Rumor has it that the new Mac Pro 2013 will be completely redesigned. It has consistently been rumored for the past couple of weeks that Apple is going to unveil the brand new Mac Pro at WWDC 2013. The company had confirmed back in December that it would indeed be releasing a revamped version this year, though as always, it didn’t offer any specific time frame. While the announcement is expected at WWDC 2013, the Mac Pro is reportedly going to arrive this fall.
Apart from the new design, the new Mac Pro 2013 is said to support dual GPU, making it capable of supporting three monitors from the get go. There will supposedly be no Firewire 800, optical drive or ability to expand internal hardware. Thunderbolt I/O is expected to be on board. I’m not sure how desktop users will respond to the idea of not being able to pop the hood and make hardware changes, that has been one of the most quintessential benefits of owing a desktop. It is also rumored that perhaps the hard drive will be removed in favor of flash storage that Apple currently installs on its laptops. Since obviously none of this is official, we’ll have to wait and see how many of these rumors actually turn out to be true.
