Mac ARM transition speculation

  WilliamTi 01:31 25 Mar 2019

A lot has been said about the iPad Pro's new A12X processor. Apparently, it does better in benchmarks than 45W Intel Core i7 chips. That is a really good evidence that Mac's should use these chips. But these chips use integrated graphics. Apple's integrated graphics are far superior than Intel's solution, but nonetheless, I bet integrated graphics would not be enough for the most demanding tasks. So if this transition were to take place, would dedicated graphics from AMD or NVIDIA work with an ARM chip from Apple?
