Apple has announced the release of new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops, featuring the company’s next-generation pro silicon, M2 Pro and M2 Max.
According to Apple, the new chips bring improved power-efficient performance and battery life to pro users. The new MacBook Pro can tackle demanding tasks, like effects rendering, which is up to 6x faster than the fastest Intel-based MacBook Pro, and color grading, which is up to 2x faster.
The M2 Pro and M2 Max chips offer unprecedented power efficiency, resulting in battery life that can last up to 22 hours, the longest battery life ever in a Mac.
The new MacBook Pro also supports Wi-Fi 6E, which is up to twice as fast as the previous generation, as well as advanced HDMI, which supports 8K displays for the first time. This enables professionals to work on high-resolution videos and graphics with ease.
The M2 Max model comes with up to 96GB of unified memory, allowing creators to work on scenes that PC laptops can’t even run.
The new MacBook Pro models also feature Apple’s renowned Liquid Retina XDR display, an extensive array of connectivity options, a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, a six-speaker sound system, and studio-quality mics. When combined with macOS Ventura, the MacBook Pro user experience is unparalleled.
The new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models are available for order starting today, with availability beginning on Tuesday, January 24th.
The new 14-inch MacBook Pro with M2 Pro starts at $1,999, with the 16-inch model starting at $2,499.
