Apple has updated its MacBook Pro with the new and faster 8th- and 9th-generation Intel core processors. This is the first MacBook Pro to have eight-core processors, and in comparison to the previous MacBook Pro models, this one is said to have double the performance when compared to the quad-core MacBook Pro and about 40% better performance than the 6-core MacBook Pro.
The new MacBook Pro has the colorful Retina display, SSD storage, Apple T2 Security Chip, MacOS, and the all-day battery life. “Whether it’s college students mastering a course of study, developers building world-class apps or video editors creating feature films, we’re constantly amazed at what our customers do with their MacBook Pro,” said Tom Boger, Apple’s senior director of Mac Product Marketing. “Now with 8-core processors for an incredible performance boost, along with its stunning Retina display, fast storage, all-day battery life and running macOS, MacBook Pro continues to be the world’s best pro notebook and we can’t wait to get it into our customer’s hands to see what they do next.”
The 15-inch MacBook Pro now features faster 6- and 8-core Intel Core processors, delivering Turbo Boost speeds up to 5.0 GHz, while the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar features faster quad-core processors with Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.7 GHz.
The MacBook Pro has Retina display with 500 nits brightness, P3 wide color gamut and True Tone technology, and there is Touch ID, Touch Bar, and a Force Touch trackpad. The SSD storage is a given and there is also Apple T2 security chip, along with Thunderbolt 3 for the data transfer. The new MacBook Pros come with MacOS Mojave.
