One of the highlights of Apple’s World Wide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) this year was the announcement of what’s described as the comeback of the most powerful Mac in the Cupertino giant’s computer line-up.

Dubbed as the new 2019 Mac Pro, the model is marketed as a significant improvement to the rather disastrous Mac Pro back in 2013. Apple’s latest desktop computer is an ode to previous models, incorporating a touch of classic design such as the “cheese grater” look. Of course, it stands as a new model by improving on interior features, adding much-needed modularity and flexibility that make the Mac Pro 2019 a powerful working tool.

The improvements are definitely impressive. You can find a new Intel Xeon processor inside the Mac Pro which has up to 28 cores and 300W of power that’s complemented with heavy-duty cooling. This means that the computer can run flawlessly for a long time without worry of any heating malfunction.

For system memory, Apple claims that it can be maxed to 1.5TB with six-channel memory via 12 DIMM slots. The Mac Pro comes with two USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 and two USB-A ports. This is one USB-C more than what other new desktop systems offer today.

One of the best features is what Apple calls the MPX Module, which basically allows owners to customize the expansion of features of the new computer. With a dedicated Thunderbolt 3 backbone that Apple built into the motherboard, users can actually expand the capabilities of the Mac Pro 2019 by adding power and high-speed connectivity to various components.

Per The Verge, the MPX Module is a giant quad-wide PCIe card with two graphics cards and has a dedicated heat sink and a custom Thunderbolt connector to hook into the backbone. According to Apple, the Mac Pro can be upgraded with AMD’s Radeon Pro Vega 2 or Radeon Pro Vega 2 Duo, or use both to give you a powerful Mac with four GPUs and 128GB of HBM2 graphics memory.

What’s more, you can also buy additional Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports and a 3.5mm audio jack plus an “Afterburner” that will prove useful for the design industry as it offers a dedicated video editing card which can process up to 6 billion pixels per second.

Now, a powerful computer like the Mac Pro 2019 doesn't come cheap, and the exact price is $5,999 for the base model alone. Expect additional dollars to be paid if you want the full power we just mentioned.

Apple’s newest computer will be available this fall.
