Apple Mac Pro

The all-new Mac Pro is designed for maximum performance, expansion, and configurability. It features workstation-class Intel Xeon processors up to 28 cores, a high-performance memory system with a massive 1.5TB capacity, eight PCI Express expansion slots, up to 8TB SSD storage, and a graphics architecture featuring the world’s most powerful graphics card. It also introduces Afterburner, a game-changing accelerator card that enables Mac Pro to play up to 6 streams of 8K ProRes RAW or 23 streams of 4K ProRes RAW. With Mac Pro, a wide range of professionals can push the limits of what’s possible.

3.5GHz 8-core Intel Xeon W with Turbo Boost up to 4.0GHz

Configurable up to 12-, 16-, 24-, or 28-core Intel Xeon W with Turbo Boost up to 4.4GHz

32GB DDR4 ECC memory, configurable up to 1.5TB via 12 user-accessible DIMM slots

Radeon Pro 580X with 8GB GDDR5, configurable up to dual Radeon Pro Vega II Duo with 64GB HBM2 each

256GB SSD, configurable up to 8TB SSD

8 PCI Express slots, up to 12 Thunderbolt 3 ports, 2 USB-A ports, and dual 10Gb Ethernet; optional Afterburner card

All-new design

  • Stainless-steel space frame provides a foundation for modularity and flexibility, and the aluminum housing lifts off for 360-degree access to the entire system
  • Features a dual-sided logic board with processor, graphics, and expansion on one side, and storage and memory on the other, allowing easy access to all key components
  • Smooth handles make it easy to move Mac Pro around your studio or workspace
  • Stunning lattice pattern maximizes airflow and minimizes acoustics
  • Rack enclosure (coming soon) provides the same expansion with elegant quick-deployment rack rails

Processor and memory

  • Designed for workflows that demand the ultimate in CPU performance, like production rendering, orchestration for hundreds of instruments, or simulating an app on a dozen iOS devices at once
  • Powerful Intel Xeon processors have up to 28 cores, with 64 PCI Express lanes for tremendous performance and massive bandwidth
  • Six channels of super-fast ECC memory and 12 physical DIMM slots mean you get up to 1.5TB of memory


  • Eight PCI Express expansion slots—twice as many as the previous generation Mac Pro tower
  • Four double-wide slots, three single-wide slots, and one half-length slot preconfigured with the Apple I/O card


  • Delivers a high-performance graphics architecture ideal for workflows like animating 3D film assets, compositing 8K scenes, and building lifelike gaming environments
  • Configurable with Radeon Pro Vega II Duo—the world’s most powerful graphics card—and up to 56 teraflops of graphics performance in a single system
  • Groundbreaking graphics expansion architecture—the Apple MPX Module—features Thunderbolt integration and over 500W of power, both firsts for any graphics card

Apple Afterburner for video editing

  • Game-changing accelerator card means pros can move footage straight from camera to timeline and work natively with 4K and even 8K files from the start
  • Enables Mac Pro to decode up to 6 streams of 8K ProRes RAW or 23 streams of 4K ProRes RAW

Security and storage

  • Data on Mac Pro is protected by the Apple T2 Security Chip
  • All-flash storage architecture delivers the fastest possible performance

High-speed connections, powerful I/O

  • Features four Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports, and two 10Gb Ethernet ports, and an option to configure up to 12 Thunderbolt 3 ports
  • Connect up to 12 4K displays or up to six Apple Pro Display XDRs
