The new MacBook Pro boasts significant improvements in performance, offering up to six times faster speeds than the fastest Intel-based MacBook Pro. This makes it ideal for demanding professional workflows. Additionally, the new MacBook Pro supports up to 96GB of unified memory, providing even more power for heavy-duty tasks.
This makes it an excellent choice for creative professionals, developers, and other power users. Apple today announced the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro featuring M2 Pro and M2 Max, Apple’s next-generation pro silicon that brings even more power-efficient performance and battery life to pro users. With M2 Pro and M2 Max — the world’s most powerful and efficient chip for a pro laptop — MacBook Pro tackles demanding tasks, like effects rendering, which is up to 6x faster than the fastest Intel-based MacBook Pro, and colour grading, which is up to 2x faster.
Building on the unprecedented power efficiency of Apple silicon, the battery life on the MacBook Pro is now up to 22 hours — the longest battery life ever in a Mac. For enhanced connectivity, the new MacBook Pro supports Wi-Fi 6E, which is up to twice as fast as the previous generation, as well as advanced HDMI, which supports 8K displays for the first time. With up to 96GB of unified memory in the M2 Max model, creators can work on scenes so large that PC laptops can’t even run them.
Rounding out the unrivalled features of the MacBook Pro are its renowned Liquid Retina XDR display, an extensive array of connectivity, 1080p FaceTime HD camera, a six-speaker sound system, and studio-quality mics. When combined with macOS Ventura, the MacBook Pro user experience is unrivalled. Customers can order the new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro today, with availability beginning Tuesday, January 24.
“MacBook Pro with Apple silicon has been a game changer, empowering pros to push the limits of their workflows while on the go and do things they never thought possible on a laptop,”
said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
“Today the MacBook Pro gets even better. With faster performance, enhanced connectivity, and the longest battery life ever in a Mac, along with the best display in a laptop, there’s simply nothing else like it.”
