Advanced Intel Core i5 and i7 processors help you power through the most complicated technical computing tasks. Integrated Iris 6100 and Iris Pro Graphics and advanced NVIDIA graphics give you tons of pixel-driving horsepower. State-of-the-art I/O like Thunderbolt 2 gives you high-performance expansion, unprecedented in a notebook. And at the centre of it all is an entirely flash storage–based architecture that makes everything you do incredibly fast and responsive.
With over four million pixels on the 13-inch model and over five million pixels on the 15‑inch model, the Retina display is the perfect place to view and edit your high-resolution photos. Dot for dot, more of your image can fit on the screen — which makes editing photos far more precise. And all those pixels let you see fine details and textures like never before. In fact, the Retina display is so sharp, you can tell which photos are in focus just by looking at the thumbnails.
Up to 7x faster than MacBook Pro with 5400-rpm hard drive1
With two ultra-fast Thunderbolt 2 ports, two USB 3 ports and an SDXC card slot, you can build an entire photo studio round MacBook Pro. Or take it with you and import thousands of RAW images on location. Once your photos are on your computer, editing is faster and more responsive than on any notebook we’ve ever built. And fast PCIe-based flash storage lets you quickly browse large image libraries from internal storage. So you have instant access to any photo in your library.
The processor, graphics, all-flash architecture, memory and display in the 15-inch MacBook Pro give you unprecedented mobile video-editing capabilities. Super-responsive flash storage delivers up to 16 streams of 1080p ProRes (HQ) content for multicam editing in Final Cut Pro X,2 while the quad-core processors on the 15‑inch MacBook Pro decode multiple streams of video, and a powerful GPU renders millions of pixels onto the screen. You can even edit 10 streams of uncompressed 8‑bit 1080p HD video, direct from the internal storage on your 15‑inch MacBook Pro with Retina display.2
Having four times the pixels of a standard display makes video so sharp, so clear and so lifelike, your shots may look even better than you remember. And it changes how you edit video on a notebook, especially in Final Cut Pro X or iMovie. For the first time on a portable computer, you can view your video on the 15-inch MacBook Pro in pixel-accurate 1080p HD and see your editing workspace onscreen at the same time.
The MacBook Pro is the ultimate creative design studio. With 2560x1600 pixels on the 13-inch model and 2880x1800 pixels on the 15-inch model, the resolution of the Retina display is so high, it rivals the printed page. Reduced glare, higher contrast and a 178-degree viewing angle help make this Retina display the ideal place to see your work. High-performance graphics and processors let you render images and apply filters with incredible speed. And thanks to flash storage and super-fast 1600MHz memory, you can access and edit large-format files much faster than on a traditional notebook.
Advanced dual-core and quad-core processors provide an enormous amount of computational power. And powerful GPU technology along with the high-resolution Retina display allow you to visualise your data like never before. From 3D molecular modelling and DNA imaging to architectural renderings and structural analysis, MacBook Pro lets you do things that once were possible only on a desktop computer — anywhere the job takes you.
Take your gaming to a whole new level. Millions of pixels give you gameplay with more detail and nuance than you thought possible. Even in the most intense action games, super-fast processors and graphics give you amazing fluidity and smoothness. MacBook Pro with Retina display is so thin and light, you can play wherever you go. And with all the games available on the Mac App Store, you’ll have no trouble finding something to play.
