Apple’s Mac Pro Granted FCC Approval
Apple’s upcoming redesigned Mac Pro has just been granted final approval from the FCC, strongly suggesting its imminent launch.
Apple’s website still says the all-new Mac Pro computer is “coming this fall”, but this recent development could indicate a much sooner release date.
It will be powered with 28-core Intel Xeon processors and comes with up to 1.5TB of ECC RAM, up to 4TB of SSD storage, up to AMD Radeon Pro Vega II Duo graphics with 64GB of HBM2 memory, and has eight PCIe expansion slots for maximum performance, expansion and configurability.
The Mac Pro will also sport a new design, which includes a stainless-steel frame with smooth handles and an aluminium housing that lifts off for 360-degree access to the entire system and has a unique lattice pattern to maximise airflow and quiet operation.
Networking is provided by a pair of 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports and 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 5.0 is also available.
In terms of price, the new Mac Pro is tipped to start at US$5,999 for a model with an eight-core Intel Xeon processor, 32GB of ECC Ram, Radeon Pro 580X graphics, and 256GB of SSD storage.
Apple is also planning a 32-inch Pro Display XDR model with 6K resolution for US$4,999, with an optional stand for US$999.
