Apple announced that the new Mac Pro, unveiled earlier this year, will launch with either quad-core, 6-core or 12-core Intel Xeon processors. It also offers AMD FirePro graphics with up to 4,094 stream processors, up to 12GB of VRAM and more. Additionally, Apple is packing in up to 1TB of PCI-based flash storage. As we already know, it supports up to three 4K displays, too.
Other features include HDMI-out, dual-Gigabit Ethernet, Thunderbolt 2, USB 3.0, Bluetooth 4, 802.11 a/c, a motion sensor and dual-audio out. “We built this so [our customers] can do things we can’t imagine,” Apple’s Phil Schiller said during today’s conference.
The computer will launch starting at $2,999 with a 3.7GHz quad-core Intel Xeon processor, 12GB of RAM, dual AMD FirePro D300 graphics and a 256GB hard drive. It will be assembled in the U.S., as Apple has said in the past.
