Wait for Better Processors and Graphics
Wait if you want a MacBook Pro that is better at processing video and if you need a machine that is faster at compressing or decompressing files.
The high-end 2020 MacBook Pro 13 comes with a 10th Gen Intel Core i processor and the 16-inch MacBook Pro uses a 9th Gen Intel Core i processor. If you are looking for more power, you may want to hold off for the 2020 MacBook Pro that is still coming.
While the average day to day tasks on your computer will likely feel about the same as the current models, the 2020 MacBook Pro should process video faster and do a better job of quickly compressing and decompressing files.
The graphics card that comes with these processors already shows at least a 50% boost in real-world graphics performance according to Macworld. This also means that you will be able to use these with the new Pro Display XDR and it should support up to three 4K displays at 120hz, two 5K displays at 60hz, or a single 8K display at 30 Hz.
If you decide to get an Apple processor-powered MacBook Pro that is likely coming this week, you can expect faster performance, longer battery life and potentially better graphics performance, but you will want to wait and see what reviews say.
