Apple and Blackmagic designed this eGPU to turbocharge MacBook Pros

Apple rumoured to be releasing a linewide hardware refresh this year Apple Upgrades MacBook Pro With Improved Keyboard, True Tone Display, More

Today, Apple announced a big update to its Macbook Pro line of computers.

Here's the pick of the offers.

He predicts Apple will launch new iPhones, laptops, desktops, watches, and headphones.

Pricing for the refreshed 13-inch Touch Bar MacBook Pro starts at $1799 for the 2.2 GHz model and $1999 for the 2.6 GHz model.

At $699 this would appear to be a great way to get extra graphical processing grunt to any MacBook Pro that supports it, and it is available to purchase right now through the Apple store.

It also features the T2 SoC and True Tone Retina display.

Most notably, Apple is introducing a new keyboard for the computers that will allow for "quieter typing". Today, Blackmagic Design announced the Blackmagic eGPU, a high performance graphics processor for pro creative software made in tandem with Apple and created to amplify the MacBook Pro. Apple also added an updated custom chip called the T2, which provides better security and brings the voice-controlled "Hey Siri" option to the Mac for the first time. Or, you could kick it up another notch entirely if you elect to splurge on the beastly six-core i9 with an unheard of (in a Mac) 4.8GHz clock speed (using turbo boost).

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.

Only the 13in and 15in MacBook Pros with Touch Bar have been updated, leaving the model without a Touch Bar unchanged, along with the smaller MacBook and iMac. Apple says that the keyboards in this 2018 update contain "third-generation" butterfly switches.

Currently, Apple has a few 2015 MacBook Pro models listed in its online clearance section, but it's likely that Apple will not have more to sell after those are gone.

Along with the new MacBook Pros, Cupertino is launching new, official leather sleeves for the devices. What started out as personal preference, however, evolved in some cases to all-out frustration, as some MacBook Pro keyboards began to exhibit sticking or intermittently functional keys. Professional users can take things to the next-level with upgrade options to 32GB memory on the 15-inch MacBook Pro, and up to 2TB SSD on the 13-inch and up to 4TB SSD on the 15-inch.
