Mac Pro Update Rumored to Be Imminent

9to5mac.com reports that Apple will revamp the Mac Pro next week.

UPDATE: with some shock, professional users have seen Apple disregard their needs by offering nothing new in the Mac Pro line at WWDC in June 2012. The Mac Pro is now almost 2 years old.

 

UPDATE: speculative part numbers.

This is an unconfirmed RUMOR, which I report only because (a) it makes sense, and (b) we should know by next week, and (c) it’s worth delaying any buying plans by one week in hopes of a significantly faster or improved model.

I do hope that Apple brings to market the top-speed CPUs, instead of mid-range ones, as is the case with the current models (2.93 GHz 12-core vs 3.46 GHz possible, though OWC can upgrade the Mac Pro to 12 X 3.46 GHz).

Whether next week will bring an announcement with immediate availability, an announcement with delayed availability, or nothing at all remains to be seen.

Reviewing a new Mac Pro

I will review any new Mac Pro in depth as a priority, but sometimes the higher-performing models are delayed in shipping to customers.

Since I have to buy a Mac Pro in order to review it, I will only be reviewing the top-flight model, which would become my daily workstation; I use my Mac Pro 8+ hours a day usually 7 days a week, so for me the top-end model is the only choice.

See my in-depth review of the 2010 Mac Pro Westmere.

MPG Pro Workstation

The MPG Pro Workstation offering will of course be revamped to take into consideration any new Mac Pro capabilities, once I’ve had a chance to test the new models.
