Insane new Mac Pro packs 28-core processor

Apple just unveiled the Mac Pro desktop we’ve been waiting for

The base Mac Pro packs an 8-core processor, 32GB of memory, Radeon Pro 580X graphics, and 256GB SSD, and it'll cost $5,999 when it launches this fall.

But the most drastic changes are under the hood, with an upgradeable, expandable design that will let users not only access all of the internals - something the 2018 iMac Pro didn't do - and providing room for upgrades and configuration changes, which were hard (and sometimes outright impossible) on the compact Mac Pro 2013. Apple will offer a custom "MPX Module" that plugs into that port, providing a 4-wide PCIe housing with support for two GPUs. And if you're feeling lucky, you can add up to two Radeon Pro Vega II Duos, which will give you quad GPUs maxing out at 56 TFLOPS.

Breathe easy, haze not caused by Alberta wildfires
Meanwhile, people in Edmonton spent most of Thursday dealing with a thick, smoky haze that turned otherwise blue skies an eerie grey-orange.


The all-new Mac Pro features "workstation-class" Xeon processors up to 28 cores, a high-performance memory system with 1.5TB capacity, eight PCIe expansion slots and a graphics architecture featuring what Apple claims is "the world's most powerful graphics card". The system also includes an "Afterburner graphics ASIC", which can handle "6 billion pixels per second" or playback three simultaneous streams with raw 8K footage.

Behold, the new Mac Pro. Instead of the "mesh" front, the new Mac Pro has a lattice of larger holes in the exterior stainless steel casing. And if you want to set the Mac Pro on the floor, but still be able to easily move the tower, you can attach optional wheels.

Flags In Maine At Half-Staff Until Tuesday For Virginia Shooting Victims
Alexander Mikhail "Alex" Gusev , 35, of Virginia Beach, was a right-of-way agent who had worked for the city for nine years. He - if - I told my son, if he had the gun behind his back, and he walked up to me, I would've gone up and talked to him.


One things pros had been asking for that didn't show up on stage? Missing in all of this is any word on Nvidia GPU support, though. It releases the occasional iMac, but there's still a market for the company's ultra-high-end desktop computers. These two new products are of course expensive, with the new Mac Pro starting at $5,999 (approximately Rs. 4,14,438) while the Pro Display XDR will start at $4,999 (approximately Rs. 3,45,353) not including the stand. It was an innovative design, for sure, but it sealed in components and was nearly impossible to upgrade. Bonus: it also looks like a cheese grater from the front.

Apple said the display boasts 1,600 nits of peak brightness and a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. The motherboard includes a new Thunderbolt 3 connection for the addition of new components. The new Mac Pro can drive up to six 6K Pro Display XDR monitors.

Jared Kushner defends not telling Federal Bureau of Investigation about Trump Tower meeting
As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before. "Did you wish he didn't do that?" asked Swan. Pompeo did express hope, however, that the deal was not simply dismissed out of hand, the Post reported.


The high-end Mac Pro with all the fancy hardware will cost an obscene amount of money, although we don't know how obscene. The stand will go for $999 and, if you have your own third-party stand, you'll still need to plunk down $199 for the VESA adapter.
