If you were hoping that Apple would soon update the 16in MacBook Pro with new processors you’re probably going to be disappointed to lean that the company has updated it – but only in terms of the graphics card options.
However, news that you can now choose a more powerful graphics card as an option will no doubt please many.
The new options are the AMD Radeon Pro 5600M with 8GB of HBM2 memory. If you choose this option, rather than the AMD Radeon Pro 5500M with 4GB of GDDR6 memory at point of sale it will cost you an additional £800/$700.
According to Apple’s own data, the AMD Radeon Pro 5600M should be up to 75 percent faster than the AMD Radeon Pro 5500M.
Apple has also introduced a new SSD kit for Mac Pro. This kit will enable customers to upgrade the internal storage in their Mac Pro from the original factory configuration. The kit includes two SSD modules in 1TB, 2TB, 4TB, or 8TB capacity options.
