Maybe the upcoming Mid 2020 Macbook pro 16 will still use intel? I am one of the few that still use bootcamp.....
If there is a 16-inch MacBook Pro refresh THIS YEAR, then yes, it will most likely still use Intel. But do bear in mind that 10th Gen H-series Intel CPUs suitable for the 16-inch MacBook Pro are not that much (if at all) faster than 9th Gen versions. If there is to be any meaningful update here, it would be in newer AMD discrete graphics. We're almost guaranteed to not see a Mac with 11th Gen Intel Core processors in tow.
All that to say that, especially given its maturity, you're probably safe buying a 16" MacBook Pro now. Certainly there will be no Apple Silicon Mac releases PRIOR to the public launch of macOS Big Sur.
Must be from unhappy user plagued from 5500 series GPU issue...Navy GPU are problematic since day one....
You do realize that these are 13-inch
MacBook Pros and not 16-inch
MacBook Pros, right? 13-inch MacBook Pros have never had discrete graphics processors in tow (and, at this rate, most likely never will).
I think it’s likely to have another Intel model.
Considering its Apple Silicon replacement will need at least nine more months in the oven, I'd say that's pretty likely, though I wouldn't expect 10th Gen to do much more than give Apple an opportunity to further stabilize the final Intel 16" MacBook Pro going into the transition. The MacBook Air and 13" MacBook Pro replacements, however, are definitely almost ready.
I’ll repeat this sentiment for the next year or so - if you want to get one of the last Intel Macs, get one now. The closer we get to Apple Silicon, the more buyers remorse you’ll have for buying and not waiting.
I’m not saying Apple Silicon is going to be a revolutionary change, but being months away from having stood on the fence is worse than years.
...Unless you still need Intel inside for things like Boot Camp or x86 OS virtualization. You're not going to get either of those things on Apple Silicon. Even if Apple and Microsoft join up and Apple reverses course on a Boot Camp for Apple Silicon, it won't be with the x86-64/x64 versions of Windows 10, but rather Windows 10 for ARM64.
I'd like to see a mac mini with one of those 10th gen processors, please.
It's not going to happen. But part of me thinks you're probably already aware of that. Take heart though, 8th Gen Intel based Macs will be ready to make the jump soonest. Two 8th Gen based Intel Macs (the 2020 Intel Two-Port 13" MacBook Pro and 21.5" iMac) are VERY likely going to see replacement with Apple Silicon models THIS YEAR. The Mac mini likely won't be far off in that regard. All 8th Gen Macs (and, really, all 2020 quad-core 10th Gen Intel based 13" Mac notebooks, for that matter) are going to be ready to move to Apple Silicon as soon as Big Sur is out. The question is how ready is Apple to launch.
That said, if you, like me, need Intel, I'd either get the current Mac mini, or an iMac if what you need is an Intel Mac desktop.
