Apple has confirmed that their new Mac Pro will be available to order from today. The machine was first shown off at the WWDC in June earlier this year leaving a number of fans mesmerized over its innovative design and specifications.
The latest generation of the Mac Pro has been totally redesigned by Apple and features an aluminium enclosure in the shape of a cylinder measuring 9.9-inches tall and is actually just one-eighth the size of its predecessor. It includes six Thunderbolt 2 ports, each with up to 20Gbps of bandwidth per device, and supports up to 36 high-performance peripherals, including 4K displays.
The Mac Pro is available in different specifications including one with a 3.7 GHz quad-core Intel Xeon E5 processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.9 GHz, dual AMD FirePro D300 GPUs with 2GB of VRAM each, 12GB of memory, and 256GB of PCIe-based flash storage. There is another option that includes a 3.5 GHz 6-core Intel Xeon E5 processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.9 GHz, dual AMD FirePro D500 GPUs with 3GB of VRAM each, 16GB of memory, and 256GB of PCIe-based flash storage.
Apple is also offering configure-to-order options which include faster 8-core or 12-core Intel Xeon E5 processors, AMD FirePro D700 GPUs with 6GB of VRAM, up to 64GB of memory, and up to 1TB of PCIe-based flash storage.
The all-new Mac Pro will be available to order from today through select Apple Authorised Resellers starting at Rs.2,29,900. Apple has yet to confirm as to when the product will actually start shipping to the customers.
According to reports, as part of a (RED) charity auction, a red Mac Pro was sold for $977,000 last month.
