Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR

Pro Display XDR

Apple's new 32-inch display is intended to replace both reference and working displays for video editors. It's a true HDR 10-bit panel at 6K resolution that can hit 1,600 nits at peak brightness and sustained 1,000 nits. Because it must be named, the 6,016x2,284 resolution version is now "6K Retina." It's still about 215 ppi, though.

Pro Display XDR

Apple increases the brightness by boosting the blue backlight and using local dimming.

Pro Display XDR stand

Apple also made an overdesigned stand that you can buy for $1,000, but at least you can raise, lower, swivel and rotate the display.
