References to new AMD GPUs for Macs

References to new AMD GPUs point to the possible arrival of upgraded Macs

Codes found in Apple’s beta operating systems have always been a good indication of what may be released by the company in the not too distant future, isn’t it? So get ready, because the newest discovery of hackers linked to the community Hackintosh it’s good for anyone who hopes to see new Macs being introduced by Tim Cook and his gang.

References to new AMD GPUs for Macs

The image above, shared on the website tonymacx86.com, shows references to three possible new GPUs that are still unknown: Polaris 10, Polaris 12 and Vega 10. Speculation has started, of course.

The Polaris 10 would be the 10XT2, an evolution of the Polaris 10 series currently found on iMacs with Retina display; Polaris 12 was, until now, unknown to the public (as a reference, the GPUs currently used in the new MacBooks Pro with Touch Bar are part of the Polaris 11 series); some details of the Vega 10 series are already known (it will, for example, be based on AMD’s GCN architecture and is also known as “Fury Pro”).

Everything indicates that Vega 10 will be aimed at more powerful desktop machines, such as the Mac Pro, since it has power of 12 teraflops, 16GB of memory and a thermal profile of 230W.

It’s past time to see new iMacs, Macs mini and Macs Pro being released, everyone knows that. These macOS Sierra 10.12.2 references, however, are a light at the end of the tunnel for anyone who was already discredited in relation to Apple’s claims with its line of computers. We’ll see what’s coming up in early 2017.
