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
-Retouch, edit, and work with high-resolution photos in Photoshop at lightning speed.
-Build code, run multiple virtual machines, and see your work take shape — faster than ever before.
-Edit multicam clips in Final Cut Pro X using up to 11 streams of Apple ProRes RAW 4K video on the 15-inch MacBook Pro.
More power at its cores.
With the latest Intel Core processors, MacBook Pro reaches new heights in compute performance. The 15-inch model now features a ninth-generation 8-core Intel Core i9 processor that reaches Turbo Boost speeds up to 5.0GHz. Giving 3D graphics apps like Autodesk Maya 40% faster render speeds compared to the previous generation 6-core processor and up to 2x faster render speeds than a quad-core processor.2 And a new eighth-generation quad-core processor on the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar 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.
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 be configured with up to 32GB of high-performance 2400MHz DDR4 memory.
Eye-opening graphics performance.
MacBook Pro features a Radeon Pro discrete GPU in every 15-inch model, combining impressive power with remarkable power efficiency. And we’ve paired each discrete GPU with 4GB of GDDR5 memory 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, which accelerates graphics tasks. That means more time for what matters most — creating amazing work.
Radeon Pro Vega graphics.
The 15-inch MacBook Pro offers Radeon Pro Vega GPU options — the first discrete mobile Vega GPUs in a notebook. Featuring the same graphics architecture used in iMac Pro, Vega delivers an enhanced compute engine and utilizes High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2). HBM2 doubles the memory bandwidth to the GPU while doing so at considerably lower power, so more of the graphics power budget can be used by the GPU itself. The result is significantly faster graphics performance — up to 60 percent faster than the Radeon Pro 560X13 — for tackling demanding video, 3D, rendering, and compute workloads.
Desktop-class graphics without the desktop.
Blackmagic Design has created two external GPUs (eGPUs) ideal for MacBook Pro.19 So you can have desktop-class graphics performance without giving up the portability of a notebook. Housed in an all-in-one aluminum enclosure, Blackmagic eGPUs are powerful yet quiet, charge your Mac using Thunderbolt 3, and have built-in I/O connections to drive both a Thunderbolt 3 display and VR accessories simultaneously. Choose the Blackmagic eGPU to accelerate pro apps and enjoy supersmooth gaming or the Blackmagic eGPU Pro for the ultimate workstation-class graphics performance for your pro app workflows and VR content creation.
The next generation of security.
MacBook Pro is equipped with the Apple T2 Security Chip — our second-generation custom Mac silicon designed to make everything you do even more secure. Featured on the 13- and 15-inch models with Touch Bar, the Apple T2 Security 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.
The most powerful and versatile port ever.
Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra-high bandwidth with the ultra-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 40Gb/s 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 right side up.
