2021 Apple MacBook Pro (16-inch, Apple M1 Pro chip with 10‑core CPU and 16‑core GPU, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD) – Space Gray
Apple M1 Pro
M1 Pro delivers game-changing performance with amazing battery life. It features up to 10 CPU cores and up to 16 GPU cores, as well as a 16-core Neural Engine and a powerful media engine that can play as many as 4 streams of 8K video.⁷ Delivering 200GB/s of memory bandwidth, M1 Pro can be configured with up to 32GB of unified memory to handle complex professional workflows.
Many of the design aspects of the 16-inch MacBook Pro can be attributed to the processors being used. The M1 Pro and M1 Max are Apple’s high-end M-series processors that bring power and efficiency at levels never-before-seen in a notebook.
Customers can expect up to 13x graphics performance, 3.7x CPU performance, and 11x machine learning performance when using the new MacBook Pros.
Each of these processors combines the CPU, GPU, and Neural Engine into a single System on a Chip. Thanks to this design, everything happens on the same chip using unified memory, making every process faster and more efficient.
Apple boasts that both the M1 Pro and M1 Max deliver 1.7 times more performance than the latest 8-core PC laptop chip in the same power envelope. And they match the highest performance levels at 70% less power. The Windows laptop Apple compared against was actually the MSI GP66 Leopard, a 5-pound computer with a two-hour battery life under heavy load.
