Apple mac pro

Apple's modular design workstation computer, the Mac Pro, is getting an updated graphics processing card (GPU) configuration. Now, the previously selectable AMD Radeon Pro Vega II or Pro Vega II Duo options are gone and replaced with AMD Radeon Pro W6900X, Radeon Pro W6800X, and Radeon Pro 6800X Duo GPUs. The three latest graphics processing cards are additional options from the three existing GPU configurations, namely AMD Radeon 580X (basic configuration), W5500X, and W5700X. In terms of specifications, the Radeon Pro W6900X has the highest capability. This GPU is more or less on par with the Radeon RX 6900 XT which has 80 compute units (CUs) and 5,120 stream processor units.

The difference is, the boost speed is lowered slightly to 2,171 MHz, but the RAM capacity is doubled to 32 GB (GDDR6). Meanwhile, the Radeon Pro W6800X carries almost identical specifications to the Radeon RX 6800 XT with 60 CUs and 3,840 stream processor units.

The difference is again in the boost speed which is "circumcised" slightly to 2,087 MHz, with increased RAM up to 32 GB (GDDR6). Finally, there is the Radeon Pro W6800X Duo which, as the name suggests, is a combination of the two Radeon Pro W6800X units, but is designed in one GPU module. This graphics card is equipped with 64 GB of GDDR6 RAM. The three new graphics cards also carry Apple's latest module called the MPX Module, which allows the use of two GPU units at once in one Mac Pro computer, for example two Radeon W6900X GPU units or two Radeon W800X Duo units. Each GPU is equipped with three Thunderbolt 3 ports and one HDMI 2.0 port, and can be added with two additional Thunderbolt 3 ports on the Mac Pro.

Moving on to the output sector to screen, the AMD Radeon Pro W6900X and W6800X support up to six 4K displays at once, three 5K displays, or 3 6K Pro Display XDR displays.

While the AMD Radeon Pro W6800X Duo supports eight 4K displays at once, four 5K displays, or six 6K Pro Display XDR. Apple Mac Pro is equipped with a Radeon Pro 580X GPU in its standard configuration. To get one of the three Radeon Pro W6000 series GPUs above, potential buyers must spend additional funds. The Radeon Pro W6900X GPU must be paid for with an extra 5,600 US dollars (approximately IDR 80 million), as summarized by KompasTekno from GSMArena, Thursday (5/8/2021). Then for each variant of the Radeon Pro W6800X and W6800X Duo GPUs, you can buy them by adding US$2,400 (around Rp. 34.3 million) and US$4,600 (around Rp. 65.8 million).
