Apple teams with Black Magic Design on eGPU for new MacBook Pros

Apple Upgrades MacBook Pro With Improved Keyboard, True Tone Display, More

In a press release today, Apple announced updates to its MacBook Pro line of notebook computers. You can configure it with an i9 processor with 6 cores, 32GB of RAM, features a True Tone display and a brand new T2 chip that allows 'Hey Siri.' But that's just the tip of the iceberg. The sleeve costs $179 for the 13-inch MacBook Pro and $199 for the 15-inch model.

Many of us were hoping Apple to update the MacBook Pro lineup during WWDC this year. The new models with Touch Bar boast 8th-generation Intel Core processors, 6-core on the 15-inch edition for up to 70 percent faster performance, and quad-core on the 13-inch for up to two times faster performance. Also, storage can reach up to 2TB of PCIe NVMe SSD, but RAM remains limited to 16GB of LPDDR3-2133.

The keyboard is the third generation unit for the quietest typing anywhere you end up working.

Anyone hoping for an update to the cheaper Macbook Pro models which don't have this divisive feature have not been updated. First introduced on the iMac Pro, Apple insists the chip delivers, "enhanced system security with support for secure boot and on-the-fly encrypted storage". The new computers are available today to order through Apple.

For users who pound their machines outdoors - typically field editors and photographers - the fragility of the MacBook Pro's butterfly mechanism made it a non-starter.

The 13-inch MacBooks also come with 8GB DDR3 as the starting option and with 2133 MHz speeds.

You'd have to go to the MacBook Pro's page to discover it, but the Blackmagic eGPU is there, and it's labeled as "only at Apple."
This means Apple partnered with Blackmagic for this specific model. However, Apple is finally dealing with one of those issues with its update to the 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. It will be available in Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue and, Black colors. Meanwhile, users will also be able to activate Siri hands-free on the new MacBook Pro. The prices start at AED 7499 for the 13-inch Touch Bar model that features the quad-core Intel i5-8259U chip and a 256GB SSD.
