Apple’s 12-Core Mac Pro Arrives In Stores

by Ferman Aziz

Apple unveiled its new Mac line at the end of July and its 12-Core Mac Pro gained a lot of attention due to its upgraded power features. It took a few days to actually become available for eager consumers but it finally has. Apple took down its online store for a couple of hours on Monday and when it was restored, it came with the new beastly machine.

Priced at $ 4,999, the Mac Pro features two 2.66GHz six-core Intel Xeon Westmere processors, 6GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, and an ATI Radeon HD 5770 graphics card. You can update the processor from the 2.66GHz model to a 2.93GHz version owing to its impressive configuration options. It’s also possible to include up to 32GB of RAM, add a RAID card, and install several more hard drives.

Given the power of the system, it might also be a good idea to update the computer’s graphics cards to the dual ATI Radeon HD 5770 option. For those who want a single card, the ATI Radeon HD 5870 is also available. The upgrades can cost you a few more bucks but it’s worth every penny. So if you can dole out the cash you can order your new 12-Core Mac Pro here.
