Apple has introduced an updated MacBook Pro with faster performance and new pro features. The new MacBook Pro models with Touch Bar feature 8th-generation Intel Core processors with 6-core on the 15-inch model for up to 70 per cent faster performance and quad-core on the 13-inch model for up to two times faster performance – ideal for manipulating large data sets, performing complex simulations, creating multi-track audio projects or doing advanced image processing or film editing.
Additional updates include support for up to 32GB of memory, a True Tone display and an improved third-generation keyboard for quieter typing.
‘The latest generation MacBook Pro is the fastest and most powerful notebook we’ve ever made,’ said Philip Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing.
With the new MacBook Pro, developers can compile code faster and more easily run multiple virtual machines and test environments. And with up to 2TB SSD on the 13-inch model and up to a 4TB SSD on the 15-inch, MacBook Pro gives customers the flexibility to work with large asset libraries and projects wherever they go.
With 500 nits of brightness and support for the P3 wide colour gamut, the Retina display on MacBook Pro is the best Mac notebook display ever, claims Apple.
Also new to MacBook Pro is the Apple T2 chip, first introduced in iMac Pro. With the Apple T2 chip, MacBook Pro now delivers enhanced system security with support for secure boot and on-the-fly encrypted storage and also brings ‘Hey Siri’ to the Mac for the first time.
