Apple introduces new Mac Pro with crazy features

ByAdeline Belluz 2019-06-04 334

Apple has given its Mac Pro a monstrous upgrade. The new desktop computer is modular and can process 8K videos in real time if required. The "trash can" introduced in 2013 is history. With its new Mac Pro, Apple is once again following the classic desktop design of the old Mac Pro with its cheese grater look. The focus of the new professional calculator is on the inner values. As promised, the new Mac is designed for modularity, maximum performance, and flexibility.

The Mac Pro has a stainless steel frame and handles that Apple says provide all-round access to the components so you can replace or expand them as you like. Every component of the Mac Pro is trimmed for performance, which is already reflected in the processors: In the maximum configuration, the computer comes with an Intel Xeon processor with up to 28 cores, 64 PCI Express lanes for no bandwidth bottlenecks. Memory can be upgraded to up to 1.5 terabytes in a six-channel memory architecture with twelve physical DIMM slots.

To animate 3D movies, assemble 8K scenes or create complex 3D environments with the Monster Calculator, Apple offers graphics performance of up to 56 teraflops. The company achieves this performance with a new fanless graphics expansion architecture called Apple's MPX module, in which a Radeon Pro Vega II Duo consisting of two Vega II units can fit in when needed. The Mac Pro can also accommodate two of the MPX modules, four graphics units with up to 128 gigabytes of memory. The module has Thunderbolt integration and over 500 watts of power. The graphic unit is cooled with the help of the heat management of the Mac Pro system. The graphics options of the Mac Pro start with the Radeon Pro 580X.

The new Mac Pro costs $6,000 or more

The new Mac Pro comes with an optional programmable Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) called Apple Afterburner. According to Apple, the ASIC can decode up to 6.3 billion pixels per second. Using the Afterburners, video editors can use native formats directly from the camera. Apple is convinced that up to three streams of 8K ProRes RAW video and twelve streams of 4K ProRes RAW video can be decoded in real time, which practically eliminates proxy workflows.

According to Apple, two USB-A ports, two Thunderbolt 3 ports with USB-C and support for Displayport are available as standard on ports. Two ten Gigabit Ethernet ports are also integrated. For the Mac Pro, Apple also offers an I/O module that adds two additional Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB A ports, and a 3.5 mm audio jack to the computer.

Apple has installed a 1.4-kilowatt power supply in its 18-kilogram computing monster to ensure that the computer always has enough power available. To enable the heavy monster to be moved when required, there are even optional attachable castors.

The new Mac Pro starts at $5,999 and will be available this fall. All technical features of the Mac Pro can be found on the product page. The Mac Pro is accompanied by a new 32-inch display from its own house. The screen costs from 4,999 US dollars.

The new Mac Pro costs from 6,000 dollars.
