Apple Unveils New Mac Pro With M2 Ultra Chip and More

Apple today updated its Mac Pro desktop tower with the all-new M2 Ultra chip, which features a 24-core CPU, up to a 76-core GPU, and support for up to 192GB of memory. Apple says the new Mac Pro is up to 3x faster than the fastest Intel-based Mac Pro.

Mac Pro Feature Teal
The new Mac Pro has the same overall design as the previous Intel-based model. However, the tower is now equipped with eight Thunderbolt 4 ports instead of four, two higher-bandwidth HDMI ports that support up to an 8K display at 240Hz, seven PCIe expansion slots, dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, and a headphone jack that supports impedance headphones. The computer can be configured with up to 8TB of SSD storage.

Like the new Mac Studio, and the latest MacBook Pro and Mac mini models, the Mac Pro now supports faster Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3.

The new Mac Pro is available to order starting today, and it will begin arriving to customers and launch in stores on Tuesday, June 13. In the U.S., pricing starts at $6,999, whereas the previous Intel-based Mac Pro started at $5,999. A rack-mounted version of the Mac Pro remains available from $7,499.

Isn't this just a Mac Studio in a pro chassis with PCI support? Or did I miss something?

The Studio price compared to the Pro price makes no sense. They use the same exact chip with non-upgradable RAM.

192GB max memory limit is incredibly small. Real workstations need terabytes of RAM. It's basically an overpriced Mac Studio with PCIe for IO, which can normally be done via Thunderbolt these days.

Really surprised Apple went with this kind of architecture. They needed a blowout product.

3x faster than the last Intel Mac isn’t the flex Apple thinks it is.

That chassis is incredibly empty. I feel like they're going to move very few of these.
