If for some reason the top-tier 16-inch MacBook Pro with AMD Radeon Pro 5500M onboard wasn’t good enough for your creative workflow on the go, you can now pick an AMD Radeon Pro 5600M with 8GB of specialized HBM2 high bandwidth memory instead to get even more power and efficiency right off the bat.
Apple has just added this new option, thus turning it’s most powerful flagship notebook into an even more capable mobile workstation.
With this new configuration, the already maxed-out 16-inch MacBook Pro should theoretically provide a 75% performance boost over the model with the AMD Radeon 5500M with 4GB of GDDR6.
Keep in mind, though, that this slight upgrade will set you back an additional $600 (ouch) over the previous top tier model ending up at $6,699. But if you are predominantly working on complex, system-intensive VFX projects or 3D rendering, you might want to consider this as a viable option regardless of the extra cost.
Additionally, the company has released a new SSD upgrade kit for the owners of the new Mac Pro tower. Apple is offering four different kits for upgrading your SSD storage on your own.
Each kit comes with two SSD modules and offers four storage options: 1TB, 2TB, 4TB, and 8TB. To learn more about the latest Apple updates, head over to the company’s official website.
