As was first reported by TechCrunch on Monday, Apple has added a new graphics option for the newest MacBook Pro, as well as a new upgrade kit for the Mac Pro’s SSD. In the case of the latter option, this new upgrade kit will make it possible for owners of the latest Mac Pro to upgrade their built-in storage options without having to rely on a service provider to handle it. This covers the Mac Pro with the following storage options: 1TB, 2TB, 4TB, and 8TB. The report states that this upgrade kit should be available to buy by the end of the day today.

The newest graphics option for the latest 16-inch MacBook Pro model is available today as well, but it isn’t cheap. You’ll need to fork over an additional $700 to equip your Mac notebook with an AMD Radeon Pro 5600M graphics card, which features 8GB of HBM2 memory.

Apple says that this newest graphics option is up to 75 percent faster than the standard 5500M graphics card for the 16-inch MacBook Pro model.
