Apple discontinued the previous gen Mac Pro on the 1st of March this year. But they haven’t let the line of products die, they have just announced an all new Mac Pro, giving us a sneak peek on what to expect.
The new Mac Pro is the powerful computer to come from Apple and as you can see from the image above, it’s very small – it’s 1/8th of the size in volume compared to the previous generation. It’s absolutely gorgeous, using a whole new design.
The Mac Pro now features Thunderbolt 2, support for three 4K displays, next-generation Intel Xeon processors, up to 12 cores of processing power, support for four-channel DDR3 memory at 1866Mhz, support for dual GPUs and support for new PCI Express flash storage which is 2.5x faster than standard SSD.
There is one thin column for all your posts including six thunderbolt ports, four USB 3.0 ports, two Gigabit Ethernet ports and a HDMI 1.4 port. With Thunderbolt 2 you can transfer data at 20GB/s and can daisy chain up to a staggering 36 different Thunderbolt devices.
The Mac Pro itself can be rotated, no having to reach around the back to get access to the ports. When it rotates it also lights up, showing the ports and their connections – brilliant for those who usually have their computer sitting under the desk.
It measures only 9.9-inches tall and with a diameter of 6.6-inches. Has a piano black finish which I’ve got to say it’s absolutely stunning.
Of course with this only being a sneak peek there isn’t much else on the computer but Apple are going to be bringing it later this year, according to their site.
