New vase-like Mac Pro promises more performance in a smaller package

Apple has announced that the all-new Mac Pro desktop computer will be available starting tomorrow. The new Mac Pro, which was unveiled back in June, looks more like a vase to put flowers or store your umbrella with its cylinder-shaped design than a computer.
 
Apple says that the new Mac Pro is 9.9-inches tall and only 1/8 of the volume of the outgoing model. The machines use a variety of Intel Xeon processors with four, six, eight, or twelve cores inside. The processors support Turbo Boost technology and operate at speeds up to 3.9GHz.

 
Apple is using two-workstation class AMD FirePro GPUs inside the Mac Pro promising up to eight times the graphics performance of previous generation devices.  The computer also uses PCIe-based storage (up to 1TB) for enhanced performance.
 
Pricing for the Mac Pro starts at $2,999 for a machine with a quad-core Xeon E5 processor, FirePro D300 GPU, 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. Bumping up to a 6-core Xeon X5, FirePro D500 GPUs, 16GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage will start at $3,999.
