2016 MacBook Pro May Replace Intel Chip With AMD Zen GPU
AMD is indeed experiencing massive success as its Polaris 10 GPUs proved to be a popular pick for tech product manufacturers as well as end-users alike. Now, AMD is facing yet another potential breakthrough as its GPUs are said to be working closely with Apple for the upcoming MacBook Pro 2016 laptops.
What makes it really captivating is that Apple may break free from the Intel processors that it once has and instead put an AMD Zen APU in its latest MacBook Pro, a device which is reported to be unveiled in the very near future.
What Makes Apple Different From Microsoft?
Apple is very much different from Microsoft Windows as it focuses on GPU performance when talking about the capabilities of its MacBook Pro. It is highly possible that the AMD Zen APU will take the form of the custom SoC. If not, then a regular variant will be used, whichever AMD and Apple agrees on.
As of now, Kaby Lake processors do not seem to be much of a popular choice for Apple. This could have inspired AMD to grab the opportunity to be the partner that Apple needs and wants to have for its next generation devices.
AMD is known to successfully adapt to the needs of its clients, which is why a custom SoC design would be an easy task for the company if ever it is to be used for Apple's soon-to-be-released MacBook Pro 2016.
The MacBook Pro 2016 Would Be A Powerhouse
If speculations are true, then combining the Polaris with the HBM2 for the APU would surely be an exponential upgrade for the MacBook Pro 2016.
One can see that Apple is doing the best of what it can to improve the features and specs of its next-gen products. It doesn't mind if it was to sacrifice old partnerships, as it is brave enough to take the risk for a faster and stronger spec provider, with the likes of the new AMD Zen GPU.
