Get ready for what could be the most expensive cheesegrater in your life: the new Mac Pro is here. It is now available to pre-order from and retailers such as B&H. This new PC has configurations that go from 4- to 6-figure USD prices.

The new Mac Pro can now be purchased through Apple and some 3rd-party sellers. The new desktop has high-end Radeon graphics and Intel CPUs. These components, along with its fellows such as SSD drives found in innovative modular housings, are mainly cooled using the distinctive series of precision-cut apertures to which the OEM has made a well-received return.

The Mac Pro (2019) has Intel Xeon W chipsets, in variants that go from 8 to 28 cores and Turbo Boosts of 4.0GHz to 4.4GHz. Its RAM options run from 4x8GB to 12x128GB DDR4 ECC sticks. The graphics options (particularly important as most potential customers will probably be content-creators) are 8GB of GDDR5 of Radeon Pro 580X to 2x32GB HBM2 Radeon Pro Vega II Duos

The new desktop is also sold with options such as up to 4TB in storage, the Apple Afterburner card, wheels as opposed to feet on its stainless-steel case and copies of Final Cut Pro X or Logic Pro X (all of which have an Apple levy attached).

All in all, a base 256GB model costs US$5999; however, an alternative with the specs at max (with all the add-ons) brings this up to a whopping $53,247.98. This, of course, does not include a new XDR monitor or its $1000 stand.
