Apple’s New MacBook Pros Goes Polaris

Apple has been an “Nvidia free” zone for ages and now it seems that AMD has scored another MacBook Pro 15 design win with its Polaris based Radeon Pro 400 series GPUs.  The 13 inch MacBook Pro still relies on its Intel integrated graphics and both 13 and 15 inch MacBooks use Skylake processors rather than Kaby Lake. Kaby Lake offers better multimedia and encoding performance and only marginal CPU performance improvements over Skylake. AMD Radeon Pro 400 has two different GPUs in its...

These surprising results, which were published in the late 1990s, strongly...
