Apple’s new U.S. built Mac Pro will reportedly be assembled in facilities run by Singapore-based Flextronics. The report did not specify the exact assembly location for the new cylindrical powerhouse, aside from noting the U.S. manufacturing.
Purported details on production of Apple’s new Mac Pro were reported this week by the Economic Daily News, and highlighted byMacotakara. It was said that the information was shared by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, who has a strong track record in predicting Apple’s future product plans.
Flextronics website lists facilities in a number of U.S. locations, including Texas, California, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and both North and South Carolina.
Moving Mac Pro assembly duties to Flextronics is not expected to have a major negative impact on Foxconn, Apple’s assembly partner responsible for previous Mac Pro models (as well as iOS devices), as the high-end computer is targeted to a relatively small market of professionals.
Apple offered a sneak-peek at the redesigned Mac Pro at its Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday. The pro-level machine is scheduled to arrive later this year, and will sport a pair of workstation graphics cards, 6 Thunderbolt 2.0 ports, PCI Express flash storage, and a Xeon processor, resulting in a machine capable of outputting to an impressive three 4K displays simultaneously.
