The M1 Pro and M1 Max processor provides up to 70% better performance compared to the original M1 chip. The M1 Pro graphics card is 2 times faster than the M1, while the M1 Max is up to 4 times faster than the M1.
The M1 Pro chip provides up to 200GB/s of memory bandwidth and supports up to 32GB of unified memory. The M1 Max super chip delivers up to 400GB/s of memory bandwidth — nearly twice that of the M1 Pro and nearly six times that of the M1 — and includes up to 64GB of unified memory.
Connected to a power outlet or battery power, the two laptops have the same power level.
Other features include:
- 16-core Neural Engine to accelerate on-device machine learning and improve camera performance.
- A new display engine drives multiple external monitors (while the original MacBook Pro M1 only supported one).
- Additional integrated Thunderbolt 4 controllers provide more I/O bandwidth.
- Apple’s custom image signal processor, along with the Neural Engine, uses computer video to improve image quality for clearer videos and more natural skin tone on the built-in camera.
- Better security with Apple’s latest Secure Enclave technology, hardware-verified secure boot, and runtime anti-exploit technologies.
Among the disappearances, the Touch Bar disappears at the top of the keyboard and is replaced by the classic keys.
All Apple apps for Mac are optimized to run locally on Apple’s system chips, which have more than 10,000 global apps and plug-ins available.
