More than two years after Apple promised a new modular high-end desktop machine for its professional users, the new Mac Pro is now available for purchase, as is its companion display, the Pro Display XDR.

Apple is accepting orders for the Mac Pro and the Pro Display XDR, with Mac Pro delivery estimates at one to two weeks after an order is placed.


First unveiled in June, the 2019 Mac Pro is the first new Mac Pro that Apple has released since the 2013 "trash can" Mac Pro that ultimately failed due to its focus on dual GPUs and thermal limitations.


The updated Mac Pro is a high-end high-throughput machine designed for professional users, and this new model has a heavy focus on upgradeability and expansion. The Mac Pro has a traditional PC shape, but with an Apple-esque stainless steel frame that features a lattice design to maximize airflow and allow for quiet performance.


Priced starting at $5,999, the Mac Pro is equipped with workstation-class Xeon processors with up to 28 cores with 64 PCI Express lanes, up to 1.5TB RAM, eight PCIe expansion slots, and an option for dual Radeon Pro Vega II Duo GPUs housed in two Apple MPX modules.


The Mac Pro supports up to 4TB of SSD storage, has multiple ports, features Apple's T2 security chip, and is equipped with an Apple-designed ProRes and ProRes RAW accelerator card called the Apple Afterburner.


Apple is selling the Mac Pro alongside the Apple Pro Display XDR, a 6K 32-inch display with a resolution of 6016 x 3384. The Pro Display XDR shares design elements with the Mac Pro, featuring a lattice pattern that doubles as a thermal system and edge-to-edge glass with a 9mm border.


Apple is selling the Pro Display XDR for $4,999, with a stand for the display priced at $999.


The new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR can be ordered from Apple's website starting now.

Getting a "Page Not Found" error at 12:01.

Must be popular.

12:02 - Selecting the non-rack configuration redirects to the old Mac Pro.
12:04 - Same issue. C'mon Apple QA.
12:06 - Works!

There’s a very explicit ‘you may qualify for small business pricing’ notice at the top.. i bet there will be lots of discussion about that

For me, the 'Buy' button goes to a page to buy the trashcan.

Edit: Cache must have caught up. Goes to the new mac pro buy page now.

$12,000 gets a nice setup. I’m impressed that they limited the >1TB RAM to the 24-28 core processors. Saves a lot of money if you only want 16 cores and 900 GB RAM. (Sorry, too old not to find that number hysterically funny.)

Still impossible to order the ProDisplay. What a crap rollout of the product page. Seriously terrible QA.

Wow. Really surprised it’s so cheap.
I was way off on the top config. I did decently on the 28-core/1.5TB RAM/4TB SSD/2 x dual Vega II; I guessed $60k, it’s $50,200.

For that config with 384GB RAM, I guessed $40k, but it’s only $31,200.

But I thought the Afterburner would be $20,000 ? I thought it would be maybe twice the price of the quad-core GPU config. Nope, not 200%—just 20%. Off by an order of magnitude lol.
