As the strongest computer on the surface, Apple’s Mac Pro series is top-level from design to configuration, and the price is one word – expensive. The 2019 version of the Mac Pro top version costs almost 400,000 yuan, but don’t worry, Apple said its performance has also improved by 6.5 times, which is excellent value for money.

The latest Mac Pro was released in October last year and was officially launched on December 11. It is divided into two designs: tower and rack, with prices starting from 47,999 yuan/51,999 yuan respectively.

In terms of configuration, the low-end Mac Pro is equipped with an 8-core 16-thread Intel Xeon W series processor, 32GB of memory, 256GB SSD, and a Radeon Pro 580X graphics card.

The top Mac Pro with 28-core CPU + 1.5T memory + 4TB hard disk + Apple accelerator card is priced at 390,043 yuan. The real surface is the most expensive + the strongest surface, which is amazing.

The Mac Pro package includes the Mac Pro body, power cord, USB-C to Lightning cable, and Magic Mouse + Keyboard.

In short, the top-end Mac Pro plus the Pro Display XDR monitor will cost 500,000 in a set, which is impossible for ordinary people to buy.

In the performance test, Apple compared the Mac Pro 2019 version with the Mac Pro 2013 version, the former equipped with up to 28-core Xeon and the latter with up to 12-core Xeon processors.
