Mac Pro 2019 MPX Module (GPU) unexpectedly easy to upgrade

Mac Pro 2019 MPX Module (GPU) unexpectedly easy to upgrade

The base price of Apple's new Mac Pro tower with an eight-core CPU is $5,999, but a system with maxed out specifications is priced at a whopping $53,247.98. Below, I've broken down each of these tiers of Mac Pro so you can see what you get when you spend both the minimum and maximum amount of money on this machine. Reminiscent of what Apple did when it released the iMac Pro, the new Mac Pro was provided to a very limited set of reviewers with video production experience in advance of pre-orders.

We knew Apple's new Mac Pro started at $5,999, but it was unclear how much a fully maxed-out model would set you back. For a company that's been notoriously hesitant to release products that can be modified by users, this might feel a little unusual.

The Apple Mac Pro workstation are powered by Intel's Xeon W processors, with options ranging from eight to 28 cores.

To increase the computer's RAM memory from 32 gigabytes to 1.5 terabytes is US$25,000 extra, the main reason the price can exceed US$52,000. Upgrade options include the newer Radeon Pro W5700X - roughly equivalent to AMD's recently launched Radeon Pro W5700 - and the top option is up to two AMD Radeon Pro Vega II Duo graphics cards in MPX form-factor. For extra glare protection, you can buy the "nano-texture glass" model of the same display, which goes for $5,999.

Incidentally, you're looking at king's ransom for this level of hardware whether you buy a Mac Pro or, say, a Dell. It's made to appeal to companies and professionals that focus on graphic design, video, and research, and thus need to run heavy duty software programs and 3D simulations. All told, the workstation has multiple PCIe 3.0 slots and a 1.4 kW PSU, so the new Mac Pro can be expanded quite significantly.

According to Apple's website, the company also plans on selling a "rack version" of the Mac Pro that can act as a server in a data center.
