Apple claims that the 16-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Max’s High Power Mode is designed for tasks like colour grading 8K ProRes video

The presence of a “High Power Mode” was initially rumoured in late September, when code strings inside the macOS Monterey indicated the possibility of an unique operating mode that may help a Mac operate quicker at the cost of reduced battery life and increased fan noise.

Apple has announced that 16-inch MacBook Pro models with the M1 Max processor will have a “High Power Mode” that would boost performance momentarily.

Although just a rumor up until Thursday, Apple has now confirmed the existence of the feature to MacRumors. According to the site, High Power Mode will only be available on 16-inch MacBook Pro models with an M1 Max chip. In other words, 14-inch MacBook Pros and all MacBook Pro variants with M1 Pro chips won’t get it.

Code strings discovered in October by Steve Moser suggested that Apple will warn users when they enable the setting, advising them that their Mac “will optimize performance to better support resource-intensive tasks. This may result in louder fan noise.”

The feature appears to be the opposite of Low Power Mode, which is being introduced in macOS Monterey. Similar to how the mode works on iPhone, Low Power Mode on macOS cuts down on battery-intensive tasks in an effort to squeeze a bit more life out of a charge.

the feature is only available for the 16-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Max. Apple lets you configure 14″ models with the M1 Max chip, but unfortunately, this new power mode is exclusive to 16″ models, with prices starting in the ballpark of $3,099 and up.

This new ‘High Power Mode’ can come in clutch for folks who work on high-intensive projects like 4K video editing or graphics rendering, so it will be interesting to see if the feature lives up to its name.
