macOS Will Now Support AMD Radeon RX 560 eGPUs

One of the downsides to pretty much all Apple computers is that they lack the ability to upgrade. This is versus desktop PCs where they are not only easy to be disassembled but adding and swapping out old components for new ones is a relatively easy process. However, the saving grace is that at the very least Mac computers now support external GPUs.

Steam To Drop Support For macOS 10.10 Yosemite In 2019

For the most part just like iOS devices, Apple’s macOS devices tend to be pretty well supported. For example my 7-year old 2011 MacBook Air has been on the receiving end of major OS updates right up until macOS High Sierra, which was the last major update my laptop was capable of receiving.

Social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter have come under fire the past few years for apparently not doing much to curb hate speech from making their rounds.
