2023 MacBook Pro M3 Max

The 2023 MacBook Pro M3 Max now rivals the 2023 Mac Pro M2 Ultra on most tasks, excepting a few tasks where the 24-core M2 Ultra can brute-force its way to a moderate advantage (24 vs 16 CPU cores).

Acoustics of the 2023 MacBook Pro M3 Max are not nice. Unless you must have a laptop, wait for the Mac Studio M3.

The feature set is as impressive as high end desktop computers:

  • Apple M3 Max 16-Core (12+4) CPU (optional 14-core 10+4)
  • Up to 128GB Unified RAM
  • Up to 8TB SSD
  • 14" 3024 x 1964 Liquid Retina XDR Screen
  • 40-Core GPU (optional 30-core)
  • 16-Core Neural Engine
  • FaceTime HD 1080p Camera
  • Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax) | Bluetooth 5.3
  • Thunderbolt 4
  • HDMI
  • MagSafe 3
  • Up to three 6K @ 60Hz display via Thunderbolt, or two 6K displays plus one 8K display at 60Hz or one 4K display at 240Hz over HDMI
  • Requires macOS Sonoma
  • Ultra-low power consumption and long battery life.

The svelte 14-inch model packs the same capabilities as the 16-inch model, but it appears that this was more of a science fair experiment rather than something tolerable...
