The Apple Xserve lives on (kinda) in the rack-mountable Mac Pro

The Apple Xserve lives on (kinda) in the rack-mountable Mac Pro

During the keynote presentation at WWDC today, Apple previewed the long-awaited Mac Pro alongside a new 32-inch pro display. But looking at the new machine made some observers hungry. Bonus: it also looks like a cheese grater from the front.

There's very little bezel on the Pro Display, and the industrial design is clearly created in such a way to mirror the brutalist look on the new Mac Pro.

Apple promised professionals not too long ago a Mac Pro that would be a lot more upgradeable than the latest model, and Apple finally delivered.

Twitter was quick to welcome the shiny silver design with the handles on top.

"With its powerful Xeon processors, massive memory capacity, groundbreaking GPU architecture, PCIe expansion, Afterburner accelerator card and jaw-dropping design, the new Mac Pro is a monster that will enable pros to do their life's best work".

That's all good and well, but far and away the most interesting part of the new Mac Pro is in its expansion slots.

If you squint, you can also see a certain resemblance to a foot rasp used to smooth out rough heels.

The base Mac Pro packs an 8-core processor, 32GB of memory, Radeon Pro 580X graphics, and 256GB SSD, and it'll cost $5,999 when it launches this fall.

Trump ends $5.6 billion trade preference for India
The Trump administration launched the eligibility review of India's compliance with the GSP market access criterion in April 2018. Adding, it has "significant development imperatives and concerns and our people also aspire for better standards of living.

While the Pro Display has a hefty price tag, Apple has described the monitor as a tool for professionals working in video production and graphic design.

The Mac Pro will be running on up to 300W of power and will also sport heavy-duty cooling.

Apple's new mobile operating system is getting a power boost. It will all be available in the fall. Mac Pro can accommodate two MPX Modules so customers can use two Vega II Duos for a staggering 56 teraflops of graphics performance and 128GB of video memory.

Eight PCI Express expansion slots allow the system to be configured for any number of workflow needs.

The company is pushing video editing performance in particular, touting an optional video card called "Afterburner" that includes a programmable ASIC that Apple claims can decode more than 6 billion pixels per second.

The monitor is priced starting at $4,999, but an anti-glare option with a finely etched glass panel will cost $5,000 and the detachable Pro Stand which allows for tilt, swivel and height adjustment will cost $999 (approximately Rs. 69,000). In true Apple fashion, the company decided this was worthy of branding, and are calling it Extreme Dynamic Range (XDR). The display also features an extra-wide, accurate viewing angle with an anti-reflective coating.

The Pro Display XDR is able to sustain 1000 nits of full screen brightness indefinitely, with 1,600 nits of peak brightness, and the thermal lattice on the back of the display acts as a heat sink to keep the LEDs cool. For other mounting options, there is a quick attach VESA mounting bracket ($199) that will let you hang the monitor on the wall or attach a more flexible mounting arm.
