Originally unveiled earlier this summer, Apple‘s long-awaited Mac Pro is set to officially drop this very week. Aimed at professionals as a top-of-the-line desktop and effectively the most powerful and customizable computer ever offered by Apple, the cylindrical design pairs a unified thermal core with a surrounding organization of the most advanced technologies available. Boasting an Intel Xeon E5 processor with up to 12-core processing power and a four-channel memory controller that provides up to 60GB/s of memory bandwidth, the new Mac features 40 lanes of the latest PCIe throughput, up to 30MB of L3 cache, and over 500 gigaflops at peak performance – not to mention dual AMD FirePro workstation-class GPUs with up to 6GB each of dedicated VRAM and 2048 stream processors, 256GB of configurable PCIe-based on-board flash storage, a combined optical/digital audio output/analog line out minijack, HDMI 1.4 UltraHD, Dual Gigabit Ethernet, six Thunderbolt 2 ports, four USB 3.0 ports, and a built-in speaker. A full breakdown of the Mac Pro’s immense power can be perused via Apple.com while the desktop is set to be available both in Apple Stores and online beginning this Thursday, December 19 with prices starting at $2,999 USD.
