Mac Pro now available for up to $9600, optional 4K monitor



By

When Apple announced the new Mac Pro, it touted impressive specs of up to 12-core Xeon CPU and dual AMD FirePro GPUs. Plus PCIe storage and lots of memory. When the workstation was introduced, two pedestrian models were offered as stock configurations for $3000 and $4000. I was curious on the cost of the “well equipped” configuration Apple was promoting. Just on components, the 12 core Xeon was going to be pretty pricy. As too the two GPUs with 6 GB memory each. I figured about $10G, and that’s just about where it landed.

Not really a computer for the rest of us, but if you make money on your Macs the cost could be justified. The next big question will be how well these lower end machines perform compared to quad-core i7 GPUs.

For accessories, Apple is adding on a 4K Sharp monitor. Early next year I expect to see more 4K options with Dell already announcing some compelling products. We’ll probably see an update to Apple’s display in the coming months. That Sharp monitor is a massive 32-inch display and Apple is selling it for about $3600.
