The new Mac Pro has been teased. It’s been nearly 10 years since they’ve come out with a new case for their most powerful workstation, and they didn’t disappoint with the design elements on this one. Whether this spinning cylinder is the future of workstations or the re-hash of the low-selling G4 Cube, time will tell.
I know they are cramming that little R2D2 looking thing with alot of horsepower: Up to 12 processor cores, dual GPU’s, Fast SSD, lots of ram, thunderbird 1 and 2 connectors, and all burning under 1 fan. Most builders don’t put that much heat in such a small case, but this is Apple and the thing is designed like a little turbine.
Personally I would like to see the design be more rack-friendly. This is definitely a desktop machine, whereas audio studios would like to rack mount the thing for safety and security. But this looks pretty bad-ass, can’t wait to see it in action this fall. Check out Apple’s site for more teasing.
