New Code In macOS 10.15.4 Beta Proves AMD Processor Is Coming To Mac

Since Apple computers have moved from PowerPC architecture to x86 architecture, Intel has always been the sole supplier of Mac processors, including that of the MacBook, iMac, and Mac Pro are Intel chipsets. Cooperation between Apple and AMD is restricted to discrete graphics.

In the most recent beta of macOS Catalina 10.15.4, however, the reference for AMD-related processors was found by Twitter user _rogame, including AMD APU code names such as "Picasso", "Renoir" and "Van Gogh". AMD's APU is a wining combination of CPU and GP, especially considering the 7-nanometer "Renoir" APU has been upgraded to 8-core 16-thread.

In terms of energy efficiency, AMD also introduced the SmartShift feature, which dynamically shifts power in your system to boost performance for the task at hand. Get extra performance whether you are playing your favorite game, rendering or editing videos. AMD SmartShift enables Ryzen and Radeon configured laptops to deliver outstanding performance in exceptional notebook form factors.

macOS 10.15.4 Beta 1 also has the code name Navi 21, which also means that feature MacBook products equipped with AMD APU can also select a new generation of graphics cards.

In December of last year, we have reported that Apple will introduce a gaming Mac at WWDC this year that would include AMD’s RDNA2 architecture graphics card, and there is a great chance that this machine will be based on the AMD CPU platform.
