Coupled with an AMD Radeon Pro 5500M, videographers and visual effects artists are provided fast rendering, seamless playback, and smooth motion. With up to 1TB of SSD storage, you'll be able to load massive files and launch apps quickly, enabling you to work with photo and video libraries from almost anywhere.
16" 3072 x 1920 Retina Display
The MacBook Pro features a stunning 16" Retina display - the largest Retina display ever in a Mac notebook. It produces 500 nits of brightness for spectacular highlights and bright whites, while delivering deep blacks thanks to the precise photo alignment of liquid crystal molecules. And the P3 wide color gamut enables brilliant, true-to-life images and video. So no matter where you are, you'll see your work in the best possible light.
P3 Wide Color Gamut
The narrow-band LED-powered backlight allows the MacBook Pro to represent the P3 wide color gamut for brilliant, true-to-life color in photos and videos.
Up to 64GB of DDR4 Memory for More Efficient Multitasking
The 16" MacBook Pro uses fast 2666 MHz DDR4 memory that can be upgraded to 64GB for smooth performance, whether you're loading hundreds of audio samples, editing billion-pixel images, or running multiple virtual machines. This configuration comes with 16GB of memory.
Oxide Thin Film Transistor
The oxide thin film transistor (TFT) features 10 times faster pixel charging than the traditional amorphous silicon TFT, and holds the pixel voltage steady during low-frequency power-saving modes, enabling pin-sharp resolution and longer battery life. An Apple-patented metal layer in the TFT maximizes the transmittance of the pixels, enhancing brightness and color uniformity while reducing pixel cross-talk, which can cause visual artifacts.
500 Nits Brightness
A mirrorlike enhanced reflector sheet in the backlight reflects over 98% of incident light, allowing MacBook Pro to achieve 500 nits of brightness efficiently.
Graphics - Bending Reality Takes Bandwidth
The AMD Radeon Pro 5000M series delivers the most graphics horsepower ever in a MacBook Pro. The 16" MacBook Pro base model is over two times faster than the previous-generation base model, for seamless playback and faster rendering of ultra-high-definition video.
For working on graphics-intensive projects like 3D rendering or high-end game development, you can supercharge your MacBook Pro with the optional Radeon Pro 5600M. With its 40 compute units and 8GB of High Bandwidth Memory, this powerhouse GPU brings a new level of desktop-class graphics power to MacBook Pro.
This MacBook Pro has an AMD Radeon Pro 5500M.
Storage - Bring Your Whole Studio with You
The 16" MacBook Pro can be configured with up to 8TB of SSD storage - the most available in any notebook. So you can take your photo or video libraries with you no matter where you're headed. And with superfast speeds, massive files load in an instant and pro apps launch in a blink. This particular model comes with 1TB.
Processor and Memory - Working At the Speed of Thought
The 16" MacBook Pro brings a whole new class of performance to the notebook. Thanks to a more advanced thermal design, the 9th Gen 2.3 GHz Intel Core i9 8-Core processor sustains higher performance for longer periods of time and delivers up to 2.1 times the performance of a quad-core MacBook Pro. So whether you're layering dozens of tracks and effects, rendering 3D models, or compiling and testing code, you'll be doing it in no time flat.
Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra-high bandwidth with the versatility of the USB Type-C industry standard to create one revved-up universal port. It integrates data transfer, charging, and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40 Gb/s of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. The MacBook Pro is equipped with four ports, so you can do all of that from either side. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you plug in, it's always right side up. This system supports up to two 6K or four DCI 4K displays.
High-Fidelity Audio: Bigger Bass, Better Mic
The MacBook Pro has a big voice. The six-speaker sound system produces room-filling ,wide stereo sound like you've never heard from a notebook before. Dual force-cancelling woofers dramatically reduce system vibration for a clearer, more natural sound and a half-octave lower range to the bass. And the studio-quality three-mic array rivals professional third-party microphones, for creating superclean podcasts or music recordings on the go.
System Cooling: Advanced Thermal Architecture
The thermal architecture in the MacBook Pro has been completely redesigned, featuring larger impellers with improved fan blades for optimal airflow and more heat-dispersing fins for more effective cooling. The resulting gain in cooling capacity allows the MacBook Pro to deliver up to 12W more maximum sustained power.
The 16" MacBook Pro takes workflow efficiency to a new level. The Magic Keyboard features a refined scissor mechanism with 1mm travel for a responsive, comfortable, and quiet typing experience. The Touch Bar puts powerful shortcuts front and center, and Touch ID provides fast authentication. A dedicated Escape key allows quick switching between modes and views. And the inverted-T arrow keys enable fluid navigation whether you're flying through lines of code, navigating spreadsheets, or gaming.
The Touch ID enables fast, easy authentication for secure logins and purchases.
The Touch Bar delivers the commands you need most, so they are right where you need them, saving time and keystrokes.
Force Touch Trackpad
Speed your workflow with Force click and multi-touch gestures.
All-Day Battery Life and Security
The 16" MacBook Pro has the highest-capacity battery Apple has ever put in a notebook. The 100Wh lithium-polymer battery not only powers the larger display and delivers higher maximum sustained power, it also provides longer battery life - up to 11 hours of wireless web browsing and video playback. So, you'll have more time to work between charges, whether you're on or off the grid.
Apple T2 Security Chip
Every MacBook Pro is equipped with the Apple T2 Security Chip - their second‑generation custom Mac silicon designed to make everything you do even more secure. It includes a Secure Enclave coprocessor that powers Touch ID and provides the foundation for secure boot and encrypted storage capabilities. It also consolidates many discrete controllers, including the system management controller, audio controller, and SSD controller, into one.
