Supporting Resources About AMD For more than 45 years AMD has driven innovation in high-performance computing, graphics, and visualization technologies ― the building blocks for gaming, immersive platforms, and the datacenter. Here's a look at how much the iOS and macOS devices will set you back this time.
Additionally, Apple has opted for an interesting array of ports with the new iMac, mixing USB-C Thunderbolt 3-capable plugs with standard USB 3.0. All initial units will ship with iOS 10 and there is some waiting to be done until later this Fall, when all the new exciting multitasking features will hit the iPad Pro line.
For the MacBook Pro to continue to keep pushing its Retina display moniker, it needs to go 4K in 2018. This beefy iMac Pro comes equipped with up to an 18-core Intel Xeon processor. Obviously this means that the smaller tablet is the most affordable buy, but Apple has crammed improved specifications into the new iPad Pro models in order to attract consumers.
On the iMac side, the refresh also came with more powerful graphics from a Radeon Pro 500-Series chip and up to 8 GB of vRAM.
The 12-inch MacBook on the other hand, is a device I've criticized in the past for not being powerful enough for my purposes.
Starting with the refreshed lineup, the MacBook now comes loaded with Kaby Lake processors up to 1.3 GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 3.6 GHz and up to 50 percent faster SSD and supports up to twice the memory.
That has always been true for the MacBooks naturally as well as the Mac Pro.
On the other hand, the company has also revealed its 15 inch MacBook Pro which features more discrete graphics than the 13 inch variant. The iPad Pro range will benefit from new iPad Pro 10.5-inch and iPad Pro 12.9-inch models. The downside t is that the storage is now reduced to 128GB SSD from the 256GB SSD in its predecessor. Announcing the changes at WWDC 2017, Apple's Craig Federighi said the update was focused more on refining the previous software, rather than redesigning it.
