Macbook Pro 14 (M3) Overview:
All new M3 Gang
The key highlight of the new Macbook Pro is the new M3 lineup of chips. Comprising of three silicons— M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max, Apple has gone with energy-efficient 3-nanometer tech. This 14-inch guy comes with M3 and M3 Pro chipsets under the hood.
The vanilla M3 chip is an 8-core CPU with a 10-core GPU. Likewise, the M3 Pro is available in two variants: 11-core CPU, 14-core GPU, 18 GB unified memory, and 512 GB SSD storage; and 12-core CPU, 18-core GPU, 18 GB unified memory, and 1 TB SSD storage.
The top-of-the-line M3 Max gains more horsepower with a 14-core CPU, 30-core GPU, 36GB of unified memory, and 1TB of SSD storage. Meanwhile, the RAM is upgradeable up to 24GB, 36GB, and 128GB for the M3, M3 Pro and M3 Max respectively. The storage on the other hand is configurable up to 8TB for all three variants.
Besides the CPU performance, the GPU part gets a major buff such as hardware-accelerated ray tracing and mesh shading, first time ever on Apple silicon. A sigh of relief for some gaming finally! Moreover, the Dynamic Caching on the new M3 chips enables the efficient allocation of RAM required for the GPU.
