On the first day of the WWDC developer conference, Apple unveiled the new Mac Pro professional PC.
The computer has a modular design and a rather unusual design: the stainless steel and aluminum body is very reminiscent of an ordinary kitchen grater. But the most interesting thing is inside.
The basic configuration received an 8-core Xeon W CPU with a frequency of up to 4 GHz, 32 GB of memory, 256 GB of SSD memory and a Radeon Pro 580X video card.
In the top configuration, a 28-core Intel Xeon CPU,1.5 TB of RAM in the form of 12 modules (six channels), up to four Radeon Pro Vega II, which has a colossal computing power of up to 58 teraflops, a pair of 4 TB SSDs and a 1.4 kilowatt power supply.
With the help of such a computer, you can conduct three streams at once in 8K resolution each and 12 streams in 4K. There is also a special Afterburner card to speed up video processing.
The cooling system consists of 6 fansand a water evaporation system. There are 8 PCIe expansion slots, 2 USB Type-C ports with Thunderbolt 3 specification, 2 UCB-A 3.0 ports and even a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The dimensions of this colossus are 529x450x218 mm, weight - as much as 18 kg. Therefore, the kit includes a special stand with wheels for transporting the computer.
The basic version will cost $5,999, but the cost of the top-end configuration was not announced, apparently so as not to shock the audience and conference participants. Sales will start this fall.
