Apple adds very expensive new graphics options to Mac Pro
What you need to know
- Apple has added new graphics options to its Mac Pro range.
- You can now add Radeon Pro W6800X, and W6900X to configurations.
- These deliver massive performance boosts but at a very high cost.
Apple has added new models of graphics cards to its Mac Pro configurations, adding even more graphics power to the eye-wateringly powerful (and expensive) desktop beast.
In a press release AMD stated:
The W6800X module is a $2,400 add-on, or $4,600 for two, whilst the W6900X MPX is $5,600.
The new Mac Pro is expected to be one of the last Intel Macs to make the jump to Apple silicon, with a new one reportedly on the way later next year:
The new smaller one will get Apple silicon, whilst a new Intel refresh for the larger version is also reportedly in the works. Alleged designs of the new smaller Mac Pro were leaked by Jon Prosser earlier this year.
