Mac with AMD APU on the horizon? MacOS Beta codes discovered

A Mac with AMD processors it could be on the horizon: in the first beta of macOS 10.15.4, released by Apple the day before yesterday, several references to the code names of different APUs of the Sunnyvale chipmaker appeared. The two companies have been partners for some time, however only for GPUs. There is no Mac with a discrete video card branded NVIDIA, in short, but neither does a Mac without Intel processors. We remember that APU stands for Accelerated Processing Unit, and identifies processors with an integrated GPU. Renoir, Picasso, Raven and Vangogh are among the codes that emerged in the last Beta of macOS.

It is worth noting that all this could mean … nothing. Maybe Apple simply tested some prototypes which it didn't follow up on. Maybe, however, it means something: and that something could be the presumed Gaming Mac of which he spoke some time agoEconomic Daily News. The idea continues to seem a little too improbable, but it might as well be acknowledged and taken into consideration the new information for future reference.
