Say hello to a Mac that is extreme in every way. With the greatest performance, expansion, and configurability yet, it is a system created to let a wide range of professionals push the limits ofwhat is possible.
Function defines form.
Every aspect of Mac Pro is designed in pursuit of performance. Built around a stainless steel space frame, an aluminum housing lifts off, allowing 360-degree access to every component and vast configuration. From there anything is possible.
PROCESSOR AND MEMORY.
Up to 28 cores of power. Create without constraint.
Mac Pro is designed for pros who need the ultimate in CPU performance. From production rendering to playing hundreds of virtual instruments to simulating an iOS app on multiple devices at once, it’s exceedingly capable. At the heart of the system is an Intel Xeon processor with up to 28 cores — the most ever in a Mac. In addition, large L2 and shared L3 caches and 64 PCI Express lanes provide massive bandwidth in and out of the processor.
Forget everything you know about memory.
A multicore workstation processor needs lots of memory to feed it. Featuring six channels of superfast ECC memory and 12 physical DIMM slots, Mac Pro allows for up to 1.5TB of memory. So pros working with large projects, analyzing huge data sets, or running multiple pro applications can make fast work out of all kinds of work. And while typical towers cram memory into hard-to-reach places, Mac Pro utilizes a two-sided logic board, making it easy to access.
Extreme performance. By design.
For many pros, a high-performance graphics architecture is critical to their workflows. Especially for tasks like animating 3D film assets, compositing 8K scenes, and building lifelike gaming environments. To give them the highest possible performance and take graphics capabilities to a new level, something groundbreaking was required. Introducing the Mac Pro Expansion Module, or MPX Module.
Apple Afterburner. Blaze through 8K video.
Created to transform the workflow for film and video professionals, Afterburner allows you to go straight from camera to timeline and work natively with 4K and even 8K files from the start. No more time-consuming transcoding, storage overhead, or errors during output. Proxy workflows, RIP.
Apple T2 Security Chip.
Data on Mac Pro is protected by the Apple T2 Security Chip. It integrates a Secure Enclave coprocessor and discrete controllers into a single chip. It also ensures that the lowest levels of software aren’t tampered with and that only operating system software trusted by Apple loads at startup.
Up to 8TB storage.²
To deliver the fastest possible performance, Mac Pro is built on an all-flash storage architecture. It starts with a 256GB SSD and is configurable to a 1TB, 2TB, 4TB, or 8TB SSD — all encrypted by the T2 chip.
HIGH SPEED AND CONNECTIONS
Powerful I/O at hand.
Mac Pro has extremely high performance I/O, and lots of it. It begins with four Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports, and two 10Gb Ethernet ports. And with every MPX Module you add you get more capability. Connect up to twelve 4K displays or up to six Pro Display XDRs from Apple and see your work with over 120 million pixels. It’s now easy to expand at will.
Different form. Same powerful factors.
Mac Pro is also available in a rack mount — with all the same performance features and configuration options as the tower — for spaces better suited to a rack design. The rack mount features the airflow-maximizing 3D lattice and stainless steel handles on the front and tool-less stainless steel slide rails in place of feet or optional wheels.
Find the right Mac for you.
1. Testing conducted by Apple in November 2019 using preproduction 2.5GHz 28-core Intel Xeon W-based Mac Pro systems with 384GB of RAM and dual AMD Radeon Pro Vega II graphics with Infinity Fabric Link and 32GB of HBM2 each, configured with Afterburner and a 4TB SSD. Mac Pro systems tested with an attached 5K display. Tested with Final Cut Pro 10.4.7 using a 50-second picture-in-picture project with 6 streams of Apple ProRes RAW video at 8192×4320 resolution and 29.97 frames per second, a 50-second picture-in-picture project with 23 streams of Apple ProRes RAW video at 4096×2160 resolution and 29.97 frames per second, and a 5-minute picture-in-picture project with 16 streams of Apple ProRes 422 video at 4096×2160 resolution and 30 frames per second. Performance tests are conducted using specific computer systems and reflect the approximate performance of Mac Pro.
