No Apple 5K Thunderbolt GPU Display at WWDC 2016 Says Rene Ritchie

A new report defuses a rumor that Apple is ready to show off a new display with built-in GPU at the WWDC 2016.

The WWDC 2016 is only 11 days away and rumors about what Apple will unveil are intensifying leading up to Apple's developer conference. Earlier a rumor about a 5K Thunderbolt Display with built-in GPU raised quite a lot of attention. Now iMore's Rene Ritchie chimes in and bursts the bubble.

He states in a short post: "There'd been some speculation on Twitter and rumor reports about Apple possibly introducing a display with an integrated eGPU. Theory being, it would take some of the graphical processing overhead off MacBooks and/or facilitate a single-cable connection that could drive 5K. It sounds cool, but I asked around, and it's not happening at the keynote or any time in the immediate future."

Ritchie has a great reputation and his comment can't be shrugged off lightly. He comforts Apple fans with " but keep your eyes locked to the keynote on Monday, June 13."

The Apple WWDC 2016 will be for the most part about the new upcoming releases for OS X (macOS), iOS, tvOS and watchOS. It is expected that Apple will unveil some new hardware. A lot of product lines are due for upgrades including MacBook Pro and iMac. >
