Apple introduces new Mac Pro with M2 Ultra chip Price And Specifications
At the WWDC, Apple has finally upgraded its Mac Pro with the new M2 Ultra Chip. The Mac Pro is up to 3x faster than the previous-generation Intel-based model, said the company.
The Mac Pro with the M2 Ultra has a 24-core CPU, an up to 76-core GPU, and starts with twice the memory and SSD storage. The new Mac Pro can also be configured with up to a massive 192GB of memory with 800GB/s of unified memory bandwidth.
Now every Mac Pro has the performance of not just one but seven Afterburner cards built in. It can play an unprecedented 22 streams of 8K ProRes video. It supports up to 24 4K camera feeds and encode them to ProRes in real time, all on a single machine, when using six video I/O cards.
The new Mac Pro also brings PCIe expansion with seven PCle expansion slots, with six open expansion slots that support gen 4, which is 2x faster than before, so users can customise Mac Pro with essential cards.
It has eight built-in Thunderbolt 4 ports — six on the back and two on the top — which is twice as many as before. It supports up to six Pro Display XDRs, along with Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3.
Additionally, Mac Pro includes three USB-A ports, two higher-bandwidth HDMI ports that support up to 8K resolution and up to 240Hz frame rates, two 10Gb Ethernet ports, and a headphone jack that enables the use of high-impedance headphones.
