Apple has introduced an all-new 16-inch MacBook Pro that comes with Retina Display, the 8-core processor, up to 64GB of memory, next-generation graphics with up to 8GB of VRAM and a new advanced thermal design.
The MacBook Pro features a new Magic Keyboard with a redesigned scissor mechanism and 1mm travel. The keyboard also features a physical Escape key and an inverted-T arrangement for the arrow keys. There is also a six-speaker sound system, Touch Bar, Touch ID, Force Touch trackpad and the Apple T2 Security Chip. The device offers a resolution of 3072x1920 and a high pixel density of 226 ppi to provide an immersive experience.
According to Apple, the 16-inch MacBook Pro uses the most advanced thermal architecture ever in a Mac notebook to enable the system to run at higher power for sustained periods of time. It now has a larger impeller with extended blades along with bigger vents, resulting in a 28 per cent increase in airflow, while the heat sink is 35 per cent larger, enabling significantly more heat dissipation than before.
The new 16-inch MacBook Pro comes with the latest six and eight core 9th-generation processors with Turbo Boost speeds up to 5.0 GHz, which deliver up to 2.1 times faster performance than the quad-core 15-inch MacBook Pro. Additionally, it has AMD Radeon Pro 5000M series graphics – the first 7nm mobile discrete GPUs for pro users. This combined with DDR6 video memory and with an 8GB VRAM option for the first time, professional users such as designers, video editors will be able to tackle GPU-intensive tasks faster than ever. The device has a 100Wh battery – the largest ever in a Mac notebook, that Apple claims can deliver up to 11 hours of battery life.
With the Dark Mode feature, users can highlight content while controls recede into the background on the Retina display. Sidecar, a new feature in macOS Catalina, lets users leverage iPad as a second display or as a high-precision tablet input device using Apple Pencil.
Starting at Rs 199,900, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is available through Apple Authorised Resellers in India.
