Apple’s 2019 Mac Pro has a stainless steel frame which is covered with a box that can be removed easily by just twisting the lever on the top. This will likely make it a lot easier to upgrade than the older models. The company has equipped an Intel Xeon processor that will have up to 28 cores. The processor is assisted by up to 300W of power and heavy-duty cooling, “so it can run unconstrained at full power at all times.” Users can expand the memory to up to 1.5TB with six-channel memory across 12 DIMM slots. There are also eight PCI Express slots. On the user facing side, the Mac Pro comes with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports, and a 3.5mm audio jack.

There are eight internal PCIe slots, four double-wide slots, three single-wide slots, and one additional half-length slot for an I/O card. According to the company, users can fit in AMD’s Radeon Pro Vega 2 or Radeon Pro Vega 2 Duo to increase the efficiency of the system. Apple said that users can add up to two Radeon Pro Vega 2 Duo cards at the same time.

When it comes to processing power, Apple has included a custom hardware called Afterburner. The company claims that with Afterburner, the Mac Pro can play three simultaneous 8K RAW video streams, or 12 4K streams.
