So based on what we know about Apple’s new MacBook Pros so far, on paper, the M1 Max chipset will be quite a beast in terms of CPU and GPU performance. Given that we’ve seen and heard many reviews of people using the current M1s for work like video editing and processing, we imagine that the M1 Pro and M1 Max chipsets will be capable of doing an even better job.

However, in case you need that extra boost of power, you might be interested to hear that Apple is actually introducing a High Power Mode specifically for the M1 Max 16-inch MacBook Pro.

If this sounds familiar, it is because not too long ago, there were references found in the macOS Monterey beta for a High Power Mode, and now MacRumors has confirmed with Apple that the feature does exist.

Basically what this does is that it will allow your MacBook Pro to work at a higher intensity for sustained workloads, so if you need the chipset to work overtime, maybe for rendering purposes, then having High Power Mode enabled will help with that process.

This is actually the opposite to Apple’s Low Power Mode that basically decreases the performance of the M1 chipset to preserve battery life. Keep in mind that this is only for the 16-inch MacBook Pro that uses the M1 Max chipset, and that the 14-inch model and other configurations that use the M1 Pro will not have this feature.
