Revealed during Apple’s iPad Pro announcement film, the popular video editing program DaVinci Resolve is officially making it onto the iPad Pro thanks to the M2 Apple Silicon chip.
Apple briefly mentioned in their newsroom post and during the iPad Pro announcement film that DaVinci Resolve will be coming soon to the iPad Pro. “The breakthrough performance of M2 enhances an incredible selection of pro apps available on iPad, including DaVinci Resolve, Adobe Photoshop, Affinity Publisher 2 iPad, Octane X, uMake, and more,” says Apple.
“iPad Pro’s blazing performance takes your favorite apps further than ever. And powerful new apps are coming to iPad as well. DaVinci Resolve for iPad for color correction, editing, and visual effects,” said Apple in the announcement video. Apple didn’t specify when the app will be available to download, but we can expect it sometime later this year.
The new iPad Pro is powered by an M2 Apple Silicon chip that is fifteen percent faster than M1 in computing power and a staggering 35 percent faster in graphics processing. “M2 features an 8-core CPU — up to 15 percent faster than M1 — with advancements in both performance and efficiency cores, and a 10-core GPU, delivering up to 35 percent faster graphics performance for the most demanding users. Combined with the CPU and GPU, the 16-core Neural Engine can process 15.8 trillion operations per second — 40 percent more than M1 — making iPad Pro even more powerful when handling machine learning tasks. The M2 chip also features 100GB/s of unified memory bandwidth — 50 percent more than M1 — and supports up to 16GB of fast unified memory, making multitasking and working with large assets even more fluid,” said Apple.
The new iPad Pro with M2 Apple Silicon will retail for $799 for the 11-inch model and $1,099 for the 12.9-inch model. Cellular models start at $999 and $1,299, respectively.
