Apple Adds New MacBook Pro Graphics Option and Mac Pro SSD Upgrade Kit

Brian Heater, reporting for TechCrunch:

A week before kicking off WWDC, Apple introduced a pair of upgrades to its pro-level hardware lines. Both the 16-inch MacBook Pro and the Mac Pro desktop are getting select internal upgrades, starting today.

On the notebook front, the 16-inch model gets an additional graphics configuration. The addition of the AMD Radeon Pro 5600M GPU marks the best graphics performance yet for the notebook line, marking up a 75% speed increase over the the next-highest configuration, the Radeon Pro 5500M.

Time to start keeping a file of announcements that didn’t make it into next week’s WWDC keynote. (See also: new 0% Apple Card financing for Mac, iPad, and other hardware.)
