Apple updated MacBook Pro with faster 8th- and 9th-generation Intel Core processors, bringing eight cores to MacBook Pro for the first time. MacBook Pro now delivers two times faster performance than a quad-core MacBook Pro and 40 percent more performance than a 6-core MacBook Pro, making it the fastest Mac notebook ever.1 These new processors, combined with powerful graphics, the brilliant and colorful Retina display, super-fast SSDs, the Apple T2 Security Chip, all-day battery life and macOS, make MacBook Pro the world’s best pro notebook.
It's not a Ryzen chip.

Hi,
Sounds like a 9900k with hyper threading off.

Well that sounds expensive ;)

I wonder how it's going to throttle to manage all that heat...

That's the 9700K.

Getting 6 cores to work well with a limited TDP window is difficult enough. Adding another 2 cores is only going to make for more heat. This thing must be a single giant HSF with a keyboard glued to the top.

Word is they're already working on the firmware update to fix it.

Hope all the glue doesn't melt.

Blast furnace. Zen 2 is going to obliterate it. Reminds me of Prescott days.

Still no touch screen.

It's going to make the heat sink bigger :thumb:

Nah man, you don't need anything like a proper cooling solution, that's for chumps. You just keep making the chip run slower until it no....longer....thr.. Wait, what does throttling mean again?
