Card series Radeon Pro 400 is based on the architecture of AMD Polaris and uses 14-nm FinFET process technology that delivers high performance and energy efficiency devices. Memory bandwidth is 80 GB/s. depending on the seniority card here is used up to 16 graphical units (of 1,024 stream processors). The maximum production capacity of 1.86 TFlops. Declared support for universal asynchronous computing, the availability of an updated Shader engine and enhanced compression memory.

according to the "Apple" manufacturer speed graphics processing Radeon Pro up to 130% faster compared to previous generation models, with Radeon Pro produces up to 2.5 times more processing power per watt of energy consumed. The 13-inch MacBook Pro running on an integrated graphics card Iris Graphics the 550, although Apple claims that these chips 103% faster than the Iris Graphics 6100 in the previous version of 13-inch MacBook Pro.

Despite the fact that Radeon Pro processor has 3 billion transistors, the thickness is only 1.5 mm.

Thanks to new technology MacBook Pro to remain cool and quiet even while performing demanding tasks.
