Try to catch your breath as Apple smashes through in to the pro PC range with the Apple Mac Pro. Graphics, storage, processing power and memory are all here in their peak forms to provide you with the complete pro PC experience.

A unique vision. Designed for yours.

Mac has always been built around a singular vision: to create machines that are as powerful and functional as they are beautiful and intuitive. Mac Pro is a stunning realisation of that ideal. All the elements that define a pro computer — graphics, storage, expansion, processing power and memory — have been rethought and re-engineered. So you have the power and performance to bring your biggest ideas to life.

Power. Structure.

Engineered around workstation graphics with dual GPUs, PCIe-based SSD storage, high-performance Thunderbolt 2, Xeon processors, fast memory and support for 4K video, Mac Pro delivers brilliant performance across the board.


Mac Pro is muscle through and through, starting with the Intel Xeon E5, available with 6, 8 or 12 cores of processing power on a single die. And with up to 30MB of L3 cache, 40 GB/s of PCI Express gen 3 bandwidth and 256-bit-wide floating-point instructions, you’ll never be at a loss for speed.


Every component in Mac Pro is optimised for performance. That includes a four-channel DDR3 memory controller running at 1866MHz. It supports up to 64GB of memory and delivers up to 60 GB/s of memory bandwidth, which means you can fly through even the most computer-intensive tasks in no time. And since it’s ECC memory, your render job, video export or simulation won’t be stopped by transient memory errors.



Traditionally, pro computers have relied primarily on the CPU for their computing power. But as GPU performance has dramatically increased, software developers have begun to leverage that power in their apps. With Mac Pro, we looked ahead and engineered an even more powerful GPU architecture. Not only does it feature an AMD FirePro workstation-class GPU — it features two of them. And each is available with up to 6GB of dedicated VRAM with up to 2,048 stream processors. With all that power, you’ll be able to do things like seamlessly edit full-resolution 4K video while simultaneously rendering effects in the background — and still have enough power to connect up to three high-resolution 5K displays.


PCI Express–based SSD storage is fast — up to 2.4 times faster than the fastest SATA-based solid-state drive and up to 10 times faster than a 7200-rpm SATA hard drive. Most SSD storage systems connect via SATA buses designed for slower-spinning hard drives. But we designed Mac Pro around PCIe-based SSD controller technology to deliver the fastest solid-state drives available as standard in a desktop computer. So you’ll have up to 1TB of storage that will let you boot up, launch apps and even open massive files in, well, a flash.

A uni?ed thermal core.

Mac Pro packs an unprecedented amount of power in an unthinkable amount of space. A big reason we were able to do that is the ingenious unified thermal core. Rather than using multiple heat sinks and fans to cool the processor and graphics cards, we built everything around a single piece of extruded aluminium designed to maximise airflow as well as thermal capacity. It works by conducting heat away from the CPU and GPUs, and distributing that heat uniformly across the core. That way, if one processor isn’t working as hard as the others, the extra thermal capacity can be shared efficiently between them. No computer has been built this way before. And yet it makes so much sense, it’s now hard to imagine building one any other way.

A single breakthrough fan.

An incredible amount of innovation went into designing a fan system capable of cooling such a high-performance device. Instead of adding extra fans, we engineered a single, larger fan that pulls air upwards through a bottom intake. As air passes vertically through the centre of the device, it absorbs heat and carries it out of the top. It’s simple and elegant — and also astonishingly quiet. To achieve that, we had to consider every detail: the number of blades, the size of the blades, the spacing of the blades and even the shape of the blades. By minimising air resistance throughout the system, we were able to design a fan with backward-curved impeller blades that runs at fewer revolutions per minute, draws air more efficiently as it spins and creates considerably less noise.

Expansion, vastly expanded.

In creating Mac Pro, we wanted to provide an enormous amount of expansion — without being limited to the space inside the enclosure. Designed with built-in Thunderbolt 2, USB 3, Gigabit Ethernet and HDMI 1.4 ports, Mac Pro has everything you need to build a workstation completely customised to what you need and how you work.


Thunderbolt 2.

Thunderbolt combines PCI Express and DisplayPort into one high-speed, versatile I/O technology. Thunderbolt 2 delivers twice the throughput of Thunderbolt, providing up to 20 Gb/s of bandwidth to each external device. So you can connect high-performance peripherals without being limited by the number of expansion slots inside your computer. You can connect massive amounts of storage, add a PCI expansion chassis and work with the latest external displays — including 4K and 5K desktop displays and peripheral devices capable of broadcast monitoring 4K video. And since each Thunderbolt 2 port allows you to daisy-chain up to six peripherals, you can go all out by plugging in up to 36 external devices via Thunderbolt 2 alone.

Other I/O connections.

Mac Pro equips you with all kinds of connections for all kinds of peripherals. USB 3 gives you the versatility to hook up dozens of different types of external devices. Two Gigabit Ethernet ports let you connect to multiple networks. And an HDMI 1.4 port provides support for the latest televisions, projectors and displays, including Ultra HD TVs. But the thought we put into expandability extends beyond the types of peripherals you can use. As you rotate Mac Pro to plug in a device, it senses the movement and automatically illuminates the I/O panel. So you can easily see the ports you need when you need them.

Advanced wireless.

Access your network over three-stream 802.11ac Wi-Fi for the latest in high-speed wireless connectivity. For all your other wireless connections, Mac Pro includes Bluetooth 4.0. It’s the easiest way to connect your keyboard, mouse and other wireless devices without having to physically attach anything.

Radical. Yet completely logical.

Mac Pro looks unlike any other computer. Because it is unlike any other computer. By rethinking the architecture of its internal components, we had the chance to rethink the entire enclosure. And since everything centres around a unified thermal core, we were free to design a much leaner, lighter, quieter and far more streamlined structure. Its unique design and beautiful finishes are executed to an extraordinary degree of precision. And at just 25.1 centimetres tall with a diameter of just 16.7 centimetres, it’s a pro desktop computer that can actually sit on your desk.

Please note: The Mac Pro comes bundled with a power lead only. Apple Keyboards and Mice are available as add ons.
