Function defines form. 

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


Tremendous Processor Power and Massive Bandwidth
Designed for customers who demand the ultimate in CPU performance - for workflows like production rendering, playing hundreds of virtual instruments, or simulating an app on a dozen iOS devices at once - the Mac Pro features a powerful Intel Xeon W processor, with many PCI Express lanes for tremendous performance and massive bandwidth. It also provides over a lot of power along with a thermal architecture to allow the processor to run fully unconstrained all the time.


Enormous Memory Capacity and Expansion
For pros working with the large projects, analyzing huge data sets, or running multiple pro applications, the Mac Pro provides a memory capacity of up to 1.5TB to meet needs as they grow. Featuring a six-channel memory architecture and 12 physical DIMM slots, each of which supports up to a 128GB memory module, plus eight PCI Express expansion slots, which is twice that of the previous-generation Mac Pro tower, pros can customize and expand their system in ways never before possible in a single workstation.
Powerful Graphics Architecture
For pros animating 3D film assets, compositing 8K scenes, and building complex 3D environments, graphics performance is more important than ever. That is why the Mac Pro features the powerful graphics card with up to 56 teraflops of graphics performance in a single system. Its graphics expansion architecture, the Apple MPX Module, features Thunderbolt integration and over 500W of power, both firsts for any graphics card. And for super quiet operation, the MPX Module is cooled by the Mac Pro system thermals. The Mac Pro can be equipped with up to two Radeon Pro Vega II Duo cards.
Apple Afterburner Card
The Mac Pro debuts Afterburner, featuring a programmable ASIC capable of decoding up to 6.3 billion pixels per second. With Afterburner, video editors using high-quality cameras that require the conversion of native file formats into proxies for easy editing can now use native formats right from the camera and decode up to three streams of 8K ProRes RAW video and 12 streams of 4K ProRes RAW video in real time, virtually eliminating proxy workflows.
Modular Enclosure with 360° Access
The design of the Mac Pro starts with a stainless steel space frame with an aluminum housing that lifts off for 360-° access to the entire system. The frame provides a foundation for modularity and flexibility, and incorporates smooth handles for easily moving the Mac Pro around the studio. The housing also features a lattice pattern to maximize airflow and quiet operation. For customers who want to rack mount their Mac Pro in edit bays or machine rooms, an optimized version for rack deployment will be available.

Forget everything you know about memory. 

A multicore workstation processor needs lots of memory to feed it. Featuring six channels of superfast ECC memory and 12 physical DIMM slots, Mac Pro allows for up to 1.5TB of memory. So pros working with large projects, analyzing huge data sets, 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 utilizes a two-sided logic board, making it easy to access.
