new MacBook Pro 16-inch (2021)

The Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch (2021) is finally here and it’s one of the most exciting laptops we’ve ever seen. The new MacBook Pro 16-inch was unveiled at Apple’s Unleashed event on October 18 and we can say it was well worth the wait.

After the success of the M1 chip and the new, smaller MacBooks and iMac, all eyes turned to WWDC 2021 back in June hoping for an announcement then, but it wasn’t meant to be, and we all had to wait until October for the new MacBook Pro 16-inch to finally be ready to be shown off.

Powered by either the 10-core M1 Pro or M1 Max chips, which feature eight performance cores and two efficiency cores, the new MacBook Pro 16-inch is a major step up performance wise, but it doesn’t end there.

Apple says both the new M1 Pro and M1 Max chips are twice as fast as the Intel Core i9 in the MacBook Pro 16-inch (2019). The M1 Pro maxes out at at 32GB RAM, while the M1 Max maxes out at 64GB. 

The company also says that efficiency of the new MacBook Pro 16-inch (2021) can extend the battery life as long as 21 hours, which is well beyond what even the longest lasting Intel or AMD laptop processors are capable of.

Moving on to the GPU, the M1 Pro MacBook Pro 16-inch features a 16 core GPU, while the M1 Max MacBook Pro 16-inch sports a 32-core GPU for the fastest graphics on a MacBook Pro ever.

There’s more to dig into, so lets break down everything we know.
