Apple has showed a sneak peek into the future of the pro desktop with a first look at the next-generation Mac Pro. Designed around a unified thermal core, the Mac Pro introduces a new pro desktop architecture and design that is optimized for performance. The new 9.9-inch tall Mac Pro features next-generation Xeon processors, dual workstation-class GPUs, Thunderbolt 2, PCIe-based flash storage, and ECC memory.

The next-generation Mac Pro is architected around a unified thermal core that allows the desktop to efficiently share its entire thermal capacity across all the processors. Next generation Intel Xeon E5 processors with up to 12 core configurations deliver double the floating point performance. With two AMD FirePro workstation-class GPUs, the all-new Mac Pro is up to 2.5 times faster than the current Mac Pro and delivers up to seven teraflops of compute power. The new Mac Pro also features PCIe-based flash storage that is up to 10 times faster than conventional desktop hard drives and includes the latest four-channel ECC DDR3 memory running at 1866 MHz to deliver up to 60GBps of memory bandwidth.
