Apple Adds New GPU Option To The 16-Inch MacBook Pro And Offers SSD Upgrade Kit For Mac Pro
Apple today offered a couple of new options to those buying its most expensive Macs. Things started out with the arrival of a new, high-end GPU option for the 16-inch MacBook Pro and went on to a new SSD upgrade kit for those using a new Mac Pro.
Starting out with the GPU, buyers of new 16-inch MacBook Pros can opt for a new AMD Radeon Pro 5600M GPU as an $800 option when speccing out their new notebook.
It comes with 8GB of HBM2 RAM and should be nice and quick. In fact, Apple says it’s around 75% faster than the Radeon Pro 5500M option. So keep that in mind if you’re planning your next purchase.
As for Mac Pro buyers, there’s now an option for them to add new SSD capacity themselves in the form of a new upgrade kit.
Options come 1TB, 2TB, 4TB, and 8TB configurations and will give Mac Pro users the chance to add their own super-fast storage without having to head into an Apple Store or authorized repair center. The kits aren’t available for purchase just yet, but we’re told that they’ll be hitting the store at some point today.
Who knows, maybe Apple is holding them back to avoid competing with today’s Fortnite Doomsday event!
