4-, 6- and now 8-core Intel processors.
Up to 32GB of memory for running multiple pro apps.
Stunning Retina display with True Tone technology.
Touch Bar for working more productively.
With great power comes great capability.
MacBook Pro rises the notebook to a whole new level of performance and portability. Wherever your ideas take you, you’ll get there quicker than ever with high‑performance processors and memory, advanced graphics, blazing‑fast storage and more.
More power at its cores.
With the latest Intel Core processors, MacBook Pro reaches new levels in compute performance. The 15‑inch model is now available with an 8-core ninth-generation Intel Core i9 processor that can Turbo Boost speeds up to 5.0GHz. Providing 3D graphics apps like Autodesk Maya render speeds that are 40 per cent faster than the previous-generation 6-core processor and up to twice as fast as a quad-core processor. And a new eighth-generation quad‑core processor on the 13‑inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar makes it prepared 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. Quicker.
Run more. Wait less.
For quicker 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.
Every 15-inch MacBook Pro model offers a Radeon Pro discrete GPU, combining impressive power with remarkable power efficiency. And we’ve paired each discrete GPU with 4GB of GDDR5 memory as standard, providing you fluid, real‑time performance for pro tasks like rendering 3D titles in Final Cut Pro X. The 13‑inch model with Touch Bar offers powerful integrated graphics with 128MB of embedded DRAM, which accelerates graphics tasks. That means more time for what matters most: making amazing work.
Radeon Pro Vega graphics.
The 15-inch MacBook Pro provides Radeon Pro Vega GPU options — the first discrete mobile Vega GPU in a notebook. Vega, the same graphics architecture found in iMac Pro, offers an enhanced compute engine and utilises High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2). HBM2 doubles the memory bandwidth to the GPU at considerably reduced power, so more of the graphics power budget can be used by the GPU itself. The result is significantly quicker graphics performance — up to 60 per cent faster than the Radeon Pro 560X13 — for tackling demanding video, 3D, rendering and compute workloads.
Blackmagic eGPU and eGPU Pro
Desktop-class graphics without the desktop.
Blackmagic Design has created two external GPUs (eGPUs) perfect for MacBook Pro.19 So you can have desktop-class graphics performance without giving up the maneuverability of a notebook. Housed in an all-in-one aluminium enclosure, Blackmagic eGPUs are strong 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. Select the Blackmagic eGPU to accelerate pro apps and enjoy remarkably smooth gaming, or the Blackmagic eGPU Pro for the ultimate workstation-class graphics performance for pro app workflows and VR content creation.
Apple T2 Security Chip
The next generation of security.
MacBook Pro is equipped with the Apple T2 Security Chip — our second‑generation custom-engineered Mac silicon chip made to make everything you do even more secure. Offered 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 several 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 prepared 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 blazing quick, 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 with Touch Bar is available with up to a 2TB SSD — enough space to take even your largest files with you, like large photo libraries or video projects. So you can boot up, launch multiple apps or import large files in a flash. And with the Apple T2 Security Chip, everything is automatically encrypted on the way.
The most powerful and versatile port ever.
Thunderbolt 3 merges ultra‑high bandwidth with the remarkable 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, providing up to 40 Gbps 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 both side. Existing devices are easily linked with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you plug in, it is always the right way up.
More ways to be productive. Always within reach.
The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more adaptable and capable. It changes automatically based on what you are 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 simple to use the Touch Bar. Tap to expand the Control Strip, flick to adjust volume and brightness, or slide to rewind while viewing a movie.
Just what you need.
Right 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 simpler. The Touch Bar changes to match the app you are using, bringing these shortcuts front and centre. And third-party apps can benefit from the Touch Bar as well.
Customise what you use most.
You can make shortcuts in your Control Strip and in apps like Mail, Pages, Safari and Final Cut Pro X to help you work quickerand be more productive.
Advanced security. At your fingertip.
Unlock your Mac immediately. Use Apple Pay to create secure online purchases on participating websites. Rapidly access system settings and locked notes. And even alternate between users — all with the touch of a finger.
Display and Audio
Easy on the eyes.
Music to your ears.
The Retina display in MacBook Pro is the greatest ever in a Mac notebook. It offers bright LED backlighting and a high contrast ratio, delivering deep blacks and bright whites. It supports P3 wide colour for more vibrant greens and reds than with sRGB. And the 13- and 15‑inch models with Touch Bar offer True Tone technology. The white balance automatically changes to match the colour temperature of the light around you — for a more natural viewing experience. MacBook Pro has beautifully balanced, high‑fidelity sound that takes listening to new heights with wide dynamic range and more bass for maximum boom. And the speakers are linked directly to system power, enabling greater peak amplification. So you can mix a track on the fly, edit a video on location or enjoy a movie on the go.
Keyboard and Trackpad
Your workspace just got quieter.
The MacBook Pro keyboard offers a butterfly mechanism — providing four times more key stability than a traditional scissor mechanism, along with greater comfort. The 13- and 15‑inch MacBook Pro models with Touch Bar provide a keyboard with a quieter typing experience. And the spacious Force Touch trackpad offers your fingers plenty of room to gesture and click.
Offering Dark Mode, new pro-inspired features, four new apps and a redesigned Mac App Store.
