Two weeks with Apple’s behemoth Mac Pro

“2 weeks with the cheese grater Mac Pro has been rock solid so far,” Marques Brownlee reports via YouTube:

MacDailyNews Take: Damn, that’s a big, heavy box, but what a beautiful, tremendous beast lurks inside! (Yes, these videos are pure Mac porn.)


  1. It may be expensive, but I think Apple is going to make a killing with this Mac Pro. It looks really good and seems to have quite a bit of power. No need for water-cooling and the fans are relatively quiet. It might not be as powerful as some fully tweaked Windows PC where anything goes, but for the non-tech video editor, it should be absolutely rocking. Not everyone wants to go into the bios to set ram speed to shave a couple of seconds from a rendering. This Mac Pro will hopefully work right out of the box without any fuss. That is a terrific industrial design with function equal to form. I’ll go out and make an early prediction. I’m willing to bet Apple will sell as many Mac Pros as they can make. That monitor sure does look sweet and that magnetic stand connector is extraordinary. Although other companies are going to surpass this Mac Pro by taking what Apple has done just a bit further, it won’t stop Mac Pro sales. Good job, Apple. You’re truly back into the pro game.

    1. Are we sure the new Mac Pro does not have liquid cooling? Take a look at the heat sink images on Apple’s page:

      “A massive heat sink keeps the system cool, enabling it to run fully unconstrained. Heat pipes move heat away from the chip, dispersing it along aluminum fin stacks. While three axial fans move air through the system.”

      The word “pipes” implies liquid flow. A simple metallic heat sink would be much less efficient and this Mac appears to be _FINALLY_ designed for high sustained workloads without throttling.

      Someone who’s received their new xmas toy should confirm.
