Apple has unveiled the the 8-core MacBook Pro. As expected, the new MacBoo Pro has better performance and more processing power for intensive apps. Here’s what we know about the new MacBook Pro.

According to the official Apple site, the new MacBook Pro is equipped with the 8th and 9th generation Intel processors. The new processors have eight cores, which is a first for the Apple laptops. Previously, MacBooks only had up to six cores for Intel processors.

Due to the better performance, the new MacBook Pro is great for running processing intensive apps. The new MacBook can support apps such as the Logic Pro X for music production, and Maya Arnold 3D render up to twice its workload. Meanwhile, Photoshop users can add effects to images faster by around 75 percent.

Lastly, scientists computing complex scientific math with TetrUSS and video editors using Final Cut Pro X can also feel the improved processing of this laptop. Among professionals and amateurs, the MacBook line of laptops are great for content creation regardless if its artistic, scientific or just heavy number crunching.

The new MacBook Pro with these specs costs around $1,799 for the 13-inch MacBook Pro with the Touch Bar and $2,399 15-inch MacBook Pro. The new laptops are also available for purchase as of today, and can be found on official Apple stores and the online site.

Aside from the new MacBook Pro, Apple has been silently releasing their newest devices despite its improved specs. Previously, the MacBook Air’s OS was upgraded without much hype and new iPads were also released. If this continues, we may see future releases to be announced silently like this one.

After this release, more devices could be announced in the upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference 2019. Apple is currently focusing on more of its services such as improving its existing ones and introducing new subscriptions. So far, Apple has introduced four new subscriptions which focuses more on TV shows, magazines and gaming. For now, we’ll have to wait for anything new coming to MacBooks this June.
