M1 Pro features up to 10 CPU cores and up to 16 GPU cores, coupled with 200GB/s of memory bandwidth and as much as 32GB of unified memory. It includes a 16-core Neural Engine and a media engine with H.264 and HEVC support and ProRes encode and decode.
M1 Pro can easily run multiple pro applications at the same time. It is equally capable of handling CPU-intensive tasks like photo editing and compiling code and GPU-driven tasks like 3D visualisations and processing video effects. The Neural Engine can speed through machine learning work, while the dedicated media engine lets you play back up to 20 streams of 4K ProRes 422 video. And M1 Pro supports up to two external displays.
M1 Max is even more powerful than M1 Pro. It features a 10-core CPU and up to 32 GPU cores, while the memory bandwidth jumps to 400GB/s -- double that of M1 Pro. It includes a 16-core Neural Engine and an even more advanced media engine with H.264 and HEVC support and ProRes encode and decode with greater playback capabilities.
M1 Max also lets you configure your MacBook Pro with as much as 64GB of unified memory. This can dramatically improve performance, especially when you're working with very large files such as augmented reality models, music scores with large virtual instrument libraries, or 8K video timelines.
With its additional GPU power, M1 Max is designed for graphics-intensive workflows like multicam video editing or rendering complex 3D scenes. Its powerful media engine lets you play back up to 7 streams of 8K ProRes 422 video. And M1 Max supports up to four external displays.
