Hi! I'm still relatively new at cryptomining, but I've been playing around with xmrig for a few weeks now. In scrolling through your forums (thank you for doing this!) I noticed that my Macbook Pro (2019, 2.6 Ghz 6-core, 16 GB RAM) is performing *way* less than what I see in your post here about your (almost) similar Mac. Granted, I am running on significantly less memory and 2 less cores, but it looks like you're getting ~425/hash/second/core, while I'm only seeing ~260 hash/second/core. Any thoughts about configuration options I should look at?

Thanks!
Yes, my tests were also running with a more powerful and efficient processor - the i9-9980hk vs your i7-9750H. That's the main difference here.
