Apple Unveils New Mac Pro At WWDC
As one of its numerous unveilings today, Apple showed off a new Mac Pro at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference. It has a new look, and is significantly smaller.

The new model is so much smaller, in fact, that it fits into just an eighth of the volume of the previous model.
The new Mac pro includes Thunderbolt support. It includes an Intel Xeon CPU, 1866GHz RAM, and 2.5 times faster SSD storage. It also supports AMD FirePro GPUs.
“With the latest Xeon processors, dual FirePro GPUs, ECC memory, PCIe-based flash and Thunderbolt 2, all built around a revolutionary thermal core, the next generation Mac Pro is the most radical Mac yet,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “All this performance and expandability is packed into a dramatic new design that’s one-eighth the volume, and best of all, it will be assembled here in the USA.”
Consumers can look for the device later this year. No specific date was given, nor was the price.
