Apple announces latest Mac Pro ends a 6-year drought
Apple announced and displayed its latest Mac Pro, a computer not updated since 2013.
The latest Mac Pro has a totally distinct design than the 2013 Mac Pro “trashcan.” It looks like a traditional desktop tower PC, though with a little more chrome and shiny metal than most PC towers would have found. Its starting cost is $5,999, and in the fall this year it will be accessible.
Apple also announced that the new Mac Pro would be modular, allowing you to switch parts easily in order to customize the Mac Pro as you like.
Apple said that the Mac Pro could be configured with a fresh, highly impressive Intel Xeon processor with up to 28 cores. Most processors at the consumer level have four to eight cores.
It can also support an enormous amount of RAM — up to 1.4 terabytes (1,400 GB) of RAM. For reference, 16 GB of RAM is considered pretty good for most people, while 8 GB of RAM is about standard these days.
The Mac Pro will start at $5,999 for an eight-core Intel Xeon processor, 32 GB of RAM, an AMD Radeon 580 X graphics card, and a 256 GB SSD.
