MAC PRO: A PROFESSIONAL BEAST


Mac Pro has stepped itself to a new level after the latest 2019 release. The machine begins with a price point at $5,999; for the basic configuration with an 8-core Intel Xenon processor(CPU), Radeon 580X graphics processor (GPU) and 32 GB of ECC memory(RAM). It obviously does give high CPU performance with such specs. In addition, large L2 and shared L3 caches and 64 PCI Express lanes provide bandwidth in and out of the processor. It does have huge heat sinks which do provide efficient cooling. The Pro also provides up to 1.5 TB of memory. There are five versions of the Mac Pro starting from the base of 8-core following 12-core, 16-core, 24-core, and the highest capability of 28-core. These specs help in the better and smoother functioning of professional apps. The system also consists of four double-wide slots, three single-wide slots, and one half-length slot pre-configured with the Apple I/O card (twice as many slots as the previous Mac tower). The new MPX module can sustain up to 475 watts of power. Which also means they have the “world’s most powerful graphics card” (mentioned on apple.com).


The Pro is a supporter of the 8K displays. The beast has an Apple T2 security chip; maximum storage of up to 8 TB (memory is different). Not to mention, it features four Thunderbolt 3, two USB-A ports, and two 10 GB Ethernet ports. Its massive power supply is 1.4 kilowatts. Well, the most powerful Pro is going all the way up to $53,799 making itself unique. The Mac Pro is surely a beast but, as I said it’s only meant for the extreme professional.
