The brand-new Mac Pro is the most pricey Apple computer we’ve actually gotten our hands on, so we have not aspired to disassemble it. Fortunately, somebody was up to the sketchy task.
The initially understood Mac Pro late 2013 teardown reveals that Apple’s component-packed ‘trash bin’ has a processor that’s socketed, according to Various other World Computing.
This implies that the Intel Xeon CPU in the Mac Pro is easily detachable, opening the door approximately future upgrades.
‘The Intel Xeon E5 processor found in the Mac Pro is indeed detachable,’ noted Various other World Computer system to Mac Rumors.
‘All 4 offered CPUs for the brand-new Mac Pro utilize the same LGA 2011 socket standardized on the Mac Pro’s motherboard.’
Mac Pro CPU update a relief for pros
The reality that the Mac Pro CPU appears to be upgradeable is excellent information for experts who plan to continue this cylinder-shaped computer around for a while.
Apple customers can safely order the quad-core entry-level design for the not-so-entry-level price of $2,999 (about ₤ 2,499, AU$ 3,999) without regretting it in the future.
That has not always been the case with Apple computer systems. The business has soldered both the CPUs and RAM parts of its MacBook Pro Retina and MacBook Air lineup for a slimmer profile.
That doesn’t appear to be the case according to today’s teardown. No word if the disassembly group had the ability to put Humpty Dumpty back together again.
