Apple today unveiled the new Mac Studio and Mac Pro. The new Mac Studio is powered by M2 Max and the new M2 Ultra. The new Mac Pro is the final Mac to receive Apple Silicon, and the new Mac Pro now features the M2 Ultra, Apple’s most powerful chip.
The Mac Studio is up to 6x faster than the most powerful Intel-based 27-inch iMac and is up to 3x faster than the previous-generation Mac Studio, which used the M1 Ultra chip.
Apple says the Mac Studio with M2 Ultra and Mac Pro both have far more memory than the most advanced workstation graphics cards, featuring up to 192GB of unified memory.
Mac Studio with M2 Max features a 12-core CPU, up to a 38-core GPU, and up to 96GB of unified memory with 400GB/s of memory bandwidth. The new Mac Studio is up to 50% faster than the previous-generation Mac Studio and is up to 4x faster than the most powerful Intel-based 27-inch iMac.
The new Mac Studio now features higher-bandwidth HDMI, delivering up to 8K resolution and 240Hz frame rates. When equipped with an M2 Ultra, Mac Studio supports up to six Pro Display XDR monitors. Wi-Fi 6E delivers download speeds that are up to twice as fast as the previous generation, and also supports Bluetooth 5.3. The Mac Studio includes four Thunderbolt 4 ports, a 10Gb Ethernet port, an enhanced HDMI port, and two USB-A ports on the back. It also boasts two USB-C ports and an SD card slot on the front.
The new Mac Pro boasts Apple’s most powerful 24-core CPU, an up to 76-core GPU, and starts with twice the memory and SSD storage. It can also be configured with up to 192GB of memory with 800GB/s of unified memory bandwidth. Both the Mac Studio and Mac Pro can play up to 22 streams of 8K ProRes video.
The new Mac Pro provides PCIe expansion, with seven PCle expansion slots, with six open expansion slots that support gen 4, which is 2x faster than before.
The Mac Pro offers eight built-in Thunderbolt 4 ports — six on the back and two on the top — twice as many as before. It supports up to six Pro Display XDRs, along with Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3.
