicuously in a boutique coffee shop.

And yet they play Eve in 4K at 160fps…

The answer is that it’s fairly normal. You can reduce the game’s resolution and cap the frame rate to reduce the amount of work the chip is doing but anything that demands peak performance is going to drink battery, even on a super efficient chip.
