It’s officially Mac Pro season! Apple has officially launched the Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR for pro customers. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

If you want an in-depth article regarding the design of Mac Pro, you can read the article I wrote back in June shortly after WWDC, here.

The day both Apple and Pro’s have been waiting for is finally here. The all-new Mac Pro is now avaliable for purchase on the Apple Online Store.

Pricing for the Mac Pro starts at $5,999 for the Tower, and $6,499 for the Rack-mountable model. The Rack-mountable Mac Pro will be available at a later date.

While the baseline Mac Pro starts at $5,999, it can quickly add up if you decide to upgrade. A fully loaded model with a 2.5 GHz 28‑core Intel Xeon W processor, 1.5 TB (12 x 128 GB) of DDR4 ECC memory, 4 TB SSD, Two Radeon Pro Vega II Duo with 2 x 32 GB of HBM2 memory each, and an Apple Afterburner card, will run you $52,599.

“We designed Mac Pro for users who require a modular system with extreme performance, expansion and configurability. With its powerful Xeon processors, massive memory capacity, groundbreaking GPU architecture, PCIe expansion, Afterburner accelerator card and jaw-dropping design, the new Mac Pro is a monster that will enable pros to do their life’s best work,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

Apple says that an 8TB SSD option will be coming, along with more powerful Single or Dual Radeon Pro W5700X cards with 16 GB of GDDR6 memory.
