The 16-inch MacBook Pro features a new built-in smart keyboard, a redesigned scissor-style structure and 1mm keystroke that makes the keyfeel more satisfying and delivers a better input experience on your Mac laptop. In addition, the 16-inch MacBook Pro features a six-speaker sound system, long-lasting battery life, touch bar, Touch ID, force trackpad, and Apple T2 security chip.
“Our professional users say they want their next MacBook Pro to have a larger display, speed, as large a battery as possible, a great laptop keyboard, stunning speakers, and massive storage capacity. The 16-inch MacBook Pro not only brings all this, but also many of them unexpectedly wonderful. Tom Boger, Senior Director of Marketing for Apple Mac and iPad Products, says, “It has a gorgeous 16-inch retina display, up to 8 core processors, a next-generation graphics processor, more advanced thermal design, a new built-in smart keyboard, a six-speaker sound system, and a 100-watt-hour high-capacity battery pool with up to 8TB storage and 64GB of high-speed memory. This computer, the pinnacle of Mac laptops, is only designed to satisfy the ultimate pursuit of professional users. ”
The largest retina display on Mac laptops of all generations
The MacBook Pro’s 500-nits-up, P3 wide-color gamut-enabled, gorgeous retina display is popular with professional users, and this 16-inch size makes it the largest retina display on Mac laptops in generations. With a resolution of 3072×1920 and a pixel density of 226 ppi, the 16-inch retina display delivers nearly 6 million pixels, giving you a more immersive visual experience in front of the screen. Each display is individually calibrated at the factory to ensure the accuracy of gamma, white dot and primary color.
New built-in magic keyboard
The 16-inch MacBook Pro features a new built-in, smartkeyboard, optimized scissor-style structure for a 1mm keystroke and a stable key feel, while Apple’s dome-style rubber gaskets can accumulate more potential energy and make every key to be responsive. After extensive research and user surveys of engineering and keydesign, the 16-inch MacBook Pro ultimately delivers a comfortable, quiet, and satisfying keyboard. The new built-in magic keyboard also offers solid Esc keys and inverted T-arranged arrow keys, as well as touch bars and touch IDs to make your input experience on your Mac laptop even better.
More advanced thermal design
The 16-inch MacBook Pro features the most advanced thermal architecture ever built on Mac laptops, allowing the system to run at higher power. The precision-designed fan has larger impellers and longer fan leaves, combined with larger vents, which increases air flow by 28%, while the heat sink increases by 35%, resulting in a significant increase in heat dissipation compared to the past. The 16-inch MacBook Pro can increase power by up to 12 watts in continuous power compared to previous generation designs for heavy processing.
Powerful processors and high-speed memory
Whether it’s compiling code, editing multi-camera video, or making 3D animations, MacBook Pro users need professional-level computing everywhere. The 16-inch MacBook Pro features the latest 6-core and 8-core ninth-generation processors for delivering fast performance, and the Turbo Boost accelerates up to 5.0 GHz, up to 2.1x more performance than the 4-core 15-inch MacBook Pro1 。 The powerful central processor, with up to 64GB of high-speed memory on your Mac laptop for the first time, and a more advanced thermal design, make it up to a professional workload never seen before on the MacBook Pro.
Compared to the fastest 4-core 15-inch MacBook Pro:
Music producers play large multi-track projects in Logic Pro X, where the number of Amp Designer plug-ins can be increased up to 2.1 times.
When scientists and researchers simulate powertrains in MATLAB, they can be 2.1 times faster.
When developers compile code with Xcode, it can be up to 1.8 times faster.
Photographers can be 1.7x faster when applying complex edits to photos in Photoshop.
Next-generation graphics processor
Graphics performance is critical for professionals, whether it’s creating the next game piece, rendering complex 3D scenes, or coloring blockbusters. The 16-inch MacBook Pro features the new AMD Radeon Pro 5000M Series graphics processor, the first 7nm mobile discrete graphics card for professional users. With the first optional 8GB GDDR6 memory on a Mac laptop, professional users can handle tasks that require a lot of graphics processor resources faster than ever before. When the user chooses a graphics processor as standard, it achieves a 2.1x graphics performance improvement from the previous generation standard. When you choose a high-matching graphics processor, you’ll achieve up to 80 percent higher graphics performance than the previous generation.
Compared to the previous generation of 8-core, 15-inch MacBook Pro with a high graphics processor:
When the video clipper stomography DaVinci Resolve is, it can achieve up to 1.8x effect-effect rendering speed.
Players will be able to run games like Fortnite more smoothly with performance up to 1.6times higher.
When developers use Unity for game development, they can experience a 1.4x scene presentation speed.
The MacBook Pro poweres these performance with a 100-watt-hour battery, the largest battery since the mac laptop was born, extending battery life by an hour and up to 11 hours for wireless browsing or Apple TV app video playback.
The first Mac laptop with an 8TB SSD
The new MacBook Pro doubles standard SSD storage to 512GB and 1TB as professionals need more capacity for laptops to store large rusis and large projects. At the same time, for the first time, the MacBook Pro has a stunning 8TB storage option with the largest SSD storage capacity of any Mac laptop in history.
Higher fidelity audio experience
The 16-inch MacBook Pro features a completely redesigned six-speaker hi-fi system that brings a further audio experience to the Mac laptop for musicians, podcasters, and video editors. The vibration-cancelling bass unit is created with a new Apple patented technology that uses two opposite speaker-driven units to reduce noise that affects sound quality, making the final sound clearer and more natural than ever before, and making the bass sound range half an octave lower. The upgraded array of high-performance microphones reduces hissing by 40% and further enhances the signal-to-noise ratio, making it almost comparable to a common professional-grade digital microphone, resulting in pure sound recordings and even the ability to capture extremely soft details.
16-inch MacBook Pro starts at RMB 18,999
