    Hi all,

    I havn't seen any threads on this, so like to start a discussion on everyone feels about the AMD GPU that will probably end up in the Macbook Pro. I have been waiting to upgrade to the new MBP, especially coming from a 2013 MBA. But with the release of the new 10 series video cards from Nvidia, I'm kinda torn on buying the Pro or getting a window laptop (which will die prob after 2 years, lol)

    I've recently started 4k video editing using Adobe, mainly on my desktop PC. Since I haven't owned a MBP, what's the performance like on the current MBP with dedicated GPU.

    Appreciate all feedback.

    Cheers

    Considering I could edit 4K on my 2011 with dedicated gpu I think you will be fine

    If you google around there are several benchmark tests. Also on YouTube, Hardware Cunuks(sp?) had a test of a times doing various Premier Pro operations on a rMBP versus desktop PCs.

    Uh, why exactly so many people want nVidia's GPUs? AMD Polaris 11 architecture is more power efficient than any available nVidia mobile GPU...

    Do you have a source for that? Pascal is significantly more power efficient than Polaris when it comes to desktop GPU's, why would mobile GPU's be any different?

    It will be a 480m, not great, but decent enough
