If you need the ultimate in power and expandability, these “cylinder” Mac Pros are for you. Photographers, video producers, audio engineers, graphic designers, and even scientists are raving about these phenomenal, innovative Macs. Radically redesigned and re-engineered, the Mac Pro features latest-generation processing architecture for blazingly fast production that will provide years of unbridled speed and performance.

Mac Pro at a Glance

Dual workstation-class GPUs. State-of-the- art processor. Next-generation flash storage. Ultrafast memory. Unprecedented expansion capabilities. In a radical new design like no computer you’ve seen before. The future of the pro desktop is here.

Black, sleek, and sophisticated, the Mac Pro enhances your workspace with the style and quality only Apple can provide. Impress your friends and family with this powerful machine that looks more like a simple, modern-art sculpture than a computer. No more gargantuan eyesores with tangled, unsightly cords slithering this way and that cluttering your workspace.

Choose style and sophistication with this innovative Mac Pro.

Revolutionary Design

Mac Pro is the professional desktop computer reinvented from the inside out. Arranging the most advanced technologies available around a unified thermal core allowed Apple to make this the most powerful and expandable Mac ever, yet also unbelievably compact and quiet. The thermal core regulates its temperature by uniformly distributing heat to each of the cores. A single, external fan does the rest by keeping the air flowing in from the bottom and out through the top. This ensures every component is cooled without producing a lot of noise, keeping this impressive machine running cool and smoothly throughout the workday. 

The cylindrical, sleek body complements the aesthetics of any workspace. Compact and portable, the Mac Pro measures in at just 9” tall and 6.6” in diameter, so it doesn’t take up too much space. Apple is also proud to have the Mac Pros assembled and tested in the US.

The Mac Pro not just beautiful and efficient, it’s also powerful.

Powerful Multi-Core Processors

The new Mac Pro features the latest Intel Xeon E5 processor, with up to 12-core processing power and a four-channel memory controller providing up to 60GB of memory bandwidth, all on a single die. The innovative Hyper-Threading technology allows each core to run multiple threads of data processing.

With 40 lanes of PCI Express Gen 3 throughput, up to 30MB of L3 cache, and over 500 gigaflops at peak performance, you'll never be at a loss for speed. The Turbo Boost makes sure of that.

To maximize the Mac Pro’s sophisticated processor, the 1866 MHz capacity running through a four-channel DDR3 RAM memory streamlines data processing. Up to 12GB of RAM ensures your programs won’t freeze up or bog you down. Get perfectly executed tasks without disruption by those pesky system errors.

Dual Workstation-Class, Outstanding Graphics

Every new Mac Pro comes standard with dual AMD FirePro workstation-class GPUs, each with up to 6GB of dedicated VRAM and 2048 stream processors, providing up to 264GB of memory bandwidth and up to 3.5 teraflops. That's enough power to edit full-resolution 4K video while simultaneously rendering effects in the background– and still connect up to three 4K displays.

Get incredible performance and brilliant colors for all your high-end production needs. Simple. Straightforward. Fluid workflow. Many things in life interrupt your creative process, but your computer’s performance won’t be one of them.

Faster PCIe-Based Flash Storage

Apple’s innovative flash drive eliminates the need for a traditional moving hard drive that can be damaged if not shut down properly or if the computer is turned on its side while it’s spinning. Next-generation PCIe-based 256GB flash storage is up to 2.4 times faster than SATA-based solid-state drives and up to 10 times faster than a 7200-rpm SATA hard drive. So booting up, launching apps, even opening massive files happens in, well, a flash.

Perform even the most demanding tasks quickly and fluidly with this incredible flash technology. Suddenly, high-end programs, like Photoshop and Final Cut Pro load as quickly as a simple browser or Mail. With the plentiful storage capacity, access all your files –even large video or image files– with alarming speed and eas. And since the flash drive doesn’t spin like a traditional hard drive, do it all in peaceful silence. No more whirring. All this along with the reliability and performance Apple always delivers.

Effective I/O Connectivity & Worry-Free Wireless

Build your dream workstation - without being limited to the space inside the enclosure. Thunderbolt 2 delivers throughput of up to 20GB to each external device. And since each Thunderbolt 2 port allows you to daisy-chain up to six peripherals, you can connect massive amounts of storage, add a PCI Express expansion chassis, and work with the latest 4K displays.

Additionally, the Mac Pro gives you several USB 3 ports for the ability to connect to a wide variety of peripherals. Two (2) Gigabit Ethernet ports allow you to connect directly to a router or other internet source for the fastest possible connection, not to mention the ability to build your own powerful network (or connect to multiple networks).

The HDMI 1.4 port provides the potential and support for cutting-edge TVs, projectors, and displays, even in the dark. When you rotate this innovative machine, it senses the movement and lights up all the I/O ports for your convenience and visibility.

Of course, the Mac Pro also enables you to access your network(s) over three-stream 802.11ac Wi-Fi, giving you the latest and greatest wireless connectivity. But the wireless goodness doesn’t stop there. Pair a plethora of different devices, like speakers, keyboards, trackpads, and mouses, to the onboard 4.0 Bluetooth. Wire-free. Worry-free.
