Apple’s new and improved Mac Pro is the fastest Mac ever, thanks to the up to 12 processing cores. The new Mac has almost 50 percent more power than the previous models and it also comes with plenty of memory – up to 32 GB of fast DDR3.
The new Mac Pro features the latest quad-core and six-core Intel Xeon processors, the Quad-Core Intel Xeon Nehalem or the Intel Xeon Westmere for four to six cores. The system maxes out at 12 cores – two six-core Intel Xeon Westmere processors – at up to 2.93 GHz. On the graphics front, the Mac Pro adds new ATI Radeon HD 5770 or 5870 cards with 1 GB of GDDR5 memory and support for up to six displays. The new Mac Pro has access to a dual 16-lane PCI Express 2.0 graphics slot, to boot.
Apple also updated its all-in-one iMac line with the latest Intel Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7. The dual core chips run up to 3.6 GHz, while quad-core speeds are up to 2.93 GHz. Discrete graphics include the ATI Radeon HD 5750.
According to Apple, the new Mac Pro will be available from resellers and hit retail store shelves in August. The suggested retail price for the quad-core Mac Pro starts at $2,499, while the new 8-core Mac Pro starts at $3,499. Both come with a host of configure-to-order options to beef up the system.
