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, amazingly fast storage and more.
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. This gives 3D graphics apps like Autodesk Maya up to 40 per cent faster render speeds compared with 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 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 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.
Radeon Pro Vega graphics.
The 15-inch MacBook Pro offers Radeon Pro Vega GPU options — the first discrete mobile Vega GPUs in a notebook. Vega, the same graphics architecture found in iMac Pro, delivers an enhanced compute engine and utilises 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 per cent faster than the Radeon Pro 560X13 — for tackling demanding video, 3D, rendering and compute workloads.
More ways to be productive. Always within reach.
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.
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 film.
Just what you need, Just 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.
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.
Apple T2 Security Chip
The next generation of security.
Every 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. 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.
Make quicker work of everything.
MacBook Pro includes a solid-state drive that’s amazingly 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.
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 the right way up.
Display and Audio
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 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 soundstage that feels and sounds much wider than its physical dimensions imply. Films 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.
Extend your desktop. With iPad.
Sidecar lets you extend your workspace by using your iPad as a second Mac display. Work in one app while you reference another, or view your artwork on your MacBook Pro while you use tools and palettes on your iPad. You can also mirror the screens so they both display the same content, making it perfect for sharing exactly what you see with others.
Express your creativity. With Apple Pencil.
Bring the ease and precision of Apple Pencil to your favourite creative Mac apps with Sidecar. Use Apple Pencil to design in Illustrator, edit photos in Affinity Photo or create 3D models in ZBrush. And the handy sidebar puts essential Command, Control and Shift keys right at your fingertips.
Keyboard and Trackpad.
Your workspace just got quieter.
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.
