MacBooks Pro to Get AMD Radeon Pro Vega Graphics Option

At the end of your press release about the new MacBooks Air, released in today’s keynote, Apple also brought us a small but important new feature for MacBooks Pro.

Starting in the middle of next month, Apple will offer an extra configuration taking graphics Radeon Pro Vega (from AMD) to the MacBook Pro for the first time.

These new graphics options provide up to 60% higher performance for those who demand a lot of video editing, 3D design and rendering.

For now, we don’t know how much the upgrade will cost, but the certainty is that it won’t be cheap. Two options will be offered: Radeon Pro Vega 16 or Radeon Pro Vega 20, both with 4GB of HBM2 memory.

On a related note, Blackmagic eGPU Pro is being updated with the Radeon RX Vega 56 graphics card (which has 8GB of HBM2 memory).

It will cost $ 1,200 out there, so you can get a sense of what the thing is really for demanding professionals.

The availability forecast is for the end of November.
