The company has been steadily releasing new graphics options for the Mac Pro since its release in December. Back in April, Apple added the Radeon Pro W5700X as an upgrade option.

The Radeon Pro W5500X upgrade will cost users $200 more than the standard price, slotting in between the base Radeon Pro 580X and the the aforementioned W5700X card.

AMD's Radeon Pro W5500X is based on the chipmaker's RDNA architecture and features 5.6 teraflops of single-precision performance up to 11.2 teraflops of half-precision performance. It can drive up to four 4K displays, a single 5K display or a single Apple Pro Display XDR.

Users can upgrade their Mac Pro models with up to two Radeon Pro W5500X MPX modules. It costs $600 as a standalone module.

    Good to see more updates. 

    Not sure if this is a card itself is any good, or should of been released. 

    But I’m definitely pleased to see Apple releasing card options again. Hopefully they keep this up as the card generations move forward
