Apple has another computer that converts to Apple Silicon. It’s a Mac Pro.And it sounds more familiar than we expected. According to Marc Garman Newsletter “Power On” bloombergfuture updates will appear the same as the 2019 version.
For some, that’s a bit of a bummer, as many of Apple’s designs with proprietary silicon have evolved.But what is more interesting to us here is tom’s hardware It’s what’s going on inside.Before bloomberg A high-end Mac Pro with 48 CPU cores and 152 graphics clusters was reportedly sluggish, but now Gurman says it’s been cancelled. Instead, he writes that his Apple will release a Mac Pro with his M2 Ultra. This is an evolution of the M1 Ultra found in Mac Studio.
All Apple Silicon chips have RAM, which makes the Mac Pro setup weird. Gurman’s newsletter suggests that the upcoming Mac Pro won’t have upgradeable RAM, unlike the 2019 Intel Xeon-based model. That being said, he reports there are two SSD storage slots and room for “graphics, media, and network cards.”
Apple has relied on its own integrated graphics in all of its Apple Silicon devices, so it’s very interesting to see the proposal for graphics cards to be modularized here. (Apple claimed that the M1 Ultra-powered Mac Studio could rival the RTX 3090, but independent testing suggested otherwise, especially in gaming.) I think you may be writing a driver for your card. Or you could be using something like the Apple Afterburner card introduced in the 2019 Mac Pro for video editing in ProRes and ProRes RAW codecs. Existing Mac Pros are based on Intel Xeon chips and run on AMD Radeon Pro graphics (the latest being his W6000X card designed specifically for Apple’s tower, coming in 2021 with AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics).
When Apple released the Mac Studio, the announcement video stated that the beefed-up Mac Mini would not replace the Mac Pro. But with limited upgradability, especially when the Mac Studio gets bumped to the M2 Ultra, there’s the question of which one to get. However, the Mac Pro’s price could be much higher than Studio’s current price.
In other Mac news, Gurman notes that some of the best ultrabooks, the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, got spec boosts with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips in the first half of this year, with a 15-inch still planned. reported that -inch MacBook Air coming in 2023.
The iPad, Apple Watch, and AirPods could see a small bump without any news about Apple TV hardware. Part of this is due to Apple’s focus on unveiling a mixed reality headset, presumably called the Reality Pro, ahead of his Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, reportedly in the fall. will be released on
