    New MacBook Pro GPU supporting Mercury Playback Engine?


      I`m considering to buy a new MacBook Pro (15", 2.8GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 16MB RAM) for mainly video edditing with Premiere Pro. I wonder if its GPU`s support Mercury Playback Engine? witch I have understod is important for maximum speed working with Premiere Pro.

      The laptop I consider is using this two graphic cards:

      • Intel Iris Pro Graphics
      • AMD Radeon R9 M370X with 2GB of GDDR5 memory

      In the list of system requirements for Premiere Pro; Premiere Pro System Requirements for Mac OS and Windows is says "AMD FirePro" recomended for GPU acceleration for Mac and AMD Radeon (as the Mac comes with) is listed under Windows. This makes me wonder if the new Mac is not supporting maximum speed for Mercury Playback Engine? In any case, I would appreciate views oppon whitch GPU card you guys would recomend for a MacBook to work the best with Adobe Premiere Pro?
