During the keynote presentation, Apple emphasized that the company designed the Mac Pro to satisfy a wide range of professional uses demoing audio editing of a Logic Pro X project that included hundreds of tracks and a Final Cut Pro video project that displayed multiple 8K video streams.
The Apple MPX Module graphics expansion architecture brings more than 500W of power and Thunderbolt integration to the table.
This new display starts at $4,999, with the Pro Stand priced at $999, and the VESA mount adapter priced at $199. It's available with up to 28-core Intel Xeon processors and support 6-channel memory across 12 DIMM slots.
The Mac Pro can be configured with up to two Vega II Duo graphics modules, each of which boasts two AMD Radeon Vega II GPUs, delivering an impressive 128GB of HBM2 video memory and 56 teraflops of graphics performance.
The last Mac Pro came out in late 2013 as a workstation starting at $2,999. It appears that the MPX module will primarily be used for the desktop's graphics solution and can be used to connect a Radeon Pro Vega 2 or Pro Vega 2 Duo GPU.
Top House Dem says impeachment needs more public support
Schiff, the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, signaled the House may ultimately decline to pursue impeachment. The Louisiana Republican then told the Democrats, "If you're not going to do it, then let us get back to work".
Apple has dubbed the monitor the Pro Display XDR, and it's possible to connect up to six of these displays to one Mac Pro.
The Mac Pro will be running on up to 300W of power and will also sport heavy-duty cooling. The big holes on the new Mac Pro give it an even more intense grater flair than the original model.
Key to the new system's appeal is the modular enclosure - there's a stainless steal space frame with the aforementioned aluminum lift-off housing.
To enhance video processing - a major boon to video pros - Apple is also adding the option of a custom hardware accelerator called Afterburner.
That's a significant change for Apple, which in more recent years has focused on appealing industrial designs that made it incredibly hard - and in many cases, downright impossible - for users to upgrade their Mac computers. This time, Apple says the Mac Pro is built with upgrades in mind, but it's a very Apple approach to upgrading your computer. That matte finish isn't just an extra glare-reducing coating, it's a nanoscale etching into the surface of the glass, which should stave off reflections and glare and never wear off.
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. The standard model will sell for $4,999, with the matte-finish option selling for $5,999. It's also rotatable, providing a portrait mode for the first time on an official Mac display.
