    Apple rumored to switch to Nvidia graphics for new MacBook Pros [Rumor]

    New reports claim to have confirmed that Apple's upcoming MacBook Pros will eschew AMD graphics processors in favor of GPUs from Nvidia.


    The Cupertino, Calif., company's current 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pro models make use of AMD's Radeon HD 6750M and 6770M graphics chips. The 13-inch model features integrated Intel graphics.

    According to The Verge, a "trusted source" has confirmed that Apple will switch to Nvidia as the supplier of its discrete GPUs for the MacBook Pro. ABC News' Joanna Stern, formerly of The Verge, reported separately that, according to her publication's own sources, the next generation of MacBook Pros will sport Nvidia graphics chips.

    Monday's reports counter a rumor from March that Apple had decided to drop Nvidia's Kepler graphics cards from a "large number" of its next-gen MacBook Pros over supply issues.

    Chatter surrounding Apple's Mac plans has picked up in recent weeks. Benchmarks reportedly of unreleased MacBook Pro and iMac models were spotted on the GeekBench site late last week. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster issued a note speculating that new MacBooks and iMacs will arrive by June. The inconsistently accurate DigiTimes claimed that component suppliers expect new MacBook models to launch in June.





    Bloomberg also chimed in on Monday with its own sources, claiming that Apple would unveil its new MacBook Pros at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June. According to the report, the next-generation laptops will be thinner and feature Retina Display-like screens.

    AppleInsider's own sources revealed in February that Apple is planning a radical redesign of its professional notebooks that should slim down its MacBook Pros and make them more like the MacBook Air.
