Mac Pro was released about 4 years ago from now and the world experienced a new era of powerful seamless computers and servers in a compact design. With no major upgrade after its release, it seemed like Apple is not having an interest in the up gradation process of its most powerful computer of that time. But now, Apple has announced a newer version and rumors suggest that it will be based on a modular design to provide better up gradation.
A modular design basically means any object or gadget divided into sub-modules or parts having their individual importance. It means that if you have to upgrade your computer in a specific area, you won’t be replacing the whole machine for this purpose, rather only the weak part or the affected part will be replaced.
When Is The Modular Design Hitting The Market?
According to the rumors, new Mac Pro is expected to be released in 2018 due to which, the current version of Mac Pro has faced a major price decline. Also, according to the company, there may be some specification upgrades in it which seems like a pretty fair deal by the Cupertino team. These upgrades include an 8-core processor coupled with dual FirePro D700 graphics for just $3,999. Talking about the price cut for its current 6-core Intel Xeon processor and dual AMD FirePro D500 graphics system, they will be priced at a lower tag of $2,999.
Apple’s Views Regarding The Users’ Concerns
Phil Schiller, who is the Vice President for Apple’s worldwide marketing, exclaimed that Apple is working hard on the matter of improving their Mac Pro. To quote his exact wordings, it goes like:
“We’re working on it. We have a team working hard on it right now, and we want to architect it so that we can keep it fresh with regular improvements, and we’re committed to making it our highest-end, high throughput desktop system, designed for our demanding pro customers.”
