Apple has announced the new Mac Pro, and it's a beauty--apparently both above the hood and below it. After hearing the awed response from the crowd after he unveiled the new, sleek design, Phil Schiller joked, “Can’t innovate anymore, my ass!”
Visually, the new Mac Pro looks little like the Mac Pros of years past. It looks more Alienware than traditional Apple, and at just 1/8 the size of previous Mac Pros, it's significantly smaller as well.
And it's powerful, too, built as it is with a 12-core Xeon processor. The new Mac Pro is twice as fast as the previous generation, with its memory sitting at 1866MHz DD3 with a 60GBps bandwidth. It gets better. Internal storage is based around the new PCIe Flash, which Schiller said is 2.5X faster than any Flash drive ever built, and ten times faster than the fastest Mac hard drive.
Those of you who were hoping it'd be expandable, rejoice. You can expand it with Thunderbolt 2 (it contains six Thunderbolt reports). In accord with the news about multiple displays earlier, it also supports up to three 4K displays and comes with dual workstation GPUs, with 528 GBps total bandwidth.
“This is a Mac unlike any that we have ever made,” says Schiller. And get this--it's 100 percent made in the U.S.A. Schiller announced that we'd see it this fall.
