Apple Scary Fast Event – The launch of the M3 Series chips
At the event, Apple introduced us to a new dawn of technology with its latest M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max processor chips. These chips are way faster than any of their predecessors. The reason behind it is the 3-nanometer process technology, which can hold more transistors in a compact space. They also feature a next-generation GPU and a new technology called Dynamic Caching for enhanced efficiency.
As claimed by Apple, the rendering speed will be 2.5x faster than that of the M1 family of chips. Also, the CPU performance core will be 30 per cent faster and the efficiency core will be 50 per cent faster. The CPU of the M3 chip is 8-core with a 10-core GPU. The CPU of the M3 Pro chip has 12 cores, with 18 cores for graphics. In M3 Max, there are 16 main cores and 40 graphics cores. They are 80% faster than the M1 family of chips.
A new media engine is also featured with support for AV1 decode, to provide more high-quality video streaming.

The battery backup of these laptops is up to 22 hours. That’s the best in MacBook Pro family laptops. Even the most professional apps will run smoothly and without any hassle.
Apple claims that the display of these new generation MacBook Pro laptops is the best laptop display ever. The Extreme Dynamic Range (XDR) will ensure spectacular highlights, detailed shadows, and true-to-life colours. The Liquid Retina XDR display also features ProMotion and Pro reference modes.
For an enhanced user experience, these laptops consist of a 1080p camera, studio-quality three-mic array, and a six-speaker sound system. They also pack a powerful array of ports with Thunderbolt, HDMI, SDXC, headphone jack, and MagSafe. They support both WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3.
