Mac Pro Speed Bumped

MacPro_6.12Apple released three new Mac Pro configurations:

– 3.2GHz quad-core, 6GB RAM, 1TB HDD, ATI Radeon 5770 graphics
– 2.4GHz 12-core, 12GB RAM, 1TB HDD, ATI Radeon 5770
– 3.2GHz quad-core, 8GB RAM, 2 x1TB HDD, ATI Radeon 5770 (server)

3 free PCIe slots and external connections are almost identical with the pervious Mac Pros but new CPUs and faster RAM addressing bring up to 1.5 x performance upgrade against the previous generation. Avid is already testing the new machines and we will have a 12-core machine with SSD and 32GB RAM soon to test with our HDX3 demo system.
