    Apple at WWDC 2019 last week unveiled its long-awaited redesigned Mac Pro along with a new Pro Display XDR. At the time, Apple said both products will be available to order in the fall, without providing a more specific timeframe.


    Apple has since updated its website following the end of WWDC, however, revealing that the new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR are "coming in September." This date is listed on Apple's homepage in an overlay that pops open after clicking on "notify me" under each product, although only in the United States.

    This date has yet to be listed outside of the United States, while the main Mac Pro page and other marketing materials still say "coming in the fall," so this may or may not be an error. We've reached out to Apple for comment.



    The all-new Mac Pro is an absolute powerhouse with up to 28-core Intel Xeon processors, up to 1.5TB of ECC RAM, up to 4TB of SSD storage, up to AMD Radeon Pro Vega II Duo graphics with 64GB of HBM2 memory, and eight PCIe expansion slots for maximum performance, expansion, and configurability.

    The new design includes a stainless steel frame with smooth handles and an aluminum housing that lifts off for 360-degree access to the entire system. The housing also features a unique lattice pattern, which has already been referred to as a cheese grater, to maximize airflow and quiet operation.


    Apple's Pro Display XDR is a 32-inch 6K monitor with a P3 wide color gamut and true 10-bit color support, 1,600 nits of peak brightness, a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and a super-wide, off-axis viewing angle.

    The new Mac Pro will start at $5,999, while the Pro Display XDR will start at $4,999 with an optional $999 stand.

    Update: Apple's homepage now says the new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR are "coming this fall." It's unclear if the "September" timeframe was simply a mistake or prematurely-revealed information. We've yet to hear back from Apple.

    Time to start building up savings and credit status! With my experience of currently using a maxed out 2010MP the investment will be for an upgradable machine that will likewise be a useful tool for years to come.

    Great news for tens of dozens of people who will actually buy these. A vast majority of the creative individuals like video editors, musicians, photographers and graphic designers is priced out of the Mac Pro market.

    Much as I would like this, the price is just outrageous for a reasonably equipped machine. :)

    For people who this Mac Pro is aimed to, the price they pay is quite affordable. No kidney drama!

    i just look forward to some of this technology trickling down to the more consumer models over time. I've got all i need for now.. I'm also curious to see what the next step for the macbook pro will be.

    Well I just hope the stand won’t be delayed due to high amend and I need to use the display on my lap instead

    You can always go the cheaper route and hire someone to hold up the monitor for you while you work.

    There are more Pros and companies with money than you think. Look for nice Mac growth when the numbers are reported.

    What’s the justification for the $999 monitor stand? I understand that if you’re spending almost $10000 on a monitor and computer together, another $999 isn’t a killer. But there’s nothing else special with that stand, right, other than being designed specifically for that monitor?

    I wish I actually did the kind of high-end work that actually benefits from this beast. Unfortunately, nobody in my office, let alone the building, (though maybe the next building over) has a workload anywhere near intensive enough to convince IT to make one appear.

    It's going to be a lot more than that. Remember who the Mac Pro is for: corporate purchasers and wealthy creatives. The former is primarily who it was designed for, and who can easily afford it.

    That assumes someone (including Apple) releases new MPX modules. If not, you’re in the same boat as with the Trash Can which /also/ had upgradeable dual GPUs, but a new one never came out. You could just upgrade to the top tier which kept its price 5 years later because it was still the current sku.

    ITS not even ready for sale now!?

    Yeah, Disney isn't saying, "Wow, these are expensive."

    First of all, professional equipment isn't cheap and those who buy it understand that. Go price an XDR comparable display and workstation. Apple actually is presenting tremendous value in this space. The $999 stand is the only questionable piece.

    Secondly, money isn't the only determining factor for buying something, particularly when you have it. All cars are transportation, but BMWs, Benz, Ferrari, Porsche, etc deliver on metrics people care about.

    I've worked for quite a few wealthy companies with very skilled workforces. None of them would even think of getting such a machine, because none of them did high-end video/music editing. I think the market for the new Mac Pro is very limited.
