Apple today introduced spec-bumped versions of the current Mac Pro and revealed that it is working on a "completely rethought" Mac Pro with Apple-branded pro displays that will launch after 2017.
As noted by Daring Fireball, the $2,999 model goes from 4 Xeon CPU cores to 6, and from dual AMD G300 GPUs to dual G500 GPUs. The $3,999 model goes from 6 CPU cores to 8, and from dual D500 GPUs to dual D800 GPUs. There are no other hardware changes, so Thunderbolt 3 ports remain notably lacking.
"If we've had a pause in upgrades and updates, we're sorry for that — what happened with the Mac Pro, and we're going to come out with something great to replace it," said Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller.
