MacBook Pro: More power - More performance - More pro
- New eighth-generation Intel processors.
- Heaps of memory for running multiple pro apps.
- Stunning Retina display with True Tone technology.
- Touch Bar for working more productively.
With great power comes great capability.
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.
More power at its cores.
With eighth-generation Intel Core processors, MacBook Pro reaches new heights in compute performance. The 15-inch model is now available with a 6-core Intel Core i9 processor that works up to 70 per cent faster than the previous generation, enabling up to 4.8GHz Turbo Boost speeds. And a quad-core processor on the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar now makes it up to twice as fast as the previous generation. 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.
Run more. Wait less.
For faster performance when working with large files, or running multiple pro apps or virtual machines, the 15-inch MacBook Pro can now be configured with high-performance 2400MHz DDR4 memory.
Eye-opening graphics performance.
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 with Touch Bar 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.
Desktop-class graphics without the desktop.
Blackmagic Design has created an external GPU (eGPU) ideal for MacBook Pro.14 So you can have desktop-class graphics performance without giving up the portability of a notebook. Housed in an all-in-one aluminium enclosure, the Blackmagic eGPU is powerful yet quiet, charges your MacBook Pro using Thunderbolt 3, and has built-in I/O connections to drive both a Thunderbolt 3 display and VR accessories simultaneously. With the Blackmagic eGPU and MacBook Pro, you can accelerate pro apps, create VR content and enjoy remarkably smooth gaming anywhere you roam.
The next generation of security.
Introducing the Apple T2 chip - second-generation custom Mac silicon designed by Apple to make MacBook Pro even more secure. Featured on the 13- and 15-inch models with Touch Bar, the Apple T2 chip 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 chip brings a familiar voice to MacBook Pro - "Hey Siri" is always ready to open apps, find documents, play music or answer your questions.
Make quicker work of everything.
MacBook Pro includes a solid-state drive that's blazing fast, with sequential read speeds up to 3.2GB/s. So you can boot up, launch multiple apps or import huge files in a flash. And with the Apple T2 chip, everything is automatically encrypted on the fly.
The most powerful and versatile port ever.
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.
More ways to be productive. Always within reach.
The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable.21 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.
Tap it. Hold it. Flick it. Slide it.
Familiar gestures make it easy to use the Touch Bar. Tap to expand the Control Strip, flick to adjust volume and brightness, or slide to rewind while watching a movie.
Tap to move between tabs in Safari.
Touch and hold to see original versions of your photos while editing.
Flick your finger to adjust brightness and volume.
Slide to choose a font colour in your Keynote slides.
Just what you need - Right where you need it.
Many of the built-in apps on your MacBook Pro have Touch Bar controls that make common actions like sending an email or formatting a document even easier. The Touch Bar changes to match the app you're using, bringing these shortcuts front and centre. And third-party apps can take advantage of the Touch Bar as well.
Slide through the timeline while editing. The Touch Bar will change to match what you're working on and bring up the tools you need from deep within the app.
Select a photo as a favourite, use auto-enhance or quickly add your photo to an album. The Touch Bar brings up editing tools too - like cropping and applying filters.
Jump to a location, fine-tune sounds, or turn your Touch Bar into a drum, piano or audio recording control panel.
Type a message faster with predictive text. The Touch Bar can suggest frequent recipients and emoji when composing a message too.
Customise what you use most.
You can create shortcuts in your Control Strip and in apps like Mail, Pages, Safari and Final Cut Pro X to help you work faster and be more productive.
Advanced security. At your fingertip.
Unlock your Mac in an instant. Use Apple Pay to make secure online purchases on participating shopping sites. Quickly access system settings and locked notes. And even switch between users - all with the touch of a finger.
Easy on the eyes - Music to your ears.
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 the 13- and 15-inch models with Touch Bar feature 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 beautifully balanced, high-fidelity sound that takes listening to new levels with wide dynamic range and more bass for maximum boom. And the speakers are connected directly to system power, enabling greater peak amplification. So you can mix a track on the fly, edit video on location or enjoy a movie on the go.
Your workspace just got quieter.
The MacBook Pro keyboard features a butterfly mechanism - providing four times more key stability than a traditional scissor mechanism, along with greater comfort. The 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro models with Touch Bar now feature a keyboard with a quieter typing experience. And the spacious Force Touch trackpad gives your fingers plenty of room to gesture and click.
