AMD Releases Boot Camp Drivers for 16-Inch MacBook Pro With Radeon Pro 5600M Graphics

As noted on Reddit, AMD has released Boot Camp drivers for the 16-inch MacBook Pro with Radeon Pro 5600M graphics, providing full compatibility with Windows 10.

Introduced earlier this month as a $700 upgrade, Apple says the 5600M graphics with 8GB of HBM2 memory are up to 75 percent faster than the 5500M graphics with 4GB of GDDR6 memory in the base model 16-inch MacBook Pro.

Boot Camp allows Windows to be directly booted on Intel-based Macs. The utility will not be supported on future Arm-based Macs with custom-designed Apple processors, with Apple's software engineering chief Craig Federighi having stated that "purely virtualization" will be the route going forward for running Windows.

Or you could take that $700, and buy a PS5 with some games and extra controllers.

I have thought of how I might stick a TV and a PS5 into a backpack and carry them around. Never quite figured out where to get the Bag of Holding, though

only the next 5-7 years

considering we were told things like "more intel macs in the pipeline" and "We plan to continue to support and release new versions of macOS for Intel-based Macs for years to come."
keeping in mind their software support window tends to be 5-8years, regardless of a 2 year transition time.

that's also disregarding the possibility of radeon graphics paired with the high-end Silicon Mac's which hasnt been ruled out.

Total $700

Hmmm. Math checks out.
Your math is based on leaked information, Sony has yet to announce pricing for anything.


Oh, so you’re calling someone out and retreating back into your hole when someone calls you out. Got it.
I’m not going back into any hole, I could be wrong. Didn’t make a bet.

This isn't for games, its for compute with playing games being a nice side effect.
