Apple unveiled their new Apple Mac Pro 2013 edition earlier this year at their WWDC event, unveiling a very unique casing and cooling design.
However no launch date or prices has been announced for the Apple Mac Pro 2013 system and Japan-based Mac People magazine just couldn’t wait any longer for Apple to release the systems and have created their very own 3D printed version of the Apple Mac Pro 2013 to be included in photos.
The 3D printer model of the Apple Mac Pro 2013 has been created from just what was announced by Apple on the day and from the specifications they have published to date.
Apple unveiled back in June 2013 that the new Apple Mac Pro is equipped with ultrafast four-channel DDR3 memory, as well as the ability to install up to 12 cores of processing power, up to 40GB/s of PCI Express generation 3 bandwidth, and 256-bit-wide floating-point instructions. Together with new PCI Express-based flash controller technology within the Apple Mac Pro to deliver the fastest solid-state drives available standard in a desktop computer, says Apple.
The Apple Mac Pro now also features dual AMD FirePro workstation-class graphics cards with up to 6GB of dedicated VRAM supporting three 4K video displays while simultaneously rendering effects in the background. To cool all this raw power inn the Apple Mac Pro Apple have created a new cooling system and ingenious unified thermal core that is built around a single piece of extruded aluminium designed to maximise airflow as well as thermal capacity, explains Apple.
“An incredible amount of innovation went into designing a fan system capable of cooling such a high-performance device. Instead of adding extra fans, we engineered a single, larger fan that pulls air upward through a bottom vent. As air passes vertically through the center of the device, it absorbs heat and carries it out the top. It’s simple and elegant — and also astonishingly quiet. To achieve that, we had to consider every detail: the number of blades, the size of the blades, the spacing of the blades, and even the shape of the blades. By minimizing air resistance throughout the system, we were able to design a fan with backward-curved impeller blades that runs at fewer revolutions per minute, draws air more efficiently as it spins, and creates considerably less noise.”
Ports on the new Apple Mac Pro include Thunderbolt 2, USB 3, Gigabit Ethernet, and HDMI 1.4 ports, and allows you to connect huge amounts of storage if required, as well as PCI expansion chassis, and each Thunderbolt 2 port enables you to daisy-chain up to six peripherals, offering a total of 36 external devices via Thunderbolt connectivity.
