Mac ProOn Monday Phil Schiller, Apple’s head of marketing, took the stage at the company’s developer conference providing users with a sneak peak of the new Mac Pro desktop PC.

The updated Mac Pro will offer impressive performance in a manageable form. The device opts for an entirely new architecture and will be equipped with an Intel Xeon E5 processor; with standard dual AMD workstation discrete graphics processors, and will support 4k ultra-high definition displays at launch. The device will also offer impressive connectivity and data retrieval with Thunderbolt 2 and PCIe-based flash storage. According to Apple, the new Mac Pro will achieve all of this in a form factor that is roughly one eighth the size of the pervious Mac Pro.

With its impressive array of specs, Apple is boasting that the new Mac Pro will provide speeds up to 2.5 times faster than the current Mac Pro with up to 7 teraflops of computer power. Unfortunately, while Apple did reveal a great deal about its upgraded desktop, the company did not reveal a price point.  

Has Apple found the form factor of the future? We’ll find out soon as the device is expected to release later this year.
