Apple finally reveals the new Mac Pro

Apple finally reveals the new Mac Pro

Oh yeah, the Mac Pro has wheels!

And expansion capabilities it has!

The wags have already chimed in: Apple's new Mac Pro looks like a giant cheese grater. The top-end Mac Pro will hold Two Radeon Pro Vega II Duo cards, making a total of four AMD Radeon Pro Vega II GPUs. It will fully launch this autumn as a free software update for Macs introduced from mid-2012 and later.

Apple's new Mac Pro will go on sale in the fall, the company says. It also results in the decoding of 3 ProRes RAW video streams.

One area where Apple won't offer upgrades to the new Mac Pro is with the Intel Xeon processors; you'll configure these at time of purchase. That card features two Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports and a 3.5mm audio jack. But that's just for starters because each MPX module you add increases the number of available ports.

With the new Mac Pro, Apple has returned to the basics in a big manner.

Both the Mac Pro and the iMac Pro are expensive devices.

Yep, the back of the new Mac Pro has more holes as well.

This comes alongside other major WWDC 2019 highlights including iOS 13 , the new Apple Maps , and the power beast Mac Pro . However, Ars followed up with Apple to get some broad answers to users' questions about old libraries, Windows and more .

All of this huffing and puffing, according to Apple, is quiet enough to be nearly silent under normal workloads. What kind of monitor will you hook up to it?

While Apple has announced the starting price of this mammoth of a device (again, ₹4 lakh), the price of the top-of-the-line model (which can have different levels of ostentation, given you can plug in up to four XDR monitors whose stands cost $1,000 a pop) hasn't been announced. Display geeks will appreciate the insane 6,016 x 3,384 resolution, 10-bit color, 1,000-nit brightness, and unreal 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, but what people really wanna know is if any of this stuff really makes a difference. From here, you can access your existing music files as well as your Apple Music subscription, when applicable.

The Apple Pro Display XDR is also available in a model with nano-texture glass, which delivers lower reflectivity and less glare.

It's not clear how pricing will break down for various configurations of Mac Pro.

The Mac Pro is not a significant driver of the company's revenue, but it's a computer that keeps important and influential customers loyal.

The Pro Display XDR is priced at $4,999 while the stand which enables the screen to be rotated costs $999.

"The Pro Stand has an intricately engineered arm that perfectly counterbalances the display so it feels virtually weightless, allowing users to easily place it into position", Apple said.

During its WWDC event, Apple unveiled its redesigned Mac Pro, a "breakthrough workstation for pros" who need the type of heavy lifting that workstations provide.
