The MacBook Pro “Core i5” 1.4 13-Inch (2019, Touch Bar, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports) is powered by a 14 nm, 8th Generation “Coffee Lake” 4-core1.4 GHz Intel “Core i5” processor (I5-8257U), with four independent processor “cores” on a single silicon chip.
The new CPU also offers turbo-boost up to 3.9 GHz for short bursts of additional performance, beating the 3.6 GHz maximum for the previous generation MacBook Pro.
Based on headline numbers alone, this seems like a downgrade but it’s important to note that not only are the eighth-generation chips more efficient, it is also a quad-core processor whereas the previous-generation was only a dual-core CPU.
128 MB of eDRAM embedded on the processor die, and a shared 6 MB level 3 cache. This notebook also packs 8 GB of onboard 2133 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM and comes with 128 GB of flash storage, and an integrated Intel Iris Plus Graphics 645 graphics processor that shares memory with the system.
Externally, this notebook has an integrated 720p FaceTime HD webcam, a revised “third generation” butterfly mechanism keyboard with an integrated “Touch Bar” with a touch-sensitive control that adapts for different applications and provides Touch ID login support in lieu of traditional function keys, and a gigantic “Force Touch” trackpad.
Additionally, it has a high-resolution LED-backlit 13.3″ widescreen 2560×1600 (227 ppi, 500 nits) “Retina” display with True Tone technology, and a integrated battery that provides an Apple estimated 10 hours of runtime.
Connectivity includes 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, two “Thunderbolt 3” ports (USB-C connector), and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Compared to its much older predecessor, this model has a faster processor, architecture, and graphics processor in addition to a tweaked butterfly keyboard said to use different materials and be less error prone. It also gains the aforementioned T2 security chip, Touch ID, and Touch Bar.
