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.
With the latest Intel Core processors, MacBook Pro reaches new heights in compute performance. The 15‑inch model is now available with an 8-core ninth-generation Intel Core i9 processor that reaches Turbo Boost speeds up to 5.0GHz. This gives 3D graphics apps like Autodesk Maya render speeds that are up to 40 per cent faster than the previous-generation 6‑core processor and up to twice as fast as a quad-core processor.2
And a new eighth-generation quad‑core processor on the 13‑inch MacBook Pro makes it ready to take on even the toughest tasks. 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.
For faster performance when working with large files, or running multiple pro apps or virtual machines, the 15‑inch MacBook Pro can be configured with up to 32GB of high‑performance 2400MHz DDR4 memory.
Every 15-inch MacBook Pro model features a Radeon Pro discrete GPU, combining impressive power with remarkable power efficiency. And now we’ve paired each discrete GPU with 4GB of GDDR5 memory as standard, giving you fluid, real‑time performance for pro tasks like rendering 3D titles in Final Cut Pro X. The 13‑inch model 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.
Now on every MacBook Pro, the Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable. It changes automatically based on what you’re doing to show you relevant tools that are intuitive to use — system controls like volume and brightness, interactive ways to adjust or browse through content, and intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text, just to name a few.
Every MacBook Pro is equipped with the Apple T2 Security Chip — our second‑generation custom-engineered Mac silicon chip designed to make everything you do even more secure. It 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. And the Apple T2 Security Chip brings a familiar voice to MacBook Pro — Hey Siri is always ready to open apps, find documents, play music or answer your questions.
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 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.
Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra‑high bandwidth with the remarkable versatility of the USB‑C industry standard to create one revved‑up universal port. It integrates data transfer, charging and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40 Gbps of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. Both sizes of MacBook Pro are available with up to four ports, so you can do all of that from either side. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you plug in, it’s always the right way up.
Display and Audio
The Retina display in MacBook Pro is the best ever in a Mac notebook. It features bright LED backlighting and a high contrast ratio, delivering deep blacks and bright whites. It supports P3 wide colour for even more vibrant greens and reds than with sRGB. And every MacBook Pro features True Tone technology. The white balance automatically adjusts to match the colour temperature of the light around you — for a more natural viewing experience. MacBook Pro has a dynamic sound stage that feels and sounds much wider than its physical dimensions imply. Movies are more immersive. Music more room-filling. And three built-in mics form directional beams that capture your voice more clearly for FaceTime calls and talking to Siri.
Keyboard and Trackpad
The MacBook Pro keyboard has a butterfly mechanism — providing four times more key stability than a traditional scissor mechanism, along with greater comfort. Every MacBook Pro now features a keyboard with a quieter typing experience. And the spacious Force Touch trackpad gives your fingers plenty of room to gesture and click.
