Apple recently announced that it’d be transitioning away from Intel processors for its own ARM-based chips, but that isn’t the only type of third-party hardware that’s being left behind. According to a table shown in an official WWDC20 video, Apple Silicon Macs will not support Intel, NVIDIA, and AMD graphics cards.

The current lineup of MacBooks and iMacs utilize Radeon GPUs, but evidently, these will be the last of their kind. We’re assuming that Apple has developed in-house graphics that’s competitive with AMD and Intel’s offerings, but if not, external GPUs may, hopefully, still be an option.
