4 days ago   |   By Pocket-lint

Own a MacBook Pro but need more graphic processing power? Then you need to check out this latest Apple product. Technically, it's a Blackmagic product. Blackmagic is a cinema company, and it worked closely with Apple to create a new product for MacBook Pro users who need more graphic processing power. That product, an external GPU, is based around a Radeon Pro 580 with 8GB of video memory. It should give you 2.8-times faster graphics performance on the 15-inch MacBook Pro and 8-times faster on the 13-inch model.

Apple introduced a $700 device on Thursday called an "eGPU," made by a company called Blackmagic, that can give a 13-inch MacBook Pro better performance than any 15-inch MacBook Pro that Apple sells.
An eGPU is an enclosure that houses a graphics card, and you can plug it into a MacBook Pro with a USB-C cable, just like you would plug in your laptop's charger.
Apple's 13-inch MacBook Pros don't come with graphics card, which are useful for power-hungry tasks, like photo and video editing, as well as playing games. That's a privilege reserved for the 15-inch models. Adding an eGPU to the...
