With its MacBook Pro lineup tightly linked to Intel’s chip launch routine, Apple will be happied to discover that the chip maker has actually introduced an update to its Haswell line of CPUs.

The now popular 4th-gen Intel Haswell CPUs were originally launched back in June 2013. Retina MacBook Pros were last updated in autumn 2013.

The upgraded chips, which cover the i5 and i7 households of silicon, view the variety obtain a 200MHz rate bump for each alreadying existing chip, with the low-end offering now being 2.2 GHz for Core i7 with the high-end peaking at 3.0 GHz.

Clockspeed for Core i5 now ranges between 2.6-2.9 GHz. Apple presently offers the old 2.0 GHz chip in its base 13-inch non-retina MacBook Pro, and a high-end 2.6 GHz component in the built-to-order 15-inch retina version. All the Pro versions ought to view good rate bumps this fall as part of the newly updated Haswell schedule.


Apple revitalized its MacBook Air lineup when Intel updated its Haswell chips previously this year, and it’s expected that it will certainly do a similar refresh for the MacBook Pro design’s i5 and i7 chips. Intel’s Broadwell family of CPUs are expected to inevitably locate a new home in an updated MacBook Air when the silicon is prepared, with the report being that Apple will hope to ditch all internal followers many thanks to the new CPU’s power efficiencies.

Each brand-new renewed line coming out of Intel will certainly indicate chips that create less warmth and require less power – – something that notebook computers are constantly seeking. Longer long-term electric batteries and quieter fans are constantly a plus for us, and if Apple can do away with fans totally, then we’re absolutely down with that.
