Apple’s new Mac Pro can now be ordered from the online store of Apple. Although prices start at $5,999, as you add more SSD storage, a more powerful processor, more RAM, and more, the Mac Pro becomes expensive very quickly.
You can currently set up a build-to-order Mac Pro that costs $52,599 with all the hardware upgrade options available. Here’s what you get from that price:
- Processor: 2.5 GHz 28‑core Intel Xeon W processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.4GHz
- Memory: 1.5 TB (12 x 128 GB) of DDR4 ECC memory
- Storage: 4 TB SSD storage
- Graphics: Two Radeon Pro Vega II Duo with 2 x 32 GB of HBM2 memory each
- Apple Afterburner Card
- Stainless steel frame with wheels
Of that $50,599, the Mac Pro wheels themselves are $400:
The Apple Afterburner Card compensates for the value of $2,000:
That’s a powerful machine, as you’d expect for more than $50,000. Apple is currently citing a delivery window for that configuration between January 28 and February 3.
However, with all this being said, the Mac Pro will soon become more expensive. The Mac Pro currently maximizes SSD storage at 4 TB, but Apple says an 8 TB option will be available.
Two new graphics card options for the Mac Pro will also be available “soon.”
- Radeon Pro W5700X with 16 GB of GDDR6 memory
- Two Radeon Pro W5700X with 16 GB of GDDR6 memory each
You can now configure your Mac Pro on the website of Apple — just make sure you first request an increase in the Apple Card credit limit.
