AMD Radeon‚ĄĘ Pro 5000M Series Mobile GPUs Bring High-Performance AMD RDNA Architecture to Apple‚Äôs New 16-inch MacBook Pro

AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announ¬≠ced that the latest Apple Mac¬≠Book Pro fea¬≠tures the new AMD Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ Pro 5500M and 5300M mobi¬≠le GPUs. AMD Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ Pro 5000M series are the first 7nm dis¬≠crete mobi¬≠le GPUs for pro¬≠fes¬≠sio¬≠nal users, lever¬≠aging indus¬≠try-lea¬≠ding pro¬≠cess tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gy and powerful AMD RDNA archi¬≠tec¬≠tu¬≠re to pro¬≠vi¬≠de ground¬≠brea¬≠king levels of gra¬≠phics per¬≠for¬≠mance for video editing, 3D con¬≠tent crea¬≠ti¬≠on and macOS-based game development.

AMD Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ Pro 5000M series mobi¬≠le GPUs are built upon the all-new AMD RDNA archi¬≠tec¬≠tu¬≠re, desi¬≠gned from the ground up for supe¬≠ri¬≠or per¬≠for¬≠mance, sca¬≠la¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty and power effi¬≠ci¬≠en¬≠cy. The new GPUs include up to 8GB of high-speed GDDR6 memo¬≠ry with up to 192 GB/s memo¬≠ry band¬≠width ‚Äď dou¬≠ble the band¬≠width of GDDR5 ‚Äď and also deli¬≠ver up to 4.0 TFLOPS of sin¬≠gle-pre¬≠cis¬≠i¬≠on floa¬≠ting-point (FP32) per¬≠for¬≠mance. The GPUs are opti¬≠mi¬≠zed for today‚Äôs top pro¬≠fes¬≠sio¬≠nal con¬≠tent crea¬≠ti¬≠on appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠ons and com¬≠pu¬≠te-inten¬≠si¬≠ve image ren¬≠de¬≠ring workloads, deli¬≠ve¬≠ring breath¬≠ta¬≠king, ultra-smooth, high-frame¬≠ra¬≠te visu¬≠als on the Mac¬≠Book Pro Reti¬≠na display.

‚ÄúToday‚Äôs high-end crea¬≠ti¬≠ve pro¬≠fes¬≠sio¬≠nals want the free¬≠dom to bring their ide¬≠as to life in the office or on the road wit¬≠hout tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gy get¬≠ting in their way,‚ÄĚ said Scott Her¬≠kel¬≠man, cor¬≠po¬≠ra¬≠te vice pre¬≠si¬≠dent and gene¬≠ral mana¬≠ger, Rade¬≠on Tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gies Group at AMD. ‚ÄúThe Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ Pro 5000M series GPUs pro¬≠vi¬≠de Mac¬≠Book Pro users with the hor¬≠se¬≠power and unmat¬≠ched visu¬≠al fide¬≠li¬≠ty allo¬≠wing them to focus on unleas¬≠hing their crea¬≠ti¬≠vi¬≠ty and deli¬≠ve¬≠ring ama¬≠zing results.‚ÄĚ

AMD Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ Pro 5000M pro¬≠ducts join the AMD Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500 series gra¬≠phics pro¬≠ducts announ¬≠ced in Octo¬≠ber 2019. AMD Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500M gam¬≠ing GPUs and the new AMD Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5300M gam¬≠ing GPUs are expec¬≠ted to be available in sys¬≠tems from other note¬≠book manu¬≠fac¬≠tu¬≠r¬≠ers this quarter.
