16-inch MacBook Pro GPUs versus 15-inch MacBook Pro GPUs

December 3rd, 2019 by rob-ART morgan, mad scientist

One of the best ways to compare laptop GPUs is with these two GPU benchmarking apps. Plus if your GPU does not appear below, you can look it up in their respective database of results and/or run the benchmark yourself.


GRAPH LEGEND

Pro 5500M = 2019 16-inch MacBook Pro with Radeon Pro 5500M GPU and 8G of GDDR6 memory

Pro 5300M = 2019 16-inch MacBook Pro with Radeon Pro 5300M GPU and 4G of GDDR6 memory
Pro Vega 20 = 2018/2019 15-inch MacBook Pro with Radeon Pro Vega 20 GPU and 4G of HBM2 memory
Pro Vega 16 = 2018/2019 15-inch MacBook Pro with Radeon Pro Vega 16 GPU and 4G of HBM2 memory
Pro 560X = 2018/2019 15-inch MacBook Pro with Radeon Pro 560X GPU and 4G of GDDR5 memory
Pro 560 = 2017 15-inch MacBook Pro with Radeon Pro 560 GPU and 4G of GDDR5 memory
Pro 555X = 2018/2019 15-inch MacBook Pro with Radeon Pro 555X GPU and 4G of GDDR5 memory
Pro 555 = 2017 15-inch MacBook Pro with Radeon Pro 555 GPU and 2G of GDDR5 memory

Geekbench 5 Metal Compute
Tests your system's potential for gaming, image processing, or video editing. (HIGHER Score = FASTER)

16-inch MacBook Pro versus older MacBook Pros running Geekbench Metal Compute

GFXBench 3.1 Metal
Aztec High Tier Offscreen Benchmark. (HIGHER Frames per Second = FASTER)

WHAT DID WE LEARN?

During the last three years, the speed of the MacBook Pro GPUs has doubled and tripled, depending on what test you use.

The optional GPU with the most video memory is a bargain and future proofs your Mac purchase.
