Apple Mac Pro India Launch Details
Apple is on a launch spree. After updating the iPad series and launching the all-new Red variant of Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the company now has updated its Mac Pro lineup after nearly two years.
The Apple Mac Pro new models are already up for sale in the country from Apple India’s official site. However, Apple did not reduce the pricing of the Mac Pro, though, in India and in other nations as well.
The base model of the Mac Pro still retails for a staggering Rs. 2,49,000 in India and $2999 in the US.
The latest Mac Pro comes with updated specifications. It now features an Intel Xeon E5 chip, which is a six-core chip clocked at 3.5 GHz.
The Dual AMD FirePro D700 GPUs power the graphics in the new Mac Pro. Also, the new Mac Pros come with 256 GB of storage, but it can be further expandable up to 512 GB or 1 TB.
The new storage is PCI-E based and offers much faster data transmission when compared to the old SATA Flash drive.
The GPU used in the base Mac variant is the Dual AMD FirePro D500, coupled with 16 GB of RAM from the 12 GB of RAM in the previous versions.
Apple also announced one more variant of the Mac Pro, and it retails for Rs. 3,29,900 in India and $3999 in the US. It comes with an eight-core Intel Xeon E5 chipset, clubbed with 16 GB of RAM.
However, the RAM in both models can be configured and can support up to four 8GB models or four 16 GB modules, which means that you can expand the RAM up to a maximum of 64 GB in the new Mac Pros.
Having said that, other features of the Mac Pro remain untouched. It still comes with four USB 3.0 ports, six Thunderbolt ports, dual Gigabit Ethernet port, and two HDMI ports.
It also has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support. The new Mac Pros retains the same dimensions as its predecessors- 9.9-inch and 6.6-inch.
Although these upgrades are minor ones from the predecessors, something is better than nothing and that too from Apple.
The Cupertino giant also revealed that they will be launching a completely revamped Mac Pro in 2018 with several innovative features.
