Apple announced a new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR way back in June 2019 at WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference). The tech giant later confirmed that it would be available in December but no specific date was announced for it. According to emails sent out to customers, Apple’s most powerful desktop computer will available for pre-order starting December 10 in the United States. “High-end Mac will be up for pre-ordering next week,’” the ‘save the date’ emails by the iPhone maker read. This is the first confirmation of an actual date regarding the release date of the new Mac Pro along with Pro Display XDR.
Notably, the emails just say that the Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR will be only ‘available to order’ on December 10. This means that shipping may take longer than this. The Mac Pro, which starts at the price of USD 5,999, is not for everyday users. In fact, it has been especially designed to cater to a select few customers like video editors, musicians, artists. The price of the Pro Display XDR will begin at USD 4,999. Apart from this, buyers will have to pay USD 1,000 for a display stand. The whole setup, including a desktop, stand along with a base version of the Mac Pro and the Pro Display XDR, will cost around USD 10,000. It would be a lot of money for a desktop, but this isn’t too much for a movie studio or a gaming studio.
Mac Pro is a powerful desktop computer and comes with the upgrade and expansion option, which would be a good deal for professional users. In terms of specifications, it boasts up to 28-core Intel Xeon processors, up to 4TB of SSD storage, up to 1.5TB of internal memory, 64GB of HBM2 memory, eight PCIe expansion slots, workstation-class Intel Xenon processors and AMD Radeon Pro Vega II Duo graphics. The desktop computer case is made of aluminum and has a stainless steel frame. Pro Display XDR is a 32-inch 6K monitor and is designed as a companion to the Mac Pro. Apple claims that the screen is the largest Retina Display ever. The all-new Mac Pro is being manufactured at Apple’s facility in Austin, Texas.
