Apple unveiled its latest M3 chip powered MacBook Air on Monday.

The new MacBook Air is claimed to offer a 60% increase in speed compared to the M1 chip powered models and 13 times faster performance than the fastest Intel-based MacBook Air.

The laptop incorporates a more efficient Neural Engine. Available in midnight, starlight, silver, and space grey, the new MacBook Air comes in both 13- and 15-inch models. It features a Liquid Retina display, support for up to two external displays, MagSafe charging, and Wi-Fi 6E for faster download speeds. The Magic Keyboard with Touch ID, top-notch camera, and immersive sound system add to the overall appeal.

Built with cutting-edge 3-nanometer technology, the M3 chip packs an 8-core CPU, up to a 10-core GPU, and support for up to 24GB of unified memory. The M3’s next-generation GPU enables hardware-accelerated mesh shading and ray tracing, elevating gaming experiences with more accurate lighting, reflections, and shadows.
