Apple Mac Pro


Sometimes to take a major step forward, you have to completely change direction. Here are the details about the next for the pro computer:-
                                         

Engineered around workstation graphics with dual GPUs, PCI Express-based flash storage, high-performance Thunderbolt 2, new-generation Xeon processors, ultrafast memory and support for 4K video, the new Mac Pro delivers state-of-the-art performance across the board.
           

The new Mac Pro is starting with the new-generation Intel Xeon E5 chipset. With configurations offering up to 12 cores of processing power, up to 40GB/s of PCI Express gen 3 bandwidth, and 256-bit-wide floating-point instructions, you’ll have a great speed.


Every component in the new Mac Pro is optimized for performance. This includes a four-channel DDR3 memory controller running at 1866MHz. It delivers up to 60GB/s of memory bandwidth. Since it’s ECC memory, your render job, video export or simulation won’t be stopped by transient memory errors.


Pro computers generally rely primarily on the CPU for their computing power. But as GPU performance has dramatically increased, software developers have begun to leverage that power in their apps. With the new Mac Pro, we looked ahead and engineered an even more powerful GPU architecture. Not only does it feature a state-of-the-art AMD FirePro workstation-class GPU with up to 6GB of dedicated VRAM, it features two of them. With all this, you’ll be able to do things like seamlessly edit full-resolution 4K video while simultaneously rendering effects in the background and still have enough power to connect up to three high-resolution 4K displays.
         

There’s flash storage and then there’s next-generation PCI Express flash storage. Storage that’s up to 2.5 times faster than the fastest SATA-based solid-state drive and up to 10 times faster than a 7200-rpm SATA hard drive. Most flash storage systems connect via SATA buses designed for slower spinning hard drives. But we designed the new Mac Pro around new PCI Express-based flash controller technology to deliver the fastest solid-state drives available standard in a desktop computer. So booting up, launching apps, even opening massive files happens in a flash.
 

The new Mac Pro packs an unprecedented amount of power in an unthinkable amount of space. A big reason is the ingenious unified thermal core. Instead of using multiple heat sinks and fans to cool the processor and graphics cards, we built everything around a single piece of extruded aluminum designed to maximize airflow as well as thermal capacity. It works by conducting heat away from the CPU and GPUs and distributing that heat uniformly across the core. If one processor isn’t working as hard as the others, the extra thermal capacity can be shared efficiently among them. 
                     

An incredible amount of innovation went into designing a fan system capable of cooling such a high-performance device. Instead of adding extra fans, a single larger fan that pulls air upward through a bottom vent. As air passes vertically through the center of the device, it absorbs heat and carries it out the top. It’s simple and elegant & also astonishingly quiet. To achieve that, the number of blades, the size of the blades, the spacing of the blades, and even the shape of the blades. By minimizing air resistance throughout the system, we were able to design a fan with backward-curved impeller blades that runs at fewer revolutions per minute, draws air more efficiently as it spins, and creates considerably less noise.


In creating a pro computer for the future and provide an enormous amount of expansion, without being limited to the space inside the enclosure. Designed with built‑in Thunderbolt 2, USB 3, Gigabit Ethernet, and HDMI 1.4 ports, Mac Pro sets a new standard in flexible, high-performance expansion. It’s most expandable Mac yet. It has everything you need to build a workstation completely customized to what you need and how you work.

Thunderbolt is the fastest, most versatile I/O technology there is. With Mac Pro, you’re jumping even further ahead. Thunderbolt 2 delivers twice the throughput, providing up to 20Gb/s of bandwidth to each external device. You can connect massive amounts of storage, add a PCI expansion chassis, and work with the latest external displays including 4K desktop displays and peripheral devices capable of broadcast monitoring in 4K. Since each Thunderbolt 2 port allows you to daisy-chain up to six peripherals, you can go all out by plugging in up to 36 external devices via Thunderbolt alone.


Mac Pro equips you with all kinds of connections for all kinds of peripherals. USB 3 gives you the versatility to hook up dozens of different types of external devices. Two Gigabit Ethernet ports let you connect to multiple networks. An HDMI 1.4 port provides support for the latest televisions, projectors and displays, including Ultra HD TVs. But the expandability extends beyond the types of peripherals you can use. As you rotate Mac Pro to plug in a device, it senses the movement and automatically illuminates the I/O panel. So you can easily see the ports you need when you need them.


Access your network over three-stream 802.11ac Wi-Fi for the latest in high-speed wireless connectivity. For all your other wireless connections, Mac Pro includes Bluetooth 4.0. It’s the fastest, most reliable way to connect your keyboard, mouse and other wireless devices without having to physically attach anything.


The new Mac Pro looks unlike any other computer. Because it is unlike any other computer. Since everything centers around a unified thermal core, therefore it is a much leaner, lighter, quieter and far more streamlined structure. Its unique design and beautiful finishes are executed to an extraordinary degree of precision. At just 9.9 inches tall with a diameter of just 6.6 inches, it’s a pro desktop computer that can actually sit on your desk.
