Power to change everything. 

Say hello to a Mac that is extreme in every way. With the greatest performance, expansion and configurability yet, it is a system created to let a wide range of professionals push the limits of what is possible.

ALL-NEW DESIGN

Function defines form. 

Every aspect of Mac Pro is designed in pursuit of performance. Built around a stainless steel space frame, an aluminium housing lifts off, allowing for 360-degree access to every component and vast configuration. From there anything is possible.

PROCESSOR AND MEMORY

Up to 28 cores of power. Create without constraint. 

Mac Pro is designed for pros who need the ultimate in CPU performance. From production rendering to playing hundreds of virtual instruments to simulating an iOS app on multiple devices at once, it’s exceedingly capable. At the heart of the system is an Intel Xeon processor with up to 28 cores — the most ever in a Mac. In addition, large L2 and shared L3 caches and 64 PCI Express lanes provide massive bandwidth in and out of the processor.

Engineered to go all out. All the time. 

Squeezing every possible iota of performance out of the processor means giving it a lot of power. In this case, over 300 watts. A massive heat sink keeps the system cool, enabling it to run fully unconstrained. Heat pipes move heat away from the chip, dispersing it along aluminium fin stacks. While three axial fans move air through the system.

Forget everything you know about memory. 

A multicore workstation processor needs lots of memory to feed it. Featuring six channels of ultrafast ECC memory and 12 physical DIMM slots, Mac Pro allows for up to 1.5TB of memory. So pros working with large projects, analysing huge datasets or running multiple pro applications can make fast work out of all kinds of work. And while typical towers cram memory into hard-to-reach places, Mac Pro uses a two-sided logic board, making it easy to access.

Up to 2933MHz DDR4 ECC memory

Up to 140GB/s of memory bandwidth

EXPANSION

Eight PCI Express expansion slots. Go configure. 

Mac Pro is designed for pros who need to build high‑bandwidth capabilities into their systems. With four double‑wide slots, three single‑wide slots and one half‑length slot preconfigured with the Apple I/O card, it has twice as many slots as the previous Mac tower. Now you can customise and expand in ways never before possible in a single workstation.

GRAPHICS

Extreme performance. By design.

 
For many pros, a high-performance graphics architecture is critical to their workflows. Especially for tasks like animating 3D film assets, compositing 8K scenes and building lifelike gaming environments. To give them the highest possible performance and take graphics capabilities to a new level, something groundbreaking was required. Introducing the Mac Pro Expansion Module — or MPX Module.
 

A second connector. An industry first. 

The MPX Module starts with an industry-standard PCI Express connector. Then, for the first time in a graphics card, more PCIe lanes integrate Thunderbolt and additional power provided to increase capability. With up to 500 watts, the MPX Module has a power capacity equivalent to that of the entire previous-generation Mac Pro.

Radeon Pro Vega II Duo. Power plus power. 

With up to 14 teraflops of compute performance, 32GB of memory and 1TB/s of memory bandwidth, the MPX Module with Radeon Pro Vega II is a powerhouse. For more power, two Radeon Pro Vega II GPUs combine to create the Vega II Duo. With double the graphics performance, memory and memory bandwidth, it’s the world’s most powerful graphics card. The two GPUs are connected through the Infinity Fabric Link, which allows for up to five times faster data transfer between the GPUs. It’s huge for apps that are optimised for multiple GPUs

The world’s most powerful graphics card. Times two. 

Taking power one huge step further, Mac Pro supports configuration of two Radeon Pro Vega II Duo MPX Modules. The four GPUs combine to add up to 56 teraflops and 128GB of high-bandwidth memory. It’s a massive amount of performance built to tackle everything from GPU rendering to machine learning to particle simulations.

Cool. Quiet. Capable. 

Most GPUs aren’t conceived as part of an overall system, so they require their own cooling. The MPX Module is designed as an integrated component of Mac Pro. Its form factor enables a larger heat sink, which works in concert with the machine’s internal airflow to quietly dissipate heat. Without a noisy bolted-on fan, heat and decibel levels are kept remarkably low.

SECURITY AND STORAGE

Security taken to new heights. 

Mac Pro is the most secure tower we’ve ever built. A Secure Enclave coprocessor provides the foundation for encrypted storage and secure boot capabilities. So you can worry less about protecting your work, code and intellectual property. And focus more on doing your best thinking.

Apple T2 Security Chip. 

Data on Mac Pro is protected by the Apple T2 Security Chip. It integrates a Secure Enclave coprocessor and discrete controllers into a single chip. It also ensures that the lowest levels of software aren’t tampered with, and that only operating system software trusted by Apple loads at startup.

Up to 8TB of storage. 

To deliver the fastest possible performance, Mac Pro is built on an all-flash storage architecture. It starts with a 256GB SSD and is configurable to a 1TB, 2TB, 4TB or 8TB SSD — all encrypted by the T2 Security chip.

HIGH-SPEED CONNECTIONS

Powerful I/O at hand. 

Mac Pro has extremely high‑performance I/O — and lots of it. It begins with four Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports and two 10Gb Ethernet ports. And with every MPX Module you add, you get more capability. Connect up to 12 4K displays or up to six Pro Display XDRs from Apple and see your work with over 120 million pixels. It’s now easy to expand at will.

Rear expansion. 

With up to 12 Thunderbolt 3 ports, Mac Pro doesn’t just have room for more ports than any other Mac, it integrates them elegantly with each new module added.

Top case. 

Two convenient ports on the top allow for quick and easy connections to your Thunderbolt 3–compatible devices.

Powerfully purposeful.

Nothing extraneous, everything intentional. To create a high-performance system based on absolute flexibility and uncompromising utility, Mac Pro was designed from the inside out. It’s a tool built to remove barriers. So you can do your greatest work.

A whole new take on the tower.

Building a workstation that delivers immense performance and modularity meant considering it as an integrated system. Through and through, Mac Pro is built to change with your needs.

A foundation for creation. 

The starting point for Mac Pro, the stainless steel space frame accommodates a vast range of components and configurations. Extending from foot to handle, it provides support to the overall system and mounting points for interior components.

360 degrees of access. 

A single entry point wasn’t enough. Remove the aluminium housing and you have total access to the system. The logic board is dual-sided, making it easy to add and remove components. Processor, graphics and expansion on one side. Storage and memory on the other. Mac Pro is ready for customisation when you are.

Two sides. One goal.

The extreme performance of Mac Pro requires a tremendously capable thermal system. Three axial fans quietly push air across the CPU and the GPUs, keeping them cool under even the most intensive workloads. On the opposite side, a blower pulls the air across the memory and storage, and through the power supply, exhausting it out the back of the machine.

The inside shapes the outside.

Three forged and machined aluminium pieces integrated into a single part, the housing is much more than a decorative shell. It provides rigidity to the space frame. It also acts as a tight seal for the internal cavity. Working with the fans, blower and internal ducts, it creates distinct pressure zones to maximize the thermal capacity of the system.

More air than metal. 

To create the structure, a spherical array is machined onto the internal and external surfaces of the aluminium. The result is a lightweight lattice pattern that maximises airflow while creating an extremely rigid structure.

Beautifully functional.

A powerful device by itself is limited unless its design takes into consideration the ways someone actually uses it. From the handles, latches and top ports to the optional wheels and rack mount, all the components you interact with were created to work smoothly and intuitively. So you can work more efficiently than ever.

Stainless steel handles. 

The rounded handles are comfortable to grip. Because they’re part of the space frame itself, Mac Pro is exceptionally solid and stable when it’s lifted or moved.

Top ports. Wheels. Top latch. 

Two Thunderbolt 3 ports are placed conveniently on the top where you need them. Optional wheels make Mac Pro easy to transport across the set or from one studio to another. With a simple twist, the top latch releases the aluminium housing from the space frame, then serves as a handle to lift it, providing access to the entire system.
