Blackmagic is a cinema company, and it worked closely with Apple to create a new product for MacBook Pro users who need more graphic processing power.

The device reportedly offers up to 2.8-times faster graphics performance on the 15-inch MacBook Pro, and 8-times faster performance on the 13-inch MacBook Pro. It can also be configured to up to 32GB of RAM and 4TB of SSD storage. Failing that, it may just be time to bite the bullet and check out the 2018 MacBook Pros in the hope that this new third-generation butterfly keyboard is up to snuff.

Of course, those fans would have the funds ready for the purchase, because these new MacBook Pros don't come cheap.

While Apple has upgraded the MacBook Pro 2018's keyboard, with the third generation of the keyboard being quieter to type on, some people will be dismayed that the company apparently hasn't directly addressed the issue of the sticky keys.

If you end up taking your 2017 MacBook Pro to your nearest Apple Store and get a replacement, make sure to drop a comment and let us know about it.


Fully loaded with new, eighth-generation Intel 6-core and quad-core processors, up to 32GB of memory for running multiple pro apps, stunning Retina display with True Tone technology, and a Touch Bar for working more productively - the new MackBook Pros really are built for professionals. Apple says it also now supports double the eDRAM, 16GB RAM max, and up to 2TB SSD.

According to a support document from Apple, all three displays will work with True Tone, just like the internal display.
