When will the macbook pro 15 get its update ? and what could it be
Probably towards the end of the year. It should have the quad core Broadwell and it better have at least a high 800 series GPU.
Everything I've read said that they are skipping Broadwell-H and the 800 series GPU is outdated. I'd expect Skylake 2H'15-Q1'16, bringing DDR4 RAM, 920-950M for the high end model, USB-C, TB3, possibly wireless charging and possibly a case redesign.
The 750M was outdated when they put it in the mid 2014 rMBP 15, had already been out a year. It should have had the 800 series in it but Apple was too lazy to upgrade it.
I dont know when but hopefully before holidays. I have been looking to update my trusty mid 2009 MBP 13 for some time now. I do hope whatever happens they keep pricing about the same.
Same here. My 2008 MBP has seen better days.
i'd be greatly disappointed if they do put an 800 gpu in there. i would expect at least a 960m by the time it comes out.
Read my previous post, 3 above yours.
i did, but you also stated that the upcoming one should at least have the 800.. i wouldn't even mention that gpu series at this point.
They benchmark almost exactly the same as the maxwell 900 series.
I expect they'll use the 900 series though as thats the latest. I think they'll use broadwell Those chips are made with apple in mind and other OEMs use them sparingly so intel has no other real reason to release them.
there's still about a 10% difference, and with the 960m already available.. there's no reason not to use it. and considering that by the time they do release the update for the 15".. these will already be somewhat outdated. the 800 series more so. this is the reason why i just stopped waiting for the 15 MBP and just went ahead and got the Razer Blade with a 970m. the 960m is already weak in comparison to the 970m (i believe it's like a 60% difference), so i dunno why you guys would want to settle for an 800m in the 15" MBP by the time it comes out.
Many of us don't game
It makes no real difference to most macbook pro users and those that do use dGPU will be more about rendering and open CL performance and CUDA than open GL & frame rate optimisation.
Nobody said they'd accept an 800 series just that they might be a possibility, the 970M is not going to be there the 100watt TDP is just too high for it the rMBP. It will use one with a TDP between 40 and 60 so hopefully a 960M.
Macbooks are a compromise between heat, weight, noise, power usage battery life and the performance of the machine. Apple goes for middle ground on all of these things. It is no use having a super powerfull GPU when your laptop only gets 1.5 hours battery...
basically what I've been saying before
by the way, i get 6hrs on the blade with 970m.
