2011 MacBook Pro Full Specifications
Yesterday we saw some specifications on the new MacBook Pro’s, the specifications were for the 13 inch MacBook Pro, and it looks like the 13 inch model will come will Intel HD 3000 graphics.
But what about the 15 and 17 inch models? According to CNET, Apple will be switching from NVIDIA discrete graphics to AMD discrete graphics.
15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro/AMD graphics: AMD (formerly ATI) “discrete” graphics silicon is now offered in the larger, more powerful MBPs. As in previous MacBook Pros, the discrete graphics chip is only fired up when heavy lifting is needed. When power savings is paramount or high-end graphics processing is not necessary, the system defaults to Intel’s graphics.
We will have more details later today when Apple unveils the new 2011 MacBook Pro’s.
