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 Max also offers an enhanced media engine that features two ProRes accelerators for even higher multi-stream performance.

Content creators can now edit up to 30 streams of 4K ProRes video or up to seven streams of 8K ProRes video in Final Cut Pro. 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.

Additionally, the latest 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.

This Liquid Retina Display also supports P3 wide color gamut along with 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.

The MagSafe 3, on the other hand, makes connecting a charging cable quick and easy while protecting MacBook Pro. On top of that, you can fast charge the latest MacBook Pro models up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes.
