Apple calls the MacBook Pro its most powerful Mac ever. The 13-inch model offers a dual-core Intel Core i5/i7 processor with 2133MHz memory and Iris Graphics with 64MB eDRAM (2x faster than the prior 13-inch MacBook Pro). The company claims it brings 103% faster gaming speeds, 76% faster video editing, and 76% faster 3D graphics.

On the 15-inch side, Apple offers the quad-core Intel Core i7 standard, along with the Radeon Pro graphics processor, which uses the Polaris Architecture and includes 4GB VRAM and 2.3x faster graphics than the previous version of the 15-inch MacBook Pro. You can also get a solid-state hard drive with up to 2TB of storage, which Apple claims is up to 50% faster than previous models. Overall, the company boasts 130% faster 3D graphics, 60% faster gaming speeds, and 57% faster video editing.
