In addition to announcing the new AirPods and HomePod mini colours, Apple also announced two new MacBook Pro notebooks. The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops join the existing 13-inch MacBook Pro with the highlight being powered by M1 Pro and M1 Max SoC.
Both the chips are a huge leap forward with the M1 Pro featuring a deca-core CPU with eight high-performance cores and two high-efficiency cores, along with a 16-core GPU that allows the M1 Pro-powered MacBook Pro deliver up to 70 percent faster CPU performance than M1, and up to 2x faster GPU performance.
The M1 Max features a similar 10-core CPU but doubles the GPU with 32-cores, memory bandwidth to up to 400GB/s and up to 64GB of unified memory. This type of power promises performance, never seen before in a prosumer laptop.
Both MacBook Pros feature a Liquid Retina XDR display, HDMI and SDXC card ports, a 1080p FaceTime HD camera that adds a notch on the display and runs macOS Monterey.
The new MacBook Pro models with M1 Pro and M1 Max can be ordered today with the retail sales starting from October 26. The new 14-inch MacBook Pro model pricing starts from Rs. 1,94,900 whereas the 16-inch MacBook Pro pricing starts from Rs. 2,39,900.
