MAC PRO: Apple Introduces An All-new Powerhouse
Apple has unveiled the all-new Mac Pro at its 2019 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), held in San Jose, United States.
The new addition is a shiny, elegant designed powerhouse that, unarguably, will become every creator’s favourite device.
Apple ditched the trash-can design of the last Mac Pro and brings back the tower design clad in Aluminum and is packed with heavy specifications. The all-new Mac Pro comes in with Intel Xeon processors, with 300W of power supplied to the processor to make sure it runs at its best at all times. It comes with 12 RAM slots and can have up to a whopping 1.5 Terabyte of system memory.
Also, the Mac Pro supports up to 128GB Radeon Vega II GPU and comes with 8 PCIe slots. Apple has also added a hardware accelerator to the Mac Pro that it calls ‘Afterburner’ and according to Apple, the Mac Pro has enough power to play up to 3 streams of 8K ProRes video files at the same time.
This ‘powerhouse’ is packed with such high-end software, which means running any software on it will be as smooth as silk, based on the currently available softwares.
When it comes to price, it is known that Apple products are usually expensive (for most). But, you get value for your money in the end.
That noted, expect the Mac Pro to start at a jaw-dropping $5,999, packed with an 8-core Intel Xeon processor, 32GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, and a Radeon RX580 GPU, and will be available towards the last quarter of this year.
Apple also announced a new pro-grade display called Pro Display XDR which will also be made available along with the Mac Pro. The Pro Display XDR comes with a super-wide viewing angle, a Retina 6K display, and it starts at a price of $4,999.
