  • - Hey guys this is Austin and today at WWDC,

  • we can finally say goodbye to the trashcan Mac Pro,

  • and hello to a new brand new modular design,

  • that is sure to cost at least a kidney and a half.

  • So that's get start with the specs first,

  • inside you can spec all the way up

  • to a 28 core Intel Xeon processor

  • up to ridiculous 1.5 terabytes of RAM.

  • As well you can go four Vega GPUs

  • and it all is being powered by a 1,400 watt power supply.

  • Yeah, this thing's extra, but in like the best possible way.

  • The design is reminiscent of the old cheese grater Mac Pro

  • and that is definitely not a bad thing.

  • So it's an entirely stainless chassis

  • and while we're able to get a lot of footage

  • unfortunately we weren't able to shoot inside the computer

  • but I was able the to have a look at it

  • and essentially the entire top comes off

  • and there is a tube frame on the inside,

  • kinda looks like some cool PC cases,

  • and what you'll find there

  • is pretty much everything you would expect.

  • Power supply, you've got a giant motherboard

  • which is a custom form factor, you've got a ton of cooling,

  • and importantly, it does have a full eight PCI slots.

  • So even though this is a Mac Pro

  • you can in theory pretty much plug in

  • anything that is supported by Mac OS and it will work.

  • Graphics cards, expansion cards, you name it.

  • Not only does it have the handles built in

  • but you can even buy wheels for the Mac Pro

  • if you wanna be extra cool.

  • And at this point pretty much all modern Macs

  • thermal throttle to some degree

  • however Apple's been pretty clear

  • that should not be the case with the Mac Pro.

  • So this thing can move 300 cubic feet of air

  • per minute through the system and that is in large part

  • because it has some very large fans up front

  • as well as a series of heat sinks

  • for the CPU, the GPU, and that kind of thing.

  • Now the CPU itself is actually really interesting.

  • With that 28 core Xeon

  • it is rated for up to 300 watts of TDP

  • which in theory means that even with the full 28 cores

  • you should still be well into turbo boost consistently

  • which is really nice to see,

  • especially considering that a lot of these Mac Pros

  • are going to be sitting around is like render farms

  • that will be going at 100% for 24 seven.

  • Unlike most Macs right now,

  • this should actually run at full speed.

  • CPU, GPU, you've got the power

  • and importantly you have the cooling.

  • Now I was able to take a look at some of these Mac Pros

  • which were running some fairly intensive 8K workloads

  • and they sounded quiet and they were quoting

  • it should be somewhere around the iMac Pro

  • as far as levels of noise which is very quiet.

  • So if they're able to pull this off with like

  • 1,400 hundred watts of heat dissipation

  • that's gonna be pretty cool.

  • The graphics are also a big step up.

  • So we do not sadly have any NVIDIA GPU options yet.

  • However by default it will have a Radeon Pro 580X,

  • nothing all that special to be honest

  • but you can configure this

  • with a brand new Radeon Pro Vega 2

  • which I don't even think has been announced yet.

  • Now the cool part about it

  • is that it's all going into an add-in card

  • which in theory you can have up to

  • four of these GPUs running at one time.

  • So Apple calls this the Mac Pro expansion module

  • and to be very clear you don't have to use these,

  • you can plug in standard graphics cards and it will work

  • but these expansion modules will allow you to incorporate

  • two GPUs into one module.

  • But the nice thing is that with two of these modules

  • you're getting something like, what was it,

  • 128 gigs of RAM on your 4 Vega GPUs.

  • Yeah, this thing's got a lot of memory.

  • Although fun fact, even though

  • you can get like 1.5 terabytes of RAM

  • and like 128 gigs of graphics memory

  • this thing by default chips the tomb in 56 gig SSD.

  • - [Cameraman] You can have like the big arms

  • but like though really like scrawny legs.

  • - The Mac Pro is like Spongebob.

  • It's like you inflate your arms

  • but you still have a little scrawny legs,

  • yeah, that's exactly what the Mac Pro's like

  • each of these modules has a 500 watt TDP

  • and one of the things I really like about this

  • is sort of the best of both worlds.

  • So you get the Apple magic with the Thunderbolt backplate

  • and the multiple GPUs in one card,

  • that's a loud plane, may we continue?

  • But on top of that,

  • if you don't want to use any of that stuff

  • just throwing your own graphics card.

  • As long as there are drivers that are supported

  • that's all you need to make sure this Mac Pro

  • will be working for a long time to come.

  • And in fact Apple really it reiterated that

  • and that this should be

  • the Mac Pro chassis that we see for quite a while, right.

  • So they want to have this with maximum flexibility,

  • not only for you as the user but for them as a company.

  • So as new things come out

  • it's really simple for them to swap out a new Xeon

  • or put in a new graphics card or whatever the case is,

  • there's plenty of expansion here for the future.

  • We live in a new era where computers get updated every year.

  • Now in addition to the graphics modules

  • there are a couple of other add-on cards

  • which are direct from Apple that will be available soon.

  • So first of all there's the Afterburner,

  • this is very much focused on the video side of things.

  • So it's a programmable FPGA

  • which specifically in something like Final Cut

  • can allow you to do something stupid

  • like a triple stream 8K video playback

  • with like effects and stuff.

  • Now this is probably a little bit

  • over the top for most people

  • but there are also some other add-on cards,

  • like one that is probably gonna come maybe not stock

  • but at least going to come on most configurations

  • which in addition to the two Thunderbolt 3

  • and two USB-A that are on top of the system

  • will give you an additional two Thunderbolt, two USB,

  • as well as a headphone jack on the back.

  • Although to be clear,

  • this actually is not a standard feature

  • and you can still buy a Mac Pro without a headphone jack.

  • But, pretty sure everyone's gonna get that one

  • 'cause that seems pretty important.

  • What's nice about the new Mac Pro

  • is that it is modular for an actual reason.

  • So unlike the last generation Mac Pro

  • which was a clever design

  • but really wasn't quite fully fleshed out

  • this is something which I do think will have a lot of legs

  • and will be able to be very usable into the future.

  • Which makes sense because as I mentioned earlier

  • it does not come cheap.

  • Speaking of expensive, Apple also announced

  • their brand new Pro Display XDR,

  • which is a very awkward name,

  • but this is a 6K monitor which will work with the Mac Pro

  • as well as things such as the MacBook

  • and I assume other devices with Thunderbolt

  • a little bit later.

  • But unfortunately, this display starts at $5,000.

  • And that's not counting the $1000 stand.

  • To be fair, that stand is not directly important,

  • you can put it on other stands,

  • but this thing does not come cheap

  • which to me makes a little bit of a niche option.

  • And when you compare it to something

  • like a high-end reference monitor

  • which can cost literally 30, 40, $50,000,

  • this actually stacks up fairly well.

  • But for most people like you and I

  • who want to use like a 5K Thunderbolt display

  • which is a very, very nice panel,

  • it's still significantly cheaper.

  • John, why? - Sorry, buddy.

  • - Mac Pro, thoughts?

  • - Yeah, it's awesome. - Okay, cool.

  • - Looks like a cheese grater. - Yeah.

  • - Can you buy me one? - No.

  • - You can, Mystery Tech.

  • - No, no, no, no no no no, no, no no no.

  • So the new Mac Pro goes on sale later this year

  • starting at a mere $6,000

  • and that my friends is for the eight core model.

  • If you want to upgrade to this Vega graphics

  • and like the million core Xeon processor

  • and a terabyte and a half of RAM

  • expect this to cost the same price as a compact car.

  • But I've got to say, I'm still really excited.

  • Now do I need a Mac Pro?

  • Absolutely not, do I need that new monitor?

  • Totally not, I can edit on my MacBook Pro

  • like this video that I'm editing right now.

  • But uh, do I want one?
