Apple has unveiled its latest MacBook Pro, powered by the all-new M1 Pro and M1 Max, the first pro chips designed for the Mac.

Available in 14- and 16-inch models, it features a Liquid Retina XDR display, a wide range of ports for advanced connectivity, a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, a six-speaker sound system and “unrivalled” battery life.  Designed for developers, photographers, filmmakers, 3D artists, scientists and music producers, it will be available on October 26.

“It is a game-changing combination of phenomenal performance, unrivalled battery life and ground-breaking features,” Apple senior vice president for worldwide marketing, Greg Joswiak said.

M1 Pro delivers up to 200GB/s of memory bandwidth, nearly 3x the bandwidth of M1, and supports up to 32GB of fast unified memory. Designed to dramatically speed up pro video workflows, M1 Pro adds a ProRes accelerator in the media engine, delivering fast and power-efficient video processing.

M1 Max also offers an enhanced media engine that features two ProRes accelerators for even higher multi-stream performance. For the first time on any Mac, video editors can grade colour in HDR on 8K ProRes 4444 video on battery.

The 14-inch model delivers up to 17 hours of video playback and the 16-inch model gets up to 21 hours of video playback, said to deliver the same level of performance plugged in or using the battery.

The 14-inch model starts at RRP $2,999 and the 16-inch model starts at RRP $3,749.
