Apple has announced new MacBook Pros and a 24-inch iMac, all powered by M3 processors. The new M3 chips are based on TSMC’s 3nm process and offer significant performance improvements over the previous generation.
The new MacBook Pros come in 14- and 16-inch models and feature Liquid Retina XDR displays with up to 1,600 nits of brightness. They also have a new Space Black finish and can be configured with up to 128GB of unified memory.
The new 24-inch iMac has a 1080p FaceTime camera, a six-speaker sound system, and a 4.5K Retina display with up to 500 nits of brightness. It also features Apple’s Neural Engine and Media Engine for creative workflows. The new M3 chips are the most powerful chips Apple has ever made. They offer up to 1.8 times faster graphics performance than the M2 chips and up to 50% more efficient cores.
The M3 chips also introduce Dynamic Caching, which allows the processors to adaptively allocate bandwidth based on the tasks at hand. This results in improved performance and battery life.
In addition, the new MacBook Pros offer up to 2 times faster performance than the previous generation. They also have a new Space Black finish, which gives them a more premium look and feel. It has an improved battery life, with up to 22 hours of runtime on a single charge.
