The (Mid 2014) MacBook Pro Dual Graphics "Core i7" 2.5GHz 15" Retina Display is powered by a 22 nm Haswell/Crystalwell 2.5GHz Intel "Core i7" 4870HQ processor running "four cores" with a 6MB level 3 cache, 16GB of (non-upgradeable) onboard DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) SDRAM 512 GB Solid State PCIe flash drive with integrated Intel, dual graphics a NVIDIA GeGorce GT 75M and Iris 5200 Pro graphics processor with 128 MB of "Crystalwell" DRAM (plus shared system memory).

This 4.46 lb (2.02 kg) model is housed in an extra lean aluminum case, featuring a 220 ppi 2880x1800 15.4" "retina" high-res LED widescreen display and a 720p FaceTime HD webcam. It also has a backlit keyboard, a "No Button" glass inertial trackpad along with a claimed 8 hour battery. Similar to the Air models, Apple has phased out any internal optical drive.

Ports and connectivity come via 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 Thunderbolt ports, 1 HDMI port, 1 audio in/out port plus 1 SDXC card slot.
