Ending a six-year drought for creative professionals, Apple introduced the all-new Mac Pro and unveiled Apple "Pro Display XDR", touted as the world's best pro display. Creatives have for a long time been relying on the Mac Pro which is one of the most powerful desktops available and is perfect for high intensity workspaces.
The Mac Pro can run three streams of 8K video and 12 streams of 4K video in real time, virtually eliminating proxy workflows. It features workstation-class Xeon processors up to 28 cores, a high-performance memory system with a massive 1.5 TB capacity, eight PCIe expansion slots and a graphics architecture featuring the world's most powerful graphics card.
Pro Display XDR features a massive 32-inch Retina 6K display, an extreme 1,600 nits of peak brightness, an incredible 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and a super-wide viewing angle.
"Pro Display XDR is the world's best pro display and the perfect companion to the all-new Mac Pro," said Phil Schiller, Apple's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing. The new Mac Pro that supports up to six displays for a breathtaking 120 million pixels would be available in the fall.
Apart from that, the Mac Pro also has a revamped design that allows for better thermals which lead to a better performance overall. Since the screen has a wide colour gamut, there’s no denying that it will be perfect for photo and video editors along with graphic designers too.
Though the price of the desktop is massive ($5,999) it still is a viable option for anyone looking for a computer that will last them a long time, without faltering much. Sure the computer isn’t for the average consumer, but it does manage to please the class that it is made for.
At any rate, we’re excited to see that Apple has finally revamped its lineup and can’t wait to get our hands on one of these powerful machines.
