Apple readying new external 5K Display as current model goes out of stock, may feature integrated GPU | 9to 5Mac

Apple released its external display "Thunderbolt Display" in the summer of 2011 and has been selling for five years, but the perspective that it finally comes to an end has expanded. It is based on the fact that it is confirmed at the Apple shops that the stock of this model is lost.

The Thunderbolt Display is a 27-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1536 pixels, and as its name implies, it was a model that adopted Thunderbolt with a speed up to 20 times that of USB 2.0 for connecting with a Mac.

The price of Thunderbolt Display as of June 2016 is 108,800 yen in Apple's online store. It is also unavoidable that even if it is said that 4K is quite expensive from the latest situation that now is not uncommon, Apple predicts that a new 5K display will be announced It seems to be said that it is a natural course.

Apple-based information site "9to5Mac" predicts the specification of "New Thunderbolt Display" that is expected to appear, "5K display with resolution 5120 × 2880 pixels". In addition, we anticipate the emergence of a new solution "Built-in GPU in display body". This is considered to be based on the idea of ​​reinforcing graphic processing, which became difficult to improve performance by thinning with MacBook, with a built-in GPU.

Although the method of connecting the Mac and the display has not been clarified yet, 9to 5Mac predicts "Thunderbolt 3 connection via USB-C port". In any case, there is no doubt that a connection method with a very high bandwidth is required because processing that was conventionally done inside the computer will be outputted externally.

There are still a lot of unknown points still remaining such as whether this new style display is actually released and what its name will be, but at least WWDC 2016 from 13 June 2016 clearly shows something It seems that there is no mistake as it is done.
