Apple Mac To Support External GPU’s, Also Includes VR Development Kit, All For $599
Apple has now begun selling their handcrafted external graphics to developers! Now all Mac owners will have the power to get a little more extra zing when it comes to 3D gaming and more!
SteamVR is now exclusively available for Mac laptops, said Valve – the owners of Steam. As part of the updated Metal 2 graphics tech in macOS High Sierra, Apple announced that the new Macbooks would soon support external GPUs via the Thunderbolt 3 port.
The only thing that maybe limits users, still, is that currently, only the mandatory beta version of macOS High Sierra is available. But worry not! We’re sure Apple is going to have the new macOS up and running in no time across all existing macs 😇
What It Looks Like
The Apple external graphic largess subsists of a Sonnet external GPU chassis with Thunderbolt 3 support and a 350-watt power supply. The package comes with an AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB graphics card, which is a VR-ready GPU.
On top of that, Apple will also provide developers with a $100 HTC live headset to be able to properly enjoy all the VR capabilities. The only thing you need to do is to sign up for the Apple Developer Program!
Apple is step by step smoothening ways to become the most opted gaming platform in the future.
Gamers, start your engines! 😉
