    Hi,

    I'm about to upgrade to a 15" macbook pro 2016, to use it for music production.
    I was wondering if its worth upgrading the graphics card, so my question is:

    Will Logic Pro X take advantage of the dedicated graphics card with Metal/OpenCL ?

    Also,

    Will it be noticeable to upgrade to the fastest CPU, or is the difference to little, when using it in Logic with AU plugs?

    Thanks.

    Yep, dGPU will come in very handy. Would recommend the 4GB 460. CPU update won't be noticable so don't waste your money with that.

    If you're going to upgrade anything else, I'd recommend storage to 512GB at a minimum -- that would mean faster Flash speeds & appropriate storage for your plugins/AUs.
