As soon as this summer Apple may launch redesigned MacBook Pro notebooks with new Apple silicon chips featuring eight high-performance processing cores and two high-efficiency ones.
The first developer beta of macOS Big Sur 11.4 includes new graphics drivers that permit Intel-based Macs to connect to some GPUs from AMD based on the Navi RDNA2 architecture.
As iDownloadBlog reported a few days ago, the new Apple Silicon-powered M1 Macs do not support external GPUs (eGPU), but that could be a temporary hiccup. That's because macOS Big Sur has bee discovered to detect a connected eGPU over Thunderbolt 3, although it's not exposed to the user or actually accessible for compute and graphics tasks.
The new M1 laptop chip in Apple's refreshed Mac mini, as well as in the 13-inch MacBook Air and Pro models, maxes out at 32 gigabytes of RAM. Also, it doesn't support external GPUs (eGPU) via Thunderbolt like its Intel-based counterpart does. Here's what's going on...
The Mac is transitioning to Apple's own silicon, CEO Tim Cook announced at the WWDC 2020.
Apple should unveil a new iMac at its upcoming virtual WWDC event that kicks off June 22.
Apple's for years been rumored to have been secretly developing its own desktop chips, based on iPhone and iPad processors, to ditch Intel from Macs. Bloomberg in a new report this morning claims that the tech giant is going to announce the first in-house designed main processors for Macs at the upcoming virtual WWDC event, which kicks off June 22.
The high-end version of BlackMagic's external GPU for Mac computers has been officially discontinued now that AMD recently dropped its Radeon RX Vega 56 graphics chip.
Apple doesn’t provide much by way of power savings on the iOS platform apart from the Low Power Mode feature and the use of general common sense with regard to reducing battery drain. Fortunately, those looking for more than what Apple seems willing to provide out of the box might be in luck as of this week.
Say hello to CPUTool, a newly released jailbreak tweak created by iOS developer Soh Satoh that lets the user underclock their handset’s CPU and/or GPU performance in an effort to optimize power consumption.
Imagination Technologies, a UK-based fabless chip designer, announced today that it has signed a new license agreement with Apple which will permit the Cupertino technology giant to use Imagination's intellectual property in its own designs in exchange for license fees.
BlackMagic yesterday released a new firmware update for users of its external GPUs which brings compatibility with Apple's new Pro Display XD 6K monitor to unsupported Macs.
Macs equipped with Thunderbolt 3 can boost graphics performance using an external graphics processor (eGPU). Here's a rundown of how this technology works, what it's good for, and how to get a Mac eGPU.
