Apple's New Mac Pro will be Available for Sale Tomorrow Starting at $2,999

Apple has just announced that it's all new Mac Pro line will be available to order starting tomorrow, Thursday, December 19. Customers can buy the new Mac Pro tomorrow at starting price of $2,999 through Apple retail stores, online store and also via the authorized select dealers. Another Mac Pro model with advanced specs will also be available for sale at $3,999. Customers can also place custom orders using configure-to-order options for more advanced Mac Pro with additional technical specifications but at higher prices.  

Apple has completely designed and assembled the new Mac Pro in the US. The all new Mac Pro has an aluminum body that is designed around an innovative unified thermal core. It is just 9.9-inches tall. New Mac Pro is 8 times less in volume than the previous generation. All the versions of new Mac Pro features the latest Intel Xeon processors, dual workstation-class AMD FirePro GPUs that delivers almost 8 times higher graphics performance than the previous generation Mac Pros. 

PCIe-based flash storage is also there that delivers up to 10 times faster sequential read speeds than conventional desktop hard drives and ultra-fast ECC DDR3 memory provides up to 60GBps of memory bandwidth for seamlessly editing full-resolution 4K video while simultaneously rendering effects in the background. There are also present 6 Thunderbolt 2 ports, each with up to 20Gbps of bandwidth per device. "The new Mac Pro completely redefines desktop expandability with support for up to 36 high-performance peripherals, including the latest 4K displays," says Apple.

The $2,999 Mac Pro will include a 3.7 GHz quad-core Intel Xeon E5 processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.9 GHz. Other specifications include two AMD FirePro D300 GPUs with 2GB of VRAM in each GPU, 12GB of system memory and 256GB of PCIe-based flash storage. 

The $3,999 Mac Pro will include a 3.5 GHz 6-core Intel Xeon E5 processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.9 GHz. This model will again include dual AMD processors. But these two will be the D500 FirePro GPUs that will have 3GB of VRAM per unit. Other specs include the 16GB of system RAM and 256GB of PCIe-based flash storage.

Customers can also place orders with custom specifications. But they have to pay more than $3,999 for adding the more advanced technical specifications via configure-to-order options. Customers can include faster 8-core or 12-core Intel Xeon E5 processors, AMD FirePro D700 GPUs with 6GB of dedicated RAM, up to 64GB of system memory, and up to 1TB of PCIe-based flash storage.
