Apple's New Monster Machine: The New Mac Pro

Mac Pro is designed for pros who need the ultimate in CPU performance. At the heart of the system is an Intel Xeon processor with up to 28 cores — the most ever in a Mac. In addition, large L2 and shared L3 caches and 64 PCI Express lanes provide massive bandwidth in and out of the processor. Engineered to go all out. All the time. Squeezing every possible ounce of performance out of the processor means giving it a lot of power. In this case, over 300 watts. A multicore workstation processor needs lots of memory to feed it. Featuring six channels of superfast ECC memory and 12 physical DIMM slots, Mac Pro allows for up to 1.5TB of memory. Up to 2933MHz DDR4 ECC memory and up to 140GB/s memory bandwidth Taking power one huge step further, Mac Pro supports configuration of two Radeon Pro Vega II Duo MPX Modules. The four GPUs combine to add up to 56 teraflops and 128GB of high-bandwidth memory. Up to 8TB storage. To deliver the fastest possible performance, Mac Pro is built on an all-flash storage architecture. It starts with a 256GB SSD and is configurable to a 1TB, 2TB, 4TB, or 8TB SSD — all encrypted by the T2 chip. The new Mac Pro starts at $5999 for 8-core, 32GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. If you include all of the upgrade options, it can reach a $50,000 price point. #computerengineering #apple #macpro #mac #computer #hardware #cpu #ram #memory #ssd #it #software #technology #processor #bandwidth #gpu #workstation
