During its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, Apple unveiled the long-awaited new Mac Pro desktop, full with a radical and stylish redesign.

Of course, design is not really everything, and the Mac Pro packs a great deal of punch into its small cylindrical frame, which Apple claimed would provide ‘breakthrough performance’ at one-eighth the size of present Mac Pros desktops.

Let us take a more detailed take a look at just exactly what makes the brand-new Mac Pro a desktop worth getting ecstatic about.

New Mac Pro release date

It’s been a while since Apple’s dropped a desktop this revolutionary on consumers, and we cannot wait to see what the Mac Pro is in fact qualified when we get our hands on one.

The specific release date of the new Mac Pro is not clear, but OS X Mavericks must be coming out in October, so who’s to state that we will not be getting the brand-new Mac Pro at the exact same time, possibly together with Intell Haswell Core i5 and i7-powered MacBook Pros.

Mac Pro specifications

Apple was not squeamish about breaking the Mac Pro vulnerable to give everybody a glance at the innards powering the 9.9-inch desktop.

The Mac Pro brings the noise with Intel Xeon E5 processors (look into this older-gen Xeon E5 testimonial), which in turn are capable of supporting up to 12 core configurations to provide two times the drifting point performance.

Coupled with a pair of AMD FirePro workstation-class GPUs, the new Mac Pro is even more than ready to deal with up to 7 teraflops of calculations, and delivers rates more than 2 times faster than present generation Mac Pros.

More impressively, Apple is including 1,866 MHz DDR3 RAM in the revamped Mac Pro, which gives it the capability to deliver up to 60GBps of memory bandwidth.

With that kind of power, the Mac Pro is a filmmaker’s dream, as it’s able to render full-resolution 4K video, while also working out rendering effects on the side.

All of this hardware is built around a merged thermal core, which will give the Mac Pro the advantage of dispersing that thermal capacity throughout all the processors equally.

Mac Pro Thunderbolt and more

A desktop wouldn’t be any excellent without a huge selection of ports, and the Mac Pro has them in spades.

There are 6 Thunderbolt 2 ports, each efficient in supporting 6 daisy-chained devices, suggesting you could’ve up to 36 different external devices hooked up to the Mac Pro with convenience.

Add in the fact Thunderbolt 2 enables up to 20GBs of bandwidth to each plugged device, and you have got yourself outstanding external performance nearly unusual to this point.

Even if you don’t have a wealth of Thunderbolt 2-compatible external hard disk drives or screens, the Mac Pro’s ports are completely in reverse suitable with existing Thunderbolt connections, meaning you won’t have to upgrade every last gadget you already have.

After all we have seen up until now, we are inclined to believe Apple when it calls the Mac Pro ‘the most radical Mac yet.’
