Apple presented yesterday at the “One More Thing” event the new generation of Mac, a nine generation that comes to market with Apple’s M1 processors, leaving Intel aside for the first time in the last 15 years and adding fanointings that until now were not available.
Of the three teams that were presented yesterday: MacBook Air, Mac Mini and 13-inch MacBook Pro, the latter two debut compatibility with 6K screens, as we can read in MacRumors. The previous generation of both models it only supported up to 5K output.
Oddly enough, the MacBook Air that Apple renewed earlier this year was already capable of moving 6K displays, a feature that was not available on either the Mac Mini or the MacBook Pro. In this way, Apple is expanding the range of Macs. what offer support for higher resolution displays.
In addition to the MacBook Air 2020 and the new Mac Mini and MacBook Pro with Apple’s M1 processor, within the Mac range we can find other older models that already offered 6K support like the 2018 MacBook Pros, the 2019 iMac and iMac Pro …
Apple’s new M1 processors, according to the company during the presentation, offer a 3x faster CPU performance and up to 5x faster GPU performance. In addition, another of the strengths of this new generation and that was already assumed, is the battery life, which in the Pro model can reach up to 20 hours.
