Small chip. Giant leap.
It’s here. Our first chip designed specifically for Mac. Packed with an astonishing 16 billion transistors, the Apple M1 system on chip (SoC) integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O and so much more onto a single tiny chip. With incredible performance, custom technologies and industry-leading power efficiency,1 M1 is not just a next step for Mac — it’s another level entirely.
8-core CPU We’re on a power chip.
The 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 generation2 — all with unbelievable energy efficiency.
Creates beauty like a beast.
The 8-core GPU in the Apple M1 chip is the most advanced graphics processor we’ve ever built. Full stop. And it brings the world’s fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer,7 delivering a ridiculous 5x boost in graphics horsepower.
16-core Neural Engine. Smarts, meet speed. Machine learning (ML) brings task-smashing speed and automation to video analysis, voice recognition, image processing and more. And the M1 chip with 16-core Neural Engine and a full stack of technologies takes ML performance on MacBook Pro into the stratosphere.
The power of macOS Big Sur on M1.
Developed to unlock the potential of the M1 chip, macOS Big Sur transforms Mac with major performance benefits and so much more. Powerful updates for apps. A beautiful new design. Industry-leading privacy features and best-in-class security. It’s our most powerful software ever — running on our most advanced hardware yet.
See the better picture.
With the brilliant Retina display, images take on an incredible level of detail and realism. Text is sharp and clear. Bright LED backlighting delivers deep blacks and bright whites. P3 wide colour brings even more vibrant greens and reds than sRGB. And every MacBook Pro features True Tone technology, so the white balance automatically adjusts to match the colour temperature of the light around you — for a more natural viewing experience.
Camera and mics
Be seen. Be heard.
Thanks to M1, the FaceTime HD camera can now take full advantage of our latest image signal processor — improving image quality in video conferences and pulling out more details in both shadows and highlights. And whether you’re running a meeting, hosting a podcast or connecting with friends and family, new studio-quality mics will make sure everyone hears you loud and clear
