Radeon Pro in Mac products

Introducing Radeon™ Pro 500 Series Graphics

Radeon™ Pro 500 series graphics are built on the advanced “Polaris” architecture. Powering both the groundbreaking 15-inch MacBook Pro notebook and unparalleled 21.5 and 27 inch iMac all-in-one line-up, Radeon Pro 500 series graphics deliver an optimal combination of high performance and cool + quiet operation.

Power to Grow Your Imagination

Built on the advanced “Polaris” architecture with future-ready display technology. Precisely fabricated using the latest 14nm FinFET process means high quality visuals are achieved without sacrificing the extreme power efficiency required to enable portability in a notebook or sleekness/thinness in an all-in-one.

Advanced Polaris Architecture

The Radeon™ Pro graphics found in the MacBook Pro and iMac feature the latest “Polaris” architecture with 4th generation Graphics Core Next. Speed through your tasks with up to 36 compute units (2304 stream processors) and up to 5.5 TeraFLOPS of compute horsepower. Radeon Pro graphics feature versatile asynchronous compute, updated shader engines, enhanced memory compression and new geometry capabilities in a compact and efficient package.

OpenCL™ and Metal Support

Radeon Pro graphics enables professionals to tap into the parallel computing power of modern GPUs and multi-core CPUs to accelerate compute-intensive tasks in leading Media & Entertainment applications that support OpenCL or Metal.
