Apple has added a high-end GPU upgrade option to the 16-inch MacBook Pro and is introducing an SSD Upgrade Kit for the Mac Pro.

The MacBook Pro can now be configured with the AMD Radeon Pro 5600M GPU with 8GB of HBM2 memory which offers a 75% performance increase over the next best configuration. The new GPU comes at a significant $700 premium compared to the $100 5500M add-on; however, you may want to consider it if you're doing heavy graphics work or want to future proof your MacBook.

Upgrade to the AMD Radeon Pro 5600M for desktop-class graphics, enabling your portable 16-inch MacBook Pro to handle demanding pro applications and graphics-intensive workloads with exceptional ease. Featuring 40 compute units and 8GB of High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2), with 394GB/s of memory bandwidth, this powerful GPU delivers performance that’s up to 75% faster than the AMD Radeon Pro 5500M.
