Apple has hinted at a major overhaul to its Mac Pro desktop and today the company delivered with an all-new design that touts a deep level of expandability for the most demanding of power users. The new Mac Pro goes back to a more traditional tower setup built around a stainless steel space frame with an aluminum housing that can be quickly removed to give you 360-degrees of access to the internals.
The base model will start with an 8-core 3.5GHz Intel Xeon W processor and can be configured all the way upto a 28-core 2.5GHz Intel Xeon W processor. RAM will start at 32GB and can be expanded up to 1.5TB and graphics options will include the AMD Radeon Pro 580X standard and a Pro Vega II Duo is available as the highest GPU spec. Up to 4TB of SSD storage will also be available.
The computer will offer plenty of expansion via eight PCI Express slots and Apple has also created their own accelerator card called the Afterburner, which targeted video-editing professionals with the ability to support playback of three 8K ProRes RAW streams. As for I/O, you'll have five Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB 3 ports, and two 10Gb Ethernet ports.
Available this Fall.
