Apple announced something pretty surprising and special today during WWDC. Apple announced that macOS will have support for external GPU’s and virtual reality headsets and experiences. Apple has teamed up with Valve to bring the HTC Vive VR headset to Mac and with supported apps like “Final Cut Pro X, SteamVR, Epic Unreal 4 Editor, and Unity Editor, developers will have everything they need to create immersive new worlds for you to explore.”
VR on the Mac is a lot more than just something to play with. This could open a massive window up for gamers and creators who use VR come over to the Mac to use VR. Though, you’ll need the iMac with a 5K display or the new iMac Pro to experience the VR. Don’t worry though, Apple hasn’t forgotten about the others! Apple has said to be allowing third-party companies to make e-gpus for the Mac users who don’t have those Macs. We’ll learn more about external graphics processors later this year.
