Apple has announced new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, featuring its latest M2 Pro and Max chips.
The new entry-level processor is the M2 Pro, which features a 10- or 12-core core CPU, and offers up to 20% faster performance than the M1 Pro chip, according to Apple. The GPU, meanwhile, goes up from 16 to 19 cores, promising 80% faster image processing for apps like Adobe Photoshop.
Meanwhile, Apple calls the M2 Max "the world's most powerful and efficient chip for a pro laptop." It features a 12-core CPU that is up to 20% faster than the M1 Max chip, and it has up to a 38-core GPU.
Both new MacBook Pro models support up to 96GB of unified memory. In addition, the notebooks can be configured with up to 8TB of SSD storage, which remains unchanged from the previous generation.
One of the main upgrades is battery life. The new 16-inch MacBook Pro has up to 22 hours of battery life per charge, which Apple says is the longest battery life ever in a Mac. The 14-inch model offers up to 18 hours of battery life.
As rumoured, the new MacBook Pro models support Wi-Fi 6E, which delivers up to twice the connection speeds of the previous generation.
