Power to change everything.
Say hello to a Mac that is extreme in every way. With the greatest performance, expansion and configurability yet, it is a system created to let a wide range of professionals push the limits of what is possible.
Function defines form.
Every aspect of Mac Pro is designed in pursuit of performance. Built around a stainless steel space frame, an aluminium housing lifts off, allowing for 360-degree access to every component and vast configuration. From there anything is possible.
Engineered to go all out. All the time.
Squeezing every possible ounce of performance out of the processor means giving it a lot of power. In this case, over 300 watts. A massive heat sink keeps the system cool, enabling it to run fully unconstrained. Heat pipes move heat away from the chip, dispersing it along aluminium fin stacks. While three axial fans move air through the system.
Forget everything you know about memory.
A multicore workstation processor needs lots of memory to feed it. Featuring six channels of ultrafast ECC memory and 12 physical DIMM slots, Mac Pro allows for up to 1.5TB of memory. So pros working with large projects, analysing huge datasets or running multiple pro applications can make short work of all kinds of work. And while typical towers cram memory into hard-to-reach places, Mac Pro uses a two-sided logic board, making it easy to access.
Extreme performance. By design.
For many pros, a high-performance graphics architecture is critical to their workflows. Especially for tasks like animating 3D film assets, compositing 8K scenes and building lifelike gaming environments. To give them the highest possible performance and take graphics capabilities to a new level, something groundbreaking was required. Introducing the Mac Pro Expansion Module — or MPX Module.
A second connector. An industry first.
The MPX Module starts with an industry-standard PCI Express connector. Then more PCIe lanes integrate Thunderbolt and additional power provided to increase capability. With up to 500 watts, the MPX Module has a power capacity equivalent to that of the entire previous-generation Mac Pro.
MPX connectorUp to 475 watts power
Standard PCI Express x16Up to 75 watts power
Thunderbolt 3Up to 40-Gbps data transfer
Infinity Fabric LinkUp to 5x faster data transfer
Radeon Pro W6800X Duo Up to 30.2 teraflops compute performance
Radeon Pro W6800X Duo. Power plus power.
With up to 16 teraflops of compute performance, 32GB of memory and 512GB/s of memory bandwidth, the MPX Module with Radeon Pro W6800X is a powerhouse. For even more power, two Radeon Pro W6800X GPUs combine to create the W6800X Duo. With double the graphics performance, memory and memory bandwidth, it’s our most powerful graphics card. The two GPUs are connected through the Infinity Fabric Link, which allows up to 5x faster data transfer between the GPUs. It’s huge for apps that are optimised for multiple GPUs.
