Two New Pro Chips, Game-Changing Performance
M1 Pro and M1 Max revolutionize the MacBook Pro experience and
mark a huge step forward in the transition to Apple silicon on Mac.
MacBook Pro with M1 Pro and M1 Max applies a system-on-a-chip (SoC)
architecture to pro systems for the first time, featuring fast
unified memory and increased memory bandwidth for unparalleled
performance with best-in-class performance per watt and
industry-leading power efficiency.
M1 Pro takes the groundbreaking architecture of M1 to a whole
new level. Featuring a powerful up-to-10-core CPU with eight
high-performance cores and two high-efficiency cores, along with an
up-to-16-core GPU, M1 Pro delivers up to 70 percent faster CPU
performance than M1, and up to 2x faster GPU performance. M1 Pro
also delivers up to 200GB/s of memory bandwidth — nearly 3x the
bandwidth of M1 — and supports up to 32GB of fast unified memory.
Designed to dramatically speed up pro video workflows, M1 Pro adds
a ProRes™ accelerator in the media engine, delivering unbelievably
fast and power-efficient video processing.
M1 Max — the world’s most powerful chip for a pro notebook —
builds on M1 Pro, taking its amazing capabilities even further. M1
Max features the same powerful 10-core CPU as M1 Pro, and doubles
the GPU with up to a massive 32 cores for up to 4x faster GPU
performance than M1. It also has up to 400GB/s of memory bandwidth
— 2x that of M1 Pro and nearly 6x that of M1 — and up to 64GB of
fast unified memory. With even the latest PC laptops topping out at
16GB of video memory, having this huge amount of memory available
is game-changing for pro workloads, allowing pros to do things that
were previously unimaginable on a notebook. 3D artists on the new
MacBook Pro can now easily work with extreme geometry and textures
in scenes that pro PC laptops can’t even run.1 M1 Max also offers
an enhanced media engine that features two ProRes accelerators for
even higher multi-stream performance. As a result, pros can edit up
to 30 streams of 4K ProRes video or up to seven streams of 8K
ProRes video in Final Cut Pro® — more streams than on a 28-core Mac
Pro® with Afterburner®. And for the first time on any Mac, video
editors can grade color in HDR on 8K ProRes 4444 video on battery
when they’re miles away from the edit bay.2

battery life sets MacBook Pro apart from every other notebook.
Designed for Performance
Featuring a beautiful, brand new design, the 14- and 16-inch
models of MacBook Pro were designed with a focus on performance and
utility. Its all-new aluminum enclosure optimizes internal space
for more performance and features. The enclosure is precisely
machined around an advanced thermal system that can move 50 percent
more air than the previous generation, even at lower fan speeds.
The thermal design enables MacBook Pro to deliver phenomenal
sustained performance while staying cool and quiet. And because of
the efficiency of Apple silicon, the fans never even have to turn
on for most tasks users perform every day.
The new MacBook Pro also comes with a Magic Keyboard® that is
set in a double-anodized black well, which elegantly highlights the
backlit glyphs on the keys, and features a full-height function
row. Physical function keys — including a wider escape key —
replace the Touch Bar™, bringing back the familiar, tactile feel of
mechanical keys that pro users love. The new keyboard is
complemented by the industry-best Force Touch trackpad that is
perfect for pro applications.
Featuring the World’s Best Notebook Display
For the first time, MacBook Pro offers a stunning Liquid Retina
XDR display. Featuring the mini-LED technology used in iPad Pro®,
the Liquid Retina XDR display delivers up to 1,000 nits of
sustained, full-screen brightness, an incredible 1,600 nits of peak
brightness, and a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. The extreme dynamic
range brings HDR content to life with unbelievable detail in
shadows, brilliant specular highlights, deeper blacks, and more
vivid colors than ever before. It has a gorgeous P3 wide color
gamut and supports one billion colors for smoother gradients.
ProMotion® technology also comes to the Mac on this new display,
featuring an adaptive refresh rate up to 120Hz. ProMotion
automatically varies the refresh rate to match the motion of a
user’s onscreen content to help preserve battery life, and makes
tasks more fluid and even more responsive. Video editors can also
lock in a refresh rate that is optimal for their footage. The
combination of the outstanding XDR performance and super-fluid
ProMotion technology make this the world’s best notebook
Both models come with a larger display than the previous
generation — the 16-inch model offers an expansive 16.2-inch
display6 with 7.7 million pixels, the most ever on a Mac notebook.
And the 14-inch model gives users more screen real estate than
before, with a 14.2-inch active area7 and a total of 5.9 million
pixels — more pixels than the prior 16-inch MacBook Pro. The
display features even thinner borders and extends up around the
camera to provide users with even more room for their content.
Whether users are watching a movie or grading 8K video, the new
display offers a beautiful cinematic viewing experience.
Most Advanced Connectivity Ever in a MacBook Pro
The new MacBook Pro features the most advanced and versatile
connectivity ever on a Mac notebook. Both models feature three
Thunderbolt 4 ports to connect high-speed peripherals, an SDXC card
slot for fast access to media, an HDMI port for conveniently
connecting to displays and TVs, and an improved headphone jack that
supports high-impedance headphones. MagSafe® returns to MacBook Pro
with MagSafe 3, featuring an updated design and supporting more
power into the system than ever before. MagSafe 3 makes connecting
a charge cable quick and easy while protecting MacBook Pro.
Additionally, fast charge comes to the Mac for the first time,
charging up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes. With M1 Pro, users
can now connect up to two Pro Display XDRs, and with M1 Max, users
can connect up to three Pro Display XDRs and a 4K TV, all at the
same time. For wireless connectivity, MacBook Pro also features
Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.
Best Camera and Audio Ever in a Mac Notebook
The new MacBook Pro comes with a 1080p FaceTime HD camera — the
best ever in a Mac notebook — doubling resolution and low-light
performance. The camera system taps into the powerful image signal
processor (ISP) and Neural Engine of M1 Pro and M1 Max for
computational video that enhances video quality — so users appear
sharper with more natural-looking skin tones.
Delivering a next-level audio experience, the new MacBook Pro
has industry-leading, studio-quality mics that have an even lower
noise floor, resulting in clearer calls and voice recordings. A
high-fidelity six-speaker sound system features two tweeters for a
clearer soundstage and four force-cancelling woofers, resulting in
80 percent more bass. The sound system also supports spatial audio,
which creates a sophisticated, three-dimensional listening
experience. So whether users are listening to music or watching a
movie in Dolby Atmos, they will get a theater-like experience.
Altogether, this is the best audio system ever in a notebook.
macOS Monterey Optimized for M1 Pro and M1 Max
The new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro come with macOS Monterey,
the latest version of the world’s most advanced desktop operating
system. The combination of macOS Monterey and the powerful new M1
Pro and M1 Max delivers breakthrough performance and productivity
for users. FaceTime includes new audio and video features that make
calls feel more natural and lifelike, and new Continuity tools like
AirPlay® to Mac enable Apple devices to work even better together.
Live Text and Visual Lookup bring new intelligence features to
surface useful information, Safari® includes powerful tab
organization with Tab Groups, and the ease of automation comes to
the Mac with Shortcuts. Coming later this fall, SharePlay™ will
enable Mac users to have shared experiences together through
FaceTime, and Universal Control will make it easy for users to work
effortlessly across their Mac and iPad®.
With macOS Monterey and Apple silicon, Mac users can run a
greater range of apps than ever before. All of Apple’s Mac apps are
optimized for and run natively on M1 Pro and M1 Max, and there are
over 10,000 Universal apps and plug-ins available, including
Lightroom Classic, Cinema 4D, Capture One, and many more. Existing
Mac apps that have not yet been updated to Universal will run
seamlessly with Apple’s Rosetta® 2 technology, and users can also
run iPhone® and iPad apps directly on the Mac, opening a huge new
universe of possibilities. Powerful new features also come to Final
Cut Pro and Logic Pro, allowing creatives to take full advantage of
the power and performance of M1 Pro and M1 Max.
Better for the Environment
When it comes to the environment, the new MacBook Pro raises the
bar yet again, including an enclosure made with 100 percent
recycled aluminum, 100 percent recycled tin in the solder of its
main logic board, and, for the first time in a Mac notebook, the
use of 100 percent recycled rare earth elements in all magnets.
Both models are also built with 35 percent or more recycled plastic
in seven components, and all of the packaging wood fibers are from
responsibly managed forests or recycled sources. MacBook Pro
remains free of harmful substances, is manufactured using even more
renewable energy, and meets Apple’s high standards for energy
Today, Apple is carbon neutral for global corporate operations,
and by 2030, plans to have net-zero climate impact across the
entire business, which includes manufacturing supply chains and all
product life cycles. This means that every Apple device sold, from
component manufacturing, assembly, transport, customer use,
charging, all the way through recycling and material recovery, will
be 100 percent carbon neutral.
