Apple Releases New 8-Core MacBook Pro!

Posted May 21, 2019 at 5:37pm by iClarified
Apple has just released an updated MacBook Pro with faster 8th- and 9th-generation Intel Core processors, bringing eight cores to MacBook Pro for the first time.

MacBook Pro now delivers two times faster performance than a quad-core MacBook Pro and 40 percent more performance than a 6-core MacBook Pro, making it the fastest Mac notebook ever. These new processors, combined with powerful graphics, the brilliant and colorful Retina display, super-fast SSDs, the Apple T2 Security Chip, all-day battery life and macOS, make MacBook Pro the world’s best pro notebook.

“Whether it’s college students mastering a course of study, developers building world-class apps or video editors creating feature films, we’re constantly amazed at what our customers do with their MacBook Pro,” said Tom Boger, Apple’s senior director of Mac Product Marketing. “Now with 8-core processors for an incredible performance boost, along with its stunning Retina display, fast storage, all-day battery life and running macOS, MacBook Pro continues to be the world’s best pro notebook and we can’t wait to get it into our customer’s hands to see what they do next.”

Powerful Performance Boost for Pro Workloads
MacBook Pro is more powerful than ever for compiling code, processing high-resolution images, rendering 3D graphics, editing multiple streams of 4K video and more. The 15-inch MacBook Pro now features faster 6- and 8-core Intel Core processors, delivering Turbo Boost speeds up to 5.0 GHz, while the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar features faster quad-core processors with Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.7 GHz.

When compared to the fastest quad-core 15-inch MacBook Pro, the new MacBook Pro with 8-core processors is up to two times faster, so:
● Music producers can play back massive multi-track projects with up to two times more Alchemy plug-ins in Logic Pro X.
● 3D designers can render scenes up to two times faster in Maya Arnold.
● Photographers can apply complex edits and filters up to 75 percent faster in Photoshop.
● Developers can compile code up to 65 percent faster in Xcode.
● Scientists and researchers can compute complex fluid dynamics simulations up to 50 percent faster in TetrUSS.
● Video editors can edit up to 11 simultaneous multicam streams of 4K video in Final Cut Pro X.

The World’s Best Pro Notebook
Along with these powerful new processors, MacBook Pro features the best Mac notebook display ever, a stunning Retina display with 500 nits of brightness, support for the P3 wide color gamut and True Tone technology, for a natural, true-to-life viewing experience. It also comes with incredibly immersive stereo speakers with wide-stereo sound, the security and convenience of Touch ID, dynamic and contextual controls with Touch Bar and a large Force Touch trackpad. MacBook Pro also features blazing fast SSD storage, the Apple T2 Security Chip for enhanced security, and powerful and versatile Thunderbolt 3 ports for data transfer, charging and connecting up to two 5K displays or four external GPUs.

Hey everyone. So how much improved is the new 13” MacBook with touchbar over the 2018 model? Has the processor been improved? I see they upgraded the keyboard components.

Apparently not much. They use new, more efficient processors, but the raw processor speeds didn’t change much. The changes to the Pro were substantial, with matching Pro prices, but the Air upgrade wasn’t nearly as significant.

Key question: how easily can I swap out the overpriced Apple SSDs and install my own, as that’s the SINGLE biggest impact on price. It’s too bad you can’t opt out of the obnoxious Touch Bar for the Mac Book Pros (or ANY of the new Mac Book’s), as they offer nothing of use for most users. Guess I’ll have to wait after the initial release to read the final reviews to learn just how much it’ll cost.
