A unique vision. Designed for yours
Mac has always been built around a singular vision: to create machines that are as powerful and functional as they are beautiful and intuitive. Mac Pro is a stunning realization of that ideal.
All the elements that define a pro computer - graphics, storage, expansion, processing power, and memory - have been rethought and reengineered. So you have the power and performance to bring your biggest ideas to life.
Engineered around workstation graphics with dual GPUs, PCIe-based SSD storage, high-performance Thunderbolt 2, Xeon processors, fast memory, and support for 4K video, Mac Pro delivers brilliant performance across the board.
Mac Pro is muscle through and through, starting with Intel Xeon E5, available with 6, 8, or 12 cores of processing power on a single die.
And with up to 30MB of L3 cache, 40GB/sec. of PCI Express Gen 3 bandwidth, and 256-bit-wide floating-point instructions, you'll never be at a loss for speed.
Every component in Mac Pro is optimized for performance. That includes a four-channel DDR3 memory controller running at 1866MHz.
It supports up to 64GB of memory and delivers up to 60GB/sec. of memory bandwidth, which means you can fly through compute-intensive tasks in no time.
And since it's ECC memory, your render job, video export, or simulation won't be stopped by transient memory errors.
Traditionally, pro computers have relied primarily on the CPU for their computing power. But as GPU performance has dramatically increased, software developers have begun to leverage that power in their apps.
Mac Pro has an even more powerful GPU architecture. Not only does it feature an AMD FirePro workstation-class GPU, it features two of them.
And each is available with up to 6GB of dedicated VRAM with up to 2048 stream processors.
With all that power, you'll be able to do things, such as seamlessly editing full-resolution 4K video while simultaneously rendering effects in the background, and still have enough power to connect up to three high-resolution 5K displays.
PCI Express-based SSD storage is fast - up to 2.4 times faster than SATA-based solid-state drive and up to 10 times faster than a 7200 rpm SATA hard drive.
Mac Pro was designed around PCIe-based SSD controller technology to deliver fast solid-state drives. So you'll have up to 1TB of storage that will let you boot up, launch apps, and even open massive files in a flash.
A unified thermal core
Mac Pro packs an unprecedented amount of power in an unthinkable amount of space.
Rather than using multiple heat sinks and fans to cool the processor and graphics cards, Mac Pro is built around a single piece of extruded aluminum designed to maximize airflow as well as thermal capacity.
It works by conducting heat away from the CPU and GPUs and distributing that heat uniformly across the core. That way, if one processor isn't working as hard as the others, the extra thermal capacity can be shared efficiently among them.
A single breakthrough fan
Instead of adding extra fans, Mac Pro features a single, larger fan that pulls air upward through a bottom intake. As air passes vertically through the center of the device, it absorbs heat and carries it out the top.
It's simple and elegant, and also astonishingly quiet. The fan has backward-curved impeller blades, and runs at fewer revolutions per minute, draws air more efficiently as it spins, and creates considerably less noise.
