In October, Apple introduced an updated line of laptops MacBook Pro. In comparison with the predecessors of the novelty has received more powerful and efficient processor, improved graphics and faster SSD.

Apple Vice President explained the failure of 32 GB RAM in a MacBook Pro (2016)

what has Not changed is the RAM, which still stands at 16 GB. Vice-President of worldwide marketing, Phil Schiller, explained why the new MacBook Pro in the maximum configuration, available only 16 GB of RAM. According to him, the increase in RAM negatively affects battery life of laptop and also would entail the redesign of the motherboard, and this in turn would cause reduction of the amount of batteries.

"In MacBook Pro using 16 GB of fast LPDDR RAM, which operates at frequencies up to 2 133 MHz. To support 32 GB you would need to use the memory of type DDR, which has greater consumption. It also would entail changes in the motherboard design that would reduce the space allotted for the battery. Both of these factors would lead to the decline of autonomy," said Phil Schiller.

Phil Schiller said, that the limitation of RAM in top-end laptops is due to the time of Autonomous work. "Installing more than 16 GB of fast RAM into a MacBook Pro at this stage, would require the use of system memory, which would consume too much energy, and would be extremely inefficient for a laptop," explained Vice-President of the "Apple" of the Corporation.
