Apple has begun selling an upgraded version of the Blackmagic eGPU that it launched earlier in the year called the eGPU Pro.
The new version of the external GPU costs $1,549 CAD, which is quite a bit more expensive than the $899 GPU that came out in July.
The new unit is packing a Radeon RX Vega 56 graphics processor with 8GB of HBM2 memory, a DisplayPort 1.4 port, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, four USB 3 ports and an HDMI 2.0 port.
The eGPU Pro is only compatible with Macs that have Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports which means that it should work with the latest MacBook Pros and Airs. It will also work with Apple’s newest desktops that have Thunderbolt 3.
