Apple has updated its MacBook Pro with 8th- and 9th-generation Intel Core processors, bringing eight cores to the computer and making it the fastest Mac ever.

Starting at Rs 1,59,900 and Rs 1, 99,900 respectively, the updated 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and 15-inch MacBook Pro will be available through Apple Authorised Resellers later this week in India, the company wrote in a blog-post on Tuesday.

This is the first time the iPhone-maker has added eight cores to MacBook Pros to allow the devices to perform twice faster than a quad-core MacBook Pro and 40 % better than a 6-core MacBook Pro.

“We’re constantly amazed at what our customers do with their MacBook Pro and now with 8-core processors, we can’t wait to get it into our customer’s hands to see what they do next,” said Tom Boger, Senior Director of Mac Product Marketing, Apple.

The 15-inch MacBook Pro now features faster 6- and 8-core Intel Core processors, while the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar features faster quad-core processors.

These new processors are combined with powerful graphics and Retina display, super-fast SSDs, Apple T2 Security Chip, all-day battery life and macOS.

“Music producers can play back massive multi-track projects, 3D designers can render scenes up to two times faster, photographers can apply complex edits and filters up to 75 % faster in Photoshop, developers can compile code up to 65 % faster in Xcode,” the post added.
