Apple Launches Fastest-Ever Mac Pro

Macworld writes:

"Apple has introduced its fastest-ever professional Macs, introducing re-vamped versions of the Mac Pro and Xserve.

Available immediately, the new Mac Pro's offer eight processor cores and a new system architecture that the company claims offers "up to twice the performance of its predecessor". The new professional desktop Macs use two of Intel's brand-new 45-nanometre Quad-Core Xeon processors running at up to 3.2GHz.

These new Macs also offer much-improved graphics and up to 4TB of internal storage for creative professionals, with listed price starting at just £1,749 (including VAT)."

Actually not badly priced for Mac's. If they can now only get game developers to recognise them i can do away with sh!tty windows once and for all.

you do know that ALL the Macs now can run Windows as well and i know people who game running off parallels without a problem. you could dual boot too if you want

Exactly I have one of these with 6Gb RAM and I run Windows XP PLUS Fedora Core 7 WHILE I'm running Mac OS X. All these on different Spaces desktops (I have 2 desktops for Mac OS X, 1 for Xp and another for Linux)

OR...

I reboot into that same Windows XP partition when I want to play Windows only games.

Pretty sweet setup, love it.

yeah, i have Windows running off parallels but i don't game with it. i use it just for the PS3 Theme editor. if they had a Mac version i would have never put Windows on my Mac.

That is worth it...But is it starting at 1749? I think it might be...but if u duel boot with windows then can you play games? Like crysis, half life, doom3 etc?
Daaam I maxed out the settings and it added up to $27,339.90! heres the link:

with Windows installed you can do EVERYTHING available on Windows. just make sure you have good specs like RAM.

SaiyanFury3513d ago (Edited 3513d ago )

I don't know if you meant dollars, but the price is actually in pounds in case you didn't know that. That makes the price twice that of 1749 US dollars. Scaaary.

since well I just can't leave Windows and I've tried but now that MACS can run side by side with windows OS, I have been thinking about it but these prices are holding me back...

I wanna see a review on this puppy..

I'm running one of the "older" 2 x dual core xeon's @ 2.66 ghz with 6 gigs of ram + 1.5 TB in RAID 0, and I still haven't found anything that slows this thing down - particularly after I archived/installed leopard.
I used to run windows in bootcamp, then I ran parallels for a while but just haven't had a need to boot up into my windows install for months (not much of a pc gamer). these pro's are some of the best machines you can buy for the money, but they don't come cheap. Still - well worth the dough, particularly if you do any kind of film/audio editing.

BloodySinner3513d ago

Those are some serious specs.
