16-inch MacBook Pro

How does the new 16-inch MacBook Pro compare with its predecessor?

13th November 2019 | posted by David Acland

Some of you may be wondering what you get with the new 16-inch MacBook Pro, other than an extra 0.6 inch and the re-introduction of an escape key!  Below is a quick reference chart showing the difference with the outgoing 15-inch…

15-Inch, 2019 16-inch 2019
Processors 2.6GHz 6-core or 2.3GHz 8-core 2.6GHz 6-core or 2.3GHz 8-core
Memory 16 or 32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4 16, 32 or 64GB 2666MHz DDR4
Graphics AMD Radeon Pro 555X, 560X or Radeon Pro Vega 16, or Vega 20, all with 4GB GDDR5 memory AMD Radeon Pro 5500M with 4GB or 8GB of GDDR6 memory
Storage 256GB, 512 GB, 1, 2, or 4 TB SSD 512 GB, 1, 2, or 4  or 8TB SSD
Display size 15.4-inch (diagonal) 16‑inch (diagonal)
Maximum resolution 2880 by 1800 3072×1920

As you can see, other than the CPU, most areas of the hardware have been improved, plus you get the extra bit of screen space!

What if you max it out?

Just for fun, we’ve tried totally maxing out a new 16-inch MacBook Pro.  For a measly £5,769, here’s what we ended up with:

  • 2.4GHz 8-core 9th-generation Intel Core i9 processor
  • 64GB 2666MHz DDR4 memory
  • AMD Radeon Pro 5500M with 8GB of GDDR6 memory
  • 8TB SSD storage
