Apple-aficionados rejoice. The MacBook Pro family is getting some seriously speedy improvements.
The fastest MacBook Pro in history is coming to an Apple store near you with an 8-core processor. These 8th and 9th generation processors can deliver Turbo Boost up to 5.0 GHz, while the little brother 13-inch model boasts Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.7 GHz thanks to the quad-core processing.
The laptops also come with fast SSD storages, Apple T2 security chips for better security, and Thunderbolt 3 ports.
Boasting macOS Mojave, the new MacBook Pro features a Retina display with 500 nits of brightness and support for the P3 wide colour gamut and True Tone technology. Elsewhere, stereo speakers with wide-stereo sound give the audiophiles out there the best experience they could hope for.
Apart from the dynamic controls with the Touch Bar and a large Force Touch trackpad, the computers also feature the security and convenience of Touch ID.
Tom Boger, Apple's senior director of Mac Product Marketing explains:
“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. 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.”
