Apple has announced it's new Mac Pro at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco. Molded with a tube like design, this powerful workstation looks out of this world.
The next generation Mac Pro leaves out the meshed tower like design and adopts a cylindrical tube like design. What is more intriguing is, it is only 9.9 inches tall and is said to be several times more powerful then it's predecessors.
The next generation Mac Pro is architectured around the new unified thermal core which is said to allow desktop to efficiently share its entire thermal capacity across all the processors. It comes equipped with Next generation Intel Xeon E5 processors with up to 12 core configurations for delivering double the floating point performance.
Mac pro features two AMD FirePro workstation-class GPUs, is said to deliver 7 teraflops of computing power. The new Mac Pro also features a PCIe-based flash storage that is said to be 10 times faster than a conventional desktop hard drives.
It also comes equipped with the latest four-channel ECC DDR3 memory running at 1866 MHz , which deliver up to 60GBps of memory bandwidth. These sort of specifications will allow the desktop to handle graphics and non-linear editing like a champ. Apple says the desktop should allow users to seamlessly edit full-resolution 4K videos, while simultaneously rendering effects in the background.
"With the latest Xeon processors, dual FirePro GPUs, ECC memory, PCIe-based flash and Thunderbolt 2, all built around a revolutionary thermal core, the next generation Mac Pro is the most radical Mac yet," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
"All this performance and expandability is packed into a dramatic new design that's one-eighth the volume, and best of all, it will be assembled here in the USA." He added.
The next generation Mac Pro encapsulates six Thunderbolt 2 ports that can deliver up to 20Gbps of bandwidth to each external device. Each of the six Thunderbolt 2 ports supports up to six daisy-chained devices, giving you the ability to connect up to 36 high-performance peripherals.
There is unfortunately no information on the price or release date of the new Mac Pro, but is to be made available by the end of this year.
