After announcing the new 16-inch MacBook Pro, Apple also announced the new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR will finally be avaliable sometime in December. Apple didn’t provide an exact date, but at least we got a timeframe of when to expect it. Here’s everything you need to know.
Apple’s re-designed high-end Pro machine, the Mac Pro, was announced during WWDC in June. Since then, Apple has kept quiet on a release date, only mentioning “coming later this fall” on their website.
Earlier today, Apple released a larger 16-inch MacBook Pro, and in that press release, Apple announced the new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR will be avaliable sometime in December. In fact, fall ends on December 21st, so they have until then to keep their “coming later this fall” promise.
The baseline Mac Pro will retail for $5,999 and feature an 8-core Intel Xeon processor, 32GB of RAM, and 256GB of SSD storage. The Pro Display XDR will retail for $4,999, with the optional stand costing $999.
Users will be able to customize their Mac Pro with a wide-array of high-end components, with an equally high-end price.
“Mac Pro features workstation-class Xeon processors up to 28 cores, a high-performance memory system with a massive 1.5TB capacity, eight PCIe expansion slots and a graphics architecture featuring the world’s most powerful graphics card,” says Apple.
It’s believed a top-end Mac Pro can cost around $40,000 to $50,000 when equipped with all the optional components and a Pro Display XDR.
