While we’re still waiting for the new MacBook Air models, let’s talk about the Mac Pro and Mac Mini too.
Aside from the new and refresh of MacBook Air lineup, Apple also preparing for new Mac Pro and Mac Mini claims report.
Rumor has it that 16 core Mac Pro servers are now being delivered to Apple stores this week for demonstration purposes, other than inheriting the Thunderbolt port from Macbook Pros; the new 16 core Pro services will now be offered with the second generation Intel Xeon processor (with larger cache sizes) and best-of-all… will now offer eight executable cores for every chip!
If true, then that’s an extra four cores compared to the current Mac Pro line up that Apple is offering. New GTX580 and GTX590 graphics card from Nvidia are also available as an add-on, and (possibly) the first ever Mac to feature Blu ray optical drives.
Although the inclusion of Blu ray seems a little over the top, it is still possible. HD video recording is starting to become the norm and Apple knows that the Mac Pros are being used for multimedia editing, one way or another… they have to do something about it.
Also, Apple is said to be welcoming a new member of the Mac family — Mac Pro Server. 9to5Mac has stated that Apple has been in the works for a smaller version of the current Mac Pro for file-serving purposes, it does make sense since Apple has gone through Time Capsule and Airport Express availability constraints lately. And many consumers out there are obviously in search for cheaper alternatives for the Xserve, since blade servers are typically more expensively designed and needs a server cabinet to house the unit inside.
We’ll dwell deeper into the Apple empire so you’ll know when to start filling the hole in your pocket.
Confirmed: Apple launched a new Mac Mini, but no new Mac Pro. See the article about the new Mac Mini HERE.
