Apple has announced that its new cheese-grater Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR (the one with that infamous $999 stand) will be available for purchasing on December 10. According to an email that was sent out by the company, orders will begin on that date, but it isn’t clear when the products will actually begin shipping. The Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR start at a whopping $6,000 and $5,000, respectively.
The Mac Pro was designed with a heavy focus on upgradeability and expansion, and it features a traditional PC shape with an Apple-esque stainless steel frame with a lattice pattern that maximizes airflow. Internal specs include workstation-class Xeon processors with up to 28 cores, up to 1.5TB of high-performance memory, up to two Radeon Pro II Duo GPUs, and eight PCIe expansion slots, along with an Apple Afterburner accelerator card.
