During its “Scary Fast” event on Monday, Apple revealed the next-generation 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops. The new M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max CPUs, which were also unveiled during the event, are among these new computers.
Every model of the new lineup features a Liquid Retina XDR display with 20 percent brighter SDR content, a built-in 1080p camera, and a six-speaker sound system. The new MacBook Pros offer up to 22 hours of battery life as well. The display also features 1,000 nits sustained and 1,600 nits of peak brightness for HDR content.
The standard M3 chip has up to an 8-core CPU and up to a 10-core GPU, the M3 Pro chip has up to a 12-core CPU and up to an 18-core GPU, and the M3 Max chip has up to a 16-core CPU and up to a 40-core GPU. The M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max chips support up to 24GB, 36GB, and 128GB of unified memory, respectively.
According to Apple, there is a 60 percent speed difference between the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 and the 14-inch M3 MacBook Pro. The 14-inch and 16-inch M3 Pro MacBook Pro are up to 40% faster than the 16-inch model with M1 Pro for consumers with more demanding workflows.
The 14- and 16-inch M3 Max MacBook Pro models provide up to 2.5x faster speeds than the 16-inch M1 Max MacBook Pro and up to 11x faster speeds than the fastest Intel-based MacBook Pro for optimal performance.
Using 3-nanometer technology, the M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max chips provide a faster, more effective next-generation GPU. They have “Dynamic Caching” technology, which allows the GPU to allocate local memory usage in real time on hardware, guaranteeing that just the precise amount of memory required for each job is consumed.
In addition to the internal improvements, the MacBook Pro series also includes Space Black as a new color. Space Black versions of the computer are limited to the M3 Pro and M3 Max models. Apple claims that the anodization seal in the finish significantly lowers fingerprints. The 14-inch M3 model is available in Silver and Space Grey, as are the M3 Pro and M3 Max variants.
Orders for the new MacBook Pro models can be placed now, and they will go on sale on Tuesday, November 7. The starting prices for the 14-inch M3 MacBook Pro are $1,599 ($1,499 for education); $1,999 ($1,849 for education) for the 14-inch M3 Pro MacBook Pro; and $2,499 ($2,299 for education) for the 16-inch MacBook Pro.
