|Processor Speed:||2.6 GHz||Processor Type:||Core i7 (I7-9750H)|
|Details:||This model is powered by a 14 nm, 64-bit “Ninth Generation” Intel Mobile Core i7 “Coffee Lake” (I7-9750H) processor which includes six independent processor “cores” on a single silicon chip. Each core has a dedicated 256k level 2 cache, shares 12 MB of level 3 cache, and has an integrated memory controller (dual channel).
This system also supports “Turbo Boost 2.0” — which “automatically increases the speed of the active cores” to improve performance when needed (up to 4.5 GHz for this model) — and “Hyper Threading” — which allows the system to recognize twelve total “cores” or “threads” (six real and six virtual).
Additionally, this MacBook Pro has a secondary “T2” processor for “enhanced security,” which includes secure boot and encrypted storage capabilities as well as enhanced image processing.
