MacBook Pro 2017 Specs: 2017 Launch Drops Intel Officially? Ryzen 7 CPU More Likely

MacBook Pro 2017 is set to launch and Apple is expected to return stronger this time with the highly-awaited device. It should be noted that the previous MacBook  Pro that was unveiled in October last year received negative reviews due to some design flaws.

MacBook Pro 2017 Will Drop Intel Processors

The new MacBook Pro 2017 is expected to mark the company's dropping of Intel processors when it launches this year. According to reports, a chip codenamed as "T310" was developed last year and may likely run the low-power mode functionality of the laptop while performing alongside an Intel processor.

MacBook Pro 2017 is also rumored to opt for AMD's new Ryzen 7 CPU as a replacement for Intel's chips than develop its own processor. Furthermore, the new laptop could also be driven by the new Raven Ridge APU, which is the combination of a Vega-based GPU and a Ryzen CPU.

Meantime, reports claim that AMD's CPU line brings stunning performance per watt as compared to Intel's chipsets that coincides with Apple's design philosophy regarding efficient energy use over maximum performance.

Meanwhile, MacBook Pro 2017 is expected to be released later this year. Further reports suggest that 12-inch MacBooks will go into a mass production during the second quarter and will likely be developed with 16GB of RAM, MacWorld reported.

MacBook Pro 2017 Will Deliver New Technologies

MacBook Pro 2017 patrons are now excited over the upcoming release of the highly-awaited laptop. Recently, tech analyst Ming-Chi Kuo hinted of a huge 32GB of RAM from the newest member of the MacBook Pro series.

MacBook Pro 2017 was earlier predicted by the tech analyst to come in the second half of this year, and even revealed of support for 32GB of RAM, including an indication that Intel will launch the required processors in time.

It is also worth noting that he also predicted that the entire range of Apple devices this year will be upgraded. Apple, on the other hand, has announced the plan to bring new technologies to the new device, Forbes reported.
