The processor, graphics, all-flash architecture, memory, and display in the 15‑inch MacBook Pro give you unprecedented mobile video editing capabilities. Super-responsive flash storage delivers up to 16 streams of 1080p ProRes content for multicam editing in Final Cut Pro X,1 while the quad-core processors on the 15‑inch MacBook Pro decode multiple streams of video, and a powerful GPU renders millions of pixels onto the screen. You can even play 10 streams of 1080p ProRes picture-in-picture video, right from the internal storage on your 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display.1
Having four times the pixels of a standard display makes video so sharp, so clear, and so lifelike, your shots may look even better than you remember. And it changes how you edit on a notebook because you can view your video on the 15-inch MacBook Pro in pixel-accurate 1080p HD and see your editing workspace onscreen at the same time. And when you’re applying graphics-intensive effects in Final Cut Pro X like optical flow-based slow motion and full-resolution 3D titles, you’ll appreciate having a powerful AMD GPU at your disposal.
