Mac Pro with Afterburner Card

Product Description

Encased within an aluminum housing that completely lifts off for 360° access to the entire system, Apple has completely redesigned the Mac Pro, creating a modular tower system that delivers performance, expansion, and configurability. Designed for professionals who want to push the limits of what a Mac can do, the Mac Pro will serve those who require extreme CPU performance for workflows such as production rendering, 3D film animation, 8K compositing, building complex 3D environments, analyzing huge data sets, running multiple pro applications, playing hundreds of virtual instruments, simulating an app on a dozen iOS devices simultaneously, and other large projects. With a six-channel memory architecture, twelve physical memory slots, and eight PCIe slots, you'll be able to customize and expand the Mac Pro in ways not previously possible.

This Mac Pro is powered by a 2.5 GHz Intel Xeon W 28-Core processor and 24.5MB of cache memory. The processor can be overclocked to 4.4 GHz, and there is also 192GB of 2933 MHz DDR4 ECC memory. For storage of your files, there is a 1TB NVMe SSD. Encrypted by the Apple T2 security chip, the SSD module delivers sequential read speeds of up to 2.6 GB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 2.7 GB/s. Visuals are handled by dual AMD Radeon Pro Vega II graphics cards. Graphics performance is further boosted by the included Afterburner card, which accelerates ProRes and ProRes RAW codecs in Final Cut Pro X and QuickTime Player X. It can also playback up to three streams of 8K ProRes RAW or twelve streams of 4K ProRes RAW.

Additional connectivity is provided by Apple's half-length PCIe 3.0 x4 I/O card, which offers two 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports and two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports, which use the USB Type-C interface and support 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2/3.2 Gen 2 and DisplayPort. The top of the system has two more Thunderbolt 3 ports and all Thunderbolt 3 ports are supported by DisplayPort connections stemming from the GPU. Wired network connectivity is established using dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports for a more reliable and stable connection, or take advantage of Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) for wireless connectivity, and pair wireless peripherals with your system via Bluetooth 5.0.

Apple's Mac Pro includes their Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad, Magic Mouse 2, a USB Type-C to Lightning cable, and a power cord. Protection is provided by a limited 1-year warranty and 90 days of free technical support.

This Mac comes preloaded with macOS. Updates can be downloaded for free via the Mac App Store. Please check Apple's website for upgrade eligibility.
