Meet the latest addition to the Mac Pro family: The world's first 3.0GHz, 8-core Intel Xeon-based Mac Pro. Consider the bar officially raised.

Performance standard

No matter which Mac Pro model you choose 8-core or quad-core Intel Xeon each delivers advanced performance, workstation graphics, and unparalleled expansion in so many possible configurations, your imagination has finally met its match.

Eight cores or four

Opt for the 8-core Mac Pro and you get the power of two Quad-Core Intel Xeon "Clovertown" processors running at 3.0GHz. Or choose a quad-core Mac Pro featuring two Dual-Core Intel Xeon "Woodcrest" processors and decide how fast they fly: 2.0GHz, 2.66GHz, or 3.0GHz. At 3.0GHz, the quad-core Mac Pro runs up to 2x faster than the Power Mac G5 Quad.

Unparalleled expansion

Mac Pro accommodates up to four drives and 3TB of storage, offers eight DIMM slots to fill with up to 16GB of RAM, and provides up to two SuperDrives. It also gives you four PCI Express slots and lots of I/O options for ultimate flexibility.

Killer graphics

Looking for high-performance workstation graphics? You've come to the right place. Three graphics card options let you choose the card that meets your specific needs. And every one lets you connect up to two displays, including at least one 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display.

More than 33 million possible configurations

You're the expert. With build-to-order options available for processors, graphics cards, memory, hard drives, optical drives, and other features and components, the ?ber-configurable Mac Pro lets you build your personal dream machine. The Mac you've been waiting for.
