This is the new Mac Pro and it's incredible.
It has a truly gorgeous design and remarkable performance to match.
It is the most powerful Mac we have ever created.
And to tell you all about it I'd like to invite John turn us to the stage John.
And we've designed this new Mac Pro for our customers who need the ultimate and see few performance.
So we're using a brand new Intel Xeon processor and it has up to twenty eight cores.
And to get every last ounce of performance out of this processor we're giving it over 300 watts of power and a massive heatsink for cooling so this means it can run fully unconstrained all the time now we also have an extremely high performance memory architecture Six channels of Superfast ECC memory in 12 dimm slots and table with Incredible one point five terabytes of system memory.
Now let's talk about expansion many of our Pro customers need to add things like fiber channel audio dsps or SDI video to their.
So we're bringing PCIe expansion back to the Mac in a big way.
[APPLAUSE] Because this new Mac Pro has eight internal PCIe slots.
There are four double wide slots and three single wide slots.
And there's one additional half length slot that we populate with an I/O card.
And this I/O card has two Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports and an audio jack.
And there are also two more Thunderbolt 3 ports conveniently located on the top of the system.
And finally the Mac Pro has two built-in 10Gb Ethernet ports.
So one of the most critical areas of expansion is graphics.
Graphics performance is so important for tasks like animating 3D film assets or compositing 8K scenes, or building complex 3D environments.
But we wanted to go beyond the typical graphics card design.
So we've invented something completely new.
Now it starts with an industry standard PCI connector.
So the slot maintains compatibility with standard cards.
But we've added a second connector, that allows us to integrate thunderbolt throughout the entire system and provide a tremendous amount of extra power.
In fact, at 500 watts, this module has the same power capacity as the entire previous generation Mac Pro.
And instead of adding it to a dedicated fan, you've a huge hitting that's is quietly cool by the thermo macro system.
We call this the macro expansion module or MPX for short.
And using this architecture,we're gonna offer multiple graphic options.
Starting with the Radeon Pro 580 X, the great [UNKNOWN] graphic card.
Prefer big upgrade in graphics performance, the Mac Pro can be configured with AMD's Radeon Pro Vega II.
And Vega II delivers 14 teraflops of graphics compute in 32 gigabytes of memory with an insane 1 terabyte per second of memory bandwidth.
But we didn't stop there because with the increased head room of the MPX module, we can actually use
To Vega to GPUs, for double the teraflops, double the the memory and double the memory bandwidth.
This is quite simply the world's most powerful graphics card.
Now these two GPUs are connected by the Infinity Fabric Link which allows data transfer between them at five times faster then the PCI Bus.
This is a really big deal for apps that are optimized to take advantage of multiple GPUs.
And, if all this wasn't crazy enough The macro can be configured with two of these modules.
Enabling up to 56 teraflops and 128 gigabytes of high bandwidth memory.
This is an unbelievable amount of graphics compute in a single workstation.
Now we've also done something really special for video editing.
One of the challenges in working with high quality cameras is the need to convert the native files into proxys for easier editing.
This is a time consuming and error prone process.
Being able to work directly with the native formats would be a game changer in these high end work loads.
So we built a brand new card that we call Afterburner, and it turns your Mac Pro into a monster of a video editing machine.
Afterburner is a hardware accelerator card that's built with an FPGA which is a programmable AC and this AC is capable of processing 6 billion pixels per second.
[APPLAUSE] So with this custom solution, we have achieved an unprecedented level of performance for the progress in progress.
ProRes rock codex.
The most powerful workstations in the world today struggle to playback just one stream of 8K video but with after burner, the new macro can play back an incredible three streams of 8K for a reservoir.
Or 12 streams of 4k this is ground breaking performance and in this we can finally say good bye to proxy work for us.
Now ofcourse all of this compute requires a massive amount of power and so we have given every Mac pro a 1.4 Kilo Watt power supply.
And of course, all that power requires a tremendously capable cooling system.
So the Mac Pro has three enormous fans and one large blower that together can generate up to 300 cubic feet per minute of air flow.
And it's very quiet.
In fact, when it's under your desk in typical load conditions, it's as quiet as an iMac Pro.
