Intel has its generosity and magnanimity intact. So it will be lending its highly sophisticated and pricey Haswell processors to Apple Incorporated. Apple is to come out with its MacBook Pro, samples of which will contain these processors. According to MacRumors, these microchip processors will incorporate a rare model of Intel’s super-elite GT3e (Iris Pro 5200) integrated graphics module within their internal structures. Apple has entreated Intel to choose its crème de la crème GT3e devices for the microprocessors reserved for Apple. Since Apple will be getting preferential treatment from Intel that will automatically leave the rest of its customers at a disadvantage compared to the company bearing the forbidden fruit as a logo.
At the recent WWDC it was taken for granted that Apple would showcase its MacBook Pro and Haswell MacBook Air. But things didn’t go as planned and so the launch date has been postponed. However, it is to take place some time soon in the future. The 13 inch and 15 inch versions of each are to be displayed for all to gaze at in absolute wonderment. The 15 inch MacBook Pro is to sport a Core i7-4950HQ microchip that will be whirring along at a speed of 2.4 gigahertz. Then there is the Iris Pro 5200 integrated graphics feature built into it. It offers double to five times the functionality firepower of the i7-3840QM chip melding HD Graphics 4000 found in the Retina MacBook Pro. That is good news indeed. Apple aficionados will be waiting anxiously for the upcoming launch of the MacBook Pro since this time it will be having the power of Intel inside.
