Orders for the new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR will start on December 10th
According to the ” Save the Date ” e-mails that Apple has started sending to some customers, the company plans to release the new Mac Pro and XDR Pro Display on Tuesday 10 December.
In November, Apple confirmed that “the Mac Pro” and the XDR Pro Display would arrive in December , but so far the company had not provided a specific date. Apple’s e-mails state that orders will start on December 10 , so presumably shipments will begin immediately after orders are opened.
The new modular “Mac Pro” was presented for the first time in June at the Worldwide developer conference, with the machine destined for Apple’s pro user base.
Mac Pro has been designed with particular attention to the possibility of upgrading and expanding and presents a traditional form of PC with an Apple-esque stainless steel frame with a lattice that maximizes airflow.
Internal specifications include workstation-grade Xeon processors with up to 28 cores , up to 1.5 TB of high-performance memory , up to two Radeon Pro II Duo GPUs and eight PCIe and Apple Afterburner expansion slots , a hardware accelerator that changes the rules of the game allowing you to simultaneously play three ProRes RAW video streams at 8K.
“Mac Pro” will have a base price of $ 6,000 and will go up based on the configuration. The Mac Pro base features an 8-core Xeon W. chip.
Apple plans to sell “Mac Pro” along with Pro Display XDR, a 6K display with a resolution of 6016 x 3384 with 1,600 nits of peak brightness and a brightness of 1,000 nits supported and over 20 million pixels . It has a viewing angle of replacement and a contrast ratio of 1,000,000: 1 . Prices for the XDR Pro Display start at $ 5,000 , with an additional stand for the price of $ 999.
