With the release of the M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max processing chips at Apple’s Scary Fast Halloween event earlier today, the redesigned MacBook Pro M3 stole the show, while the 24-inch iMac also gets updated with the M3 range.

The specs are divided into 3 different options, according to the type of chip you select. In the 14-inch, the MacBook Pro goes up to a 16‑core CPU, and a 40‑core GPU, with a 16‑core Neural Engine in the M3 Max configuration.

This includes a maximum of 128GB of unified memory and 8TB of internal SSD storage. Meanwhile, connectivity includes three Thunderbolt 4 ports, an HDMI port, an SDXC card slot, a headphone jack, and a MagSafe 3 port for the bundled 96W USB-C adapter.

The 16-inch version offers the same outrageous specs, except you have a more powerful 140W USB-C power adapter. The new MacBook Pros can give you up to 22 hours of battery time, and don’t run on lower resources when they aren’t plugged in.

Pricing and availability:

The MacBook Pro is now available for preorder directly from Apple, arriving next week, starting at $1,599.

Also announced at the event was the 24-inch iMac update that will now be available with M3 chip configurations starting at $1,299.

    Recent Apple release of the 3nm M3 chip with a 40-core CPU will definitely delivers more visible power vs M2 generation and is at the M2 Ultra level of performance. This is a desktop power in a laptop, Apple did it again! With the M3 chip with enhanced GPU/CPU performance, Apple has entered gaming space, and the newer generation Macs will have much better gaming benchmark scores and the overall FPS rates and performance vs prior gen M2 and M1 chips and even v. M3 Macs will close gaming performance gaps vs Windows OS based platforms with RTX 4000 series gaming graphics cards. The M2 generation had already made substantial progress in this regard with the gamers, so M3 with 3nm chip infrastructure has again raised the bar very high.
    There are other performance improvements too that the M3 offers if you are going to perform GPU-demanding tasks such as 3D graphic rendering or modelling, video and audio production, etc. Here too the M3 Max 3nm process is offering higher performance and lower power draw versus N5. Clearly Apple has delivered something out of this world… And wait until M3 Ultra comes out – this will seal the deal!
