Apple MacBook Pro Specifications

  • The Apple MacBook Pro models come in 14-inch and 16-inch sizes with an all-new design that removes the unnecessary Touchbar.

  • A 1080p Facetime webcam is available; however, it hasn't provided the Face ID.
  • The 14-inch model offers a 14.2-inch active area with a total of 5.9 million pixels, and the 16-inch variant has a 16.2-inch active area with 7.7 million pixels.
  • Both the models sport a Liquid Retina XDR display that uses Mini-LED technology.
  • The new display technology claims to deliver 1,000 nits of full-screen brightness, 1,600 nits of peak brightness and a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio.
  • The devices also pack an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120Hz.
  • Instead of the earlier Touchbar, a physical function key and a large escape key have been given.
  • MacBook Pro models come with the previous MagSafe magnetic charging support.
  • Connectivity options include Bluetooth v5.0 and Wi-Fi 6. Users can connect up to three Pro Display XDR and one 4K TV simultaneously to the model with M1 Max. However, the M1 Pro chip supports two Pro Display XDRs simultaneously.

M1 Pro and M1 Max Features

The MacBook Pro series gets upgraded silicon in two different versions- M1 Pro and M1 Max. The M1 Pro chip has a 10-core CPU with eight high-performance cores and two low-performance cores. Along with these, up to 16-core GPU are included. The company claims that the new chip can deliver up to 70 per cent faster CPU performance and two times faster GPU performance than the existing M1 chip. The M1 Pro also includes ProRes Accelerator in the media engine to enhance on-device video processing.

The M1 Max, on the other hand, is said to be the world's most powerful chip for a Pro Notebook. It has the same 10-core CPU as the M1 Pro, but it doubles the GPU to 32 cores to deliver up to four times faster GPU performance.

Both the M1 Pro and M1 Max are paired with a 16-core Neural Engine that helps enhance machine learning capabilities on the new MacBook Pro models. Apple claims that using its new M1 Max chip, professional users can edit up to 30 streams of 4K ProRes video.
