Do you still remember when Apple released the Mac Pro?
That was back in 2013 and since then we did not hear any of the latest on Mac Pro news from the giant electronics company. Will Apple release a new version of the professional-working laptop? Or will they discontinue it?
Reports revealed that Apple will still offer new Mac Pro. However, it may take more time before it will be finally unveiled. Sorry Apple fans, but it seems that two and a half years is not yet enough for a new version. While you?re waiting for it, here are some of the rumors we?ve collected so that you may have an idea how the new Mac Pro would perform and when it will actually be out in the market.
According to Mac World, Apple has yet to reveal the date for the launch of the next Mac Pro systems but speculations circulating that the company might announce or unveil it in March 2016. This is also the time when Apple will be having an event to launch the new Apple Watch 2, the iPhone 6c and an updated Macbook air.
But, based on the article, code in the OS X El Capitan bared some hints about it the Mac Pro launch, because it included a mysterious code for a new Mac, ?AAPLJ951.?
Code also suggests a new Mac Pro because it points to having 10 USB 3.0 ports, better than the current 4 USB ports and 6 Thunderbolt 2 ports.
Mac Pro 2016 Specs
Expect that the updated Mac Pro will improve the Intel Xeon E5 processor and of course have better RAM. Given below are the two standard specs of the current Mac Pro:
Quad-Core and Dual GPU: 3.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon E5 processor; 12GB 1866MHz DDR3 ECC memory; Dual AMD FirePro D300 with 2GB GDDR5 VRAM each; and 256GB PCIe-based flash storage.
6-Core and Dual GPU: 3.5GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon E5 processor; 16GB 1866MHz DDR3 ECC memory; Dual AMD FirePro D500 with 3GB GDDR5 VRAM each; 256GB PCIe-based flash storage.
It is also rumored to have an option of up to 2TB flash storage for people working with larger files. Previously, Mac Pro model have an options of 512GB SSD or 1TB SSD. The RAM will also be boosted. The report of Mac World also shared that new Xeon E5 V3 Grantley chips will have DDR4 memory controllers, enough for faster memory. Right now current models have 12GB RAM in the Quad-Core model and 16GB for 6-Code model.
Meanwhile, Apple usually experiences delays when unveiling even shipping a new product. When Apple released the Intel Xeon in the WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) in June 2013, it took about six months before it began to sell in the market.
We all know that more than two years is already long to wait but who knows? This might be an exception to your impatience.
