Apple reveals specs, $3,000 price for new Mac Pro, release set for December

Back in June, Apple took the wraps off the newest Mac Pro, which got a cylindrical makeover whose shape and hue remind us of the monolith from Mac Pro Rear Ports

Despite all that Mac Pro details that Apple distributed at WWDC, there were numerous information gaps surrounding Cupertino’s newest desktop; namely detailed specs like the exact processor used, price, and release date. Apple lifted the veils on those three areas of interest today at an event held in San Francisco. So, here’s what we learned today about the new Mac Pro.

The new Mac Pro will be powered by an 3.7GHz quad-core Xeon processor, 12GB of DRAM, dual FirePro D300 GPUs with 2GB of VRAM each and a 256GB SSD. All of this will run you a hefty sum of $2,999. For that cash, 256GB of storage is a bit light, and will quickly get filled up by professional photographers and other creative types. We also got exact numbers on the amount of Thunderbolt 2 ports and USB 3.0 connectors. The new Mac Pro will sport six of the former and a foursome of the latter.

Though Apple didn’t reveal an exact release date for the new Mac Pro, it will hit the market sometime in December.
