Apple’s new Mac Pro is finally here. After months, and even years of wait, the company’s Mac Pro is finally out for the public.

The new Mac Pro comes with a design that focuses on modularity and flexibility. According to Apple, users have 360-degree access to the entire system and can easily upgrade their machine as much as they like.

Here are the specs:

  • Intel Xeon processor with up to 28 cores
  • Up to 1.5 terabytes of RAM
  • GPUs: Radeon Pro 580X, Radeon Pro Vega II with 14 teraflops of GPU power and 32GB of HBM2, or Radeon Pro Vega II Duo
  • Eight internal PCIe slots
  • 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports
  • Two built-in 10GB ethernet ports
  • A built-in FPGA that allows for incredible compute power
  • Can process up to 3 streams of 8K video, or 12 streams of 4K video at a time
  • A 1.4kW power supply, because someone needs to power all these powerful components

Apple is also announcing a 32-inch 6K HDR display to go along with the new Mac Pro. This is the biggest Retina Display ever built by Apple, and has a resolution of 6016×3364 pixels, P3 and true 10-bit color, super wide-viewing angles, and more. It comes with a Pro Stand that makes the display feel very light, and you can rotate it as well — Apple also allows you detach the display form the monitor and use a VESA mount instead. It’s called the Pro Display XDR because it comes with Extreme Dynamic Range because Apple says its HDR is better than anyone else’s.

I have to be honest, Apple really came all out with the new Mac Pro. It will probably cost a lot, though. For the base model with the 8-core XEON processor, 32GB memory, Radeon Pro 560X, and 256GB SSD, you will have to pay $5,999. And for the Pro Display XDR, it will start at a whopping $4,999. Available this Fall.
