Although the Apple event held today was principally concentrated on Apple’s new MacBook Air, Apple also unostentatiously published an update to its MacBook Pro lineup, which will accommodate AMD’s Radeon Pro Vega graphics chips for the first time next month. Apple declares that these new graphics chips will result in an up to 60 percent increase to performance over the Radeon Pro 560X (the greatest GPU you could previously get in a MacBook Pro), across video editing, 3D design, and rendering tasks.\
AMD’s Vega graphics cards were originally released for desktops last year and have already been incorporated as an option in Apple’s iMac Pros, but this is the first time they’ve found their way into laptops. AMD states the brand-new Radeon Pro Vega 20 and Pro Vega 16 will allow “cool and quiet operation,” which conceivably implies they won’t consume too much of your charge; the desktop Vega chips had a bit of a power-hungry characteristic. If you don’t want to purchase one of the new MacBooks equipped with internal Vega graphics, you can also utilize an external GPU enclosure to connect a desktop AMD graphics card to your existing laptop. Apple has a list of external GPU-compatible cards on its site, and it comprises all Vega models.
You’ll be able to grasp a 15-inch MacBook Pro emphasizing either the Radeon Pro Vega 20 or Radeon Pro Vega 16 commencing on November 14th at a price that’s yet to be revealed.
