Apple goes into extreme detail about its new Mac Pro in a white paper released today. Anyone seeking an answer to an obscure question about this workstation can look through this 46-page Technology Overview.

Go in depth with the Mac Pro Technology Overview

Apple’s website covers the high points of the 2019 Mac Pro, which debuted in December. That’s where you can find out that there’s room for 1.5 TB of RAM. Or get the basics on the 28-core Intel Xeon processor.

But those who want to know more can consult the Mac Pro Technology Overview. It covers details like what types of DIMMs are supported, and what type of rack this computer can be installed in. Plus, there’s a description of the Afterburner hardware accelerator expansion card. Every aspect of this computer is covered, in detail.

It isn’t all technical jargon, though. This white paper offers multiple pages of advice on configuring this workstation. This should come in handy for anyone feeling overwhelmed by the wide range of options of a computer that Apple says “presents virtually unlimited possibilities for customization and expansion.”

Also, there’s a section of the white paper about the Pro Display XDR. This goes into some depth on Apple’s 32-inch Retina 6K screen that was designed to pair with the Mac Pro.
