Apple officially unveiled their new 16-inch MacBook Pro today, and it’s designed for developers, photographers, filmmakers, scientists, music producers and anyone who needs a pro-level laptop. Unlike its soon to be discontinued predecessor, this model sports a brilliant 16-inch Retina Display, the latest 8-core processors, up to 64GB of memory, next-generation graphics with up to 8GB of VRAM as well as a new advanced thermal design, making it the most powerful MacBook Pro yet. One feature that is sure to please many is the new Magic Keyboard with a redesigned scissor mechanism and 1mm travel for a more satisfying key feel.

Boasting a resolution of 3072×1920 and a higher pixel density of 226 ppi, the 16-inch Retina display delivers nearly 6 million pixels and an even more immersive front-of-screen experience. Every display is individually calibrated in the factory for picture perfect gamma, white point and primary colors. To deliver the fastest performance, the 16-inch MacBook Pro features the latest 6- and 8-core 9th-generation processors with Turbo Boost speeds up to 5.0 GHz, which deliver up to 2.1 times faster performance than the quad-core 15-inch MacBook Pro. You can also configure it with 64GB of RAM for the first time, and thanks to a more advanced thermal design, it will enable pro workflows never before possible on a MacBook Pro.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro also features new AMD Radeon Pro 5000M series graphics — the first 7nm mobile discrete GPUs for pro users. Paired with GDDR6 video memory and with an 8GB VRAM option for the first time, pro users will be able to tackle GPU-intensive tasks faster than ever. Prices start at $2,399 and is available today.
