Apple’s new MacBook Pro 16 is revealed with AMD 6700M graphics card
According to foreign media NoteBookCheck, the Bootcamp code revealed that Apple plans to launch a new 16-inch MacBook Pro notebook computer, but it may not be equipped with an M1 chip. According to the news broke @TheGalox_, AMD will cooperate with Apple to launch the RDNA 2 architecture mobile GPU.
According to reports, Apple’s new MacBook Pro 16 may be the first mobile version of AMD RX 6700 or RX 6700XT graphics cards, based on AMD’s Navi 22 GPU .
Naijatechnews has learned that before that, there had been whistle-blowers that Apple would release the Intel version of the MacBook Pro 16 in the form of a press release in December. The new MacBook Pro 16 is likely to use the 10th generation mobile standard Core + Radeon Pro 6000 M graphics card combination. This shows that Apple may temporarily be unable to replace AMD in terms of high-performance graphics cards.
In terms of performance, the 10th generation mobile standard core has not improved much compared to the previous generation. It is still 14nm and the old architecture, with a maximum of 8 cores and 16 threads. In terms of GPU, the AMD 6000 series has once again improved its energy efficiency ratio by 50% compared to the previous generation, which is particularly beneficial for the MacBook Pro 16 with a single heat pipe.
As far as AMD is concerned, the first Radeon Pro 6000M graphics card issued by Apple in December and then officially released at CES in January is also very reasonable.
