Mac Pro - Computer Definition
Apple's professional workstation, introduced in late 2013. Not to be confused with the MacBook Pro laptop (see MacBook), the Mac Pro is a cylinder-shaped, tabletop machine with four to 12 Intel Xeon CPU cores. It is Apple's top-end computer supporting up to 64GB of memory, 1TB of solid state storage (SSD) and three 4K displays. Designed for video editing and rendering, it features dual AMD FirePro graphics processors (GPUs) with up to 6GB of dedicated memory. In 2006, the first-generation Mac Pro was Apple's first family of high-end computers powered by Intel x86 chips rather than PowerPC. It superseded the Power Mac G5 series.
