It’s here! The first chip designed specifically for Mac. It is Packed with an astonishing 16 billion transistors. It integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O, and so much more onto a single tiny chip. M1 is not just a next step for Mac, it’s another level entirely.
This M1 chip makes MacBook Pro outrageously fast and powerful. Its 8‑core CPU rips through complex workflows and heavy workloads, with up to 2.8x faster processing performance than the previous generation all with unbelievable energy efficiency.
The 8-core GPU in M1 is the most advanced graphics processor built by Apple. It brings the world’s fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer, delivering a ridiculous 5x boost in graphics horsepower.
M1 chip with 16‑core Neural Engine and full stack of technologies takes machine learning performance on MacBook Pro into another level.
All your existing apps work thanks to Rosetta 2. And for the first time, you can use your favorite iPhone and iPad apps directly on macOS Big Sur. Altogether you’ll have access to the biggest collection of apps ever for Mac.
What is also extraordinary is the battery life. It is up to 20 hours, the longest in any Mac ever!
With the brilliant Retina display, images take on an incredible level of detail and realism. Thanks to M1, the FaceTime HD camera can now take full advantage of the latest image signal processor, improving image quality in video conferences and pulling out more details in both shadows and highlights.
Also, the magic keyboard lets you do everything faster and more efficiently. The refined scissor mechanism delivers a responsive, comfortable, and quiet typing experience. It provides fast, easy authentication for secure logins and purchases.
What is also very interesting is that connectivity is faster than ever. The next generation of Wi‑Fi isn’t just faster, it keeps MacBook Pro going strong even as more and more devices join the network.
