Apple’s Mac Pro claims a quiet spec bump Radeon Pro W5500X GPU, 512GB SSD

Apple has quietly spec-bumped the aging Mac Pro, giving it more graphical power and more SSD storage in the base model.

The move, which comes after Apple announced the powerful Mac Studio, means that the entry-level Mac Pro is now more capable than ever while retaining its existing $5,999 asking price. The updated model now comes with 512GB of SSD storage as well as a Radeon Pro W5500X GPU from AMD.

Previously, the base Mac Pro came with just 256GB of storage and a Radion 580X GPU and the updated model applies to both the free-standing and rack-mounted versions of the workstation.

While Apple announced the Mac Studio during its March 8 event, it also gave a nod to the Mac Pro by saying that it was the last remaining machine still waiting for its Apple silicon refresh. While we don’t yet know for sure what that will entail or when it will be announced, expectations are that the machine will pack a chip even more capable than the new M1 Ultra — potentially even fusing two of them together to offer performance the likes of which we have yet to see.

While the updated GPU and storage for the base Mac Pro are obviously welcome, it’s still a hard sell considering the power and specifications offered by the Mac Studio machine Apple just announced. Even fully maxed out, that machine won’t cost much more than this Mac Pro and will offer considerably better performance. The Mac Studio is the best Mac Apple has ever made … until the new Mac Pro arrives, of course.
