Apple Unveils New Miniature Mac Pro with Dual Integrated Workstation GPUs
Today at the WWDC, Apple took the wraps off the new Mac Pro they’ve been working on that will be released later this year. It’s certainly a departure from anything we’ve seen before at the professional level — so read on for more photos and details of the new machine. [Update]: Be sure to check out the newest post detailing more of the features.
Apple is certainly trying to change the game when it comes to professional workstations. The new Mac Pro resembles a fancy desktop speaker, and it’s absolutely tiny compared to the current Mac Pro:
- New Intel Xeon Processor
- Dual Integrated AMD Workstation GPUs (This means you’ll need to use OpenCL with Adobe)
- Have up to three 4K displays on built-in workstation graphics
- Expandable through the newly announced Thunderbolt 2
- Motion-sensing ports that light up when the machine is rotated (to make plugs visible)
- Available later in 2013
- No price announced yet
Here’s the video of the presentation:
