It was not very much in the news but throughout the year it was heard that Apple is working on a Haswell CPU powered MacBook Pro. Experts are of the view that new Macbook pro release date will be in September. One of the reasons why experts are predicting the coming of new MacBook Pro is because retailers are trying to clear their remaining stocks in order to accommodate new inventory.
Some experts are assuming that the new MacBook Pro is going to be revealed on the same day when new editions of iPhone namely the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C is going to be unleashed. The most recent edition of MacBook Pro will be powered with all the new fourth generation CPU called Haswell processors from Intel.
The Haswell CPUs were introduced during the WWDC 2013 that was held earlier this year. The CPU was shown functioning on MacBook Air. The major feature of the new Haswell processor is that it enhances the performance of the system by churning out longer battery life. When the MacBook Air powered Haswell CPU was shown, experts came to know how Haswell CPUs help in saving power considerably.
Initial performance tests have shown that Haswell does help in producing longer battery life. If the battery of a laptop runs longer, users will not need to charge their systems more frequently. This will eventually help in increasing productivity. When the MacBook Air’s original CPU was replaced by Haswell, reports showed that the 13inch version of MacBook Air lasted five more hours. On the other hand, the 11inch MacBook Air could run four more hours.
Haswell MacBook Pro is said to be coming with impressive graphics. Even for GPU, the Cupertino company is relying on Intel. The MacBook Pro will come l;oaded with Iris Pro 5200 GPU from Intel. The Iris Pro GPU is Intel’s premium GPU iteration. The new GPU from Intel will compete with the GPU from AMD and Nvidia. Apple has not announced anything on the hard disk capacity. It has not revealed anything on the non-Retina version of MacBook Pro.
By the way, MacBook users had never faced battery life issues but still the Haswell processor will enhance the performance of the system. As of now, we can find major retailes like B&H and Amazon offering attractive deals on iMac. Surely this is an attempt from Apple to liquidate the existing models and to make way for the newer iMac.
Tech gurus are also feeling that if it takes around two months for new Apple MacBook Pro to arrive, we will also see arrival of 21inch and 27inch models of the MacBook Pro very soon. Also when the new MacBook Pro arrives, it will also bring along a MacBook Pro with Retina Display.
During the WWDC event of this year, Apple had announced on OS X Mavericks which is currently on the sixth version. The new MacBook Pro is going to run the new OS X Mavericks which will come with new features like multiple monitor support, iBooks, Maps, iCloud Keychain and many more.
