Apple could be looking to bring AMD Radeon graphics to the iMac, as the company has just placed an advertisement for a Hardware Systems Electrical Engineer on their website. The position looks for a ‘Senior EE to work on electrical & system design integration of the iMac computer system’. One of the key qualifications for this post is experience in AMD Graphics Processing Units or GPUs, as well as experience in Nvidia GPUs.
This is a rather interesting requirement because, in the past month, Apple released an updated iMac which brought significant improvements to the graphics processing power. This was provided by Nvidia GeForce graphics cards, which replaced the AMD Radeon GPUs found in the previous version of the iMac. With this latest job advertisement, Apple could be looking to offer AMD graphics cards in the iMac once again, perhaps as an alternative to the Nvidia cards to which currently, anyone purchasing a new iMac is limited.
The position has only just been advertised, so any inclusion of AMD cards in the iMac once again could still be years off.
