Affordability plays a massive role when looking for a PC. Rummaging around to get high-end graphic cards and the highest number of core processors without splurging is tough – that’s why people go out of their way to build a PC from scratch. So, if you did have the dirhams to splurge, what would it look like? Behold, Apple’s Mac Pro, boasting a 3.5GHz 8‑core Intel Xeon W processor, 4.0GHz Turbo Boost, a Radeon Pro 580X with 8GB of GDDR5 memory – and that’s only for starters.
So, that only scratches the surface?
There’s almost too much going on, but for the tech wizards of the world, the customisable Mac Pro is for those who need a high-performance graphics architecture that’s critical to their work flows. Especially for tasks like animating 3D film assets, compositing 8K scenes, and building lifelike gaming environments. Clearly, it’s for professionals, and it even has a MPX Module (an industry first) for graphic cards to maximise that power. Throw in a Radeon Pro Vega II Duo (labelled the world’s most powerful graphic card), and we’re not sure how much more it can progress.
Right, spill the price beans...
The starting price of Apple’s beast is at Dhs22,999. That’s pricey enough, but for the big spenders – adding everything from a 28-core Intel Xeon processor and Pro Vega II to a 1.5TB memory and wheels to its stainless steel frame – it will set you back Dhs226,228. At that price, we’d hope you would never feel the need to keep an eye on Apple’s next Mac Pro update.
