Apple News:Apple to adopt AMD's new Polaris graphics chips in upcoming Macs - report

Apple to adopt AMD's new Polaris graphics chips in upcoming Macs - reportSeveral sources have claimed that an OEM design win AMD secured last year was indeed for Apple, according to WCCFTech. Apple currently uses AMD graphics cards in the Mac Pro, 27-inch iMacs, and the highest-end configurations of the MacBook Pro. The Polaris 10 is believed to be best-suited to iMacs, while the Polaris 11 could make its way into MacBook Pros.

On a per-watt ratio, the new chips are expected to be about twice as fast as their predecessors, thanks largely to a smaller 14-nanometer FinFET architecture. For comparison, Samsung versions of the Apple A9 processor — used in the iPhone 6s and SE — are also based on a 14-nanometer process.
FinFET originally invented by a Hitachi researcher who further developed his ideas while visiting UC Berkeley in the late 90s.
