Apple Releases New Mac Pro

Apple just delivered its promised all new Mac Pro, hitting store shelves and Apple’s online store, with several varieties to choose from. This Mac Pro features a striking cylindrical design, with all the main components revolving around a fan-cooled thermal core.

Measuring just 9.9 in (25 cm) tall and 6.6 in (16.8 cm) in diameter, Apple claims its latest home computer has only an eighth of the volume of the previous model, but can still house more advanced components for a much more powerful machine. To expand its capabilities, the computer also includes a staggering six Thunderbolt 2 ports, as well as four inputs for USB 3.0 and one for HDMI 1.4 UltraHD.

The most basic model retails for US$2,999, and includes a quad-core Intel Xeon E5 processor that can reach 3.9 GHz in speed, two AMD FirePro D300 GPUs with a combined 4 GB of VRAM, 12 GB of DDR3 ECC memory, and 256 GB of PCI Express flash storage. Starting with these specs, customers can also opt for processors with six, eight, or 12 cores, as well as further improved GPUs, up to 64 GB of memory, and as much as 1 TB of solid state storage. You may want to be selective with the options you choose though, since, judging from the current pricing on Apple’s website, the Mac Pro tower by itself with maxed-out hardware will cost a whopping $9,599.

Apple is now offering the new Mac Pro through its website, official store, and authorized resellers. Online orders won’t begin shipping until Dec. 30.
