    Now, Cook talking about the new Mac Pro. It calls back to the old Mac Pro -- but there's a new display. It has these circular cutouts all throughout. "This is the new Mac Pro, and it's incredible."
  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 6:20:13 PM
    Cook: "It has a gorgeous design and performance to match."

    Well, it basically goes back to the old Mac Pro, with the pop-off side cover of a gaming desktop.

    John Turnus now on stage. It's got a stainless steel frame and handles. All internal modules mount to the frame. "Every subsystem has been optimized for performance."

    Turnus says Apple's using a new 28-core Intel Xeon processor. And it's getting over 300 watts for power. "It can run fully unconstrained all the time."
     
    Up to 1.5 terabytes of system memory (not HDD, memory)

    I am bowing out during the Mac Pro discussion.

    Turnus says bringing eight PCIe slots back. And the Mac Pro has two built-in 10-gigabit ethernet ports

    I mean, with multiple double PCi slots, pop-off side panel, etc. the new Mac Pro basically takes a lot of cues from big-ass gaming desktops.
  • James Martin 6/3/2019 6:25:05 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 6:25:07 PM
    Turnus says "we wanted to go beyond the typical graphics card design. Will support Radeon Pro 580X, Vega II, and you can even put two Vega II cards together. "This is a really big deal for apps configured to take advantage of multiple graphics cards"

    Turnus says created a card called Afterburner -- it can process 6 billion pixels per second, meaning "an unprecedented level of performance" for the ProRes and ProRes Raw formats.

    Lots of impressive specs, including real-time full-res video for editing, but that means a 1.4kW power supply, massive fans, huge heat sinks, etc. With enough thermal headroom and expansion space, you can really accomplish a lot.
  • Ian Sherr 6/3/2019 6:27:54 PM
    The Mac Pro also has optional wheels. Can't wait for Mac Pro jousting.

    Unity, Pixar, Avid, Otoy and RED are going to work with it, among others.

    Now David Earl from Pro Apps marketing on stage. He's showing off Logic Pro X editing on the Mac Pro.

    1. This seems to hit a lot of wish lists for what people wanted from a new Mac Pro.
    2. At the same time, it's a surprisingly conservative design, completely abandoning the last model and going back to a highly traditional tower shape.
