WWDC: The new Mac Pros have incredible specs, will be built in U.S. Apple has shown off a prototype of their upcoming refreshed Mac Pro desktop.
The device uses a cylinder design and will include high-end specs and be built in the U.S. Apple exec Phil Schiller also brought a little fury, yelling "Can't innovate anymore, my ass," before showing off the device.

First, the desktop is 1/8th the volume of the previous model of the Pro, hiding 4 USB ports, Gigabit ethernet, HDMI out, 6 Lightning 2.0 ports and more in a tiny frame.

Under the hood is a monster 12-core, 256-bit Intel Xeon processor with 1,866MHz DDR3 RAM and a purported 60GBps performance. The Mac Pro also ships with dual AMD FirePro GPUs, which supports three 4K monitors.

The computer will be at least 2.5 times faster than the highest-end current model Pro.

How is this innovation? "We used a Xeon processor and built a bad ass computer that will cost several thousand dollars, and yeah, only professionals/companies will likely be buying these! Hell yeah, innovation!"

Sounds like a beast. I'm sure it will be priced accordingly. I find myself more drawn to Apple as MS continues to piss me off. (WIN 8, XBox1)

ChiknLiti,

This computer isn't meant for you. It is as you said, for professionals. Not for surfing the and playing games.

8 1/2 inches tall. That's a game changer.

Im sorry... 256-bit processor? Im unaware of anything anywhere near this even being experimented on, let alone available for consumer/enterprise purchase. (Is there a joke Im missing?)
