Apple’s new Mac Pro received an FCC approval just ahead of its release.
As previously claimed by Apple, Mac Pro would be released sometime ‘this fall’. According to the FCC filing, the new device already has an A1991 model number.
Identically to the previous Apple laptops, the new Mac Pros will also be manufactured in Austin, Texas.
Due to the fact that it eschewed expandability in favor of a sleek all-in-one cylindrical design, the 2013 Mac Pro was rather controversial in the pro-market. Although the machine’s design hit what it called a ‘thermal corner’, Apple never updated it.
A few months ago, Apple announced the new Mac Pro which leads to the beloved cheese-grater tower generation. The price of the new machine will start from $5999 with an 8-core Intel Xeon processor, 256 GB SSD, AMD Radeon 580X graphics card, and 32 GB RAM.
To address the thermal issues, Apple created the new chassis to support a wide range of hardware with custom fans for airflow and a 1.4-kilowatt power supply.
The new chassis will allow for the machine to speed up to the limit, featuring up to a 28-core CPU, 4 GPUs and 1.5 TB of RAM. Also, unlike most Macs, the Mac Pro will support aftermarket upgrades, though their price is yet to be announced.
Together with the new Mac Pro, Apple also presented the companion Pro Display XDR. This product is aimed at professionals and costs $6000.
The Pro Display XDR is a 32-inch LCD panel featuring an extreme dynamic range, supporting up to 1000 nits of sustained peak brightness.
In terms of quality, Apple compared the product to video reference monitors, which can easily cost more than $20,000.
