In yet another movement proving that he thought a lot about professionals when developing the new 16-inch MacBook Pro, Apple revealed in a support article that the machine now has a specific adjustment for the refresh rate (refresh rate) of the screen.
The new option, obviously located in System Preferences Monitorsallows advanced users to change (temporarily) the 60Hz standard rate to 59.94Hz, 50Hz, 48Hz or 47.95Hz.
The biggest beneficiaries of this feature will be video editors, who can now set the screen rate according to the video frame rate they are editing. Apple advises that the rate set there is exactly twice the video frame rate ie if you are editing a material at 24 frames per second you should change the screen rate to 48Hz.
To avoid confusion among users who do not need such a feature, it is not visible by default in this preferences screen. To view the new menu, I need to click the "Resized" option with the key pressed.
After the video editing work is completed, Apple recommends that users change the setting back to the 60Hz default.
External monitor support
In another support article, Apple also details support for the 16 ? MacBook Pro with external displays.
According to the company, it will be possible to connect up to four 4K monitors or two 5K / 6K monitors using the notebook's four Thunderbolt 3 ports. Another possibility is to connect a 5K monitor and up to three 4K.
What's New in Mac Pro
Taking this opportunity, it is worth covering here two different Mac Pro news from what was announced in the original presentation of the machine (last June).
When it hits the market next month, the new Mac Pro can now be configured with up to SSDs. 8TB as you can do with the 16 ? MacBook Pro. Obviously, this is not cheap at all. ?
Also, instead of three, the new Mac Pro now supports up to six(!) streams Video ProRes in 8K Resolution. A little incredible.
