Apple has unveiled the all-new Mac Pro at the WWDC 2019. The Mac Pro is a shiny, elegant designed powerhouse that is a giant for the creators. Apple ditched the trash-can design of the last Mac Pro and brings back the tower design clad in Aluminium 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. The Mac Pro comes with 12 RAM slots and can have up to a whopping 1.5 TB 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.
Packed with such high-end software running any software on this beast is smooth as silk as per the currently available software.
