The new Mac Pro computer and display are displayed during Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California, U.S. June 3, 2019. The model harkens back to the earliest Mac Pro, which debuted in 2006, recalling an aesthetic that looks, uncannily, like a cheese grater.
The look harks back to older Mac Pro models sold from 2006 to 2013 that featured a boxy silver case and a mesh panel.
With the new Mac Pro, Apple has returned to the basics in a big manner. The puns practically write themselves.
Apple's new 32-inch Pro XDR display is a technical tour de force making it fitting companion for its beastly powerful companion, the all-new Mac Pro.
It's just a shame that Apple took so long to realize that this is the kind of Mac the pros have been hungry for.
However, there is a class of users that is now buying an Eizo monitor for $5,000 to get professional-class image quality, and Apple's display is so much better that it's not even close.
The new Mac Pro supports up to 28-cores in its Intel Xeon processor, 1.5TB of memory, Radeon Pro 580 and Pro Vega II graphics cards, eight PCI Express expansion slots, and way more presumably mind-blowing pro specs. Its groundbreaking graphics expansion architecture, the Apple MPX module, features Thunderbolt integration and over 500W of power, both firsts for any graphics card.More news: Istanbul residents hit roads for Eid al-Fitr holiday

The new Mac Pro's single-width slots probably won't remain unpopulated either. "Users will appreciate how they can expand their workspace with Sidecar, enabling new ways of interacting with Mac apps using iPad and Apple Pencil".
So, when you update your Mac to macOS 10.15 Catalina later this year, be sure to remember iTunes is out and Finder is in.
The announcement of the price points for the Mac Pro and the Pro Display XDR monitor - starting at $US6,000 and $US5,000, respectively - were met with cheers and applause.
To put that in some context, an iMac Pro with an 8-core processor, 32GB of memory and a 1TB SSD, costs $7,299 locally and that includes an integrated 5K display.
With a large array of LEDs in a direct backlighting system, the Pro Display XDF produces 1,000 nits of full-screen brightness and 1,600 nits of peak brightness.
With each Mac Pro and XDR display bought, Cook himself promised to deliver a cup of that sour, completely undrinkable marmalade right to your door himself (although he'd prefer you just come to the Apple Store and wait for 5 hours).
The Pro Display XDR supports P3 and 10-bit colour along with an improved viewing angle and an anti-reflective coating. Apple showed the PC deftly handling 8K video and 1,000 tracks in its Logic Pro X music software.
