Under the hood, there’s an Intel Core i9 processor, the most efficient processor MacBook offers, reinforced by 2,666MHz DDR4 memory. It allows you to simultaneously work on projects in huge programs like, Photoshop, InDesign, or Final Cut Pro, while browsing many tabs — glitch-free. A new cooling system doubles down on this peace of mind. Add to this the AMD Radeon Pro 500M series graphics card and you’ve got a superhighway to beautiful video and imagery, and of course, the capacity to manipulate that imagery at the highest level.
