Apple updated the MacBook Pro with faster 8th and 9th generation Intel Core processors, bringing eight cores to the MacBook Pro for the first time. The MacBook Pro now delivers twice the performance of a quad-core MacBook Pro and 40 percent more performance than a 6-core MacBook Pro, making it the fastest Mac notebook ever. 1 These new processors, combined with powerful graphics, the brilliant and colorful Retina screen, super-fast SSDs, Apple T2 Security Chip, all-day life and macOS, make the MacBook Pro the world's best pro notebook.
"Regardless of whether university students who master a degree, developers build world-class programs or video editors who make feature films, we are constantly amazed at what our customers do with the MacBook Pro," said Tom Boger, Apple's senior executive of Mac Product Marketing. "Now with 8-core processors for an incredible performance enhancement, along with its amazing Retina display, fast storage, all-day life, and ongoing macOS, MacBook Pro remains the world's best pro notebook and we can't wait to get it in our customers' hands to see what they are doing next.
