The most compact MacBook Pro models advance to the Ice Lake generation Intel And upgraded keyboards
More and more factors are predicting that Apple is going to make one of its most significant moves in the modern era with a shift to architecture ARM And self-developed processors on personal computers as well, just like smartphones and tablets made by it - but in practice it seems that the close cooperation with Intel Continues to work normally, with the announcement of another update for the PCsMacbook Pro 13 successful.
The small version of the MacBook Pro 2020 will feature a pair of quad-core processors Intel The 10-inch Ice Lake section, with an enlarged 28-watt power casing and frequencies that cannot be found in any other mobile device: Core i5-1038NG7 with base frequency of 2GHz and maximum turbo frequency of 3.8GHz andCore i7-1068NG7 with 2.3GHz base frequency and even higher turbo frequency of up to 4.1GHz.
These laptops will be offered for sale at a starting price of $ 1,800, with a 13-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 2,560 × 1,600 pixels, fast LPDDR4X memory of 3,733MHz with a capacity of 16GB, NVMe drives with volumes between 512GB and 4TB (plus a psychedelic cost of $ 1,200 ) Which reach continuous transfer speeds of up to 3GBps, a 58 watt-hour battery that should be sufficient for ten hours of work, 802.11ac dual-channel Wi-Fi connectivity, four connections Thunderbolt 3 for all required uses - and Magic Keyboard with traditional 'scissor' mechanisms (Scissor Switch, instead of 'butterfly' mechanisms which have the right to very mixed reactions from the previous generation users) and with a reduced Touch Bar line at the top.
