Apple has updated its MacBook Pro line with an option for Intel Core i9 8-core processors starting at $2799.
The 9th-generation Intel Core i9 processor is the first 8-core processor available in the product line. Mating the 8-core processor with 32GB of RAM and up to a Radeon Pro Vega 20 with 4GB GPU provides some serious horsepower. While the laptops are still limited to four USB-C/Thunderbolt ports, they continue to be touted as top-of-the-line machines for creative professionals.
Of course, all this comes at a price. The entry to 8-core horsepower starts at $2799 and ratchets up quickly as you build up to a fully decked out machine for $6549. Check it out here at B&H Photo and here on Apple.com.
