The M1 Max helps create the most demanding graphics workflows. M1 Pro and M1 Max introduce a system-on-a-chip (soc) architecture to pro systems for the first time and the chips feature fast unified memory, industry-leading performance per watt, and incredible power efficiency, with increased memory bandwidth and capacity.

M1 Pro Processor offers up to 200GB/s of memory bandwidth with support for up to 32 GB of unified memory. M1 max delivers up to 400 GB/s of memory bandwidth – 2x that of M1 pro and 6x that’s of M1 chipsets.

Apple Macbook Pro 2021 Battery

The 14-inch Mackbook pro comes with better battery life than the older generation. This time the machine is much more powerful than its predecessor so it needs more juice for better output results.

Apple claims that the 14-inch Macbook pro lasts for 17 hours straight when playing fullscreen videos. But after a few test runs the result is very near to the real numbers. the result we got was around 15 hours and 45 mins which is very impressive.

This jump in battery life is what was expected from such a powerful machine as it will be used by content creators for better and faster outputs. Apple has obviously worked hard to improve the efficiency of their new chipsets, the M1 pro, and the M11 Max.

The 16-inch Macbook Pro has got a bigger battery and apple says that it lasts 14 hours after a single charge but we tested it as well and we got better results it lasted more than 14 hrs and this shows how much work has been done by Apple to improve their battery life for the lineup of Macbook’s. Thus a powerful workstation needs a bigger battery for better performance and experience.
