Apple Mac Pro has always been built around a singular vision — to create machines that are as powerful and functional as they are beautiful and intuitive. Apple Mac Pro is a stunning realization of that ideal. All the elements that define a pro computer — graphics, storage, expansion, processing power, and memory — have been rethought and reengineered. So you have the power and performance to bring your biggest ideas to life. Engineered around workstation graphics with dual GPUs, PCIe-based flash storage, high-performance Thunderbolt 2, Intel Xeon processors, fast memory, and support for 4K video, Apple Mac Pro delivers brilliant performance across the board. Apple Mac Pro is muscle, starting with the Intel Xeon E5, available with 6, 8, or 12 cores of processing power on a single die. And with up to 30MB of L3 cache, 40GB/s of PCI Express gen 3 bandwidth, and 256-bit — wide floating — point instructions.
And since it’s ECC memory, your render job, video export, or simulation won’t be stopped by transient memory errors. Traditionally, pro computers have relied primarily on the CPU for their computing power. But as GPU performance has dramatically increased, software developers have begun to leverage that power in their apps. Not only does it feature an AMD FirePro workstation-class GPU — it features two of them. And each is available with up to 6GB of dedicated VRAM with up to 2048 stream processors. With all that power, you’ll be able to do things like seamlessly edit full-resolution 4K video while simultaneously rendering effects in the background — and still have enough power to connect up to three high-resolution 5K displays. Access your network over three-stream 802.11ac Wi-Fi for the latest in high-speed wireless connectivity. For all your other wireless connections, Apple Mac Pro includes Bluetooth 4.0.
Apple Mac Pro — Storage Completely Logical
By leveraging the innovative power of industry-leading companies in Texas, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, and over a dozen other states across America, Apple is able to build a product that’s impeccably constructed and beautiful in every detail. In other words, exactly as it was envisioned by Apple designers and engineers in California. PCI Express-based flash storage is fast — up to 2.4 times faster than the fastest SATA-based solid-state drive. And up to 10 times faster than a 7200-rpm SATA hard drive. Most flash storage systems connect via SATA buses designed for slower spinning hard drives. Apple designed Apple Mac Pro around PCIe-based flash controller technology to deliver the fastest solid-state drives available standard in a desktop computer. So you’ll have up to 1TB of storage that will let you boot up, launch apps, and even open massive files in, well, a flash.
Apple Mac Pro — Thunderbolt 2
Thunderbolt combines PCI Express and DisplayPort into one high-speed, versatile I/O technology. Thunderbolt 2 delivers twice the throughput of Thunderbolt, providing up to 20Gb/s of bandwidth to each external device. So you can connect high-performance peripherals without being limited by the number of expansion slots inside your computer. You can connect massive amounts of storage, add a PCI expansion chassis. And work with the latest external displays-including 4K and 5K desktop displays. As well as peripheral devices capable of broadcast monitoring 4K video. And since each Thunderbolt 2 port allows you to daisy-chain up to six peripherals. You can go all out by plugging in up to 36 external devices via Thunderbolt 2 alone. Apple Mac Pro equips you with all kinds of connections for all kinds of peripherals.
Apple Mac Pro — Unified Thermal Core
Apple Mac Pro packs an unprecedented amount of power in an unthinkable amount of space. A big reason we were able to do that is the ingenious unified thermal core. Rather than using multiple heat sinks and fans to cool the processor and graphics cards. Apple built everything around a single piece of extruded aluminum designed to maximize airflow as well as thermal capacity. It works by conducting heat away from the CPU and GPUs and distributing that heat uniformly across the core. That way, if one processor isn’t working as hard as the others. The extra thermal capacity can be shared efficiently among them. No computer has been built this way before. And yet it makes so much sense, it’s now hard to imagine building one any other way. An incredible amount of innovation went into designing a fan system capable of cooling such a high-performance device.
