The M1 chip makes MacBook Pro outrageously fast and powerful. Its 8-core CPU rips through complex workflows and heavy workloads, with up to 2.8x faster processing performance than the previous generation – all with unbelievable energy efficiency.
Four efficiency cores
Four efficiency cores deliver outstanding performance for everyday tasks using just a tenth of the power. These e-cores are the most efficient place to run lightweight tasks, allowing the performance cores to tackle the most demanding workloads.
Runs a tight chip. The M1 chip brings the superfast unified memory. This single pool of high-bandwidth, low-latency memory allows apps to share data between the CPU, GPU, and Neural Engine efficiently – so everything you do is fast and fluid.
Secure Enclave coprocessor
Provides a silicon-level foundation for critical security features like Touch ID and Apple Pay – and with M1, it’s faster than ever.
Dedicated AES storage encryption engine
Keeps encryption keys safe while delivering incredible performance for encrypted storage and data protection.
Secure boot and runtime security features
Ensures that only trusted Apple software loads at startup and helps protect macOS while running.
Magic Keyboard lets you do everything faster and more efficiently. The refined scissor mechanism delivers a responsive, comfortable, and quiet typing experience. And Touch ID provides fast, easy authentication for secure logins and purchases.
A touch on the sensor instantly unlocks your Mac, and a press locks it. Use your fingerprint to rent movies, buy apps, or access things like locked documents or system settings without having to reenter your password. And when you shop online with Apple Pay, Touch ID automatically fills in your shipping and billing information without sharing your card details.
