Apple and Blackmagic Teamed Up on an External GPU for MacBook Pros

13 July 2018

Turbo Boost takes that up to 4.5GHz.

As I've outlined before, the 2015 MacBook Pro offered a great keyboard with lots of cushy travel. The 13-inch MacBook Pro can accommodate up to 8th-generation, quad-core Core i7 CPUs, Intel Iris Plus 655 graphics, 16GB of RAM, and 2TB of SSD storage.

Apple has also introduced a new leather sleeve for both the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models. And while it's not a wholesale reinvention of this generation of MacBook Pro-Apple stuck with the previous body design for four years-it does address a few of the top complaints of MacBook Pro users.

Apple could release new iPad Pro models that feature an edge-to-edge screen and Apple's facial recognition technology, FaceID.

The laptops will also have a new "Hey Siri" capability, that allows people to trigger Apple's voice assistant without having to hit a combination of keys beforehand.

In addition to touching Prather's breasts and butt during her act, Daniels allegedly placed the officer's face on her breasts. In a Twitter post, attorney Michael Avenatti said Daniels was performing in the strip club.

The latest MacBook Pros also continue to pack 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports, which gives you awesome throughput and the ability to run multiple devices off of a single connector. Additionally it directly supports Apple Metal for increased performance in apps that support it. Arment argued that the entire 2012-2015 Retina Macbook Pro model was the best laptop Apple ever created, with the mid-2015 one being its peak.

This new third-generation keyboard wasn't created to solve those issues, Apple says. However, the new models still use a butterfly keyboard, and those who find them uncomfortable to type on will likely be sad to learn of the retirement of the only non-butterfly MacBook Pro option. Those Thunderbolt 3 connectors on the 13-inch and 15-inch models can support up to two 5K displays.

The new computers also feature the new Apple T2 chip, which was first used in last year's high-end iMac Pro.

Apple has faced criticism recently for its lack of processor updates on the MacBook Pro line despite most of its Windows PC competitors upgrading their respective models. Apple is never going to declare that its old keyboard design was bad; we're just going to have to wait and see if perhaps this new design turns out to be more resilient.

An eGPU is an enclosure that houses a graphics card, and you can plug it into a MacBook Pro with a USB-C cable, just like you would plug in your laptop's charger. It comes inside a small, compact and non-upgradable enclosure designed with Blackmagic.
