Apple has announced that its upcoming MacBook Pro, which has just received a refresh with a new CPU, a new GPU and Thunderbolt 3 support, will also get a new Mac Mini and Mac Pro.
The new Mac Pro has been dubbed “Mac Mini 2.0” and comes with a quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, a 16GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, a 256GB PCIe SSD and a 1.5GHz Thunderbolt 3 connection.
It also has Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, and it will be available starting this Friday.
It’s not the first Mac Pro refresh, however.
Apple’s previous Mac Pro, the Mac Mini 2, has been out for a few weeks now, with the most recent refresh being the new Mac Air.
That Mac Air has Thunderbolt 4 connectivity and it was released on April 30.
In case you missed it, here’s the full press release:We’ve seen the Mac Pro and Mac Mini refresh with an AMD Radeon RX 560, which is an all-new GPU that’s based on AMD’s new Vega architecture.
The Radeon RX 460 is based on the latest Polaris GPU, which we’ve seen Apple debuting at Computex.
And the Radeon RX 580 is based off the Vega 64 GPU, and we’ve already seen it in the new MacBook Pro.
We’ve also seen a new “M” in the Radeon logo, which means “mixed GPU.”
And the Mac Air and MacBook Air 2 are based on Radeon Vega GPU chips.
So far, there’s no other Mac Pro refreshes that offer all-time-high performance.
The Thunderbolt 3/4K Thunderbolt 3 ports are still very limited, and the USB-C ports are also still limited.
The Radeon RX560 is the new chip from AMD.
The GeForce 1030 GPU is based around the new Polaris GPU.
The Mac Pro with the Radeon Fury X GPU is AMD’s latest Mac Pro GPU.
And we know Apple is working on a new version of its Thunderbolt 3 port.
We know Apple plans to make Thunderbolt 3 a standard in its new Mac Pros this year.
The GPU is already available for purchase, but the Radeon Vega 64 is still a possibility.
The Mac Mini is based upon AMD’s RX580.
The new Mac is based in part on the new Vega 64.
The “M”-shaped design is Apple’s new “m” logo, and there’s also the Radeon Polaris logo.
And the Mac Pros will come with a pair of new Thunderbolt 3-based Thunderbolt 3 docks, which Apple describes as “one-way” connectors.
That means that if you buy a new Thunderbolt dock for your Mac Pro you’ll be able to plug it in to your Mac Mini or Mac Pro without having to remove the case or remove any ports.
Apple will ship these Thunderbolt 3 connectors with the Mac mini.
