Content makers and expert Mac clients will have the option to begin setting orders for the new measured Mac Pro and the Pro Display XDR from Tuesday, December 10.
Apple has begun to send out emails to potential clients who signed up for updates on the new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR’s availability, advising “The wait is almost over.” The messages quickly clarify that the first orders for the two long-awaited professional-level products will commence on December 10.
While Apple planned to draw out the Mac Pro before the end of 2019, it was unknown when it would do as such, with the messages putting to rest the topic of when orders can start to be placed.
Few other details are provided to email recipients, such as the version posted to Twitter by YouTube personality MKBHD.
Be that as it may, while orders will be possible from Tuesday, it is unknown precisely when clients can hope to get their hardware. Given the closeness to the end of the year, it is highly plausible those putting cash down for the equipment could wind up holding up until the beginning of 2020 to get their orders.
Beginning from $5,999, the Mac Pro will be a return to a more modular design for the professional-level Mac, with an easily removable casing and upgradable components, offering opportunities for both simplified servicing and after-market upgrades. It very well may be designed to have a 28-core Xeon processor, up to 1.5TB of memory, up to two AMD Radeon Pro Vega II graphics MPX Modules, and an Afterburner card for improved video editing.
The Pro Display XDR will cost $4,999 for the base rendition, while another with a nano-etched coating on the screen will be estimated at $5,999. For the money, clients will get a 6K-resolution 32-inch display offering up to 1,000 nits of brightness, a 1,000,000-to-one contrast ratio, and a back lattice pattern like the Mac Pro’s fenced-in area that additionally functions as a heatsink.
A bespoke aluminum stand is additionally accessible for the Pro Display XDR as an optional extra, costing $999.
