Apple introduced what has become its largest and most powerful laptop, although not for that reason more expensive, with the arrival of the expected MacBook Pro 16. Before its availability to the public, some international media have already been started publishing the first computer analysis.
Thus, in general, there have been few who have ventured to value this computer, although the general tone of the analysis advocates a device of great quality and performance, and the logical step to follow by Apple.
As expected, the design of the new MacBook Pro 16 is visually identical to the rest of the brand’s line of laptops, with thin and rounded lines, minimalist finishes, and a silver color in which only the logo stands out Backlit of the famous apple.
The main and most notable change is the arrival of its new 16-inch screen, which, although not able to reach the size of the already removed 17-inch model, offers better surface optimization and a significant reduction in frames.
Keeping in the use of its Retina screens, and although we will notice an improvement in resolution with up to 3,072 x 1,920 pixels, it is surprising that Apple has failed to reach 4K. Although we will notice a greater vividness of the colors thanks to an increase in the brightness of the laptop, it expanded to 500 nits.
Thus, it also highlights the rectification of Apple and the elimination of the much-criticized butterfly keyboard, returning to the use of its classic, but renewed Magic keyboard.
And it is that less visible but equally notable, the major changes will reside mainly in the rest of its hardware and internal components.
The first thing to note is the incorporation of the new generation of Intel Core 9000 series processors, with configurations of up to 8 cores and 16 threads and an improved cooling system that allows better working temperatures. Also, we can take advantage of even greater performance thanks to the turbo mode, which can work stably at higher frequencies for longer without heat is a problem.
On the other hand, Apple has also made changes in the way in which the computer itself dissipates heat, returning to the model used in its previous MacBook, and achieving optimum cooling that translates into an even greater improvement of this so marked rapid operation of Your processor
A fluidity that will allow us to take full advantage of its new graphics cards of the Radeon RX 5000 series, one of the most important jumps in terms of performance of the MacBook Pro 16, and the first entry of these laptops to the new RDNA architecture of AMD. As for RAM, we have configurations of up to 64 GB of DDR4, enough to face any workload with guarantees.
For the rest, the MacBook Pro 16 has the presence of Touch ID, the integration of the T2 security chip, and the possibility of changing and mounting high-performance SSDs of up to 8 TB capacity, and write speeds and Read up to 3.2 GB/s.
Returning thus to its exterior, it is surprising the inclusion of four Thunderbolt 3 connectors of the last generation (40 Gbps), which we can use both to connect high-resolution monitors and external graphics cards (something perhaps not so necessary).
However, there have also been some negative details for the computer, such as the lack of connectivity presented with the limitation of only four of these USB ports, or the total absence of an SD card reader.
Also, we must clarify that it is a computer-oriented to meet the needs of a portable workstation, so if we look for a more versatile or oriented towards other purposes such as gaming, there are other better and cheaper options.
Finally, another of the great highlights among the analyzes is the fact that Apple has finally managed to market a completely superior model of its MacBook Pro without increasing the price concerning its predecessor, remaining at $ 2,699. And it was that initially it was talked about that the new MacBook Pro 16 could have reached a whopping 3,000 dollars, and the title of the most expensive computer of the brand.
