The news: Apple just updated their online store with a higher-end GPU for 16-inch MacBook Pro, 0% financing for more products with Apple Card and a SSD upgrade kit for Mac Pro.
- The 16-inch MacBook Pro has gained the AMD Radeon Pro 5600M with 8GB of HBM2 memory
- “75 percent faster performance than the 5500M when configured with 4GB of GDDR6,” per The Verge
- Mac Pro SSD upgrade kits configured up to 8TB will be available later today
- Apple Card 0% financing (6 or 12-month, depending on which product) is now available
Our take: With a big WWDC planned for a week from now, Apple likely wanted to push some smaller updates out prior to the fanfare. That being said, the GPU update on MacBook Pro seems significant, and I look forward to seeing how close to 75% faster it actually is.
