Apple’s latest flagship computer, the Mac Pro, hasn’t yet been made available to the general public; the company says the new Mac Pro will become available to buy next month in the UK.
Apple’s new high end desktop system will be priced starting at £2,499 for the 3.7GHz Quad-Core base model, with a second tier of performance beginning at £3,299 for the 3.5GHz 6-Core.
The new Mac Pro is powered by an Intel Xeon E5 CPU configurable to 3.0GHz 8-core processor with 25MB L3 cache or 2.7GHz 12-core processor with 30MB L3 cache, and standard dual AMD FirePro GPUs, packed in cylinder with a 6.6 inch diameter and cooled by an innovative, central thermal core designed to pull heat away from the primary processing chips and pushed out the top.
Apple detailed the new Mac Pro’s design process in a video it presented at its iPad event last month (above). Apple’s head of operations Jeff Williams explained, “To make a product as advanced as the Mac Pro, we had to pioneer entirely new processes.”
