They also give it a look that resembles a kitchen implement-a cheese grater. Its housing is largely made of aluminum, with stainless steel handles for moving the device as needed as well as a set of "feet" on the bottom. According to Apple, the three-dimensional interlocking hemisphere pattern simultaneously assists with airflow by maximizing surface area and makes the case rigid but lightweight.
The computer is powerful enough to run three streams of raw 8K video.
Apple Inc. released its Pro Display XDR in parallel with the updated Mac Pro at its World-Wide Developer Conference yesterday, and its new $999 monitor stand garnered a lot of attention. The computer will sport Intel's latest Xeon chips with up to 28 CPU cores, drawing 300W of power. Most consumer-level processors have between four and eight cores. Surprisingly, the company will support Macs ranging back to 2012.
The Mac Pro will in addition have system memory which can be customised to a staggering 1.5TB.
After thinking about it more, for what appears to be a reference grade display meant for graphics pros, Apple's $US1,000 ($1,432) Pro Stand is expensive but it's not exactly the rip off a lot of people think it is. Two MPX Modules with AMD Radeon Pro Vega II Duos provide 56 teraflops and 128GB of high-bandwidth memory, for handling the most demanding video compositing and 3D rendering tasks, for example. An Apple spokesperson staffing the demo area confirmed that an AR-compatible file will also be available on the Mac Pro's product page for anyone to download. That includes two Thunderbolt 3 ports, two 10Gb Ethernet ports, two USB-A ports, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Apple Is Officially Shutting Down iTunes, Teases What’s Next
However, Apple will be pulling back on the iPhone in the future, and place more focus on the Apple Watch . And yes, we'll still be able to purchase songs from the iTunes Music Store (or whatever it'll be called).
To start, Apple addressed the drama surrounding the death of iTunes.
As we learned a year ago, Apple was stepping away from the debacle of its cylindrical Mac Pro and bringing in actual pro users to consult with on a complete reimagining of what a Mac for professional users should offer (see "New Mac Pro Slated for 2019; May Be Modular", 6 April 2018).
Unlike its predecessor, this Mac Pro is all about configurability and allows PC-style upgrading and expansion inside. Apple said an activation lock is also coming to Macs, so if your laptop is stolen, you can lock it down.
The 9mm bezels are super narrow and the screen comes in two models: glossy glass and a matte finish.
From Jonathan Terrasi, a reporter for Digital Trends: "With a WWDC 2019 focused on software, consumers were quite pleasantly surprised, and almost overwhelmed, to see the reappearance of the formidable new desktop product announced alongside their array of improved software offerings". It has a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and superwide viewing angle.
Sure, maybe you're gonna mount the display via VESA to a wall or attach it on a desk arm, but it feels like Apple's cheaping out on the stand here.
