Apple has introduced its new 16-inch MacBook Pro during its second-largest event in just about as many months. The products that were launched are M1 Pro and M1 Max. The company promised an upgrade in both design and performance. Models will be available in silver and space gray next week, with a starting price of $2,499.
Apple during the unveilement said it has completely reimagined MacBook Pro powered by the all-new M1 Pro and M1 Max — the first pro chips designed for the Mac and they are available in 14- and 16-inch models. The company further said that the MacBook Pro delivers groundbreaking processing, graphics, and machine learning (ML) performance whether running on battery or plugged in, as well as amazing battery life — enabling workflows previously unimaginable on a notebook.
In addition, the new MacBook Pro also features a stunning Liquid Retina XDR display, a wide range of ports for advanced connectivity, a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, and the best audio system in a notebook.
Given the specification of the newly released MacBooks, it was said that both have the same number of computing cores (eight performance cores, and two low-power cores). The Pro supports 32GB RAM, the Max supports 64GB. The Pro has a 16 core GPU, and the Max has a 32 core GPU. The Pro’s memory bandwidth is 200GB/sec, the Max has a whopping 400GB/sec.
The new MacBook Pros are powered by the new chips, which deliver up to 70% faster CPU performance than the M1.
When compared to the previous-generation high-end 13-inch model, the all-new 14-inch MacBook Pro is immensely more powerful and likewise, when compared to the previous generation, the new 16-inch MacBook Pro delivers massive gains in performance for the most complex workflows in areas that matter most for pros.4
