According to the most recent report, Intel is readying up a batch of ‘special’ high-end Haswell processors for Apple’s next lineup of MacBook Pro laptops. The high powered notebooks have long been preferred by photographers and media folk who need something capable of handling high intensity graphic based work, but on the move.
SemiAccurate reports that the chips will feature Intel’s GT3e (Iris Pro 5200) integrated graphics – the company’s highest end offering. Apple allegedly ordered Intel to provide it with “as much GPU power as possible.” So, if true, it would certainly show that our favorite company could never be accused of planned obsolescence.
It’s believed that the new lineup of MacBook Pro laptops could hit shelves as early as September. And if the most recent rumor is true, they will be true powerhouse notebooks.
