It runs on Intel Iris Pro graphics. MacBook Pro 2015 sports three USB 3 ports, two Thunderbolt 2 ports and HDMI port and the 3.5mm headphone slot. This was the last MacBook with different kinds of Ports. With 2016 models, Apple just went for Type-C USB ports.
The immediate successor of 2015 MacBook Pro, the MacBook Pro 2016 also sports a 15.4-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit Retina display with 2,880 x 1,800 pixels resolution.
