With great power comes great capability.
MacBook Pro elevates the notebook to a whole new level of performance and portability. Wherever your ideas take you, you'll get there faster than ever with high-performance processors and memory, advanced graphics, blazing-fast storage, and more.
More power at its cores.
With eighth-generation Intel Core processors, MacBook Pro reaches new heights in compute performance. The 15-inch model now features a 6-core Intel Core i9 processor that works up to 70 percent faster than the previous generation, enabling up to 4.8GHz Turbo Boost speeds. And a quad-core processor on the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar now makes it up to twice as fast as the previous generation. So when you're powering through pro-level processing jobs like compiling code, rendering 3D models, adding special effects, layering multiple tracks, or encoding video, you'll get everything done. Faster.
Run more. Wait less.
For faster performance when working with large files, or running multiple pro apps or virtual machines, the 15-inch MacBook Pro can now be configured with up to 32GB of high-performance 2400MHz DDR4 memory.
Eye-opening graphics performance.
MacBook Pro features a Radeon Pro discrete GPU in every 15-inch model, combining impressive power with remarkable power efficiency. And now we've paired each discrete GPU with 4GB of GDDR5 memory standard, giving you fluid, real-time performance for pro tasks like rendering 3D titles in Final Cut Pro X. The 13-inch model with Touch Bar features powerful integrated graphics with 128MB of embedded DRAM ' twice as much as the previous generation ' which accelerates graphics tasks. That means more time for what matters most ' creating amazing work.
Radeon Pro Vega graphics.
The 15-inch MacBook Pro now offers Radeon Pro Vega GPU options ' the first discrete mobile Vega GPUs in a notebook. Featuring the same graphics architecture used in iMac Pro, Vega delivers an enhanced compute engine and utilizes High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2). HBM2 doubles the memory bandwidth to the GPU while doing so at considerably lower power, so more of the graphics power budget can be used by the GPU itself. The result is significantly faster graphics performance ' up to 60 percent faster than the Radeon Pro 560X15 ' for tackling demanding video, 3D, rendering, and compute workloads.
The next generation of security.
Introducing the Apple T2 Security Chip ' second-generation custom Mac silicon designed by Apple to make MacBook Pro even more secure. Featured on the 13- and 15-inch models with Touch Bar, the Apple T2 Security Chip includes a Secure Enclave coprocessor that provides the foundation for secure boot and encrypted storage capabilities. It also consolidates many discrete controllers, including the system management controller, audio controller, and SSD controller, into one.
Make quicker work of everything.
MacBook Pro includes a solid-state drive that's blazing fast, with sequential read speeds up to 3.2GB/s. The 15-inch model is available with up to a 4TB SSD, and the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is available with up to a 2TB SSD ' enough space to take even your biggest files with you, like large photo libraries or video projects. So you can boot up, launch multiple apps, or import huge files in a flash. And with the Apple T2 Security Chip, everything is automatically encrypted on the fly. (source: www.apple.com)
