On Wednesday, Apple added the Radeon Pro W5500X to the list of graphics card options for the Mac Pro. This new options comes with 6GB of GDDR6 memory. For folks who go with this option, it’s a step up from the entry-level Radeon Pro 580X graphics card.

Adding the new Radeon Pro W5500X to your order will cost an additional $200. With this graphics card, the Mac Pro can support one 5K display, up to four 4K displays, and a single Pro Display XDR from Apple. It’s available to buy now if you’re interested.
