Both 13- and 15-inch models - with their signature Touch Bar touchscreen menu atop its keyboard - now have 8th-generation Intel Core processors, giving up to 70 and 50 per cent faster performance, respectively. The Core i7 models are clocked at 2.7 (4.5GHz with Turbo Boost) while the integrated Iris Plus 655 graphics receives a bump to 128MB eDRAM - double the amount from the previous models.

The 2018 MacBook Pro 13-inch starts at $1,799 and the 15-inch model at $2,399. The 13-inch model goes up to 16GB of memory and 2TB of SSD storage.

The new machines were first announced on Thursday, with online ordering available that day. Apple even has a patent for the very same technology behind its third-generation keyboard.

Also arriving to the new MacBook Pro models are True Tone technology, a feature that launched on the iPad Pro line that measures ambient color balance and makes adjustments to the screen so that colors are accurately shown. Apple is also including a T2 chip on the device that's capable of enabling the "Hey Siri" command for the first time ever on a Mac, so you no longer have to use the keyboard to access the personal assistant on your Mac.

All MacBook Pro new generation mounted display TrueTone, which changes the white balance depending on the lighting type, the sensor of Touch ID and touch panel touch Bar.

Today Blackmagic Design announced the release of a new eGPU for MacBook Pro computers. Arguably the most polarizing among these tweaks is the butterfly keyboard-the 2015 MacBook Pro predates that mechanism, making its traditional keyboard a preferred alternative for many users. The GPU that comes with the default configuration is the AMD Radeon Pro 550X with 4GB GDDR5, and with AED 420, you will be able to upgrade to the faster Radeon Pro 560X GPU. The 15-inch MacBook Pro starts at $2,399 for the Core i7 variant while the Core i9 will set you back at least $2,799. Presumably all of them, because Apple says both models can connect to up to four external GPUs, or two 5K displays.
