    this is a very interesting looking gpu i didn't expect to see the hbm used again but then again apple has the rip-off margins to afford it

    I have a 16" Macbook Pro for work. I dual boot it into windows and have no problem playing a lot of games on it.

    What current products use HBM2? Could it be case of reduced demand bringing down the price per module. Thus making it more attractive even with the added cost of the interposer? Especially if AMD has existing tooling they can adapt.

    Would love to start seeing AMD release big APU's with HBM modules, since APU's do struggle with normal ddr4 having some HBM memory or I guess if they really wanted to throw in some GDDR5/6 ram in there on the motherboard for people who want a nice sleek laptop but have a little monster inside for some light/mid gaming :) Always makes me sad when AMD release these chips to consoles but don't let PC touch them, then again maybe the market just isn't there for them

    Maybe you can catch some older Subor Z.

    Very cool, based on the shader counts this is pretty much a 5700xt, heavily underclocked and sandwiched into a thin laptop. I'm kind of shocked the Macbook would have the cooling needed for this thing.

    Not counting eGPUs, I think this is the first time a MBP has had a high-end GPU. Going back as far as the core2 based stuff, I can't remember one having anything beyond a low/mid-range mobile GPU.
