Can I customise the graphic card on a MacBook Pro 15" 2015 model?

Hi, I went to buy a MacBook Pro 15" and was surprised that I not longer have the option of choosing your graphic card! I need to customise the graphic card to be an Amd radeon R9 M370X 2048 MB as you could do only months ago

Assuming this is not longer offered on the website, how can i solve this issue? I don't want to get the latest model and need that graphic card.

Much appreciated!!

Looks like you can't "upgrade" the card. Because there's a cpu soldered on, and Bluetooth to your keyboard and trackpad. However it appears you can change the settings

The AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2048 MB GPU was never offered as a custom build ;-{

@danj these GPUs were available on some of the A1398 2015 models, but it did have to be customised. See http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/ma...

Juan, you will have to get a used Macbook if you want this GPU, unless you can find someone offering a refurbished model.

Well, shiver me timbers! I stand corrected. I don't think they sold that many.

None of the modern MacBook Pro systems offered a AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2048 MB GPU.

The Mid 2014 system did offer a dual GPU solution: MacBook Pro 15" Retina 2.8 GHz i7" (Mid-2014) or if you wanted the older non-retina then: MacBook Pro 15" 2.7 GHz i7 (Mid-2012) both use NVIDIA GeForce GT - 750M or 650M. These are the last dual GPU models.

The AMD Radeon HD 6750M was last used back in 2011: MacBook Pro 15" 2.2 GHz i7 (Late 2011)

You'll need to look for a used system if you need that exact GPU.

OR jump to the newest MacBook Pro Touch bar which has a AMD Radeon Pro 450 or 455 GPU MacBook Pro 15" 2.9 GHz i7 Touch Bar (Late 2016)

Try shopping Apple offerings in their clearance areas to pick up some older machines that will have full warranties here:
