Apple has finally unveiled its highly-anticipated new MacBook Pro models, which boast up to 6x faster performance than the previous generation of Intel-based MacBook Pros.
The latest models, which come in 14-inch and 16-inch sizes, feature the new M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, which offer greater power efficiency and battery life compared to the previous-generation M1 Pro and M1 Max chips.
According to Apple, the new MacBook Pro models offer the longest battery life ever in a Mac, with up to 22 hours of usage. They also support 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.
The M2 Pro, which powers the 14-inch MacBook Pro, features a 10- or 12-core CPU with up to eight high-performance and four high-efficiency cores, offering up to 20 percent greater performance over the M1 Pro. It also has 200 GB/s of unified memory bandwidth and up to 32 GB of unified memory.
The M2 Max, which powers the 16-inch MacBook Pro, “pushes workflows to the extreme,” according to Apple. It features a much larger GPU with up to 38 cores and delivers up to 30 percent greater graphics performance than the M1 Max. It also includes 400 GB/s of unified memory bandwidth, which is twice that of the M2 Pro.
