Apple to use NVIDIA GPUs in MacBook Pro notebooks

Posted on Wednesday, Jun 06 2007 @ 00:27 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Inq heard Apple isn't sticking with ATI for their new MacBook Pro notebooks, instead they will offer some of the new GeForce 8400 and 8600s:
The fruity firm's professional range of laptops have traditionally come with ATI processors - the current machine comes with Radeon X1600 installed, and our previous PowerBook here at the INQ had a 9700 in it.

But with the release of DX10-compatible mid-range parts, including the 8400 and the 8600, Nvidia appears to have won over Cappuccino and next week's new Macs will be fully green team enabled with the 8600 GT taking the hot seat.

The standard Macbook still comes with Intel integrated graphics. Hey, you can play Warcraft, right?
